Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen would appear to be back in Week 15 and good to go for fantasy football players. The team released their final injury report and Thielen has been removed from the report. He was limited in practice this week due to his hamstring injury, but progressed enough to not need the questionable designation.

Thielen injured his hamstring in Week 7, and aggravated the injury when he tried to come back in Week 8. He has not played out of the first quarter since Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy football analysis: Vikings WR Adam Thielen

Hamstring injuries are always concerning, but Thielen being removed from the injury report entirely is a big plus. The limited work does not mean he is not 100 percent as the team could have just wanted to be cautious.

At this point, fantasy football players should plan on starting Thielen as though he is good to go. The Chargers are a tough matchup, giving up the third fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, but Diggs and Thielen can be a deadly duo when both on the field. Look for a solid performance from both receivers.
