Adam Thielen's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 14.8 FanDuel points and 18.4 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1019 more than $7.7K on FanDuel and +$722 more than $6.7K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Adam Thielen to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 104 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Tyreek Hill and ahead of Keenan Allen. He has averaged 9.44 fantasy points in his past 28 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#7) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #7 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Adam Thielen is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #29 fantasy position rank.

ADAM THIELEN WEEK 9 AND 10 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Adam Thielen is projected for 12.3 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #6 ranked wide receiver and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Julio Jones but behind Keenan Allen. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#21). He is projected for 9.3 fantasy points.
