Target total dips to three
Osborn caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Cowboys.
Osborn's volume has oscillated from two targets in Week 9 to 11 last week before dropping back down to three. As long as all three of Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and T.J. Hockenson are healthy, Osborn will have difficulty carving out a consistent role as Kirk Cousins' fourth option in the passing game.
