Justin Jefferson is dominant against man coverage

Every so often, there is a generational talent that comes along at the wide receiver position. From Jerry Rice to Megatron, there are numerous examples of just that. The Minnesota Vikings have been lucky enough to have two of them.

Randy Moss was a player that I credit for kickstarting the passing renaissance in the NFL and Justin Jefferson is emerging as that next talent in the NFL.

He leads the NFL in both receptions (123) and receiving yards (1,756) and per Next Gen Stats, Jefferson has the most yards against man coverage.

It’s really impressive the success that Jefferson has had in man coverage this season, especially with the issues that the Vikings offensive line has had this season and how often Jefferson sees double teams.

Needless to say, this is another stat that shows Jefferson is the best receiver in the National Football League.
