I'm not sure many realize just how difficult it would be for Jefferson to repeat his 2020 season. Not only was he a rookie, which is amazing in it's own right, but to finish with 1,400 yards on just 125 targets is ridiculous. How did that happen? Well, he caught 70.4 percent of his targets... at 15.9 yards a pop. No other wide receiver in the history of the game has totaled 1,400 yards on 125 or less targets. Bottom line... he needs more targets if he's going to live up to expectations because that's unlikely to happen again. With the defense getting back on track with Danielle Hunter (and adding in free agency), do the Vikings trend back to their run-heavy ways? Adam Thielen is a year older, but the chemistry between him and Kirk Cousins is magical. The sky is the limit for Jefferson with his talent, but will the targets follow? Don't forget this is the same team that held Stefon Diggs to 112 or less targets in 4-of-5 seasons.

Justin Jefferson sets rookie receiving record in season finale

Justin Jefferson caught nine of 12 targets for 133 yards in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson's huge day capped off a remarkable rookie year, as he set the rookie receiving record with 1,400 yards in 2020. The mark broke Anquan Boldin's 2003 record of 1,377 yards. Jefferson's monster campaign should make him an early-to-mid-round fantasy selection in 2021 drafts.
