SCOTT PIANOWSKI: Justin Jefferson has been a star in his brief NFL career for two seasons, but things are definitely pointing upward as the Vikings have finally upgraded. They've hired an offensive coach in Kevin O'Connell, and I think Justin Jefferson will finally start to get some of those easier targets, some of those red zone targets.
This guy could be better than what we've already seen, and he's been a superstar for two seasons. What if his route tree expands? Kirk Cousins is a plus quarterback, and the Minnesota passing tree is very narrow. I think Jefferson has a great chance to be the top fantasy receiver this year, and I'll consider him as early as third or fourth overall in a standard draft. He goes into August as my wide receiver two on my board.
