Allen had 97 receptions for 1,196 yards and 6 touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR2 on an offense that no longer relies on him as much as they did in years past in the passing game.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.
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.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Over the past two seasons Allen has averaged 100 receptions for a little under 1,300 yards and 6 TD's. Once considered injury prone by the public, Allen has put together back to back healthy seasons, and has done so has a target hog in the offense. The return of Hunter Henry will impact his TD upside, but his targets should remain the same, since Tyrell left in FA. His early third round ADP is extremely fair, as my projections have him finishing the season as a low end WR 1. I don't see a path for him finishing in the top 3...but I also don't see a path to him busting aside from a freak injury. Allen is a guy I would draft, but not one I'd ever reach on.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Tyrell Williams taking off to the Raiders, will Allen play on the perimeter much more, or do those targets go to Travis Benjamin? My guess is that he stays in the same role, though he might have a few more targets come his way. Throughout his time in the league, Allen has been a bit more up-and-down than fantasy owners would like, but his potential increase in targets could even that out a bit. He's a fine low-end WR1 if you go RB-heavy in the first two rounds.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 16.
