2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
About to be on the north side of 30, Thielen seemed to be supplanted as the team's No.1 option last year by a fella named Justin Jefferson. Thielen, who was coming off an injury marred 2019, was just 24th among receivers in receptions and yardage. So what carried him to a top-10 finish at the position? A career high 14 touchdowns, something that is nearly impossible to duplicate or count on for 2021. Touchdown scoring is always a fickle stat in fantasy, so for receivers, it comes down to targets and receptions, and expect those numbers to rebound some for Thielen. I expect defenses to shift their gaze to Jefferson a bit more this year, and that should open up Thielen for more looks than he's seen in a few years. Sure, he's lost a bit of that downfield explosion, but his elite body control, hands, and rapport with Cousins in the redzone is more than enough to make him a WR1 standard league candidate in an offense with diverse threats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Adam Thielen lands on injured reserve
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 29, 12:48 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The #Vikings placed Adam Thielen on injured reserve after he had surgery on his left ankle (@ChadGraff first on that). Thielen re-aggravated the injury on Sunday, and will obviously miss the final two games of the regular season. (Ben Goessling on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen re-aggravated his ankle injury in Week 16 and will now miss the next three weeks after landing on IR. K.J. Osborn will fill in for Thielen and start opposite Justin Jefferson against the Packers. Osborn is a viable Flex option the last two weeks of the regular season.


Injury Adam Thielen ruled Out, Dalvin Cook Questionable for Thu.
Cook limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 8, 2:01 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings officially ruled out WR Adam Thielen for Thursday night’s game vs. the Steelers and listed RB Dalvin Cook as questionable. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Cook is going to be a gametime decision. It would make sense for the Vikings to hold him out on a short week but Cook has come back from previous injuries earlier than expected. Alexander Mattison would be an RB1 if Cook sits. K.J. Osborn should see increased targets with Thielen sidelined.


Injury High ankle sprain for Adam Thielen
Vikings play Thursday night in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 5, 8:39 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings’ WR Adam Thielen suffered a high ankle sprain during today’s loss at Detroit, per source. He will undergo further testing Monday to determine how much time he’ll miss. Vikings have short week with Thursday night game vs. Steelers. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen finished with 1 catch for zero yards on 2 targets. He was injured in the first quarter which allowed K.J. Osborn to step in and see 7 targets, finishing with a 4-47-1 line. He'll be a viable option next week against the Steelers.
