You are starting Jefferson weekly. The matchup doesn't matter. The opposing defense doesn't matter. Jefferson is unguardable. Plain and simple. He's eighth in Target share, 11th in air-yard share, and fifth in YPRR among wideouts as the WR4 in fantasy. He'll run about 76% of his routes against Asante Samuel (85.7% catch rate and 118.8 passer rating) and J.C. Jackson (46.2% catch rate and 72.0 passer rating). Week 3 Positional Value: WR1 overall

Justin Jefferson puts up juggernaut performance

Justin Jefferson put on a show Thursday night, hauling in 11 passes for 159 yards in a 34-28 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Although he didn't find the end zone Thursday, Jefferson's consistent production and high volume of targets make him an elite asset for fantasy managers. His season stats now stand at 20 receptions for 309 yards through two games, and while he's yet to score a touchdown, his performance suggests it's only a matter of time. Jefferson's play-by-play data shows a mix of short and deep completions, demonstrating his versatility and Cousins' trust in him as a go-to receiver. Looking ahead to Week 3, Jefferson will face off against the Los Angeles Chargers, where he'll look to continue his impressive start to the season.
