Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson had six receptions for 58 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 2. Jefferson was targeted 11 times.
Huddle Up: Cold weather and no Kirk Cousins makes Justin a dull play... or something like that. With Sean Mannion's limitations, the Packers forced everything underneath and rallied to the ball. Jefferson still delivered a little value, and as long as he and Cousins are set to roll in Week 18 you should deploy JJ as a WR1.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson posted eight receptions for 116 yards on 12 targets in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: While Jefferson's three-game scoring streak came to a close, he posted his first 100-yard game since Dec. 5 in Detroit. He has emerged as a legit WR1 in all fantasy leagues this season. He'll look to keep it going at Green Bay in Week 17. He had eight grabs, 169 yards and two scores against the Packers in the first meeting Nov. 21.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson finished with four receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 10 targets in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Jefferson has scored in three straight games, and he has five total touchdowns across the past five outings. His yardage total was the lowest since Oct. 31 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he remains a legit WR1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson had seven receptions, 79 yards and a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Dec. 9. He was targeted 15 times.
Huddle Up: Early on it looked like Jefferson might have another huge game, but he and Cousins just couldn't quite connect on some shots into the end zone, and after halftime the Minnesota offense seemed to throttle down and struggle to get much going. While it ended up being on the quieter side by his lofty standards, Jefferson still delivered a 7-79-1 line and remains a must-start WR1.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson snagged 11 of 14 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 at the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Dec. 5. He added one rush of four yards.
Huddle Up: Should WR Adam Thielen (ankle) miss Week 14 on a short week, Jefferson's momentum should continue vs. a Pittsburgh Steelers unit that had allowed neutral-leaning numbers vs. WRs over the five games prior to Week 13. CB Joe Haden (groin) has missed time lately, and Pittsburgh has been gashed on the ground. There's probably a capped outlook for a conservative projection, but we prefer his upside for seeing extreme target volume again.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson has 19 catches for 321 yards and no touchdowns in the last three games against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Jefferson is the No. 1 receiver in PPR leagues the last three weeks and will be a salivating WR1 this week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson ended up with four receptions for a team-high 83 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Jefferson has rolled up 21 catches for 395 yards and two touchdowns across the past three outings, posting WR1-type numbers after a couple of mediocre games in late October and early November. He'll look to keep up the good work at Detroit in Week 13. He had seven grabs for 124 yards in the first meeting with the Lions back on Oct. 10.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson caught eight of his 10 targets for 169 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-31 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Jefferson has been on a tear the last two games, piling up 17 receptions on 21 targets for 312 yards. He should remain in the WR1 conversation against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson caught nine of his 11 targets for 143 yards in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Jefferson also lost four yards on his only rushing attempt.
Huddle Up: Jefferson was held to a meager five receptions on nine targets over his previous two games, but the Vikings got him going early and the Chargers' stout pass defense had no answer. If there is one concern his fantasy managers might have, it would be that he has found the end zone once in his last five contests following a three-game scoring streak. The Green Bay Packers' much-improved defense awaits in Week 11, but Jefferson will likely still be able to push for WR1 production if Minnesota makes a real effort to feed him as it did against the Chargers.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson posted three grabs for 69 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding a run for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Jefferson found the end zone for the first time since Oct. 3 against the Cleveland Browns. He has three or more grabs in seven of his eight games, and he remains a tremendous fantasy option in PPR leagues, with slightly lesser appeal in standard play. The Vikings travel to meet the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10.
