WR - MIN
The Vikings have exercised Justin Jefferson's fifth-year option for 2024.
In the least surprising news of the day, the 23-year-old will remain in Minnesota for the next two years. Jefferson projects to be a Top 5 pick in most fantasy drafts in 2023 and is currently the No. 1 ranked player in dynasty. In his three-year career, he has tallied 324 receptions for 4,825 yards and 25 touchdowns.
Justin Jefferson caught just one pass for 15 yards in Minnesota's 41-17 blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
It was a very rough day for Minnesota's offense as a whole on Sunday, and Jefferson was no exception. He caught just one pass on the course of the day, and he was just a complete non-factor for the Vikings. He's been the best wide receiver in fantasy on the course of the year, but he really burned any fantasy managers with him in their league championship. He will certainly bounce back from this dismal game, but it will probably be too late for most.
Justin Jefferson caught 12 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown while also passing the Vikings' single-season receiving yards record during Minnesota's 27-24 win over New York in Week 16.
Jefferson moved his season total to 1,753 yards, and he is now only 211 yards behind Calvin Johnson's all-time single-season receiving yards record. Fantasy managers can continue to "set and forget" the stud wideout when Minnesota heads to Green Bay in Week 17.
Justin Jefferson caught 12 of 16 passes for 123 yards and one TD during Minnesota's historic 39-36 comeback win over Indianapolis.
Jefferson scored the first of three fourth-quarter touchdowns, hauling in an eight-yard pass from Kirk Cousins. This was his ninth 100-yard receiving game this season, bringing his total to 1,623 yards. He is now 323 behind Calvin Johnson's record for most receiving yards in a season. Jefferson has an appealing matchup against the Giants in Week 16, though at this point, it doesn't matter. He is matchup-proof.
Justin Jefferson caught 11 of 15 targets for 223 yards, a new franchise single-game record. Unfortunately, he did not find the end zone, and the Vikings lost 34-23 to the Lions.
The WR1 may have scored, but the referees ruled him out of bounds and blew the play dead. The only concern for fantasy managers is the lack of TD equity, but the volume and ceiling for the 23-year-old know no bounds. He faces Indianapolis (13th in pass DVOA), New York Giants (28), and Green Bay (9) for the fantasy playoffs and continues to be match-up proof.
