Adam Thielen (hamstring) targeting Week 9 return for Vikings

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is targeting a Week 9 return versus the Kansas City Chiefs, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Thielen was a DNP on Monday's estimated injury report and is expected to sit out Thursday's Week 8 game against the Washington Redskins. The good news is it sounds like the hamstring injury will only cost him one game. Seventh-round rookie Bisi Johnson replaced Adam Thielen in two-wide sets on Sunday. Stefon Diggs should dominate targets against Washington.

Thielen is averaging 13.5 FanDuel points per game this season. He has 27 receptions for 391 yards (14.5 per catch) and 6 touchdowns on 40 targets.
