Adam Thielen Continues to Dominate, Notches 100-Plus Yards in 4th Consecutive Game

Adam Thielen joined rare company on Thursday night when he recorded his fourth straight 100-plus yard receiving game after carving up the Rams’ scary defense to the tune of 135 yards and a score on 8 receptions. Thielen put his name in the same breath with two of the better receivers ever in both Isaac Bruce (2004) and Randy Moss (2007), as the only three wideouts to eclipse 100 yards receiving in his first four games of the season. The NFL leader in targets (a whopping 56), has formed a lethal one-two punch with Stefon Diggs, which has leap frogged Thielen up to No. 18 overall on our Rest of Season Big Board. Kirk Cousins does an excellent job of spreading the ball out to the two playmakers, and both are fantasy studs on a weekly basis.

After Diggs’ monster preseason and early rapport with Cousins, we weren’t as high on Thielen as most. In fact, we even stated that Diggs would outscore the white receiver. Although the team is surprisingly only 2-2, all we care about is fantasy points at the RSJ, and that’s what Cousins and the his receivers are putting up on a weekly basis.

“It’s what I thought when I met Adam and Stef [Diggs] in April,” Cousins said. “We threw on the field and I said, ‘These guys can play.’ ”

Coming off a 422 yard, 2 touchdown game against the league’s scariest defense, Kirk Cousins will continue to look Thielen’s way to ignite the Vikings’ offense.
