Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jefferson began the year as the team’s WR3 behind Adam Thielen and Bisi Johnson, catching just five passes (on six targets) for 70 yards in his first two games while playing less than 70% of the snaps. He finished with 88-1400-7 on 125 targets and was the No. 4 fantasy receiver from Week 3 on, averaging 5.9-95-0.50 on 8.5 targets per game in that span. Expect more of the same in 2021.

MIN WR Justin Jefferson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Panthers

Jefferson turned in another strong performance against the Lions, catching 7-of-8 targets for 124 yards. He's now racked up 80+ yards in three consecutive games, including two 100-yard games during that stretch. Jefferson has a target share over four percent greater than teammate Adam Thielen. The second-year wideout is the clear-cut top option in this offense.

Jefferson goes up against a Panthers defense that ranks 6th in aFPA to wide receivers, but his alpha usage helps mitigate the risk with the tough matchup. Jefferson ranks 21st in target share and 6th in air yard share. There's always a chance that he can get loose downfield, even in tough matchups. Jefferson is an every-week WR1.
