Jefferson should begin the season as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson. Jefferson's best format is in Best Ball leagues, where you don't have to decide when to start him. He had six games with at least 13.8 PPR Fantasy points last year, but it wasn't easy to predict when. In a standard redraft league, Jefferson shouldn't be drafted before Round 12.
Jefferson brought in four of eight targets for 23 yards during the Rams' 23-20 win over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday. The speedster came into the game still somewhat nursing a knee injury he'd suffered in the NFC Championship Game, and perhaps that played a role in his limited production even after Odell Beckham left the game for good in the second quarter due to his own knee issue. Jefferson was also the target on Matthew Stafford's first interception late in the first half, a ball that the Bengals' Jessie Bates came down with in the end zone. However, Jefferson's reception total actually tied him for second on the Rams for the night, and it qualified as his highest since Week 17. Looking ahead to the 2022 season, Jefferson will be aiming to build on the significant step forward he took during a sophomore campaign that saw him contribute a 50-802-6 line across 17 games.
Jefferson (knee) was listed as a full participant at Thursday's practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. This marks Jefferson's first uncapped session since aggravating a knee injury during the Rams' win in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers on Jan. 30. Now that he's set for Sunday's Super Bowl LVI matchup with the Bengals, he'll settle in behind Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham as L.A.'s third wide receiver, which has amounted to a 25-394-3 line on 45 targets in 10 contests (including playoffs) with Beckham in the fold.
Jefferson (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's walk-through practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Jefferson so far has been listed as limited on three of the Rams' four injury reports in advance of Super Bowl LVI (he sat out last Friday's session). A knee injury is to blame and also affected his practice reps ahead of the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 30. How Jefferson fares in practice Thursday and Friday likely will determine whether or not he has a designation for Sunday's game versus the Bengals.
Jefferson (knee) didn't practice Friday, Tyler Dragon of USA Today reports. It might seem like a step back after he was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but the Rams were cautious at Friday's practice and held out seven players. Assuming he returns next week, Jefferson will enter the Super Bowl as the team's No. 3 receiver -- a role that hasn't yielded much since mid-December.
Jefferson (knee) was limited at Thursday's walkthrough, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Jefferson tended to a knee injury before and during the Rams' win in the NFC Championship Game versus the 49ers this past Sunday. The result in that contest was two catches (on five targets) for nine yards, and he's kicked off this week with back-to-back limited listings on the practice report. With more than a week to go ahead of a Super Bowl matchup against the Bengals on Sunday, Feb. 13, Jefferson doesn't appear to be in too much danger of ceding his spot as L.A.'s third wide receiver.
