Viking No.1

K.J. Osborn - WR

While Jordan Addison and T.J. Hockenson are getting their love for the great games they played on Sunday, it was actually K.J. Osborn who led the team in receiving yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Osborn put together his best performance of the season by far against Green Bay, and though he didn't score a touchdown like his receiving counterparts, his contributions to the team's victory can't go unnoticed.

Osborn secured 8 of his 10 targets and turned that into 99 yards, helping move Minnesota downfield and picking up big first downs when the team needed him most. Osborn more than doubled his previous season high of 49 yards, and he showed his proven knack to fight for yards and keep the chains moving.

Though Osborn has had somewhat of a disappointing season this year, there is no denying that he is always giving his best effort on the field. His intense effort paid off in Week 8 against the Packers with a massive outing.
