Adam Thielen

The Carolina Panthers offense has not looked great in Frank Reich's first season as head coach with rookie Bryce Young under center. However, that hasn't stopped Adam Thielen as he has had a career resurgence in Charlotte.

Thielen signed with the Panthers this offseason after a long career with the Minnesota Vikings. He was a PPR machine during his time in Minnesota but his production tailed off recently.

However, through eight games this season Thielen has 62 receptions, 610 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. He has been incredibly consistent since Week 2 with at least five receptions each game and 50 or more receiving yards in six of those seven games.

Bryce Young should continue to look the veteran's way as he tries to improve over the remainder of his rookie season.
