Justin Jefferson hauled in 8-of-12 targets for 116 yards in the Vikings' loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

Jefferson and the rest of the Vikings offense were remarkably stagnant in the first half, as he went for merely 14 yards. Fantasy owners were undoubtedly relieved to see him rack up 102 yards in the second half, as Minnesota woke up and kept the game within reach despite the loss. He additionally surpassed Odell Beckham Jr. for the most receiving yards in a player's first two seasons. He has been a target monster in the final stretch of the season, averaging 12.8 targets across the last four weeks. Whether or not Adam Thielen is able to make it for Week 17's crucial matchup against Green Bay after re-aggravating his high-ankle sprain, Jefferson remains a locked-in elite WR1.
