Adam Thielen listed as doubtful on final injury report for Week 14

The Minnesota Vikings released their final injury report for Week 14, and wide receiver Adam Thielen is listed as doubtful due to his hamstring injury. A doubtful player technically has a 25 percent or less chance of playing, but almost never plays.

Thielen has missed four of the Vikings past five games with the injury. He looked like he had a shot of playing on Monday in Week 13, but was downgraded on Sunday. He got in three limited practices last week, but has been a DNP all this week.

Fantasy football analysis: Vikings wide receivers

Thielen is not going to play this weekend, and three straight DNPs does not bode well for his chances of suiting up in Week 15. Olabisi Johnson gets the snaps benefit, but Stefon Diggs is the best option among the wide receivers for fantasy value. Kyle Rudolph retains value as well as long as Thielen is sidelined. Laquon Treadwell scored a touchdown on Monday, but had just the one 58-yard catch on two targets.
