  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Non-factor in loss

    Osborn caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 34-26 loss to the 49ers.

    Osborn played 55 percent of the team's offensive snaps (30 of 55), but he was once again held to just one catch, as Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson dominated Kirk Cousins' attention. Even with the Vikings playing from behind for the majority of Sunday's loss, Osborn couldn't crack fantasy relevance. The 2020 fifth-round pick's steady playing time should keep him in the conversation, but his lack of production over the past four weeks (three catches for 44 yards) makes him a risky fantasy play in any format.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Just one reception Sunday

    Osborn had one reception for 19 yards on four targets in Sunday's 34-32 win over Green Bay.

    Osborn played on 52 percent of the offense's snaps (36 of 69) and went out for a route on 23 plays. He's been getting about the same playing time as earlier in the season as the third receiver, but the passing game has narrowed on the duo of Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson, with Tyler Conklin emerging as the distant third option. Osborn's steady playing time could make him more of a factor if the Vikings are playing from far behind, but it's hard to count on any production otherwise.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: No receptions Sunday

    Osborn did not have a reception or carry in Sunday's 27-20 win at the Chargers but did have one target.

    Osborn played on 51 percent of the offense's snaps and went out for a route on 26 of his 41 snaps. While he's getting about the same playing time as earlier in the year, he has just four targets and one reception in his last three games. Tyler Conklin has become the third option in the passing game, and the duo of Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson have dominated the target share as much as ever, leaving Osborn on the outside for now. Osborn's steady playing time could make him more of a factor in shootouts.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Just one reception Sunday

    Osborn had one reception for 20 yards on two targets in Sunday's 34-31 overtime loss at Baltimore.

    Osborn played a season-low 26 (47 percent) of the team's snaps on offense. He has just five targets combined the last two games but still has a firm hold on the third receiver role.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Just two receptions Sunday

    Osborn had two receptions for 10 yards on three targets in Sunday's 20-16 loss to Dallas.

    Osborn played on 38 of the offense's 66 snaps -- about his season average -- but had his fewest targets since Week 3. Although Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen dominate the targets, Osborn remains a viable fantasy option in deeper formats. Osborn continues to get a steady workload and has a firm grasp on the third receiver role, even if the results were not there against Dallas.
