Adam Thielen held to 40 yards in Week 5 win over Lions

Adam Thielen hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 40 yards in Minnesota's Sunday afternoon victory over Detroit.

Fantasy Impact:

Thielen has now recorded just 50 yards or less in each contest since Week 2 this season. He did, however, register his two catches within the final 33 seconds of the game to help the Vikings edge the Lions on a 54-yard field goal. Justin Jefferson is the clear WR1 in this offense, but Thielen is still simply too good for this underwhelming production. He makes for an attractive buy-low trade candidate, who will attempt to get back on track versus a strong Panthers' secondary.
