He’s the only wide receiver in the league with at least five receptions in every single game this season. Adam Thielen is quickly shedding the “small school prospect” label as one of the biggest overachievers in the NFL — all as an undrafted player out of Minnesota State-Mankato.
Against the Redskins, Thielen was once again the focal point of the passing attack, cashing in on 12 targets for 8 receptions and 166 yards. With Stefon Diggs once again battling mild injuries throughout the season, Thielen has proved to be the most consistent wideout the Vikings have on a week-to-week basis.
His zero-to-hero status has quickly become a mainstream feel good story. However, if you’ve followed the team closely over his tenure you’d agree the national media is late to the party.
What’s better than Thielen highlights? Thielen highlights with Titanic music. Enjoy.
