It's going to be tough for Jefferson to produce when the Vikings have thrown the ball just 51 times over the first two weeks, but he's caught 5-of-6 targets for 70 yards while running nearly all his routes from the slot, which should be good for production. The Titans have seventh-round rookie Chris Jackson covering the slot and he's been picked on a bit through two games, allowing eight catches for 81 yards and a touchdown on just 12 targets in his coverage. Let me be clear: He hasn't been very good. To further that point, PFF has graded him as the third worst cornerback in coverage through two weeks. If you're looking for a hail mary play this week, Jefferson might offer a surprise.After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.

 Higgins has shown flashes of his talent throughout the first couple weeks of the season, but there are simply too many mouths to feed right now in this offense for him to even be considered for your starting lineup. Higgins is a fantastic stash in Dynasty for next season, but he's not worth holding onto in redraft leagues right now.
