Minnesota Vikings WR K.J. Osborn tallied five catches on six targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Although he did most of his damage on a 64-yard TD grab less than a minute into the game, this effort marks the second time in his many professional games in which the fifth-round rookie has been a significant part of the passing attack. While it is fair to say that his breakout is likely the result of Irv Smith getting hurt in August, there's no reason to suspect his role will diminish with the Vikings likely to play from behind a fair amount. At the very least, Osborn needs to be rostered in all leagues now.

Minnesota Vikings WR K.J. Osborn played 67 of a total 83 offensive snaps and caught seven passes for 76 yard against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1, and Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com believes Osborn is 'headed toward a consistent role' in the offense.
Huddle Up: Osborn probably won't catch seven passes on a routine basis as the No. 3 receiver, but he could find himself handling a sizeable role if either Adam Thielen or Justin Jefferson were to miss time.

Minnesota Vikings fifth-round pick WR K.J. Osborn will likely play special teams immediately, according to general manager Rick Spielman. '[He's] a slot-type receiver. I know when our coaches evaluated him, they thought he could continue to improve as a receiver, but his value is going to come as a potential punt returner for us,' Spielman said via video conference. 'We think he has a legitimate [shot at] winning the punt return and the kick return job with his explosive speed and power.'
