We’ve got our second set of Over/Unders from the folks at Bet Online, and we’re moving from the Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback to what could be his primary target in 2018.

Adam Thielen had a huge season for the Vikings last season, leading the team in receptions and receiving yardage en route to becoming the first 1,000-yard receiver the Vikings have fielded since 2009. But, can he duplicate the same sort of numbers he put up last season?

The folks from Bet Online seem to think he’s in for a big season. Here are the numbers they have for Thielen for this season in their Over/Under categories, although they only have two stats for him rather than three:

  • Receiving yards: 1,100
  • Receiving touchdowns: 5.5

Over the last two seasons, Thielen has averaged 80 receptions and 1,121 yards, along with 4.5 touchdowns. The Vikings have a lot of targets to give touches to in the red zone, which may explain the lack of touchdowns. Also, he’s going to have to develop the timing with Kirk Cousins that he had last season with Case Keenum, so that’s another thing to factor in.

Like the polls for Cousins, we’ll let these run for about five days, then shut them down and check the results. So, what do you think?
