Los Angeles Rams WR Van Jefferson hauled in two of his three targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 versus the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Outside of deeper leagues, Jefferson wasn't in too many starting lineups this weekend. However, he rewarded his fantasy managers on the Rams' third offensive play, plucking what was about a 50-yard throw in the air from Matthew Stafford. That should have been the extent of his gain, but both Chicago players in his general vicinity did not touch him after he went to the ground on the grab and he took it the rest of the way for a score. Jefferson doesn't need to be added in most leagues because he won't have many games like this as the fourth or fifth priority in this passing game, but fantasy managers could do worse in a pinch.

Los Angeles Rams WR Van Jefferson is likely to see a large increase in his snap total with WR Cooper Kupp out for Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Jefferson's production isn't likely to be great enough to use in most seasonal fantasy leagues which decide a champion in Week 17, but he could be a sneaky DFS selection at a nice price. Of course, he will have John Wolford making his first NFL start, and not Jared Goff, so Jefferson's stats still might not be eye popping.

Los Angeles Rams WR Van Jefferson had just one target in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it was good for a seven-yard touchdown, his first as a pro.
Huddle Up: Jefferson has been fairly quite, totaling just six receptions for 67 yards across the past seven outings since four grabs for 45 yards in Week 2 in Philadelphia. He can mostly be left to the waiver wire in fantasy leagues despite the score. The Rams host the 49ers in Week 12.

Los Angeles Rams WR Van Jefferson has been exciting coaches and teammates alike during training camp, and he has been a quick study learning every receiver position. 'All of those guys (Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds) told me, 'Learn all of those positions so they can throw you in there any any position when they need you,' Jefferson said Monday, Aug. 24. Head coach Sean McVay also said he is pleased with the third-round pick's progress.
Huddle Up: Jefferson has several veterans in front of him on the depth chart, so the excitement for the rookie should be tamped down from a fantasy perspective. Still, he is someone to remember during the season, especially if injuries or illness force those in front of him to have to take a seat. He is also emerging as a decent target in long-term dynasty formats.

Los Angeles Rams second-round pick WR Van Jefferson impressed the Rams with how technically sound he was in running routes. He reminded them of a combination of WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods.
Huddle Up: Jefferson is worth a WR5 flyer, but he's coming off of a foot surgery. He might not be fully ready to be a fantasy cog until 2021. Kupp is in a contract year, and Jefferson could be in line to replace him after the season.
