Vikings Star WR Adam Thielen Stuck On COVID-19 List, Out Sunday

According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Vikings star wideout Adam Thielen will not play this weekend as he remains on the COVID-19 list.

We can hear the squeals of Fantasy owners already.

Fowler’s tweet leaves some hope that Thielen’s status is still open and could change before Sunday, so Fantasy owners shouldn’t give up just yet.

Losing the league-leader in touchdowns (11) is tough news on its own, but with Kirk Cousins as the quarterback, it’s a nightmare. Cousins hasn’t been a travesty so far this season with 20 TDs and 11 picks, but Thielen had a lot to do with those numbers.

The Minnesota Vikings play Teddy Bridgewater and the 4-7 Carolina Panthers, so it’ll be interesting to see how they fare without their best player.
