5th Down Fantasy
Top guy in SF, which isn't saying a ton; still a great PPR option, should see ton of volume; reunion with Kyle Shanahan a plus. Despite breakout season, still behind Diggs and Rudolph on Bradford's target list.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Garcon will be the No. 1 receiver in a Kyle Shanahan offense, so that usually spells a lot of fantasy points. Unfortunately, it will be with the 49ers, but Garcon still makes for a good value pick this year.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
Garcon is the only legitimate receiving threat that the 49ers have, and he'll be a number one receiver in a Kyle Shanahan offense. The last time he was in that situation, he led the NFL in targets. Those are all good things, but unfortunately the big thing holding back his value is the fact that he's on the 49ers and will have Brian Hoyer throwing the ball to him. Still, Garcon's in the right situation to produce and I think could be a good sleeper this year.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.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The last time Garcon was playing for Kyle Shannahan, he led the league in receptions. Granted, Hoyer is not the greatest QB, but they will be playing from behind plenty and Garcon is clearly their top receiving option this season so he is a safe add.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.

Reunited with Kyle Shanahan and with no other options is the passing game, Garcon will see 125-plus targets. Auction Value $11Thielen 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 $9
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
One of my favorite targets in season-long leagues, Garcon is going to give you what you pay for. The last season he played under Kyle Shanahan was 2013 when he led the NFL in targets with 182 of them. The 49ers paid him a lot of money to come there, and he's legitimately their only starting-caliber receiver.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
The move to SF should mean 10 targets a game. I got him in the 12th round of an FFPC draft, let him sleep a while, but make sure he's on your radar by the 8th round. His ADP is climbing steadily, you might have to draft him in the 8th, which should still be fine, just don't expect him to exceed his draft value.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.
