Adam Thielen, Vikes working on contract extension

Adam Thielen and the Vikings are working on a contract extension for the 28-year-old wideout.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen signed a four-year contract prior to 2017 that pays him peanuts to what he would command now on the open market. Minnesota doesn't appear to have a problem compensating star wideouts as just last off-season they handed Stefon Diggs a five-year, $72 million deal. Thielen is owed just over $10 million combined over the next two years.

Adam Thielen nets 38 yards in season finale

Adam Thielen had three receptions for 38 yards on four targets during the Vikings 24-10 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen started out the season on fire with eight straight 100-yard games but only tallied one game in triple-digits over the last eight contests. He finished the year with 113 receptions for 1,373 yards and nine TDs which were all career-highs. Thielen should be an early round draft pick again next season.

Adam Thielen posts 80 yards in Week 16

Adam Thielen made five receptions for 80 yards on six targets during the Vikings 27-9 win over the Lions in Week 16. He added one carry for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was a solid bounce-back effort from Thielen who was held to a season-low two receptions in Week 15. The 80 yards was his highest mark since Week 12 against the Packers. Thielen and the Vikings will close out the regular season at home against the Bears.

Adam Thielen limited to two receptions in Week 15

Adam Thielen was only targeted twice in Week 15 against the Dolphins catching both of them for 19 yards in the 41-17 win.

Fantasy Impact

With the Vikings jumping out to an early lead, Kirk Cousins only attempted 21 passes in the game resulting in Thielen posting his worst game of the season. Not a good time for a dud from Thielen with fantasy playoffs in full swing. If you somehow survived, the Vikings will face the Lions in Detroit next week where Thielen can hopefully redeem himself.

Adam Thielen posts 70 yards in Vikings loss

Adam Thielen finished the Vikings Monday night loss to the Seahawks with five receptions for 70 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen was shutout in the first half but made a few grabs in the second half to post a decent final line. He now has over 100 receptions on the season but has been held to 70 yards or fewer in four of his last five games. If you have Thielen and are still alive in the fantasy playoffs then keep plugging him in there.
