  • Adam Thielen Looking Like His Old Self

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen looks more like his previous self in training camp this summer, and his play is reminiscent of his most productive stretch from 2016 to 2018. Over that time period, Thielen made his only two Pro Bowls and totaled 273 receptions on 387 targets for 3,616 yards and 18 touchdowns in 48 games. In the last three seasons, he's been limited by injuries and has put up 171 catches on 251 targets for 2,069 yards and 30 touchdowns. While his production has fallen off, his touchdown production hasn't, and the Vikings are expected to continue using him as a red-zone weapon in 2022. Coming off ankle surgery that ended his 2021 season early, the 31-year-old should be a WR3 with touchdown upside in this pass-happy offense.

  • Vikings "Embrace" Adam Thielen In The Red Zone

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell has embraced the ways wide receiver Adam Thielen can be used in his offensive scheme, particularly in the red zone. "The Vikings are doing everything they can to preserve the Cousins-Thielen scoring connection," per Kevin Seifert of ESPN. The 31-year-old has a knack for finding the end zone and caught 24 touchdowns over the last two seasons. "He's always been strong with the football," Cousins said. "He has great natural hands, great body control, and he plays big. He plays big and strong, and he runs big and strong. That shows up in the red zone and in tight windows and in tight coverage." Thielen will be quarterback Kirk Cousins' top option in the red zone and is a touchdown-dependent WR3 in upcoming fantasy drafts.

  • Adam Thielen Feels "Rejuvenated"

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle), who had season-ending ankle surgery last year, feels "rejuvenated" coming off his injury while playing under new head coach Kevin O'Connell. Thielen played in only 13 games in 2021, catching 67 of his 95 targets for 726 yards and 10 touchdowns, his second straight year with double-digit scores. The veteran pass-catcher has been on the field for organized team activities and said his ankle "is great." The 31-year-old will once again start alongside All-Pro wideout Justin Jefferson in an offense that could be much more dynamic under O'Connell. While Thielen hasn't surpassed 1,000 yards receiving since 2018, he should be a solid source of receptions in PPR leagues and could continue to dominate in the red zone.
