Lock: Justin Jefferson – WR

If there is one player from the Minnesota Vikings that needs to be part of the Pro Bowl more than any other, it’s Justin Jefferson. No player for the team has been as high-octane as him and he is making a name for himself in his second year following his record-breaking rookie campaign.

Entering Week 12, Jefferson is fourth in receiving yards. Strangely enough, all four of the top yardage WRs are from the NFC, with Cooper Kupp of the Rams, Deebo Samuel of the 49ers, and Davante Adams of the Packers holding down the top three spots.

Jefferson is known for his explosive plays. He is tied for first in the NFL in receptions of 20 yards or more and averages 15 yards His stats are even more impressive when you consider that Minnesota has already had their bye week.

There is no doubt that No. 18 will be voted into the Pro Bowl and it would be absolutely shocking if he weren’t part of the NFL’s version of an All-Star Game because he would bring so much excitement and energy to the game.
