Adam Thielen signs three-year deal with Panthers

The Carolina Panthers are signing veteran WR Adam Thielen to a three-year contract, according to Pat McAfee.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen, a Minnesota native, was released by the Vikings, setting him up to join the second team of his career. After nine years, Thielen will join a Carolina team that’s been adding new names to the offense to prepare whoever they likely draft at No. 1. Thielen has 534 catches and 55 touchdowns in his career and can be a veteran figure for the young Panthers.

Adam Thielen meeting with Panthers Wednesday

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Carolina Panthers will be hosting WR Adam Thielen for a visit on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen is currently 32 years old, but the veteran WR has caught 30 touchdown passes over the last three seasons. Thielen has 6,682 yards in his career and could provide veteran leadership to a young WR group in Carolina as well as a reliable target to, presumably, a young QB added in the NFL Draft.

Adam Thielen released by Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have officially released WR Adam Thielen after nine seasons.

Fantasy Impact

The 32-year-old wideout has played his entire career in Minnesota, accumulating 534 catches for 6,682 yards and 55 TD. Thielen will hit the free-agent market when the window opens and says he wants to be a part of a contender. By releasing him, the Vikings save $19.97 million in cap hit.

Adam Thielen could be released by Minnesota

Adam Thielen could be released by the Vikings in the coming days, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen and the Vikings are set to talk over the coming days but there is a chance that the team decides to release him. Thielen would then become a free agent and there should be numerous suitors for the veteran wide receivers. The 32-year-old receiver registered 716 receiving yards and six touchdowns on 70 receptions in 2022.

Adam Thielen held to one catch Sunday

Adam Thielen caught just one pass for 16 yards in Sunday afternoon's 41-17 blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen was almost fully shut down on Sunday, catching just one pass for 16 yards throughout the course of the day. He wasn't able to get open consistently, and his performance is representative of how the game went for the Vikings as a whole. Week 17 marks the second-straight week that he has been held to one catch, and his volatility makes him unplayable in most fantasy formats.
