Rams' Van Jefferson: Shows off with 31-yard grab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson caught one of his three targets for 31 yards during Sunday's 20-17 win over Dallas.

While Jefferson only recorded the single catch, it was an impressive 31-yard reception showcasing the route running, separation and ball skills that have been attributed to the rookie throughout training camp. He played just 33 of 73 offensive snaps, which ranked fourth among Los Angeles wide receivers, but Jefferson could quickly carve out a larger role and leapfrog Josh Reynolds on the depth chart. Additionally, if Robert Woods or Cooper Kupp were ever injured, Jefferson is likely a better fit for an increased workload than Reynolds. Keep tabs on the rookie. His long-term outlook is promising.

Rams' Van Jefferson: Pushing for No. 3 job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson could see more opportunities than Josh Reynolds this season, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Rodrigue's projection of the 53-man roster suggests Jefferson -- rather than Reynolds -- will be the No. 3 receiver behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. This outcome shouldn't be fully assumed, but it's a reasonable expectation given that Reynolds mostly failed to impress in previous opportunities and Jefferson is a rookie second-round pick. Both players' roles mya not be clarified until after the Rams' Week 1 matchup with the Cowboys.

Rams' Van Jefferson: Impressing early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson has caught coach Sean McVay's eye thus far in training camp, Cameron DeSilva of USA Today reports.

In particular, McVay noted the rookie's separation skills, body control, work ethic and attention to detail in meetings. The praise shouldn't be surprising, though. Jefferson's father was a 13-year pro and now is wide receivers coach for the Jets, and the Florida alum's route running was a highlighted strength leading into the 2020 NFL Draft. Additionally, Jefferson appears to be fully recovered from the foot surgery he underwent this past March. Still, with an unprecedented offseason and no preseason games, it's difficult to project the rookie's fantasy outlook. As it stands, Jefferson should carve out a role over the course of the season while battling fourth-year receiver Josh Reynolds for playing time as the No. 3 wideout on the depth chart behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods.

Rams' Van Jefferson: Getting healthier
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson estimated that he's "90 percent healthy" from March surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. "I'm in a shoe right now, jogging in the AlterG," Jefferson added Monday. "It's going good."

At the NFL Combine in February, Jefferson underwent a physical, which revealed the injury. In the end, it didn't impact his draft standing too much, as the Rams selected the wide receiver 57th overall. Jefferson split his college career between Mississippi and Florida, averaging 12.3 yards per catch and 8.0 yards per target while scoring 16 touchdowns in 45 games. Look for the 23-year-old to provide some relief in the receiving corps after L.A. dealt Brandin Cooks this offseason, but the group still figures to be lead by Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Josh Reynolds.
