2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
About to be on the north side of 30, Thielen seemed to be supplanted as the team's No.1 option last year by a fella named Justin Jefferson. Thielen, who was coming off an injury marred 2019, was just 24th among receivers in receptions and yardage. So what carried him to a top-10 finish at the position? A career high 14 touchdowns, something that is nearly impossible to duplicate or count on for 2021. Touchdown scoring is always a fickle stat in fantasy, so for receivers, it comes down to targets and receptions, and expect those numbers to rebound some for Thielen. I expect defenses to shift their gaze to Jefferson a bit more this year, and that should open up Thielen for more looks than he's seen in a few years. Sure, he's lost a bit of that downfield explosion, but his elite body control, hands, and rapport with Cousins in the redzone is more than enough to make him a WR1 standard league candidate in an offense with diverse threats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dalvin Cook limited on Wednesday
Vikings have a bye in Week 7
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 13, 3:40 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook listed as a limited participant in today's practice. DNPs: Pierce (elbow), Barr (knee), Adam Thielen (foot), Justin Jefferson (ankle), Griffen (rest), Alexander Mattison (shoulder), Ellefson (knee) (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A lot of rest today for key offensive players in Minnesota. Cook missed practice most of last week before being declared Inactive on gameday in Week 5. With Minnesota having a bye in Week 7, we'll get a better idea of Cook's availability later in the week.
