88 receptions 1,400 yards 7 TDs as a rookie! Justin Jefferson is movin' on up, to the East side of Ringo's deluxe ranking, up high. Moving on up. To the Top 5 (of my WR ranks.) Finally got a piece of the (fantasy) pie. That's a reference to the sit com The Jeffersons theme song for you youngsters out there. He's a PPR machine and he's only going to get better. Wesi!!!Ruggs rookie season was a major disappointment. In fairness to him Jon Gruden's offesne is very complex and covid protocols hurt a lot of rookies with their development. A full offseason should help 2020 rookies like Ruggs. He also battled injuries, hurting his knee in week 1. Ruggs still has world class speed. He's a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. The concern is he doesn't get the ball enough. His ADP is pretty cheap (12th round), but if he doesn't get more targets it won't matter. Worth a shot based on his talent & affordable price tag.

In his first NFL season after dominating college football in 2019, Justin Jefferson hauled in 88 catches for 7 TDs and an all-time rookie record 1400 receiving yards. This was good for a WR6 overall finish in half-PPR scoring, ahead of guys like DK Metcalf, Mike Evans, Allen Robinson, etc. Jefferson was also the first rookie WR named an All-Pro since Randy Moss in 1998, he was only the third WR ever to make the pro bowl at 21 years old (Moss in '98 and Amari Cooper in '15), he finished tied for first in the NFL with 23 receptions over 20-yards, and he is now second all time in yards per game for a rookie (87.5), only behind Odell Beckham Jr. (108.8). For the 2nd season in a row, QB Kirk Cousins finished in the top-7 in True Throw Value. True Throw Value strips outside factors and minimizes randomness by looking at a QB's full volume and production to find their efficiency on a micro-level. In 2020, Kirk Cousins finished second overall behind only Aaron Rodgers. Despite his elite efficiency, Cousins attempted a pass only 516 times in 2020, good for 15th in the NFL. Jefferson, who was the target on 125 of those pass attempts, was only 16th in the NFL in targets. To put that into perspective, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen each recorded 149+ targets in 2018, their last season fully-healthy season together. Under Gary Kubiak last season, the Vikings were a run-first team, passing the ball on just 53% of snaps, limiting the opportunity for Jefferson and teammate Adam Thielen, who both finished as WR1's regardless. Now with Klint Kubiak, 33, taking over as OC, new opportunities could be on the horizon. In addition to working under his dad, Klint Kubiak has worked with Kliff Kingsbury and Kevin Stefanski, two young coaches who have had offensive success in their young careers. Klint Kubiak also has a very close relationship with Kirk Cousins, as he has spent the last 2 seasons as the Vikings QB Coach. "If we don't evolve, then we'll be left in the dust," Kubiak told Vikings.com. "That's every team in the NFL, always trying to find ways to evolve your scheme and trying to make yourself less predictable."

 Of all the rookie receivers last year, Ruggs looked to be in perhaps the best spot to provide immediate value given the truncated offseason. Most expected him to be the recipient of quick passes and just use his speed where he didn't need much time to develop a rapport with Derek Carr. Unfortunately, the Raiders completely misused Ruggs, as he had an aDOT of 17.4, second highest in the game among receivers with at least 30 targets, and was targeted downfield almost non-stop. Injuries were a part of it, of course, as Ruggs played more on the outside after Bryan Edwards got hurt, but it never seemed like the Raiders understood Ruggs' strengths. With another offseason, hopefully they will, and given the draft capital used on him, the team is surely looking to find ways for him to succeed this year. Don't draft him as a fantasy starter, but he has plenty of upside for your bench.

I'm not sure many realize just how difficult it would be for Jefferson to repeat his 2020 season. Not only was he a rookie, which is amazing in it's own right, but to finish with 1,400 yards on just 125 targets is ridiculous. How did that happen? Well, he caught 70.4 percent of his targets... at 15.9 yards a pop. No other wide receiver in the history of the game has totaled 1,400 yards on 125 or less targets. Bottom line... he needs more targets if he's going to live up to expectations because that's unlikely to happen again. With the defense getting back on track with Danielle Hunter (and adding in free agency), do the Vikings trend back to their run-heavy ways? Adam Thielen is a year older, but the chemistry between him and Kirk Cousins is magical. The sky is the limit for Jefferson with his talent, but will the targets follow? Don't forget this is the same team that held Stefon Diggs to 112 or less targets in 4-of-5 seasons.

How are we feeling about Justin Jefferson heading into 2021, folks?! Wow! Coming off of a truly ridiculous rookie season, the arrow can't be pointing any higher heading into year two. Jefferson put up an absurd 70% Catch Rate on 125 targets with a 15.9 Yards Per Reception total in his rookie season, which is one of the most unbelievable stats from last season. Despite barely being involved in the offense the first two weeks of the season, Jefferson finished as the WR6 and there's very little reason to doubt that he can finish in that range again in 2021. Based on his previous performance, you're absolutely going to have to pay a premium price for Jefferson in fantasy this season if you want him on your roster. However, if you want to build your fantasy roster around the stud wideout, you're not going to get any complaints from this analyst. He's that good. My Very Early Projection: 93-1351-8 receiving.

Jefferson was incredible in his rookie season with 125 targets, 88 receptions, 1,400 yards and 7 touchdowns. He should be an absolute star in his second year.
