Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) didn't participate in the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday. He seemed set to return last week before suffering his 2nd setback with this injury.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 14. Thielen's absence means TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith should continue to play big roles in Minnesota's passing game.

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) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. With a Week 12 bye coming, it'd make sense for Minnesota to hold Thielen out of this weekend's game against the Broncos. His absence would keep TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith on the spot-start radar.

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.

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.
