K.J. Osborn – WR

Heading into the regular season, Vikings fans were excited to see what was in store for the team’s dynamic wide receiver trio that features Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and K.J. Osborn.

We all saw the amazing performance from Justin Jefferson last week, but for whatever reason, Osborn and Thielen didn’t really provide much support as complimentary receivers against the Packers.

Thielen at least has an excuse that he’s getting older and he’s no longer the top target of Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins, but Osborn should be putting up better numbers than the three catches for 14 yards that he finished with last weekend.

Osborn has the potential to actually overtake Thielen as the team’s No. 2 receiver this season. But that’s not going to happen if he keeps playing like he did against Green Bay last week.
