Adam Thielen, WR
With Stefon Diggs out last week with a groin injury, some felt that Thielen may have a difficult time getting open against the Green Bay Packers. However, the Minnesota receiver made up for Diggs’ absence last Sunday as he led all Vikings pass catchers with nine catches for 97 yards.
Well, Minnesota announced on Friday that Diggs’ injury is going to cause him to miss this week’s game also. So Thielen will likely be the top target of Vikings’ quarterback Case Keenum for the second straight game.
Thielen’s task will be tougher this week when he faces a Ravens’ pass defense that is only allowing 105.7 yards per game to opposing receivers this year. Overcoming challenges is something the Minnesota receiver has become known for over the years though, so don’t think about counting him out against Baltimore.
