Player Notes
Jan 11 10:10pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught five of seven targets for 50 yards in a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday. Thielen didn't appear to be slowed down by his recent injury but was unable to get much going as the 49ers Defense suffocated the Vikings offense all game long. Thielen had a very disappointing season as he missed a lot of time with a hamstring injury and finished with just 30 catches for 418 yards and six touchdowns on the year. He's best viewed as a WR2 heading into next year's fantasy drafts as his potential ceiling is capped with Stefon Diggs stealing looks and Dalvin Cook commanding a lot of touches out of the backfield.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 21-for-29 for 172 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round playoff game. RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 18 yards on nine carries and caught six passes for eight yards during the game. WR Stefon Diggs caught two passes for 57 yards and one touchdown on five targets. WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 50 yards on seven targets. TE Irv Smith caught three passes for 39 yards on three targets, while TE Kyle Rudolph caught two passes for four yards on three targets.

Jan 11 3:30pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for Saturday's Divisional round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Thielen suffered a cut to his ankle on Wednesday that required stitches, but he will suit up for the do-or-die game, as expected. Stefon Diggs (illness) is also active. Both receivers face a daunting matchup in the 49ers Defense as they rank second in pass DVOA and are returning three starters from injury. Thielen may be the better play of the two as he has always produced better than Diggs against zone coverage, but both profile as risky options in this difficult matchup on the road.

From RotoBaller

Jan 11 3:23pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for the Divisional Round game Saturday, Jan. 11, against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen caught seven of nine targets for 129 yards in the Wild Card Round against the New Orleans Saints and will be counted on for a big role once again against the Niners. He should be started in all formats.

From TheHuddle

Jan 11 2:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) tested his lacerated ankle Saturday, Jan. 11, in a pre-game workout. It's the first time Thielen has run since his ankle was gashed Wednesday in practice and required stitches.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen is expected to play, and we'll know soon as the Vikings' inactives list is due out shortly.

From TheHuddle

Jan 10 3:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to wear protective padding over his injured ankle during the Divisional Round playoff game, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen likely will be able to play in the game, but fantasy players can check the inactive list to make sure. He is one of the main targets in the passing game for the Vikings and should be a starting option in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Jan 10 2:40pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to wear protective padding around his stitched-up ankle in the Divisional game against the 49ers on Saturday, according to a source. Thielen is questionable to play, but all signs point to him being active in this big game. He had seven catches for 100-plus yards in the wild-card round, but Thielen has been injured for most of the season and will be facing off against a very strong Niners pass defense. There's also the chance that Thielen's stitches open up during the game on Saturday, which could cause him to miss some game action. He's shaping up as an extremely risky DFS option relative to his price.

From RotoBaller

Jan 10 11:40am ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) isn't expected to do much until the Divisional game against the 49ers on Saturday, but he should be able to play despite needing stitches for a cut he suffered in practice earlier this week. There's optimism around Thielen, but the team doesn't know how his stitches will hold up during the game. Already going up against a tough 49ers Defense, Thielen becomes an obvious bust candidate in DFS at his current $6,200 DraftKings price this weekend despite having second catches and over 100 yards in last week's upset over the Saints.

From RotoBaller

Jan 10 9:53am ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to play in the Divisional game Saturday, Jan. 11. He will remain off of his feet until game time.

Fantasy Spin: He'll draw a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, and he'll probably have to manage irritation or pain with the stitches in his ankle. Thielen is still one of the better options in DFS and playoff pools.

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 9:30pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is projecting to be a high-risk start for Saturday's Divisional round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Thielen suffered a cut to his ankle in Wednesday's practice and did not practice on Thursday, but he is still expected to suit up for the pivotal playoff contest. Thielen is coming off his first big game since his Week 7 injury, but the 49ers Defense is a difficult matchup as they allow the least passing yards per game and rank second in pass DVOA. He has historically had more success than Stefon Diggs against zone coverage, which the 49ers often use, but the red flags are clear to see here. Thielen is not a player to consider for cash game DFS lineups, but he could be used as a high-risk, high-ceiling receiver in tournaments.

