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' skillset 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.

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.
