Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Vikings made Jefferson the fifth receiver off the board in the first round. This is a good landing spot from an opportunity/quarterback standpoint, though the Vikings were very run-heavy last year, and Adam Thielen is a target-magnet (when healthy), so one wonders how many targets will be headed Jefferson's way in 2020. At offensive coordinator, the Vikings did replace noted run enthusiast Kevin Stefanski with Gary Kubiak, who has been pretty run/pass balanced late in his career. Kevin Zatloukal's WR Success Model gives Jefferson a 66% chance to finish in the top 36 in his first three seasons. It was the best score of this rookie class.

MIN WR Justin Jefferson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs Carolina

Jefferson continued his astonishing rookie season last week against Dallas as he turned his five targets into three receptions for 86 yards and one touchdown. Even in catching the three receptions, Jefferson looked great all game and scorched CB Anthony Brown for the wide-open 39-yard score.

In a regular setting this week, Jefferson would be a middling WR2 as his matchup against Carolina is a tough one with the Panthers ranking third in aFPA to WRs this season. However, with Adam Thielen set to miss this game due to being place on the reserved/COVID-19 list, Jefferson is in full-blown WR1 territory. This matchup will not be easy for Jefferson, but the rookie has shown incredible ability and production all season, and with a wealth of targets set to come his way, his fantasy managers might be in for a treat.
