Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell Plays Down Prospect of Justin Jefferson Return in Week 10

Specifically, O’Connell said that it would be ‘a little aggressive’ to have Jefferson return in Week 10. All things considered, the fact that there’s even a chance that Jefferson could start this week is a good sign for him being available sooner rather than later, especially given that the worst-case scenario for Jefferson was a six-week absence at the outset of his recovery. With the Vikings right in the thick of the playoff hunt and with new life via acquisition of Josh Dobbs, there’s no reason for Minnesota to rush Jefferson back - but if he doesn’t go this week, fantasy managers can pinpoint Week 11 as a likely date for his return. In the meantime, Jordan Addison and T.J. Hockenson should continue to lead the target share for another week with the help of Josh Dobbs under center.
