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.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) won't play against the Lions today. Thielen is working to get scar tissue out of that injured hamstring, per Rapoport, but Minnesota is "optimistic" that he'll be back next week. WR Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph are the 2 best fantasy bets in the Vikings passing game today.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He won’t play in that one and should be considered iffy for Week 15 after missing practice all week. Thielen’s absence keeps TE Kyle Rudolph in play as a fantasy starter.

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. Fantasy owners should plan on being without Thielen again for Week 14 at this point. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow.

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.

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.
