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.
