With two straight top-10 finishes at the position, it's time to give Adam Thielen some serious respect. An expert route runner with a gigantic catch radius, Thielen was literally unstoppable during a historic first half of the 2018 season. He tied Calvin Johnson for the most consecutive 100-yard receiving games with 8, added 6 touchdowns, and recorded a mind boggling 89 targets during that span. While Thielen owners were rejoicing over the start to the season, fantasy seasons last longer than 8 weeks. And that's too bad, as Thielen's second half looked nothing like the first.

Over the final 8 games of the season, Thielen only had one more double digit game, and scored only three more touchdowns. The offensive inconsistency threw the Vikings into a tailspin from which they couldn't recover. Despite the amazing start, it's more than likely Thielen's poor second half cost those same teams fantasy titles.

All is not lost however! While I do think 2018 will likely go down as Thielen's career year, there is plenty of reason to believe he's still worthy of being a WR1 in fantasy. He's a format all-star, as he's sure to pace the Vikings in receptions for the third straight year, and is sure to push for 6+ touchdowns and 1200 yards. Thielen showed a great rapport with Cousins last season, and his technical and physical gifts make him impossible to completely shut out. He might not be exciting, but he is as reliable and productive as any receiver in the league, and you are still likely to nab him with great value in your draft.
