Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will head into the offseason coming off a career regular season with 1,276 receiving yards and 91 receptions. He certainly showed up on the final drive of the Minnesota Miracle last week, but for the most part he had a quiet playoffs. He only caught three passes for 28 yards as the Vikings were trounced by the Eagles 38-7 and only registered 102 receiving yards in two playoff games. Thielen has emerged as a go-to receiver that runs great routes and can get himself open, but he will have to improve on catching only four touchdowns this season, and the Vikings quarterback uncertainty will muddle Thielen's fantasy value in the beginning portion of the NFL offseason.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (back) is dealing with a "couple of slight fractures" in his lower back but is active for the NFC Championship Game. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network confirmed that Thielen had fractures in his back, but he plans to gut it out against the Eagles in Sunday's NFC title game. Stefon Diggs could be in for a bigger workload this week with Thielen operating at much less than 100 percent. Quarterbacks Kyle Slotter and Teddy Bridgewater, running back Mack Brown, guard Danny Isidora, center Cornelius Edison, defensive end Tashawn Bower and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen are inactive for Sunday's game.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (back) is dealing with a "couple of slight fractures" in his lower back, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Thielen suffered the injury on a hit from Marshon Lattimore late in last week's win over New Orleans. Per Rapoport, Thielen's injury is "extremely painful," though he plans to gut it out against the Eagles in Sunday's NFC title game. Stefon Diggs could be in for a bigger workload this week with Thielen operating at much less than 100 percent.
