Adam Thielen dealing with back and calf injuries

Adam Thielen was limited at Wednesday's practice by a back and calf injury.

Fantasy Impact

it's interesting that Thielen is on the injury report coming out of the team's bye. The team has given no reason to think Thielen will miss Week 11's contest against the Bears, but this is something to monitor. It's not an easy contest against Chicago, but Thielen continues to be a lock WR1 given his production this season.

Adam Thielen has 100-yard streak snapped in Week 9

Adam Thielen was limited to four receptions for 22 yards on seven targets to stop his 100-yard game streak at eight. He did, however, manage to find the end zone on a two-yard hookup with Kirk Cousins in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins only attempted 22 passes on the day as the Vikings defense owned the game limiting the need for offensive firepower. While Thielen's 100-yard game streak came to an end, he did manage to score for the sixth straight game. Thielen and the Vikings are on a bye next week.

Adam Thielen posts 103 yards and a score on Sunday night

Adam Thielen caught all seven of his targets for 103 yards in the Vikings Week 8 loss to the Saints. Thielen snagged a one-yard TD reception late in the fourth quarter. He also coughed up a fumble late in the first half that was later converted in a Saints touchdown which was a key turning point in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Ho-hum, another game, another 100 yards and a score for Thielen. He has now topped 100 yards in all eight games this season and has scored in five straight. Thielen will matchup with the Lions in Week 9 to see if he can keep the streak alive before the Vikings Week 10 bye.

Adam Thielen puts up 110 yards and a score in Week 7

Adam Thielen reeled in nine receptions for 110 yards on 10 targets and scored on a 34-yard strike from Kirk Cousins on the Vikings first possession of the game.

Fantasy Impact

This is getting ridiculous. Thielen has now topped 100 receiving yards in all seven games for the Vikings this season. He has also already exceeded his touchdown total from last season with his fifth score of the year coming in the win over the Jets to match his career-high. Don't look for Thielen's great run to stop anytime soon with matchups at home against the Saints and Lions over the next two weeks before a bye in Week 10. We may be witnessing a historic season, so enjoy the ride.

Adam Thielen continues to be unstoppable

Adam Thielen reeled in 11 receptions for 123 yards on a team-high 15 targets during the Vikings 27-17 win over the Cardinals. Thielen also scored on a nice 13-yard connection with Kirk Cousins in the third quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen does it again with over 100 receiving yards for the sixth straight game to begin the season. Through six games, Thielen has now accumulated 58 receptions for 715 yards and four touchdowns putting him on an unbelievable pace to break the single-season receptions record held by Marvin Harrison with 143 in 2002.
