As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
A Week 7 hamstring injury derailed Thielen’s 2019, allowing him just one more game of full playing time the rest of the way. Before that, though, he continued to work as the lead receiver. The Vikings traded away top challenger Stefon Diggs, importing rookie Justin Jefferson as the replacement. Otherwise, the offense sports an unimpressive receiver depth chart and a pair of tight ends who each averaged less than 10 yards per catch last season.

Bye Week: 7
Thielen might be in for his largest target share yet, and he doesn’t turn 30 until late August. He’ll be Kirk Cousins’ best friend this year.
Season Projections for 2020
