Jordan Addison Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Vikings are signing WR Justin Jefferson to a four-year extension, according to NFL Network. The $140 million deal includes $110 million in guarantees and will make him the highest-paid non-QB in the league.

Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson admitted recently that he has no timetable for return from last year's multi-ligament knee injury. Hockenson tore his right MCL and ACL on December 24. The MCL injury delayed the ACL surgery until January 29, pushing back Hockenson's timeline. He'll be just a little over seven months removed from surgery come Week 1.

The Vikings acquired the 23rd overall pick of this year's draft -- plus pick No. 232 -- from the Texans in exchange for picks 42, 188, and a 2025 second-rounder. Minnesota now holds the 11th and 23rd overall picks in the draft. The obvious conclusion here is that the Vikings are stockpiling ammo to make a move up for a QB. They'd likely need to trade into the top three to land Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, or Drake Maye. Or they could make a smaller move up for J.J. McCarthy. Any of those guys would be good news for the short and long-term fantasy outlooks of WR Justin Jefferson, WR Jordan Addison, and TE T.J. Hockenson. QB Sam Darnold currently tops Minnesota's depth chart.

The Vikings and QB Sam Darnold agreed to a one-year deal worth "up to" $10 million, NFL Network reports. That's more than "backup money" but doesn't necessarily guarantee Darnold the 2024 starting job. Nick Mullens and Jaren Hall are the other QBs currently on the roster, but Minnesota could certainly add a rookie in April's draft. It's been a popular landing spot for Michigan's J.J. McCarthy in mock drafts. Darnold attempted 46 passes for the 49ers last year, with 26 of them coming in a meaningless regular-season finale. He started 17 games for the Panthers across the 2021 and 2022 seasons, completing 59.5% of his passes at 6.7 yards per attempt -- right around his career averages. Darnold would be a significant downgrade from QB Kirk Cousins for Minnesota's pass catchers.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison caught 4 of 8 targets for 57 receiving yards and a TD in Week 18’s loss vs. the Lions. He ends this season ranking first in receiving TDs (12), third in receiving yards (911), and fourth in receptions (70) among his rookie WR counterparts. While the presence of teammate Justin Jefferson puts a cap on his long-term upside of ever developing as a true alpha,” Addison has proven more than capable of being a viable lineup asset with potential for blow-up games. He should be considered as a strong low-end WR2 in dynasty moving forward.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Packers. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported this morning that the team originally believed Addison would miss multiple weeks with this injury and that he’ll need to be monitored throughout this game. The rookie is a risky fantasy play.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) will need to be monitored throughout tonight's game vs. the Packers, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. Addison was originally expected to miss multiple weeks with his ankle injury, Glazer adds. The rookie obviously comes with elevated risk in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) will play vs. the Packers tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Addison got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but it's fair to assume that he won't be at 100% for this one. QB Jaren Hall also adds some unknown to Addison's Week 17 outlook. At least he gets an awesome matchup against a struggling Packers defense that will be without CBs Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Kevin O’Connell expressed some optimism about Addison’s status on Friday, per ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, but added that more progress needs to be made. We’ll look for further updates on the rookie.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That seemingly gives him a chance to play vs. the Packers on Sunday night. We'll see what Addision does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport labeled him "week-to-week" on Monday, so the rookie seems unlikely to play vs. the Packers on Sunday night. Addison's absence would leave K.J. Osborn as Minnesota's No. 2 WR -- and a solid target bet with TE T.J. Hockenson also out.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport labeled Vikings WR Jordan Addison "week-to-week" with the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The rookie is scheduled for additional testing on Monday. It's worth noting that HC Kevin O'Connell said after yesterday's game that Addison might be able to push through this injury. But, at least for now, fantasy owners should plan on being without Addison in Week 17 lineups.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison hurt his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Lions. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update the rookie's status when we know more.

Update: Addison has been ruled out.

The Vikings are not activating WR Justin Jefferson off IR this weekend, meaning he won't play Sunday night against the Broncos. Minnesota will need to activate Jefferson for Week 12 -- or leave him on IR for the rest of the season. Jefferson got the "questionable" label on Friday's practice report, so we're assuming he'll be ready to play next week. But we'll certainly be watching for confirmation. Jefferson's continued absence leaves target share available for TE T.J. Hockenson, WR Jordan Addison, and others. It also hurts the upside of QB Joshua Dobbs.

Vikings WR K.J. Osborn (concussion) is out for today’s game vs. the Saints. He’s cleared the concussion protocol, but the team is opting to hold Osborn out. He should be back for Week 11. Osborn’s absence leaves Minnesota with WRs Jordan Addison, Brandon Powell, Trishton Jackson, N’Keal Harry, and Jalen Nailor. Addison is the only viable fantasy play.

Vikings WR K.J. Osborn (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Saints. With WR Justin Jefferson also not expected to play, Minnesota will be down to WRs Jordan Addison, Brandon Powell, Trishton Jackson, N'Keal Harry, and Jalen Nailor. Addison and TE T.J. Hockenson should easily lead in targets.

Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson hauled 7 of 12 targets for 69 receiving yards in Week 9 vs. the Falcons. WR Jordan Addison also had a strong performance, logging 52 yards on 5 catches in the contest. As painful as losing QB Kirk Cousins to a torn Achilles was, it seems as though the recently acquired Joshua Dobbs is going to be able to float the fantasy viability of both. Next week, Hockenson and Addison will face a stingy Saints’ defense (ninth in pass defense DVOA).

Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell said Tuesday that QB Jaren Hall will start this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. QB Josh Dobbs will need at least a week to get up to speed in the offense. Hall replaced QB Kirk Cousins last week, completing three of four passes for 23 yards on 11 snaps. The fifth-round rookie started for BYU the past two years, completing 65% of his passes at 8.6 yards per attempt with 51 TDs vs. 11 INTs. Hall also ran for 657 yards and six TDs across those two seasons and then clocked a 4.64-second 40 time at his Pro Day. There's some rushing potential here, but Hall is just a desperation QB2 play this week. He adds obvious risk to Minnesota's pass catchers.

A Monday MRI confirmed that Vikings QB Kirk Cousins tore his Achilles in the Week 8 win over the Packers, NFL Network reports. Cousins will miss the rest of the 2023 season. His contract is set to void in March, and Cousins will turn 36 in August, leaving his football future very uncertain. The Vikings, meanwhile, are left with QBs Jaren Hall and Sean Mannion for now. QB Nick Mullens, who at least has 655 NFL pass attempts under his belt, is eligible to come off IR next week. We'll see if Minnesota makes a move for a free-agent QB or swings a trade before tomorrow's trade deadline. Regardless, Cousins' absence is bad news for all of the team's skill-position players.

Vikings WR Jordan Addison logged 7 receptions on 8 targets in Sunday's win over the Packers. He turned that into 82 yards and a TD. Unfortunately, he also lost QB Kirk Cousins to a late-game Achilles' tear. That will challenge Addison's ability to remain start-worthy in our fantasy football lineups. We'll see whether Minnesota moves to upgrade on rookie QB Jaren Hall before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline.
