Thielen notched 69 receptions and nearly 1,000 yards last year despite starting only 10 games. It is clear that he and Sam Bradford have a connection, which should be trusted heading into this season. While Diggs is technically the #1 for Minnesota, it is quite possible Thielen ends up leading the Vikings in receiving again.The Patriots just have too many weapons to start Mitchell from week to week. He may have some big weeks here and there, but until we see him on the field more consistently, he is purely a lottery ticket.

Despite breakout season, still behind Diggs and Rudolph on Bradford's target list.

Thielen proved to be a consistent fantasy player last season and should be a top target in the Vikings' offense once again. 
Staff Rankings
QB List
It wouldn't be shocking to see Thielen overtake Stefon Diggs as the number one passing option in the Vikings offense, especially since he saw just 20 fewer targets than Diggs last year but finished with more yards. Sam Bradford isn't a great quarterback, but he's had a full year in the Vikings offense, he should be better prepared this year than he was once he was thrown into the team last year, and with that will come an increase in production for Thielen I believe.

Thielen popped in the second half of the season in 2016. He could very well take over as the top option in the passing game in 2017. Auction Value $9The addition of Cooks limits Mitchell's upside for 2017. Auction Value $1
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite the fact that I'm a huge Stefon Diggs fan, one cannot escape the fact that Thielen saw 20 fewer targets, yet finished with 64 more yards and two more touchdowns. Once Diggs moved into the slot, Thielen started to do most of his damage, including his 202-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 16 against the Packers. He's still got a lot to prove, but 2016 was incredibly promising for the former undrafted free agent.  
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He showed flashes of greatness, but he isn't consistent enough to start on a regular basis. He has his best games when Diggs is out. Big contract was just signed so they plan on using him a bunch, I've moved him way up.Great talent, but there are so many other targets in NE his upside is limited.
