Fantasy Football Week 12 Wide Receiver Rankings: Any reason to be concerned about Justin Jefferson?

After losing Cooper Kupp to what could have ended with season-ending ankle surgery last week, the last thing we need is to see another big-name wide receiver deal with the injury. So, I have to admit that I’m just a little worried about Justin Jefferson as we approach week 12.

Jefferson is battling a toe injury, which is a sprain in one of the big toe joints, and it’s one of the most frustrating injuries a football player can deal with. Jefferson was limited in practice last week but managed to take 79% of the Vikings’ offensive snaps in Week 11 despite keeping their players on the bench for the fourth quarter – Jefferson played every snap in the starting lineup.

But Jefferson barely survived one of his worst games of the season, catching three passes for 33 yards on a season-high five targets. Of course, it might not have been an injury—the Cowboys’ defense dominated Week 11, putting constant pressure on Kirk Cousins, and they clearly made removing Jefferson the centerpiece of their game plan. However, other teams certainly had similar game plans and none other than the Eagles in Week 3 were able to erase Jefferson in this way, so it’s fair to wonder if Jefferson could have been slowed down by the injury, even if he was able to play. through it.

I certainly don’t panic about Jefferson. Bad games sometimes just happen, and in this case, the game went awry for the Vikings so early that perhaps Jefferson never had a chance. But toe injuries tend to persist and can certainly slow down even elite athletes. I’m not downgrading Jefferson yet, but his performance will be one of the highlights that I’ll be following in Week 12.
