3. Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Jefferson had a record-setting rookie season, with 88 catches for 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns. But he didn’t start or play more than 70 percent of the snaps until Week 3, and from there through Week 16 he was WR4 in full PPR (WR3 in standard scoring).
In 14 games from Week 3-17, Jefferson had at last eight targets nine times. He scored and/or had more than 70 yards in eight of those, with two more games reaching one or both of those marks with five targets.
Fantasy managers who saw Jefferson’s Week 3 breakout and added him without a second thought were handsomely rewarded. The future is very bright for this guy.
