Dec. 10, 2017 3:51 PM PT4:51 PM MT5:51 PM CT6:51 PM ET23:51 GMT7:51 4:51 PM MST6:51 PM EST5:51 PM CT3:51 UAE (+1)18:51 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had six receptions for 105 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 31-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Analysis: Thielen just continues to impress. He went over 100 yards for the third time in five games even if he caught just six of a season high-tying 13 targets. Most of his yardage came on a 52-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He has 32 catches on 50 targets for 534 yards with three touchdowns in his past five games.
Dec. 3, 2017 1:18 PM PT2:18 PM MT3:18 PM CT4:18 PM ET21:18 GMT5:18 2:18 PM MST4:18 PM EST3:18 PM CT1:18 UAE (+1)16:18 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had four receptions for 51 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 14-9 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Analysis: Thielen was targeted 11 times, his fifth straight game with nine or more, and he came up a yard shy of a fourth week in a row with at least 90. Thielen didn't score for the first time in four games but clearly remains a WR1 going forward with Case Keenum constantly looking his way.
Nov. 19, 2017 6:22 PM PT7:22 PM MT8:22 PM CT9:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST8:22 PM CT6:22 UAE (+1)21:22 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had six receptions for 123 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: For the third straight week, Thielen had five catches on eight targets though his yardage has decreased with each contest. With 29 receptions on 40 targets, Thielen remains a very consistent part of Minnesota's offense.
Oct. 1, 2017 12:43 PM PT1:43 PM MT2:43 PM CT3:43 PM ET19:43 GMT3:43 12:43 PM MST2:43 PM EST2:43 PM CT23:43 UAE15:43 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had five receptions for 59 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions. He also fumbled once.

Sep. 24, 2017 5:46 PM PT6:46 PM MT7:46 PM CT8:46 PM ET0:46 GMT8:46 5:46 PM MST7:46 PM EST7:46 PM CT4:46 UAE (+1)20:46 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had five receptions for 98 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 34-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Analysis: Thielen remains one of the best receivers almost nobody has ever heard of. After a dip in production last week in Pittsburgh, Thielen took advantage of Tampa's deplete defense and fell just two yards shy of his second 100-yard game of the season. He's been targeted 24 times so he's getting plenty of opportunities and continues to be a reliable fantasy producer.
Sep. 17, 2017 1:21 PM PT2:21 PM MT3:21 PM CT4:21 PM ET20:21 GMT4:21 1:21 PM MST3:21 PM EST3:21 PM CT0:21 UAE (+1)16:21 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had five receptions for 44 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 26-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also fumbled once.
Sep. 11, 2017 7:49 PM PT8:49 PM MT9:49 PM CT10:49 PM ET2:49 GMT10:49 7:49 PM MST9:49 PM EST9:49 PM CT6:49 UAE (+1)22:49 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had nine receptions for 157 yards Monday in the Minnesota Vikings' 29-19 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Analysis: Thielen has now surpassed 100 receiving yards in three of his last five games dating back to last season, though he also threw in a couple of duds over that period. Though the Minnesota native may be best suited as a WR3 in fantasy circles, grab him if he's somehow still on the waiver wire.
Mar. 15, 2017 1:07 PM PT2:07 PM MT3:07 PM CT4:07 PM ET20:07 GMT4:07 1:07 PM MST3:07 PM EST2:07 PM CT0:07 UAE (+1)16:07 ETNaN:� - The Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms with Thielen on Wednesday. Minnesota initially gave Thielen a second-round tender as a restricted free agent to increase its chances of holding onto him in the offseason. The Vikings elected to give him a three-year contract, multiple outlets reported.
Analysis: Thielen enjoyed a breakout season in 2016, reeling in 69 receptions for a team-leading 967 yards and five touchdowns. The 26-year-old Minnesota native made just $600,000 last season after collecting 20 catches in his previous two years with the club.
