Justin Jefferson is a reliable pass-catcher with a massive catch radius. Jefferson runs consistent routes. He rarely faced press coverage in the slot. He will also run a faster time than his tape represents. Jefferson does find holes in coverage and demonstrates reasonable body control. He will catch the ball in stride with average burst after the catch. He can threaten vertically, but there is concern about his separation skills on the outside. Jefferson is instinctive.
Dynasty Spin: Jefferson won't have competition outside of Adam Thielen as the Minnesota Vikings traded Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills. However, he will be the number two receiver in an offense that runs more than throws. Also, can Kirk Cousins carry more than one receiver to fantasy relevance? Another question is the role for Jefferson, will he be in the slot, wing, both? Even with these unknowns, Jefferson should be a solid WR2/3 for many dynasty teams. He is currently going in the late first round in rookie drafts and in the sixth round in start-ups.
