He was shot out of a cannon in '18, with 8 straight 100-yard games - have to worry about how much OC change (to curb pass game) impacted his final 8 games, though (56 rec. YPG)Proven fantasy RB Top 10 upside, and with T. Coleman off to SF, the backup vulture threat is less a threat than ever - it all comes down to health (if he plays close to a full season, he'll be a bargain)
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
It was really a tale of two seasons for Thielen in 2018. He started the year with 8 consecutive games of over 100 yards, averaging a stat line of 9.25/116/0.75. Over the final 8 games however, he had just one 100 yard game, averaging a stat line of 4.9/56/0.4. Theilen was the top scoring WR by 37 points over the first 8 games, but was just the WR 26 over the second half, ranking behind Zay Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Adam Humphries. So which version of Thielen will we see in 2019? Probably something in the middle. My projections love him. They have him with just under 100 receptions for around 1,400 yards and 7 TD's. If he can put together a season like that, then he's going to be well worth his late second round ADP.If you like lengthy injury histories, then let me introduce you to Devonta Freeman! Freeman has suffered a pulled hamstring, a hip strain, an MCL sprain, a PCL sprain, a knee bruise, 3 separate concussions, a foot bruise and then finally lost most of last year due to sports hernia surgery. Aside from his terrible rookie season, he's been extremely productive whole he's been on the field. Now let's talk about his offensive coordinator. Dirk Koetter has returned as the team's OC. He had that job from 2012-2014, then he was hired as the Bucs OC in 2015, and then served as their head coach from 1016-2018. In that time here is where his teams have ranked in rushing yards per game: 27/32/24/4/25/27/28. So in other words, Freeman is a RB with a high likelihood of injury, on an offense run by a man that has no idea how to run the football. What Freeman has going for him is 1) His talent...and 2) There's no one behind him on the depth chart. They have a few guys who can join together to fill potential void if he goes down, but they don't have a single RB that's going to challenge him for touches. Therefore, as long as he stays healthy, he's going to crush.

 "Devonta Freeman is in good health and hasn't had any setbacks at the start of the preseason. Based on how he has practiced, Freeman should be in line for a bounce-back campaign."
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Even though his teammate Diggs managed over 100 receptions, Thielen posted 113 to go with a career-high 1,373 yards and 9 scores. There is room for both of them to finish as top 12 fantasy wideouts seeing that the rest of the receiver corps is barren. Their upside is limited, however, unless one goes down with an injury.The Falcons have been banged up the last two years including Freeman himself but don't be surprised if this offensive line surges forward this year with all the talent they have. If that happens, Freeman could explode back into the top 10 fantasy running backs as we saw in 2015, 2016 and 2017 with his fantasy points per game.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was right to be a bit hesitant about Thielen last year, as it was going to be tough for both him and Stefon Diggs to be top-15 options. Fortunately, he and Diggs each saw at least 150 targets, allowing both of them to finish as top-10 options. They didn't add anyone to take targets away from them, outside of rookie tight end Irv Smith Jr., and we all know not to expect much out of rookie tight ends. It is worth noting, though, that after his hot start, Thielen was the WR23 from Week 9 through Week 16Do you remember Freeman's rookie year? Probably not, because it had him falling outside the top 35 running backs selected the following year. In that season, he totaled just 248 yards and one touchdown on 65 carries. That's significant because that's the only year he played under Dirk Koetter, who is now back in Atlanta as the coordinator. While Freeman will have a much bigger role, Koetter hasn't been able to boost a run-game during his time in Atlanta or Tampa Bay, so the ceiling has likely dropped for Freeman. And that's not to mention Ito Smith, whose role grew as the year went on in 2018
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thielen was the 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver with 113 receptions for 1,373 yards and 9 touchdowns. He should continue to be a WR2 with QB Kirk Cousins behind center, but the Vikings commitment to the running game at the end of the season may take away the targets Thielen needs to be a WR1.Freeman battled injuries in 2018 and he played only 2 games. He has RB1 value when healthy, but he is a huge durability risk in 2019 coming off a knee injury.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
The Vikings are going to have a new dedication to running the ball this season, but that doesn't mean there still won't be massive opportunities for Thielen in this offense. Kirk Cousins and Thielen clearly have chemistry together and there's no reason to doubt Thielen's ability to repeat as a Top-12 WR next season.We've seemingly forgotten about Devonta Freeman after his injury plagued 2018 season. Now, Freeman stands "alone" in that Atlanta backfield and is an incredible value in redraft leagues with his current ADP. Freeman's a solid bet for 240 carries and an increased volume in the passing game due to Tevin Coleman's absence. I'm drafting him wherever I can.
