Based on Expected TD Rate, Thielen should have had 5.5 receiving touchdowns last season on his 925 receiving yards. He finished with 14! He was incredibly efficient in the red zone, catching eight touchdowns on only 12 targets. This high level of efficiency makes Thielen a very risky investment for fantasy this upcoming season. With Jefferson stepping up and assuming the WR1 role in this offense, Thielen now has to keep up this unprecedented touchdown rate in order to return value on where he's being drafted. Cousins and Thielen certainly have the chemistry to make that happen, but it's not exactly a sure thing. If you can get Thielen as a WR3 on your roster, where you can live with the potential range of outcomes, I'm okay with that team-building strategy. However, having to rely on him as anything more than that is a recipe for disaster.

Adam Thielen totals 57 yards in Week 17 win

Adam Thielen brought in four of five targets for 57 yards in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He ends the season with 25 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns. Thielen will be on the WR2/3 map in 2021, as the emergence of Justin Jefferson has certainly decreased the former's fantasy value.
