Most don't realize how much of an effect that Pat Shurmur had on Thielen's career, as he catapulted him into a household fantasy name. He was 26 years old when he broke out, something that doesn't happen all that often. The move to John DiFilippo will change some things, as will the move to Kirk Cousins, who has taken more chances down the field than game-manager Case Keenum did. That would play more into Stefon Diggs' skill-set rather than Thielen's. I do expect him to be a reliable fantasy producer, but he's not going to finish with 143 targets again. While doing research for Boom, Bust, and Everything in Between, Thielen finished as a WR3 or better just 56.3 percent of the time despite all those targets. Even if he scores more touchdowns, his lost targets are going to hurt.

Adam Thielen held without a catch on three targets

Adam Thielen was targeted three times during the Vikings 14-10 loss to the Jaguars but was unable to reel in any of targets.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings first-team offense struggled to move the ball against the Jaguars defense on Saturday. Thielen will need to continue to work on his chemistry with new QB Kirk Cousins to duplicate his success from last season and live up to his ADP as the 11th WR off the board in PPR leagues.
