Justin Jefferson To Return from IR Week 14
7 months ago

Justin Jefferson is set to return for the Vikings in Week 14, when they face the Raiders at Allegiant stadium in Las Vegas.

Good news for Vikings fans and fantasy managers: Jefferson, a full participant in practice throughout the week, is set to play on Sunday after being absent from the injury report on Friday. This marks his return from a lengthy stint on IR due to a hamstring injury in week 5. The timing is crucial as the Vikings, currently at 6-6, navigate the competitive NFC wild card race.

 

Jefferson’s earlier performances showcased his elite status, averaging 10 targets, 7.2 receptions, 114 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns per game in the five games before his injury, with Kirk Cousins as the quarterback. Although he now pairs up with the recently acquired QB Joshua Dobbs, Jefferson enters the game ranked as the WR7 this week. Despite coming off an injury, Jefferson remains an elite wide receiver option. There’s no need to hesitate – confidently start him this week.
