News: 3 days agoJefferson caught one of two passes for 13 yards during Sunday's 24-15 win over the Saints.
Spin: Jefferson was one of six Falcons to catch a pass, but only Drake London (seven) and Bijan Robinson (six) saw more than two targets as Desmond Ridder attempted just 21 passes. In six games with Atlanta, Jefferson has caught six of 16 targets for 56 yards. He's carved out a depth role with his new squad, but given the Falcons' passing struggles, Jefferson doesn't need to be rostered in standard leagues.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jefferson is entering his fourth season with the Rams having yet to deliver a top-35 fantasy campaign. The 2020 second-round pick made a leap back in 2021 (50-802-6 receiving line and a 49th-place finish in fantasy PPG), but he missed six games and was otherwise a nonfactor while working as situational deep threat (16.3 aDOT) last season. Jefferson has a shot at No. 2 WR duties this season in an offense that figures to be better with a healthy Matthew Stafford under center. Perhaps that will be enough to get Jefferson into the deep league flex discussion some weeks, but the 26-year-old has given us little reason to buy into him as a late round flier.
