Stat No. 2
"In his career, Adam Thielen has 18 games with 100 or more receiving yards. In the Vikings careers of Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice, and Kyle Rudolph, these three pass-catchers have 18 games with 100 or more receiving yards–combined."
A few aspects of this fact make it startling. First, Harvin and Rice played with Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, if only for two seasons.
Next, between Harvin, Rice, and Rudolph–the three men have played 230 games with Minnesota. Thielen has played in 90 contests and he did not have his first 100-yard receiving game until his 37th appearance. He has since accrued 17 more.
In fact, since 2016, Thielen ranks fourth in the NFL in 100-yard receiving games. In this metric, he is only topped by Julio Jones, DeAndre Hopkins, and Michael Thomas. He has notched more 100-yard receiving games than Mike Evans, Davante Adams, T.Y. Hilton, Amari Cooper, Stefon Diggs, Odell Beckham Jr., and Jarvis Landry in the last four years.
Eye-popping, you see.
