Vikings WR Justin Jefferson told reporters Wednesday that he'll play Saturday against the Bengals. That's not a shock, given the WR practiced (limited) Tuesday -- just two days after sustaining a chest injury in the loss to the Raiders. We have Jefferson projected in the lineup for Week 15 but will certainly watch him throughout the week for any setbacks. Minnesota's switch to Nick Mullens at QB adds risk to the WR's fantasy outlook.

Vikings WR Justin Jefferson (chest) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. It's excellent news that he was out there at all just two days after suffering that chest injury.

Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell labeled WR Justin Jefferson "day-to-day" with his chest injury and said Jefferson has a "good chance" to play vs. the Bengals on Saturday, per ESPN's Kevin Seifert. We'll track Jefferson's status throughout the week, but he can be penciled into Week 15 fantasy lineups for now. O'Connell did not announce a starting QB on Monday, but we're projecting Nick Mullens to get the nod.
