Adam Thielen News
The Minnesota Vikings signed wide receiver Adam Thielen to a four-year contract extension worth at least $64 million on Friday. The deal could be worth up to $73 million and keeps him under contract through 2024. Thielen finished fourth in the league last year with 113 catches for 1,373 yards and also tied an NFL record by starting the season with eight straight 100-yard games. The 28-year-old is an excellent weapon in fantasy leagues, both standard and PPR, and should remain so for the 2019 season with Kirk Cousins still throwing him passes. He's tied for third in the NFL with 82 third-down catches and is tied for seventh in both catches and receiving yards since the start of 2014.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen's agent, Blake Baratz, thinks his client and two-time Pro Bowler could reach an extension with the team this offseason. Thielen signed a four-year deal worth $19.246 million in 2017 that will pay him around $8 million in 2019. He has outplayed his contract after setting career highs in catches (113), yards (1,373) and touchdowns (nine). Thielen just keeps improving season after season and has become a strong WR2 in point-per-reception leagues. It helps that he'll be working with quarterback Kirk Cousins again in 2019.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was not able to do much of anything versus the Chicago Bears in Week 17. Thielen caught three of his four targets for 38 yards and was unable to find the end zone. He finished the season with 113 receptions, 1,373 yards, and nine touchdowns. All of those are career highs for Thielen and he has a great chance to repeat himself in 2019.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen had a solid day, snagging 5-of-6 targets for 80 yards in the Week 16 win over the Detroit Lions. Thielen benefited from shutdown-cornerback Darius Slay shadowing Stefon Diggs all afternoon, but it was tight end Kyle Rudolph who got the majority of the targets and receiving work in the must-win game for the Vikings. Though he has been held under 100 receiving yards in five of his last six contests, he is still averaging a ridiculous 94 receiving yards per game in 2018. Thielen faces off against the Chicago Bears in Week 17, and he should be viewed as an upper-tier WR2 in that crucial matchup.
Minnesota Vikings wideout Adam Thielen hauled in two receptions for 19 yards during a blowout 41-17 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. Thielen was only targeted twice in the game, by far his lowest figure of the season. Thielen has been one of the top fantasy players throughout the entire campaign, but this performance was miserable. He now has under 30 receiving yards in three of his past six games. Thielen still has 105 receptions on the season to go along with 1255 yards and nine touchdowns. With that in mind, his recent inconsistency makes him a low-end WR1 for a Week 16 matchup with the Detroit Lions.
