Despite dealing with injuries and bad quarterback play for part of the season, Jefferson finished as the WR5 in fantasy points per game. If you exclude Week 14, in which he played only 18% of the snaps, he was the WR4 in fantasy points per game. Even after Week 14, when he was suffering through the quarterback roulette wheel, Jefferson still churned out 22.1 fantasy points per game while drawing a 30.1% target share, manufacturing 3.03 YPRR, and blazing 0.134 FD/RR (ninth-best, per Fantasy Points Data). Jefferson is quarterback-proof, so it doesn't matter to me whether Sam Darnold or J.J. McCarthy is under center this season. Jefferson has proven he can still be a top-five fantasy wideout with putrid passers. If Darnold and McCarthy outperform expectations, Jefferson could still have WR1 overall upside.

Justin Jefferson signs 4-year, $140 million extension with Vikings

Justin Jefferson has signed a four-year, $140 million contract extension with the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson has been arguably the best receiver in football since his rookie season. It was only a matter of time until the Vikings worked out a contract with their young superstar, and this deal ties him to Minnesota for the long haul and gives rookie QB J.J. McCarthy a reliable target to throw to for years.
