This is a *very* tough look for the rookie, particularly with the sort of outcome that happened with a young former NFL player just a couple of years ago. As of now, it looks like maybe no one was hurt but that doesn't rule out league discipline. For fantasy purposes, Osborn has proven to be a reliable target when given the opportunity. We will watch for more news updates.
MIN WR K.J. Osborn - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Green Bay Packers
K.J. Osborn crashed back to Earth after his 16-target outlier performance in Week 15 with only three catches and 17 scoreless yards last week against the Giants. Osborn is seeing a healthy amount of playing time as the Vikings' third wide receiver, but it's difficult to consistently earn a prominent target share working behind All-World target hog Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and even tight end T.J. Hockenson. Osborn is good for an occasional blow-up performance when the Vikings see a negative game script, but he typically hovers around 3-5 targets per game. That is not something you want to bank on as a starting option during fantasy championship week.
