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

    Osborn had two receptions for 17 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over the Jets. Osborn continues to come up with big plays in key spots but just isn't getting much volume after the acquisition of T.J. Hockenson. Osborn has just nine receptions on 21 targets for 77 yards over his last five games.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Target total dips to three

    Osborn caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Cowboys. Osborn's volume has oscillated from two targets in Week 9 to 11 last week before dropping back down to three. As long as all three of Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and T.J. Hockenson are healthy, Osborn will have difficulty carving out a consistent role as Kirk Cousins' fourth option in the passing game.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Gets 11 targets in win

    Osborn had four receptions for 35 yards on 11 targets and one carry for two yards in Sunday's overtime win at Buffalo. Osborn didn't have a reception and had just two targets last week as it looked like his role would significantly decrease after the acquisition of T.J. Hockenson. However, a week later, Osborn was frequently targeted by Kirk Cousins and made several big plays. Hockensen has replaced him as the third option in the passing offense (16 receptions the past two games), but at least Osborn still looks to have a role.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: No receptions in win

    Osborn did not have a reception on two targets in Sunday's win at Washington. Osborn played on 53 of the offense's 66 snaps and went out on 39 routes. He got about the usual playing time, but he had a season low in targets, and it was his first game this season without a catch. The acquisition of T.J. Hockenson (nine receptions) looks to have supplanted Osborn as the third option in the passing offense.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Secures key touchdown grab in win

    Osborn brought in two of five targets for eight yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 34-26 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. The UM product's five-yard scoring grab with 8:36 remaining put the Vikings ahead for good and served as his second end-zone trip of the campaign. Osborn could be in position for more targets in the short term if the injuries sustained by Adam Thielen (knee) and Irv Smith (ankle) in Sunday's contest linger into a Week 9 road matchup against the Commanders.

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

    Osborn had three receptions for 18 yards in Sunday's win at Miami. Osborn played on a season-low 58 percent of the offense's snaps but still had five targets. Minnesota generated just 175 yards passing as the offense sputtered early. Unfortunately, the focus on top targets Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen rarely leaves much for the third receiver in the Vikings offense.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Five receptions in win

    Osborn had five receptions for 41 yards on five targets in Sunday's win over Chicago. Osborn has seen a slight increase in playing time the last two weeks to 85 percent of offensive snaps each game. He's had more than four targets just twice in five games. However, his increased playing time is a positive sign, even with the Vikings failing to target the third receiver significantly more than the past few years.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    I view Osborn the same way I do guys like Josh Palmer and Tyler Boyd that he's a great No. 3 receiver who could emerge as a Fantasy asset if an injury occurs. And, on occasion, he can be helpful in deeper leagues. That happened in Week 3 against Detroit when he had five catches for 73 yards and a touchdown on eight targets, and maybe he can build on that performance heading into Week 4 against the Saints. I have Osborn stashed in several leagues, and he is worth adding if you have an open roster spot for 1 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Game-winning score against Lions

    Osborn recorded five receptions on eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Lions. Justin Jefferson got a lot of attention from the Detroit defense, which opened up the field for some of the Vikings' peripheral receiving options. Osborn was among them, and he recorded a pair of 28-yard receptions -- the latter of which proved to be the game-winning touchdown. Osborn will continue to produce inconsistently as the third option -- at best -- in Minnesota's passing attack, but he has shown the ability to contribute in a significant way in each of the last two seasons.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Just two targets Monday

    Osborn had two receptions for 25 yards on two targets in Monday's loss at Philadelphia. It's not a good sign for Osborn's role in the offense that he was targeted just twice in a game where the Vikings were forced to air it out after falling behind early (Kirk Cousins had 46 passing attempts). Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson had 19 combined targets and Irv Smith had eight targets, so while Osborn was on the field for 47 of the offense's 61 snaps and ran 42 routes, he wasn't really in the game plan. Despite a new head coach in Minnesota, the No. 3 receiver continues to be an afterthought in the offense.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Three receptions in season opener

