Justin Jefferson Note

Since his monster Week 1 performance, Jefferson has struggled. Over his last two games, he's seen a 22% target share with 22.5% of the team's air yards. Among the 58 wide receivers with ten or more targets over that span, he ranks 54th in yards per route run and 57th in PFF receiving grade. He'll run about 71% of his routes against Marshon Lattimore and Justin Evans. Lattimore has allowed a 42.9% catch rate and 51.5 passer rating. Evans has been more pliable with a 64.3% catch rate and 84.2 passer rating in coverage. Despite the tough corner matchups, Jefferson is set to crush in Week 4. The Saints' move to zone will be their undoing. Among all wide receivers with five or more zone targets, Jefferson is the 4th-highest grade receiver per PFF. He ranks third in yards per route run against zone coverage with 48.1% of his target volume against zone. Jefferson is a top-five receiver this week.

Adam Thielen Note

Over the last two weeks Thielen has shown signs of life as the WR31 in fantasy with an 18.3% target share (30.2% of the team's air yards). His usage has increased with Jefferson flopping, but his efficiency is still blah. In those two games he's only 47th in weighted opportunity with a 1.27 yards per route run. Thielen is a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 this week running about 63% of his routes against Lattimore and Bradley Roby. Roby has allowed a 45.5% catch rate and 62.9 passer rating.

Despite his clutch touchdown and the big game last week, Osborn is only a low-end flex or WR5/6. Even with the big game last week, he's still only seen 12.4% of the targets and a 22.4% air yard share as the WR63 in fantasy. He'll run about 55% of his routes against Evans in the slot.
