Van Jefferson, WR (LAR)

Works more underneath

Jefferson caught six passes for 41 yards and one touchdown on eight targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

To begin the year Jefferson operated as the Rams' by-default deep threat while Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods worked more underneath, but in light of Woods' season-ending injury and the addition of the more big-play oriented Odell Beckham it makes sense for the Rams to give Jefferson the old Woods role while Beckham takes up more of the downfield responsibilities. If that continues going forward then it could allow Jefferson to draw targets and thus receptions more reliably than he did to begin the year, even if he's generally regarded as the WR3 behind Kupp and Beckham.
