Thielen's fabled streak of 100-yard games halted, but he extended his touchdown streak to six games before Minnesota's bye. Stefon Diggs will return to absorb some of Chicago's attention, which should help the slot wideout fix Week 9's 22-yard tally. Yet he is now limited in practice due to a calf injury suffered before the break, so keep an eye on Thielen's status before trusting him as a WR1.

Thielen had his 8-game 100-yard game streak snapped in Week 9. Coming off the bye week, he should still be an elite WR1.

There's no denying that Thielen's chemistry with Kirk Cousins has far exceeded expectations. Thielen leads the NFL in targets and has added an improved role in the red zone. The Vikings are in the thick of the NFC playoffs, so expect Kirk Cousins to continue to target Thielen early and often, making him a locked-in top-5 wideout.

Streak of 100-yard games (8) ended in Week 9 but, now has a 6-game TD streak - ROS schedule (12th-easiest at WR) conducive to plenty more 100-yarders and TDs
