    Vikings' Justin Jefferson: Sets record with 133 yards

    Justin Jefferson secured nine of 12 targets for 133 yards during Sunday's 37-35 win against Detroit.Jefferson attracted double the targets of Minnesota's second-busiest option Sunday, amassing his seventh 100-yard receiving day of the campaign and setting a new NFL record for receiving yards by a rookie in the process. The 21-year-old went without a TD catch in the season finale, though he finished with a total of seven scores on the year. Having also posted 88 catches and an even 1,400 yards, Jefferson secured an NFC Pro Bowl nod in his debut season. Adam Thielen remains under contract with the Minnesota Vikings through 2024, as he and Jefferson continue to pose a formidable duo atop Minnesota's receiving corps. It's notable that the rookie out-targeted Thielen in five consecutive mutual appearances to end the season.

    Vikings' Justin Jefferson: Pair of scoring grabs in win

    Justin Jefferson brought in seven of 13 targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Minnesota Vikings' 28-27 win over the Panthers on Sunday.As expected, Jefferson saw a sizable workload with Adam Thielen (reserve/COVID-19) sidelined for the contest. Jefferson easily paced the Vikings in targets while also drawing even with multiple teammates for the team lead in receptions. The rookie's pair of touchdown grabs -- from 12 and 10 yards in the first and fourth quarter, respectively -- pushed his season total to six, half of which have come in the last pair of games. Jefferson could be in for another busy day in a Week 13 matchup against the hapless Jaguars secondary, irrespective of whether Thielen is available in that game.

    Vikings' Justin Jefferson: Elevates to No. 1 WR spot

    Justin Jefferson is slotted in as Minnesota's No. 1 wide receiver for Week 12 with Adam Thielen remaining on the reserve/COVID-19 list.Thielen's status seemed to be up in the air for Sunday's matchup against Carolina after he logged conflicting results on COVID-19 screenings during the practice week. The veteran was unable to gain clearance for kickoff, opening the door for Jefferson to potentially garner a massive target share Week 12. The rookie out of LSU sits with 45 receptions, 848 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the 2020 campaign, amassing that production via a workload of 5.9 targets per game. Carolina has been respectable in allowing 7.8 yards per target to opposing WRs this season (eighth best), and the Panthers are one of just 12 teams to have held the position to single digits in receiving TDs (nine).

Jefferson could see extra targets if Thielen doesn't play, but the rookie might also draw more attention from the opposing defense.
