Odds don’t seem good that we’ll see Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen in action this weekend. Thielen is dealing with a hamstring injury and did not take part in practice on Wednesday. He continues to work with the training staff while the team prepares for Week 11 vs. the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy football analysis: Vikings WR Adam Thielen
Thielen pushed to get back from a hamstring injury after only one missed game and proceeded to aggravate the injury. He missed last week, and his return remains very much TBD. If he doesn’t get in even a limited practice this week, it’s hard to see him being ready for next week either. Plenty can change, but given the injury and subsequent aggravation, don’t hold your breath.
Stefon Diggs remains the Vikings No. 1 receiver, with Olabisi Johnson continuing to get snaps in Thielen’s absence. Tight end Kyle Rudolph has started to emerge of late, and might continue benefiting in Thielen’s absence.
