Vikings player to be excited about No. 1

Justin Jefferson, wide receiver

Let's be honest, there isn't a more exciting player on the Minnesota Vikings roster than wide receiver Justin Jefferson. Even if you're not feeling great about the roster as a whole, games are worth watching just to see what the dynamic pass catcher can do.

Jefferson will be playing on his fifth-year option during the 2024 NFL season unless a long-term extension can be worked out before then. Either way, the former Offensive Player of the Year should be in the lineup.

Wild speculation is being thrown around about the possibility of trading Justin Jefferson, but there is no substance to those rumblings quite yet. Although a player of his caliber could fetch quite a haul in a trade, Jefferson is the kind a player that a team can build around.

Despite missing seven games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2023, Justin Jefferson accumulated 1,074 receiving yards thanks to his ability to create separation, make spectacular catches in traffic, and pick up yards after the catch. Keep an eye on Jefferson in 2024.
