    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen signed a four-year deal worth $19.246 million with $6.746 million in the first year.

    Huddle Up: Thielen had a 69-967-5 year in 2016 as he emerged onto the fantasy radar. There will be some questions regarding whether he can build on it, but he's in the WR4 mix in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/15/2017 12:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent WR Adam Thielen agreed to a three-year deal with the Vikings Wednesday, March 15, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Thielen is coming off a career year in 2016 and should continue to have a significant role in the Vikings' passing game in 2017. Thielen can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 3/8/2017 3:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent WR Adam Thielen has received the second-round tender offer.

    Huddle Up: Thielen had a breakout season in 2016 and finished with 967 yards and five touchdowns. He should be a starter for the Vikings next season and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 3/4/2017 11:20am ET

    Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent WR Adam Thielen likely will receive the second-round tender offer this offseason, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Thielen likely will be back with the Vikings next season, but a team could show some interest in him if they are willing to give up a pick. He finished the 2016 season with 967 yards and five touchdowns and likely will have a big role in the passing game in 2017. Thielen can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 2/18/2017 6:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Adam Thielen said there is 'something special' about playing for one franchise, and he hopes to stay with Minnesota if he receives an offer in his 'ballpark.'

    Huddle Up: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford and emerged as Minnesota's steadiest receiver. If he is a Viking in 2017, he should be a quality WR3.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 8:49pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen led all receivers by catching 70.4 percent of his targets that traveled 15 yards or more down the field this season.

    Huddle Up: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford, just missing out on a 1,000-yard season. He enters 2017 as a viable WR3 option.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 5:14pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen only needs 40 yards in Week 17 to reach the 1,000-yard milestone on the season.

    Huddle Up: Thielen's previous career high in yards was 144 last year. He has turned into a solid weapon for the Vikings, especially with Adrian Peterson sitting most of the year. He's in the running for Minnesota's No. 2 wide receiver position next season behind Stefon Diggs.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen set career highs with 12 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Although Thielen has been an important part of the offense since early October, this is a stunning performance from a player who was shut out last week after taking a brutal hit early in the second half. The former undrafted free agent was getting open at will in this contest and he needs only 40 yards at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 17 to go over 1,000. He's obviously a must-start.

  • Posted: 12/20/2016 10:46am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (neck) told reporters he feels 'fine' and anticipates playing on Christmas Eve in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Thielen had been on quite a roll in terms of churning out solid PPR performances before getting blanked in Week 15 after leaving early in the third quarter after getting drilled by Indianapolis Colts cornerback Darius Butler. Assuming no setbacks between now and Saturday, Thielen makes for a reasonable low-end WR3/flex play against the Packers' vulnerable secondary.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 6:23pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen did not have any receptions and he was targeted just once in the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Thielen had a 100-yard game last week, and 187 receiving yards over the past two outings, so this was a giant disappointment for anyone using him as a WR3 or WR4, especially in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 12:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (neck) suffered a neck injury in Week 15 and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update in Thielen's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Thielen has been a solid member of the passing game over the last few weeks and would be at least a flex option if he plays in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 10:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted four receptions for 101 yards on five targets in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has emerged as a solid WR4 in most fantasy leagues, snagging three or more receptions in each of his past seven outings. He has 11 grabs for 187 yards over his past two outings.

  • Posted: 12/10/2016 7:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen said he feels he has shown he is not a joke and can make plays in the NFL, and WR Cordarrelle Patterson said Thielen likes when defenses overlook him.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has shown solid chemistry with Sam Bradford this season, and he has 20 catches over his last three games. Don't hesitate to use him as a WR3 in PPR formats against Jacksonville in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 9:24pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with seven catches for a game-high 86 yards in a 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has logged 15 catches on 20 targets over the last two games, and the chemistry he has with Sam Bradford is undeniable. He is a viable WR3 option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:01pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted seven receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Thielen was a tremendous fill-in for the injured Stefon Diggs, who is nursing a groin injury. While Diggs is expected to return after the team's bye, Thielen could have earned himself a bigger role in the offense even when Diggs can return in Week 7.

  • Posted: 8/19/2016 2:28pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught four passes for 61 yards in the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 18. He has been impressing the coaches throughout training camp.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has been receiving work with the first-team offense during practice and has recorded 81 yards in two preseason games. He may have a chance to earn a bigger role on offense with his preseason performance, so owners should monitor the situation. Thielen probably should not be drafted in most leagues, but he could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early in the season.

  • Posted: 8/11/2016 2:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen is receiving most of the first-team snaps when the team is lined up in three-receiver sets alongside WRs Charles Johnson and Stefon Diggs.

    Huddle Up: While Thielen and Johnson -- and even Diggs with an ADP of 43 -- aren't getting much fantasy love, the Vikings' wideout going highest in drafts is also the one who's conspicuously absent from the above group. First-round pick Laquon Treadwell owns an ADP of 38 but is rumored to be running behind, and the coaches are no doubt trying to send a message. See if it gets heard in the preseason games. In the meantime, proceed with caution when it comes to the Minny wideouts.
