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.
