Racks up 124 yards
Jefferson had seven receptions (eight targets) for 124 yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Lions.
Jefferson was unable to extend his touchdown streak to four games, but he still posted a strong fantasy line while leading the Vikings in total receiving yards. The 22-year-old continues to evolve into a true No. 1 wideout, rewarding fantasy managers who bet on his ascension through five games. Next week's opponent, the Carolina Panthers, will provide a tougher challenge than the Lions, but they also are dealing with injuries to their secondary. Regardless, Jefferson is a must-start asset in any matchup.
