Adam Thielen Ranks High When Targeted

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen ranked third last season in passer rating when targeted, according to Pro Football Focus. Despite missing some time due to a hamstring injury that relegated him to just 10 games, quarterback Kirk Cousins maintained a 131.9 when looking toward the 29-year-old veteran in 2019 and also did not record an interception when targeting him. The expectations are mixed for the veteran in 2020 despite the departure of Stefon Diggs, with the seventh-year man expected to concede plays to running back Dalvin Cook in addition to fighting for Cousin's attention with the newly acquired Tajae Sharpe and rookie Justin Jefferson.

Adam Thielen Has Five Catches For 50 Yards

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught five of seven targets for 50 yards in a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday. Thielen didn't appear to be slowed down by his recent injury but was unable to get much going as the 49ers Defense suffocated the Vikings offense all game long. Thielen had a very disappointing season as he missed a lot of time with a hamstring injury and finished with just 30 catches for 418 yards and six touchdowns on the year. He's best viewed as a WR2 heading into next year's fantasy drafts as his potential ceiling is capped with Stefon Diggs stealing looks and Dalvin Cook commanding a lot of touches out of the backfield.

Adam Thielen Is Active Against 49ers

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for Saturday's Divisional round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Thielen suffered a cut to his ankle on Wednesday that required stitches, but he will suit up for the do-or-die game, as expected. Stefon Diggs (illness) is also active. Both receivers face a daunting matchup in the 49ers Defense as they rank second in pass DVOA and are returning three starters from injury. Thielen may be the better play of the two as he has always produced better than Diggs against zone coverage, but both profile as risky options in this difficult matchup on the road.
