Analysis: Thielen clearly wasn't 100 percent, though it may not have mattered even if he was with Case Keenum turning in one of his worst performances of the year. The 2017 breakout star won't be overlooked in next season's draft after racking up 91 catches and 1,276 yards prior to the playoffs.

Analysis: Thielen had a productive performance with six catches on nine targets, though he was kept out of the end zone for the fourth consecutive game. Thielen will surely play a big role in next weekend's NFC championship game in Philadelphia.

Analysis: Thielen finished with 91 receptions for 1,276 yards for the season, finishing seventh and ninth in team history. Randy Moss and Cris Carter are the only ones ahead on either list. It could have been even better, but Thielen slowed down late in the season with a combined 11 catches for 115 yards over the final three games.

Analysis: This effort did not help Thielen's owners who are playing in the fantasy playoffs. He now has five fantasy points in his last two games.
|Dec. 17, 2017 1:23 PM PT2:23 PM MT3:23 PM CT4:23 PM ET21:23 GMT5:23 2:23 PM MST4:23 PM EST3:23 PM CT1:23 UAE (+1)16:23 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had three receptions for 30 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 34-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Analysis: This was a fantasy disappointment after Thielen had totaled 37 catches for 632 yards and four touchdowns over his previous six games.
|Dec. 13, 2017 12:58 PM PT1:58 PM MT2:58 PM CT3:58 PM ET20:58 GMT4:58 1:58 PM MST3:58 PM EST2:58 PM CT0:58 UAE (+1)15:58 ETNaN:� - Thielen will start Sunday against the Bengals after he was previous limited during the week.
Analysis: Thielen has been outstanding for the Vikings, so this is good news. He has 37 catches for 632 yards and four scores in his last six games.
|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: The five targets were a season low for Thielen, who was targeted at least nine times in each of his past six games.
|Nov. 23, 2017 2:22 PM PT3:22 PM MT4:22 PM CT5:22 PM ET22:22 GMT6:22 3:22 PM MST5:22 PM EST4:22 PM CT2:22 UAE (+1)17:22 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had eight receptions for 89 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 30-23 win over the Detroit Lions.
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: Thielen is an absolute stud and has to be considered a possibility to be a first-team All-Pro at this point despite only totaling three touchdowns.
|Nov. 12, 2017 4:00 PM PT5:00 PM MT6:00 PM CT7:00 PM ET0:00 GMT8:00 5:00 PM MST7:00 PM EST6:00 PM CT4:00 UAE (+1)19:00 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had eight receptions for 166 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 38-30 win over the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: Finally Thielen is scoring touchdowns, albeit just two of them. He ranks third in the league with 793 receiving yards but his only two TDs have come in the last two games.
|Oct. 29, 2017 9:43 AM PT10:43 AM MT11:43 AM CT12:43 PM ET16:43 GMT0:43 9:43 AM MST11:43 AM EST10:43 AM CT20:43 UAE12:43 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had five receptions for 98 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 33-16 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Analysis: He still does not have a TD this season.
|Oct. 15, 2017 2:08 PM PT3:08 PM MT4:08 PM CT5:08 PM ET21:08 GMT5:08 2:08 PM MST4:08 PM EST4:08 PM CT1:08 UAE (+1)17:08 ETNaN:� - Adam Thielen had nine receptions for 97 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 23-10 win over the Green Bay Packers.

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.
Analysis: Thielen's seven catches of at least 20 yards leads the NFL, though he did have a key fumble in this contest.
|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.|

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.
