Justin Jefferson logs five receptions for 71 yards in Week 1 overtime loss

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson caught five of nine targets for 71 yards and completed a pass attempt for 11 yards during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact:

Jefferson was drafted as the WR6 but was outshined by the play of fellow wide receiver Adam Thielen, who led the team in targets (10), receptions (9), receiving yards (92), and touchdowns (2). Jefferson still managed to see nine targets and nearly found the end zone on a big 34-yard reception that led to a Dalvin Cook goal-line touchdown. Fantasy managers should continue to roll Jefferson out as a WR1 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.
