Thielen has leaped back into Fantasy relevance this year. He averages 17.52 points per game, he has missed double digits only twice. He is the WR11 on the season. And he is doing all this on the 1-10 Carolina Panthers with Bryce Young as the struggling quarterback. And they just fired head coach Frank Reich. It seems that nothing would benefit Thielen, but yet he is having an exceptional year.
That season hit a speed bump in Week 12 when he was targeted three times with one catch and two yards. I'll help with the math, 1.2 Fantasy points.
Frank Reich was calling the offensive plays and, except for last week, Thielen was averaging 20.3 points per game with Reich. Reich is now gone, but the Panthers get Tampa Bay next week who has given up the third most passing yards this season. Good for Young and good for Thielen. This week was a Blip.
