RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Thielen had eight receptions last season as he made the roster as a reserve receiver and special teams player. He'll try to reprise that role for the Vikings again in 2015. He was used at times as both a punt and kick returner. It's hard to see him having a large role on offense without multiple injuries in the receiving corps.

2014

An undrafted free agent from Minnesota State who is a long shot to make the active roster.

2013

Thielen will attempt to crack the roster as a reserve at receiver in training camp.
