Thielen's value took a hit with Case Keenum under center last week, but it did not torpedo quite as badly as Stefon Diggs', as he caught four of his five targets last week for 44 yards. The hope is that Sam Bradford can return this week from a bone bruise in his knee, which would allow Thielen to exploit his matchup with Robert McClain. Absent Bradford, it's difficult to trust any Vikings pass-catcher. But with optimism on Bradford's playing status, consider Thielen a solid WR3 with upside.

Adam Thielen puts up 44 yards against Pittsburgh

Adam Thielen reeled in five of six targets for 44 yards Sunday in the Vikings' 26-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Thielen also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

The Case Keenum led Minnesota offense crashed back to reality in Pittsburgh Sunday. The Vikings struggled to produce offensively with Sam Bradford (knee) out. Thielen was tied for the team lead with six targets and he will have value going forward in PPR formats following Bradford's return. He is best left on the bench with Keenum starting.
