Adam Thielen (hamstring) ruled out Week 10

Adam Thielen (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen aggregated his hamstring in the first quarter of Sunday’s 26-24 loss to the Chiefs, exiting after seven snaps. He didn’t practice at all this week and his status for Week 11 against the Broncos is up in the air. The Vikings have a bye Week 12, it’s possible that Thielen sits Week 11 as a precaution. Laquon Treadwell and Olabisi Johnson will see an additional boost with Thielen sidelined.

Adam Thielen absent from practice again Friday

Adam Thielen missed Friday's practice as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen is very doubtful for the weekend, and he could be officially ruled out as soon as today, though the team doesn't play until Sunday night this week against Dallas. If Thielen is out, Stefon Diggs would see a boost in expected value, though he failed to deliver last week in a better matchup against the Chiefs.

Adam Thielen misses practice again Thursday

Adam Thielen was once again absent from practice on Thursday as he deals with his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen is expected to miss Week 10's matchup against the Cowboys. The team has said that the injury isn't expected to be "long-term," but it's still not clear when he'll be back. It wouldn't be surprising if he also missed the team's Week 11 matchup against the Broncos ahead of their Week 12 bye. As a result, those that are still pushing for the fantasy playoffs should consider trading Thielen as he could realistically not return to the field until Week 13, missing the next three weeks.

Adam Thielen's injury not considered long-term

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that Adam Thielen's hamstring injury isn't believed to be long-term.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmer added that Thielen wasn't rushed back from his initial injury, causing an aggravation. There's a decent chance Thielen remains out through the team's Week 12 bye, but his Week 11 status hasn't been confirmed to this point. Whatever the case, fantasy owners will be without Thielen for another week. In theory, Stefon Diggs should be in line for a big game, but he failed to deliver in a prime matchup last week once Thielen exited with his injury.

Adam Thielen (hamstring) expected to miss Week 10

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Adam Thielen (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 10 versus Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is Thielen's hamstring is apparently "no worse" after exiting Minnesota's Week 9 game against Kansas City. However, the Vikings will surely play it safe this time around. There's a small chance we don't see him until after the team's bye week even, which comes in Week 12.
