Justin Jefferson removed from reserve/COVID-19 list

Vikings first-round pick WR Justin Jefferson has been removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson can now join the team in the preseason and he’ll need all the reps with Kirk Cousins as he can get with what was a shortened offseason. He should be the frontrunner for the WR2 role in Minnesota.

Justin Jefferson placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

Vikings 1st-round pick WR Justin Jefferson has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

This doesn’t necessarily mean Jefferson has the virus, but it means he may have come into contact with somebody that does. There’s no exact timetable for his return, as all situations come with different circumstances. T Blake Brandel, S Brian Cole II, and OL Tyler Higby are other Vikings who have been placed on Reserve/COVID-19.

Justin Jefferson inks rookie deal with the Vikings

The Vikings have agreed to terms with first-round pick WR Justin Jefferson.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson will receive a $7.1 million signing bonus with his deal. He is expected to play the slot and start opposite of star WR Adam Thielen. Jefferson hauled in 12-of-13 contested catches in 2019, the highest rate in college football, per PFF. The 21-year-old has an easy path to targets and is currently 53rd among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Justin Jefferson expected to play in the slot 'quite a bit'

Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak says Justin Jefferson will play in the slot "quite a bit" this season.

Fantasy Impact

"That's something he's exceptional at" Kubiak added. Jefferson ran 78% of his routes from inside last year and it's clear that the Vikings want him to continue a role he has had success with. Adam Thielen will likely play a lot more outside this year with Jefferson in town and Stefon Diggs traded to Buffalo.

Justin Jefferson selected No. 22 by Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have selected wide receiver Justin Jefferson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings acquired this pick from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for Stefon Diggs this off-season, and they use it to select a replacement receiver. The 6’1”, 202-pound LSU product ran 78% of his routes out of the slot and is admittedly is a bit of an odd fit as Minnesota still has Adam Thielen on the roster. However, Jefferson is another weapon for Kirk Cousins who will function as another security blanket over the middle.
