RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The former Minnesota State standout made 12 catches on 18 targets for 144 yards in 16 games during the 2015 season, and also racked up 89 yards on four carries. Thielen will be buried on the Vikings' wide receiver depth chart again in 2016, so he figures to spend most of his time on special teams during what will be his third season in the league.

2015

Thielen had eight receptions last season as he made the roster as a reserve receiver and special teams player. He'll try to reprise that role for the Vikings again in 2015. He was used at times as both a punt and kick returner. It's hard to see him having a large role on offense without multiple injuries in the receiving corps.

2014

An undrafted free agent from Minnesota State who is a long shot to make the active roster.

2013

Thielen will attempt to crack the roster as a reserve at receiver in training camp.
