Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for today's Divisional Round game against the 49ers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on Friday that the team wasn't sure how the stitches in Thielen's ankle will hold up. He obviously comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the 49ers. He suffered a cut on his ankle that required stitches on Wednesday and then didn't practice on Thursday. There's been optimism about his availability for this playoff game, but Thielen will obviously come with elevated risk in fantasy lineups if active. We'll get his official status around 3 pm ET on Saturday.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) practiced all week and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Thielen has had a couple of setbacks with this hamstring, but Minnesota seemed to be very cautious bringing him back this time. We're expecting Thielen to play his usual role this weekend.

Injury Predictor

Thielen not only has yet to miss an NFL game, he didn't appear on a regular-season injury report either of the past 2 seasons. After the 2016 breakthrough, Thielen saw his targets spike by more than 50% for the 2nd straight year. He heads into 2018 as 1 of Minnesota's established top-2 wideouts with a stabilized QB situation (Kirk Cousins). After a slow climb, Thielen looks like 1 of fantasy football's safer WR picks.
