Adam Thielen Hangs 145 Yards On Seahawks In Week 3 Loss

Sunday, September 24, 8:50 PM

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Adam Thielen turned in a huge game in a 37-27 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. Thielen caught 11 of his 14 targets for 145 yards and a touchdown in the loss, continuing his excellent form of late. The veteran wideout had a slow game in Week 1 but has popped off for 18 catches, 199 yards, and two touchdowns over his past two contests. Emerging as the No. 1 WR in Carolina, Thielen is looking like any every week, must-start moving forward. Next week, he will take on a Minnesota Vikings secondary that was just torched by the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3.

Alec Pierce Non-Existent In Season Opener

Sunday, September 10, 9:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce didn't see many opportunities during the team's season-opening loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The young wideout only caught one ball for five yards and was targeted three times in this contest. Pierce was fifth in the pecking order in terms of targets and he wasn't able to turn it into much either. He doesn't seem to be on the fantasy radar right now and managers should probably look elsewhere heading into Week 2 if wide receiver help is needed.
