Adam Thielen struggles against the Eagles

Adam Thielen caught three of nine passes for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

It came to light shortly before the game that Thielen had fractures in his back that he was playing through. He did get nine targets in the game, but with just three catches, it's likely that he was limited by the injury. It was a breakout season for the receiver, who totaled 1,276 yards receiving. He should be a solid pick in 2018 drafts and again give excellent fantasy production, especially in PPR leagues.

Adam Thielen (back) questionable for NFC Championship

Adam Thielen (back) is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Eagles. He has been limited all week after tweaking his lower back at some point. He did play a full game in the Divisional Round last week and is expected to play this week.

Fantasy Impact

Soft-tissue injuries in the lower back can be a little tricky and employing Thielen in DFS this week carries a little risk but he should see his normal amount of targets and grind through his lower back issue.

Adam Thielen (back) misses practice Wednesday

Adam Thielen (back) missed Wednesday's practice ahead of Sunday's tilt with the Eagles. Thielen made it through the Divisional Round fine, playing 75-of-79 snaps so the injury is somewhat of a mystery.

Fantasy Impact

More than likely, the team is giving Thielen a day for maintenance and you expect him to be 100% for Sunday's showdown.

Adam Thielen with six catches in win over Saints

Adam Thielen caught six of nine targets for 74 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen's numbers don't jump out at you, but he made several outstanding grabs to keep Vikings drives moving. Thielen's fantasy numbers haven't been eye-popping lately, and they probably won't be next weekend, as Patrick Robinson has been one of the best slot corners in the game this year.

Adam Thielen with six catches against the Bears

Adam Thielen caught six of seven targets for 61 yards on Sunday against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

It was a relatively quiet end of the regular season for Thielen, but he had a marvelous season, with 91 receptions for 1,276 yards. The Vikings will likely need to open up the passing attack more in the playoffs, so look for Thielen to make a fine DFS play.
