Player No. 5
K.J. Osborn - WR
As each week progresses in Minnesota, it has become more apparent that rookie Jordan Addison has leaped ahead of K.J. Osborn in the pecking order.
This was to be expected, as Addison was drafted to be the Robin to Justin Jefferson's Batman. It may have happened a lot faster than expected, but Addison has already shown to be just as advertised when he left college.
Osborn is a good receiver; he showed that off last season, but he has become obsolete in the Vikings' offense, which features two elite receiving threats (T.J. Hockenson and Jefferson) and an emerging elite receiver with Addison.
The Vikings also have some solid receiving options on the roster and the practice squad, making Osborn the apparent choice to be sent out. He actually has game tape for teams to watch, unlike the other receivers behind him, making him a more accessible piece to move.
There is no rush to get Osborn out the door, so it isn't probable that he gets dealt. But if a receiver-needy team comes calling, Minnesota should be answering.
