For the third week in a row, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson combined for a pair of big performances on the field. Together, they had almost 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help push the Minnesota Vikings to a win over the Jaguars. This week, they have another enticing matchup for fantasy football with a game against the Buccaneers.
Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings WRs Adam Thielen, Justin Jefferson
Jefferson was balling out last week with nine catches on 12 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown. Thielen had eight catches on 11 targets for 75 yards and a score of his own. That was the third game in a row where these two combined for at least two touchdowns and heaping helping of yardage (Thielen missed Week 12).
Receivers are tearing up the Bucs defense lately. Tyreek Hill had 269 yards and three touchdowns against them last week. The game before that, the Rams’ top two receivers combined for 275 yards and a touchdown. I’d give Jefferson a bit of an edge over Thielen, but both are solid WR1 options this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson.
