Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Stefon Diggs being traded to the Buffalo Bills, Thielen has an incredible opportunity in front of him right now. While Justin Jefferson will take away some targets, Thielen's in line for a huge season. As long as he can stay healthy, he'll be a borderline WR1 all year.Kupp was insanely productive through the first half of 2019, but he wasn't putting up anywhere close to the same type of numbers through the back half of last year. From Weeks 1-8, Kupp was the WR2 in all of fantasy football. However, from Weeks 9-17, Kupp was the WR31. His snaps decreased as the offense changed and he simply wasn't as productive. All indications are that the Rams offense is going to be the same as it was at the end of last year, which means Kupp is being insanely over-drafted this year. He'll have his big games here or there, but you may end up being disappointed that you drafted Kupp in 2020 at his current draft spot.

If he stays healthy, I think he could lead the league in targets. Up. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Hard to view MIN passing game and not expect massive target share for Thielen if he can stay healthy - played 16 games 5 straight seasons before 6 DNPs in 20197th among WRs in FAN PPG over past 2 seasons (min. 24 games) - that track record and likely Top 10 target load in 2020 makes him ADP bargain (No. 12 WR)
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Coming off a year in which he played just 10 games while dealing with back issues, many are down on Thielen. You must remember he posted back-to-back 1,200-plus yard seasons before 2019. Not just that, but with the teams forced to stay away from camps, Kirk Cousins won't have much time to develop chemistry with any of the other receivers, so Thielen should be a target monster. He should have a bounceback season.Remember last year when Kupp was the No. 2 wide receiver through eight weeks? While he scored touchdowns in five straight games to close out the season, he was the No. 44 wide receiver from Weeks 9-16. It does help that Brandin Cooks is gone, but the emergence of Tyler Higbee is what cooled Kupp off. The Rams seem to change things quite often, so you'd draft Kupp as a WR2 hoping they target him like they did at the start of 2019.

Adam Thielen is a fake value and that entire Vikings offense is going to be a mess post-Diggs. Don't bet on age 30 bounceback years from injury at a top 4 round price. @FF_RyanB 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thielen ended up missing 6 games due to injury and he finished with 424 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns. He should rebound from that with a healthy 2020 season, but he is more of a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in an offense that features RB Dalvin Cook.Kupp had 1,165 yards receiving and 10 receiving touchdowns in 2019. He is a very talented wide, but he is volatile playing with QB Jared Goff.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
The Vikings went from 6th to 30th in attempts following the firing of Defilipo and promotion of Kevin Stefansky. Cousins thrived in the new system, ranking 9th in play action pass attempts. Thielen has seen a steady decline in targets dating all the way back to last year when Dalvin Cook returned from injury and the OC changes were made. Injuries have been an issue as well.Weeks 1-8: 87 targets, 10.8 targets/gm Weeks 10-17: 47 targets, 5.8 targets/gm How worried are we that the TE just replaced him?
