  • Falcons' Van Jefferson: No targets in win

    Jefferson didn't record a target during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.

    Despite playing his most offensive snaps (33) since Week 9, Jefferson failed to record a target for the second time this season and the first time as a Falcon. Over his last four appearances, Jefferson has hauled in just two of seven targets for 27 yards. Atlanta's passing attack struggles to keep even Drake London and Kyle Pitts relevant in fantasy, so Jefferson's value remains limited, at best.

  • Falcons' Van Jefferson: Catches one pass in win

    Jefferson caught one of two passes for 13 yards during Sunday's 24-15 win over the Saints.

    Jefferson was one of six Falcons to catch a pass, but only Drake London (seven) and Bijan Robinson (six) saw more than two targets as Desmond Ridder attempted just 21 passes. In six games with Atlanta, Jefferson has caught six of 16 targets for 56 yards. He's carved out a depth role with his new squad, but given the Falcons' passing struggles, Jefferson doesn't need to be rostered in standard leagues.

  • Falcons' Van Jefferson: Held without a catch

    Jefferson failed to secure his only target during Sunday's 25-23 loss to Arizona.

    Jefferson played 26 offensive snaps, the third most behind Drake London (55) and KhaDarel Hodge (28). However, Atlanta's passing attack was abysmal, as Taylor Heinicke (hamstring) and Desmond Ridder combined to throw for just 94 yards during the loss.

  • Falcons' Van Jefferson: Struggles to make positive impact

    Jefferson caught one of four targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Vikings.

    With Drake London (groin) sidelined and Mack Hollins (ankle) leaving the contest early, Jefferson played the second-most offensive snaps (45) among Atlanta's wideouts. However, the newcomer failed to make a positive impression on his new team for a fourth straight week. Jefferson was consistently involved in the passing attack but secured just one reception. He also committed a penalty that wiped out a fourth-down conversion and got called for a personal foul after the Falcons' go-ahead touchdown that gave the Vikings good field position on their final drive. Between drops and penalties in recent weeks, Jefferson isn't trending in the right direction, but he'll likely keep getting opportunities if London and Hollins remain out moving forward.
