Fantasy Impact:

As was expected, the Vikings waited until their bye week to activate Jefferson from injured reserve, giving him an extra week of recovery before needing to get back on the field. After shocking the NFL world with a five-game win streak while starting three different quarterbacks to get themselves back in the playoff hunt, Minnesota has since tumbled into consecutive losses. The return of Jefferson, who was averaging 7.2 catches and 114.2 receiving yards per game in his early-season tear, could give the team the boost they need to claw right back into the playoffs with five games to go.
