Justin Jefferson racks up 111 total yards and a score in Week 18

Justin Jefferson hauled in 5-of-7 targets for 107 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' season finale victory over the Bears. He added one carry for four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson came up just 16 yards short of Randy Moss' franchise record of 1,632 yards in a season. Nevertheless, he essentially served as one of the lone bright spots on offense for the Vikings this season, producing a robust 108/1,616/10 line. Fantasy owners were also fortunate to have him appear in all 17 games without sustaining an injury or testing positive for COVID. Not even 23 years-old until June, Jefferson will be a surefire top-five receiver on draft boards next season.

Justin Jefferson held to 58 scoreless yards in Week 17

Justin Jefferson hauled in 6-of-11 targets for 58 yards in Minnesota's defeat to Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson’s outlook was essentially doomed when Kirk Cousins was ruled out for tonight's contest due to testing positive for COVID-19. With Adam Thielen gone for the rest of the season, Jefferson unsurprisingly led the team in targets, receptions, and yardage. As long as Cousins is back under center and that Minnesota chooses to play their starters in the season finale against the Bears, despite being eliminated from playoff contention, Jefferson will look to end the year on a high note.

Justin Jefferson goes for 116 yards in Week 16

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.

Justin Jefferson records 47 yards and a score in Week 15 win

Justin Jefferson hauled in 4-of-10 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's victory versus Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson led the team with 10 targets, four receptions, and 47 receiving yards this week, as Kirk Cousins produced his worst performance of the year with 87 passing yards. The touchdown catch salvaged his fantasy night, though he registered only one reception in the second half. Despite the Vikings earning the win, this game should have served as a golden opportunity for the pass catchers, particularly Jefferson, to pile up yardage, considering that the entire Bears starting secondary was out due to COVID issues. Cousins and Jefferson haven't quite been on the same page in the last two weeks, as he's caught just 11-of-25 targets in that span. Regardless, the important takeaway is that he continues to be peppered with targets, keeping him in elite WR1 territory for next week against the Rams.

Justin Jefferson goes for 79 yards and a score versus Pittsburgh

Justin Jefferson hauled in 7-of-15 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's win against the Steelers. He added a carry for negative four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Predictably, Jefferson served as an absolute target-hog with Adam Thielen sidelined this week due to a high-ankle sprain. Unfortunately, he caught just seven balls on a career-high 15 targets, and missed multiple opportunities to haul in a second touchdown pass. He did have the luxury of watching his teammate Dalvin Cook return to action and light up the Steelers defense with 222 total yards plus two scores. Regardless if Thielen can make it back to the field next game, Jefferson will remain a high-end WR1 for Week 15 against the Bears.
