Adam Thielen Expected To Miss Another One On Sunday

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is expected to be out against the Lions in Week 14. Thielen suffered the injury at the end of October and will likely miss his fourth straight after failing to log a practice this week. In his absence, expect more looks for Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, and Alexander Mattison on Sunday.

Adam Thielen Officially Inactive

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's Week 14 matchup against the Detroit Lions. The 29-year-old failed to practice this week after doing so in limited fashion last week. His absence will result in more opportunities for pass-catchers Stefon Diggs, Bisi Johnson, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith- all of whom have favorable matchups. Diggs and Rudolph, in particular, should both see boosts in their targets against Detroit.

Dalvin Cook Tallies 13th Rushing Touchdown

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 14's win over the Detroit Lions. He also caught both of his targets for 13 receiving yards. The score, Cook's league-leading 13th of the season, came on a three-yard scamper just before halftime. Cook received his normal workload and showed no ill-effects of the chest injury that sidelined him for the second half of Week 13's loss. Though he didn't explode for a monster day in this favorable matchup, fantasy owners will surely take the continued production from the stud third-year back. Keep firing up Cook as an elite RB1 for Week 15's road tilt with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Kyle Rudolph Has Touchdown Streak Snapped

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was very quiet in Week 14 as he picked up two catches for 11 yards in a win over the Detroit Lions. Rudolph came into the contest on a four-game touchdown streak but was not featured at all in the victory. Rookie tight end Irv Smith Jr. had more snaps, catches, and yards and wideout Olabisi Johnson snagged the game's only touchdown reception. Rudolph is still best viewed as a touchdown-dependent TE2 who's touchdown equity will definitely take a hit if Adam Thielen (hamstring) returns in Week 15.

Kirk Cousins Efficient In Victory

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-30 passes for 242 yards and one touchdown in Week 14's win over the Detroit Lions. Cousins rebounded from a tough Week 13 by completing 80% of his passes and finding 11 different receivers in a very efficient outing. He found rookie wideout Olabisi Johnson in the first quarter for his lone touchdown. Fantasy owners were surely expecting a bit more scoring from Cousins in this one, but the Vikings got up early and were in complete control from the get-go. Start Cousins with confidence as a QB1 in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