    Osborn had three receptions for 14 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Green Bay. Osborn played on 42 of the offense's 62 snaps. Despite talk of the Vikings using more three-receiver sets this season, he saw about the same usage as last season even with no fourth or fifth receiver getting snaps on offense. He was tied for the third-most targets and should have bigger games, but the bulk of targets in the offense still go to Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    Osborn is like Boyd in that he's a handcuff who can also help you in deeper leagues. Osborn will be the No. 3 receiver in Minnesota behind Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, but Osborn stepped up last season when Thielen battled injuries. Osborn had eight games last year with at least five targets, and he scored at least 14 PPR points in seven of them. The Vikings have said all offseason that Osborn will have a bigger role this year, and he could emerge as a No. 3 receiver in deep, three-receiver leagues. He's worth at least 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Doesn't suit up Saturday

    Osborn didn't play in Saturday's preseason defeat to the 49ers, Lindsey Young of the Vikings' official site reports. Osborn joined the Vikings' top two wide receivers Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen on the sideline. While Jefferson and Thielen also didn't suit up in preseason Week 1 at Las Vegas, Osborn did play, logging eight offensive snaps and catching his only target for 10 yards. The third-year pro has settled into the third receiver role in Minnesota's offense, which may yield more fruit this year under new coach Kevin O'Connell.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Leader in No. 3 WR battle

    Osborn is drawing raves early in training camp and has become the clear leader for the No. 3 receiver role, the Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's been really, really good," head coach Kevin O'Connell said. "There's no other way to describe it early on in camp." Osborn has been primarily used in the slot during practices, which feature more three-receiver sets under the new coaching staff. Osborn recorded a 50-655-7 stat line on 82 targets over 17 contests last season, but he could see his usage increase if the Vikings move away from a run-first offense. Albert Wilson, Bisi Johnson, Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Dan Chisena and Jalen Nailor are also competing for the No. 3 role, but even the No. 4 role could have value this season for the Vikings in the new offense.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Good to go for training camp

    Osborn, who missed time during spring practices with an undisclosed injury, is back in action for training camp, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Osborn, who recorded a 50-655-7 stat line on 82 targets over 17 contests last season, has noted that his goal is to be a "complete" target for quarterback Kirk Cousins in a Vikings offense that could move receivers around more this season. As things stand, Osborn gives the team a legit third option at the wide receiver position behind Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Sidelined to start minicamp

    Osborn didn't practice during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp due to an undisclosed injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The severity of Osborn's injury is unclear, but he joined fellow wideout Ihmir Smith-Marsette (leg) as a non-participant Tuesday. Despite their offseason injuries, Osborn and Smith Marsette are slated to be the top two receivers behind Minnesota's dynamic duo of Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Four targets in Week 18

    Osborn caught one of four targets for 21 yards and one score during Week 18's 31-17 win over the Bears. Osborn finished the 2021 campaign with 50 receptions for 655 yards and seven touchdowns. He started the season off hot with 12 receptions for 167 yards through the first two weeks, but he took a backseat as Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen demanded the majority of Kirk Cousins' attention. However, after Thielen went down with a high-ankle sprain in Week 13, Osborn once again stepped up his game. Over the last six contests of the year, Osborn totaled 19 catches for 290 yards and five touchdowns -- including one in each of the Vikings' last three games.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Hits pay dirt in loss

    Osborn had three receptions (five targets) for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Green Bay. Osborn stepped into the starting lineup in place of Adam Thielen (ankle) as expected, and he delivered a strong fantasy performance with a second-half touchdown. The 24-year-old was already seeing his role increase prior to Thielen's season-ending injury last week, scoring four of his six touchdowns over the last five weeks. The Vikings will take on the Bears in a meaningless game (from a playoffs standpoint), but Osborn and the rest of Minnesota's offensive options would benefit if Kirk Cousins (illness) is able to return.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Locked in for No. 2 receiver spot

    Osborn is expected to serve as Minnesota's No. 2 receiver from the remainder of the season after the Vikings placed Adam Thielen (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Osborn had already held the No. 2 role for most of the past four games with Thielen either out or exiting early due to the left ankle sprain. The second-year wideout has a four-game streak with at least three catches and a 79 percent snap share, averaging 3.8 receptions for 54.8 yards on 6.5 targets in that time while scoring three times. He also put up decent numbers in September as Minnesota's No. 3 receiver, but Osborn was unable to sustain the volume when Thielen and Jefferson were both simultaneously healthy. While he may be a distant second to Jefferson now, Osborn appears solidly ahead of Dede Westbrook, Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Dan Chisena as the Vikings prepare to close out their season against the Packers (Week 17) and Bears (Week 18).
