Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen will not play on Monday Night Football vs. the Seattle Seahawks, per NFL Network. Thielen has been dealing with a hamstring injury and is expected to be inactive for a crucial NFC matchup. He was considered questionable and many expected the WR to be able to return this week. Thielen hasn’t played since being injured in Week 9.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Minnesota Vikings wide receivers

With Thielen not expected to be back, we can expect a whole lot of targets to go Stefon Diggs’ way on Monday night. Considering the Seahawks’ secondary is vulnerable, he’ll be in a great spot in season-long and DFS. Olabisi Johnson should continue to work as the No. 2 wideout and TE Kyle Rudolph should also be more involved in the passing game. Obviously with Thielen out, this is a bit easier on the Seahawks D/ST at home, but really their main focus should be on RB Dalvin Cook.
