Separation artist. Always open on nearly every play. Mismatch out of the slot on linebackers and even slot corners due to his size. Great size for the position at 6'3", but moves incredibly well and is agile for his size. Great short area route runner. Lethal stutter step or shoulder fake to freeze defenders on slants, outs, etc. Excelled in pro-style offense at LSU. Has the size to play outside or inside at the next level. Great understanding of leverage on deeper routes and how to use positioning to create separation. On a deep fade, he'll lower his shoulder to fight off the corner getting his hand on him and use his speed to separate. Great short area agility. Able to stop quickly and accelerate. Excellent hands as a receiver and able to make difficult catches. Rare to see a drop on tape from him. Excels in contested catch situations and tracking the ball deep. Natural receiver who rarely uses his hands to reel catches in. Decent RAC ability, but nothing superb. Good but not great. Enough speed to exceed in the NFL, but won't be used as a burner down the field. Tough son of a gun. Used frequently in the run game and lined up on edge defenders sometimes. Competitor and battles until the whistle blows. Release is concerning due to his position in the slot. Rarely saw press coverage and unsure what his release package is like. But explosive off the line and that could be taught if it's not in his arsenal. Other concern would be the QB that was throwing him the ball...who created whose success? Overall though, a complete wide receiver who would be an excellent big slot wide receiver in the NFL. Can also be used outside. Really exciting prospect and should be a target for NFL teams that don't want to spend a premium price on Jeudy, Lamb, etc.

Justin Jefferson lone bright spot in Week 6 loss

Justin Jefferson hauled in nine of 11 targets for 166 yards and 2 TDs in the Vikings’ 40-23 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

For the third time in four weeks, Jefferson topped 100 yards. He’s now gone for a monstrous 23/467/3 line across his last four games and has established himself as a rock-solid WR2 moving forward. He’ll head into the Week 7 bye averaging nearly 90 yards per game through his first six NFL contests.
