  • K.J. Osborn's Arrow Pointing Up

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn is off to a strong start to his season heading into the team's Week 3 matchup against the Seahawks. Osborn enjoyed a fantastic training camp and it has translated into the regular season. Through the first two games, the 24-year-old has 12 catches on 15 targets for 167 yards with one touchdown as the third receiver in an offense that has played well through two games. The Seahawks have allowed 598 passing yards thus far this season and Osborn should continue to factor into the offense. Osborn is the third receiver behind teammates Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson but is worth a roster stash and could be a DFS bargain for production this weekend.

  • Can K.J. Osborn Build Off Week 1?

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn will try and build off his solid Week 1 performance this Sunday against the Cardinals. Osborn caught seven passes for 76 yards Week 1 against the Bengals and will face an Arizona secondary that allowed the 14th fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers last season. Osborn is unquestionably the third receiver in the Vikings offense behind Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. Osborn may not be ready for standard format fantasy lineups but could benefit again from the opposition paying attention to the other Vikings offensive weapons.

  • K.J Osborn Catches Two Passes Against Colts

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn caught two passes for 27 yards in the Vikings preseason loss to the Colts. The Vikings offense struggled for the second week in a row and Osborn caught the only two targets he saw in the game. But the Vikings played a portion of their starters for more than one quarter and Osborn hopes to be a contributor with the first-team offense this season. He currently is projected to be the team's WR3 when the season begins but veteran Dede Westbrook may be nipping at his heels before long.

  • K.J. Osborn Hauls In Deep Touchdown At Practice

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn caught a 50-yard touchdown in Thursday's practice session. Osborn continues to have a strong camp and now is building chemistry with starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Vikings also saw veteran receiver Dede Westbrook participate in his first full practice of training camp to add another dimension to the team's passing attack. At present, Osborn has the inside track for the WR3 role on the team but will need to produce in the preseason to hold off a player like Westbrook as the regular season draws nearer.

  • K.J. Osborn Catches Two Passes Against Broncos

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn caught two passes for 15 yards in the team's first preseason game against the Broncos. Osborn came into the contest as a training camp darling, earning rave reviews for his early play during practice. But this was a tough outing for the Vikings offense as they only mustered 84 passing yards as a team the whole game. Osborn was able to catch both of his targets and will be hoping for more opportunities when the Vikings open up their offensive playbook more for the next game.

  • K.J. Osborn Continues To Impress

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn continues to impress the coaching staff and is angling to become the team's primary return man. The fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft was invisible last year but the work he put in during the offseason is beginning to pay off. His route-running has improved and it has helped him show off his top-shelf speed. Osborn has made consistent plays during camp and should see plenty of action during the preseason. With star teammate Justin Jefferson dealing with a shoulder injury, there will be opportunity for players like Osborn in the coming weeks.

  • K.J. Osborn Drawing Praise From Coaching Staff

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn heads into training camp after performing well in organized team activities and minicamp, according to coaches. The second-year receiver was relegated to playing only special teams during his rookie season, but he is working hard for a bigger opportunity. The Vikings recently added to their wide receivers room with the signing of Dede Westbrook, but Osborn simply needs to focus on what he can control and continue to impress the coaching staff. Expect Osborn to see some run during the preseason, but he is considered a long shot to become a fantasy factor anytime soon.
