The Vikings are “excited” to see how 2nd-year WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette develops, per beat writer Chad Graff. Note that Minnesota didn't draft a WR until Round 6 last month (MSU's Jalen Nailor). According to Graff, Smith-Marsette is “part of the reason” new GM Kwesi Adofo-Mensah opted against adding an impact rookie WR. As things stand now, ISM will battle Bisi Johnson for the Vikings’ WR4 job.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. He’s reportedly expected back next week. Olabisi Johnson will again serve as Minnesota’s #2 WR today but isn’t much of a fantasy option. TE Kyle Rudolph is the best bet for targets behind WR Stefon Diggs.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks after a limited week of practice. We'll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Fantasy owners hoping to use Thielen should roster WR Olabisi Johnson as a backup plan.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We're tentatively expecting him back after Minnesota's Week 12 bye. Olabisi Johnson will continue to serve as the Vikings' #2 WR but is a weak fantasy play. Thielen's absence keeps TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith on the spot-start radar. They've averaged 4.8 and 5.3 targets, respectively, over the past 4 weeks.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. Olabisi Johnson will slide in as Minnesota's #2 WR, but the real fantasy winners here are TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith. They've seen 14 and 15 targets, respectively, over the past 3 weeks. Both guys are in play as Week 10 spot starters.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. He's not going to play against the Cowboys on Sunday night, leaving extra targets for WRs Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson and TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the strained hamstring for Vikings WR Adam Thielen is "no worse" after he played briefly in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Pelissero tweeted that Thielen "could feel it pulling and need (sic) to calm it down." Pelissero also pointed out that Minnesota "errs on the conservative side" and gets a bye on the other side of the Week 11 home date with Denver. If you have Thielen, make sure you secure a contingency plan through Week 11. It seems like he should be OK on the other side of the Week 12 bye, at least. We'll certainly keep an eye on the situation. Missing Thielen this weekend would help the target outlooks for not only WR Olabisi Johnson, but also Minnesota's TEs.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Redskins. He was always a long shot to play 4 days after injuring that hamstring, but it sounds like he has a good shot to return for Week 9. Olabisi Johnson will step in as Minnesota's #2 WR vs. Washington but is no more than a deep-league and DFS flier in what figures to be a run-heavy game from the Vikings. Thielen's absence also boosts TE Kyle Rudolph's target projection.
