Justin Jefferson hauled in 7-of-15 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's win against the Steelers. He added a carry for negative four yards.
Predictably, Jefferson served as an absolute target-hog with Adam Thielen sidelined this week due to a high-ankle sprain. Unfortunately, he caught just seven balls on a career-high 15 targets, and missed multiple opportunities to haul in a second touchdown pass. He did have the luxury of watching his teammate Dalvin Cook return to action and light up the Steelers defense with 222 total yards plus two scores. Regardless if Thielen can make it back to the field next game, Jefferson will remain a high-end WR1 for Week 15 against the Bears.
