Justin Jefferson sets rookie receiving record in season finale

Justin Jefferson caught nine of 12 targets for 133 yards in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson's huge day capped off a remarkable rookie year, as he set the rookie receiving record with 1,400 yards in 2020. The mark broke Anquan Boldin's 2003 record of 1,377 yards. Jefferson's monster campaign should make him an early-to-mid-round fantasy selection in 2021 drafts.

Justin Jefferson goes 8/104, passes Moss in historic game

Justin Jefferson caught eight of 11 targets for 104 yards in the Vikings’ 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson surpassed Randy Moss' Vikings rookie record of 69 receptions and finished the day with 73 on the season. He also took another stride toward reaching Moss' rookie receiving yards record. Now up 1,182 yards on the season, Jefferson will have two games to hit the 132 yards needed to eclipse Moss' 1,313 from 1998. Jefferson will face New Orleans in Friday's Christmas Day showdown.

Justin Jefferson held in check in Week 14 loss

Justin Jefferson caught four of eight targets for 39 yards and completed a two-point conversion in the Vikings’ 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson led the Vikings in targets, but he finished behind Irv Smith Jr and Tyler Conklin in receiving yards, as Minnesota couldn’t get much going in what appeared to be a favorable on-paper matchup. Jefferson will face a stiff test against Chicago’s secondary in Week 15, but volume and talent will keep him on the WR2 map for that one.
