Jordan Addison, WR (MIN)

Could get more snaps in future

Offensive coordinator Wes Phillips said this week he thinks Addison's role will expand as the season progresses, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The first-round pick debuted as Minnesota's No. 3 receiver in a 20-17 loss to Tampa, playing 56 percent of snaps while Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn both were above 90 percent. It was enough for Addison to have a productive day, as he ran 35 routes (67 percent share) and caught four of six targets for 61 yards and a TD. Osborn had the same number of targets and a mere 3-31-0 receiving line on 43 routes, but it's nonetheless possible scheme familiarity and blocking keep him in the No. 2 role -- at least in terms of snaps -- for a portion of the season. It's also possible the Vikings promote Addison as soon as Thursday against Philadelphia or Week 3 against the Chargers.
