Justin Jefferson Day-to-Day with Chest Injury Suffered in Week 14

This is just about the best news fantasy managers could get given the nature of the injury on the field and the fact that he needed to be transported to the hospital. A day-to-day designation absolutely leaves the door open for a Week 15 return for Jefferson, but fantasy managers shouldn’t count their eggs before they hatch with this situation, especially in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Minnesota takes on the Bengals on Saturday afternoon, not Sunday, which shortens the week for the Vikings - and more importantly, shortens the rest time for Jefferson as he recovers from his injury. The bottom line is that Jefferson, at the very least, has a realistic chance to return for the fantasy playoffs in Week 15 –something that not many would have anticipated after seeing the hit he took this past Sunday at game speed. Have a backup plan ready, but monitor Jefferson’s status throughout the week.