From RotoBaller

Jan 9 6:03pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen is officially listed as questionable for the game Saturday, Jan. 11, against the San Francisco 49ers, but he has been adamant he'll play. He caught seven of nine targets for 129 yards in the Wild Card Round against the New Orleans Saints and will remain a top option even in a tougher matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 5:03pm ET

Minnesota Vikings CB Mackensie Alexander (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for the team's NFC Divisional Round game against the San Francisco 49ers. S Jayron Kearse (toe, knee) also did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. WR Adam Thielen (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Jan. 9, and is listed as questionable. DT Linval Joseph (knee), WR Stefon Diggs (illness), CB Xavier Rhodes (ankle, shoulder), DE Stephen Weatherly (foot), OG Josh Kline (elbow), DT Shamar Stephen (knee), TE Tyler Conklin (knee) and RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday and have been removed from the injury report. DE Ifeadi Odenigbo (hamstring) was not given a practice designation for a second straight day but also no longer appears on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 3:20pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round against the 49ers on Saturday. Thielen was injured in practice on Wednesday and required stitches for his ankle. He's still expected to play against San Francisco, but the Vikings are playing it cautious with him after he missed some time during the regular season with a hamstring ailment. Thielen limped to the finish line in the regular season with three catches for 27 yards in the final three games, but he had seven receptions for 129 yards in the wild-card win over the Saints. His new injury, however, will make him a risky DFS selection against a stout 49ers secondary on Saturday. Olabisi Johnson would be the No. 2 wideout if Thielen is a surprise inactive.

From RotoBaller

Jan 9 2:13pm ET

Minnesota Vikings Adam Thielen is listed as questionable for the team's divisional-round playoff game at San Francisco on Saturday, Jan. 11. 'I just got a little tangled up in practice but I'm going to do whatever it takes -- it's playoffs,' Thielen said on NFL Network Thursday. 'I'll do whatever it takes to be out there on Saturday with my teammates and try to help this team win.'

Fantasy Spin: We'll need to monitor Thielen's status all the way up through the release of the pre-game inactives list Saturday, but it sounds like Thielen will play as he tries to follow up on his impressive wild-card round showing (7 catches for 129 yards on 9 targets).

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 12:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) was present at the start of practice Thursday, Jan. 9, but was not participating.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen received stitches to close a cut on his ankle suffered in practice Wednesday, and he should be able to play in Saturday's divisional round, even if he misses some practice time. Stay tuned as we'll know more as the week goes on.

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 11:00am ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) needed stitches for a bad cut on his ankle suffered in practice on Wednesday, according to sources. The initial prognosis is encouraging for him playing in the Divisional Round against the 49ers on Saturday, but the team is gathering information and will proceed with caution. Don't be surprised if Thielen is limited or misses practice on Thursday, but he should still suit up this weekend. He didn't do much of anything in three games to close out the regular season after returning from his hamstring ailment, but Thielen looked healthy last week when he caught seven passes for 129 yards. Going up against a tough San Fran defense this weekend will present plenty of challenges, though.

From RotoBaller

Jan 9 10:23am ET

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) required stitches for a bad cut on his ankle suffered in practice Wednesday, Jan. 8. His initial prognosis was good for playing against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Jan. 11, but the team continues to gather information and proceed with caution.

Fantasy Spin: While stitches on an ankle isn't a walk in the park for a wide receiver, it is a better outlook than a potential aggravation of his previous ankle sprain. Thielen should suit up, but it might be a pain management situation once the game kicks off. He's a great WR2 in playoff pools and DFS.

From TheHuddle

Jan 8 4:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) was added to the injury report for the Divisional Round against the 49ers and was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. After coming back from a hamstring injury that he aggravated on Oct. 20, Thielen finished the season by catching three passes for 27 yards in the final three games of the regular season. He bounced back by securing seven catches for 129 yards in the wild-card win last weekend, but now he's hobbled again. We'd expect him to suit up against San Francisco this Saturday, but his DFS price tag now comes with some more risk against a solid defense.

From RotoBaller

Jan 8 3:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Spin: Thielen was added to the injury report Wednesday, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation. Thielen should be a starting option in all leagues if he is able to play.

From TheHuddle

Jan 5 9:00pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught seven of nine targets for 129 yards in a 26-20 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints. He also rushed once for three yards and lost a fumble after a short catch on the first drive of the game. Thielen dove to haul in a beautifully thrown 43-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to set up the game-winning score in overtime. He was heavily involved in the offense for the first time since Week 6 and averaged an impressive 18.4 yards per catch in the game. Thielen will face a stiff test against the 49ers Defense next week on the road.
