Adam Thielen goes for 128 total yards and a score in Week 6 win

Adam Thielen hauled in 11-of-13 targets for 126 yards and one touchdown in Minnesota's Sunday afternoon overtime victory over Carolina. He added one carry for two yards.

Fantasy Impact:

Coming off two straight forgettable performances, Thielen broke out in a huge way to produce his first 100-yard effort of the season. He was an obvious buy-low trade candidate coming into this game, as he was bound to bounce back sooner rather than later given his high target share. While Justin Jefferson will still primarily serve as the top pass catcher in this Vikings offense, Thielen should remain a locked-in WR2 as the season progresses. He'll have a date with the Cowboys in Week 8 after his bye next week.
