Injury WR still undergoing tests

Kevin O’Connell is saying that Justin Jefferson is still going through tests on the hamstring. Said Jefferson is “down” today given his competitiveness and that the team will have to make sure it protects him “from himself.” (ESPN.com – Kevin Seifert)

Nerdy Football Analysis: With O’Connell already invoking the “protecting him from himself” coachspeak, fantasy managers should prepare for Jefferson to miss at least one game and as many as three if it is a mild strain. For what it is worth, Jefferson has yet to miss a game in his four-year career. If Jefferson is forced to sit in Week 6 against the Bears, expect Jordan Addison to perform at a high-end WR2 level and K.J. Osborn to be worth starting in fantasy. T.J. Hockenson could also be more of a target hog than he already is.
