  • Van Jefferson Has Realistic Chance To Return For Week 1

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) has a realistic chance to be ready to return for Week 1 after a successful surgery. The 26-year-old recently underwent surgery and it reportedly went great. He's not expected to need much time in order to get back up to speed. Jefferson isn't a lock to play in Week 1, but he certainly seems to be doing well. It's worth noting that this was a minor procedure, so Jefferson won't have a long rehab process ahead of him. Ben Skowronek and Tutu Atwell are candidates to see more snaps until Jefferson returns to the field. Fantasy managers should consider Jefferson a late-round option on draft day.

  • Van Jefferson To Miss A Few Weeks

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) will miss "a few weeks" since he needs to undergo knee surgery. Apparently, Jefferson was advised to have surgery after meeting with a specialist on Monday regarding a lingering knee issue. He already had a minor procedure on the same knee earlier this offseason, so this isn't a great sign. With Jefferson missing training camp time over the next few weeks, it'll give Ben Skowronek and Tutu Atwell a chance to stand out in the receiver corps behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson II. Jefferson finished his second NFL season with 50 catches on 89 targets for 802 yards and six touchdowns in 17 regular season games, and he'll be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues for WR depth if he's ready to go for the start of the regular season.

  • Van Jefferson To See Specialist For His Knee

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) will visit with a specialist on Monday for a knee issue that has been bothering him in training camp, according to a source. He's been doing maintenance and faces the possibility of missing a few weeks. Jefferson will have more information after his appointment with a specialist, including whether he'll need surgery. The 26-year-old already had a minor knee surgery in the offseason, so this isn't ideal news for him. Jefferson is set to open the year as the No. 3 receiver behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson II, but that's now in jeopardy. If he's not ready to begin the start of the regular season, Ben Skowronek and Tutu Atwell would be battling for snaps as the No. 3.

  • Van Jefferson Had Knee Procedure This Offseason

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) stated he played through a knee injury at the end of last season. As a result, he had a minor procedure to clean things up during the offseason. However, after rehabbing throughout the spring, the 25-year-old was labeled "100% healthy." Jefferson had a quality season in 2021, finishing with 50 receptions for 802 yards and six touchdowns while maintaining an average of 16.0 yards per catch. Although Allen Robinson II is now on the roster, Jefferson should have flashes of production in 2022-23. He probably won't be a week-to-week fantasy threat. Yet, the former Gator is worth a look in deep formats as he remains one of the best downfield menaces in the league.
