2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Thielen was such a darkhorse that I didn't even feature him in this column last year. Prior to a breakout 2016, Thielen had combined for just 20 catches over his first two years. But injuries to Diggs and Treadwell forced Thielen into a primary pass catching role, and he came up huge with a 69-967-5 line over the course of the season. Stepping up when his team needed him the most earned him a nice new contract and a chance to again be a major contributor in the passing game. The problem is that Thielen offers much more value to the Vikings than he does in fantasy. He's unlikely to reach or surpass his 2016 numbers, as the entire offense should function more efficiently, meaning Thielen won't be relied upon as much. He had a few monster games last season, and he won't be sneaking up on defenses anymore. If everyone stays healthy, Thielen falls back into WR4/5 territory and becomes much more of a complementary player.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Adam Thielen expected to play
Limited in practice with back injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jan 21, 7:15 am

Minnesota Vikings
There didn’t seem to be much of a doubt that Vikings receiver Adam Thielen would play on Sunday despite a lower back injury. If there were any doubt, there should be none. According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Thielen will play on Sunday evening, when the Vikings face the Eagles in Philadelphia. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Thielen missed practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday and Friday but is expected to play against the Eagles in the NFC Championship game. The Vikings could choose to feature Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph is Thielen is less than 100 percent.
