Justin Jefferson finished the season 5th in points per game (16.8) despite missing seven games and losing starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Still, he had a standout season with 68 receptions from 100 targets, gaining a total of 1,074 receiving yards. Jefferson found the end zone 5 times, showcasing his ability to convert receptions into touchdowns. He commanded a 28% target share, 41% air yards share and finished 8th in weighted opportunity. Before Cousins' injury, he led all WRs in fantasy points scored (21.7 per game).

Jordan Addison Note

Jordan Addison ended the season with 70 receptions on 108 targets, amassing 911 yards at an average of 13 yards per reception. His long play of the season was a 62-yard catch. He was particularly effective in the red zone, scoring 10 touchdowns (5th) on a 17% target share. Totaled over 1,300 air yards. He played in all 17 games, contributing consistently to the Vikings' offense, with a total of 186.3 fantasy points, averaging about 11 points per game (WR28). Addison averaged slightly more points per game 12.2 (22% target share and 4 TDs) versus 10.1 (6 TDs) with Justin Jefferson sidelined. Considering the team will likely be without T.J. Hockenson to start the 2024 season coming off a torn ACL/MCL, Addison is a strong bet to return early low-end WR2 value in Year 2.

T.J. Hockenson Note

T.J. Hockenson would have been drafted as a top-three tight end in the vast majority of 2024 fantasy leagues if he hadn't torn his ACL and MCL on Dec. 24, putting his early-season availability for the new season in doubt. It's possible that the recovery from multiple ligament tears will keep Hockenson out until midseason or later, and that he won't be his typically impactful self immediately upon his return. A healthy Hockenson is a fantasy difference-maker. He had 86 catches for 914 yards and six touchdowns in 2022, good for a TE2 finish in PPR fantasy scoring behind only Travis Kelce. Hockenson was having an even better season in 2023, with 95 catches for 960 yards and five touchdowns before the injury. Monitor the reports on Hockenson's recovery throughout the offseason, and resist the temptation to overspend on a player trying to come back from major knee surgery.

Kirk Cousins Note

Kirk Cousins hits free agency in 2024, so there's a good chance he'll be playing for a team other than the Vikings in 2024. But it's not a lock that Cousins will be playing at all in Week 1. He tore his Achilles on Oct. 29, and as he heads into his age-36 season, we probably shouldn't assume he'll make a hasty recovery. It will be interesting if Cousins signs with a new team and isn't able to take any full-speed reps in a new offense before the start of the season. But Cousins will be coveted in free agency because he's one of the better pure passers in the league. Before going on IR, he was averaging 291.4 passing yards and 2.3 TD passes a game. For fantasy managers, drafting Cousins to be your starting quarterback would be risky, but once he's fully healthy, this proven veteran should be able to provide solid QB2 value.
