Fantasy Advice

Although placed in a tier with other WR capable of landing in the number one spot, pretty clear choice for WR1 and overall top choice in most 1QB leagues (half to full PPR, start 2 RB to 3 WR). Top talent, narrow tree, solid QB, on a team that is likely to be playing from behind, there is little reason to doubt a JJ repeat performance. Except his contract situation, but they should work it out.

But this week will bring a minor chapter in a few contract sagas. Justin Jefferson's status with the Vikings is among them. Jefferson did not report to the first day of the Vikings' [...]

  • Justin Jefferson Doesn't Report For Voluntary Workouts

    Headshot for Justin Jefferson

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said that wide receiver Justin Jefferson did not report on Monday for Day 1 of voluntary workouts. The workouts this spring are voluntary, and Jefferson is angling for a new contract. It was a disappointing year for Jefferson in 2023 due to injury, as he played in a career-low 10 games. However, the three-time Pro Bowler still managed to go over 1,000 yards receiving for the fourth straight season to begin his NFL career, also adding five touchdowns. The 24-year-old remains one of the best wideouts, if not the best, in football when he's healthy. However, contract situation aside, his fantasy value for 2024 is inevitably going to take a hit after quarterback Kirk Cousins left in free agency to play for the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Vikings Still Not Interested In Trading Justin Jefferson

    Headshot for Justin Jefferson

    At the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, Minnesota Vikings general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah aggressively rejected the idea of trading star wide receiver Justin Jefferson. The Vikings came close to extending Jefferson last offseason, and the team still has no plans to trade him despite quarterback Kirk Cousins' departure to the Atlanta Falcons in free agency, according to sources. The 25-year-old pass-catcher is currently signed through the 2024 season. With Cousins gone, the Vikings signed former first-rounder Sam Darnold. Unless the team makes a splash in the upcoming NFL draft for a rookie signal-caller, all signs point to Darnold taking over the starting gig in Minnesota, which would give Jefferson far less upside as an elite WR1 for fantasy purposes.

  • Vikings Have "No Intent" To Trade Justin Jefferson

    Headshot for Justin Jefferson

    The Vikings made a late push to extend Justin Jefferson last offseason, and while both sides made it clear that they were fine with tabling talks until this year, that hasn’t stopped pundits from speculating on a potential divorce. Head coach Kevin O'Connell was quick to dismiss those rumors, stating during an appearance on PFT […]

  • Vikings Not Looking To Trade Justin Jefferson

    Headshot for Justin Jefferson

    Minnesota Vikings All-Pro wide receiver Justin Jefferson has been the subject of social-media chatter lately as a potential trade candidate this offseason, but general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah said the idea of trading Jefferson is "not something that has once crossed my mind." The speculation is coming this offseason because of the fact that the two sides haven't been able to work out a long-term extension yet. The 24-year-old made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in the league before playing in a career-low 10 games in 2023 due to injury. But Jefferson still managed his fourth straight 1,000-yard season despite his injury. While he'll remain an elite WR1 in fantasy heading into drafts this fall, whether quarterback Kirk Cousins re-signs in free agency will be a major talking point as it relates to Jefferson this offseason.

    Headshot for Kirk Cousins

    Today marks the opening of the franchise tag window, but Kirk Cousins‘ contract is not set to expire until after the deadline for teams to apply the tag. He is therefore on track for free agency unless another Vikings agreement can be worked out. Cousins looms as one of the key figures in the 2024 free […]
