The Vikings selected USC WR Jordan Addison with the 23rd pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. broke out as an 18-year-old true freshman at Pittsburgh and then exploded for 1,593 yards and 17 TDs on 100 catches as a sophomore, winning the 2021 Biletnikoff Award as the top receiver in college football. Addison transferred to USC last offseason to play with HC Lincoln Riley and QB Caleb Williams. His stat line wasn’t as spectacular as the previous year, but he still averaged a strong 5.4 catches, 79.5 yards, and 0.73 TDs per game, leading the Trojans in all three categories. Addison’s tape shows a refined route runner and explosive mover who can win at all levels of the field. The concern? He’s just 5’11 and 173 pounds. That weight lands him in the third percentile among WRs invited to the Combine since 1999 and would make him a bit of an outlier if he develops into a high-end fantasy producer. Over the past ten seasons, there have only been four WRs under 180 pounds to top 1,000 receiving yards (DeSean Jackson, John Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Darnell Mooney). Addison projects as an instant starter alongside Justin Jefferson. The rookie should absorb the 107 targets left behind by Adam Thielen.
For the second straight week, Vikings WR Jordan Addison paid the fantasy bills with a long TD. It was a 39-yarder on busted coverage in Week 1. On Thursday night vs. the Eagles, Addison beat CB Josh Jobe on a deep route and then shook his tackle attempt for a 62-yard TD. The rookie has now tallied 133 yards and two TDs on seven catches and 11 targets through the first two games of the season. That's 19.0 yards per catch and 12.1 yards per target -- completely unsustainable numbers. Addison's volume should grow going forward, though. He continued to trail WR K.J. Osborn in snaps and routes tonight. But that shouldn't last much longer, especially after Osborn committed two ugly drops in the loss to the Eagles. Consider Addison a WR3 for now. He has the potential to flirt with WR2 value in this pass-heavy Vikings offense as soon as he becomes something close to an every-snap player.
Vikings WR Jordan Addison scored his first career TD in Week 1. Kirk Cousins found the rookie deep for a 39-yard score on 3rd and 11. Addison’s 6 targets matched K.J. Osborn’s total and was predictably behind Justin Jefferson’s tally (12). Still, you have to view Addison’s debut as a success. The 21-year-old should prove useful as a matchup-based WR3 going forward. We expect the Vikings to remain a pass heavy squad in 2023.
Vikings WR Jordan Addison (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday and appeared to be a full-go, according to The Star Tribune's Andrew Krammer. If Addison hasn't been fully cleared yet, he's close. The rookie will be ready to go in plenty of time for Week 1. Consider his fantasy value unaffected by the concussion.
Vikings WR Jordan Addison is in concussion protocol, HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday. Addison has experienced "very light symptoms," per Stefanski, but could be cleared as soon as Monday. This shouldn't impact Addison's availability for the start of the regular season, but we'll let you know when he gets back on the field.
Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell said Wednesday that WR Jordan Addison is "off to a good start" in training camp. The rookie missed much of the spring with an undisclosed injury but seems to have put that behind him. "What he's done on the grass so far has confirmed a lot of the things that we expected from Jordan," O'Connell added. "He's also done some things instinctively just playing football within the confines of our scheme... he's showing a willingness to be a blocker, he's showing understanding of how he fits within the scheme and the rhythm and timing of the QB in the pass game. I'm really excited about him." Addison remains a good bet to open the season as Minnesota's No. 2 WR, giving him immediate WR3 potential in fantasy lineups.
