Adam Thielen's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 14.8 FanDuel points and 19.2 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1409 more than $7K on FanDuel and +$1078 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 148 projected fantasy points puts him at #10 behind Chris Godwin and ahead of Amari Cooper. He has averaged 11.78 fantasy points in his past 18 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.5 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more 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 not projected for elite value. Adam Thielen is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #7 fantasy position rank.

ADAM THIELEN WEEK 3 AND 4 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Adam Thielen is projected for 11.9 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #8 ranked wide receiver and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Davante Adams but behind Chris Godwin. Week 4 will not be as good based on projected rank (#26). He is projected for 9 fantasy points.
