Despite the fact that I'm a huge Stefon Diggs fan, one cannot escape the fact that Thielen saw 20 fewer targets, yet finished with 64 more yards and two more touchdowns. Once Diggs moved into the slot, Thielen started to do most of his damage, including his 202-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 16 against the Packers. He's still got a lot to prove, but 2016 was incredibly promising for the former undrafted free agent.

Adam Thielen re-signs with Vikings

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Minnesota Vikings and restricted free agent wide receiver Adam Thielen agreed to terms on a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen, a restricted free agent, signed a three-year deal with the Vikings Wednesday after the team placed a second-round tender on him at the start of free agency. The impending fourth-year receiver had an outstanding breakout season in 2016 in which he caught 69 targets for 967 yards and five touchdowns, including three games of at least 100 yards receiving. On a Vikings offense that finished last season ranked 18th in total net passing yards, Thielen is expected to open 2017 as Minnesota's No. 2 wideout behind Stefon Diggs.
