Minnesota had one of the top wide receiver duos in the NFL with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. The Vikings traded Diggs in the 2020 offseason, but the team ended up replacing him with arguably the best rookie of that year’s draft class.

So despite the loss of Diggs, Minnesota already has a top five wide receiver duo, according to Bleacher Report. Maurice Moton, who writes for the outlet, tabbed Jefferson and Thielen as the fifth-best wide receiver duo in the league. Here’s what Moton wrote:

“For the upcoming campaign, Jefferson and Thielen could clear the 1,100-yard mark. Quarterback Kirk Cousins may also have more incentive to show off his arm with a new offensive coordinator (Klint Kubiak) and rookie third-rounder Kellen Mond behind him on the depth chart.”

That’s a bold prediction, one that would help the Vikings quite a bit if it comes true. Minnesota needs Jefferson and Thielen to remain at their current 2020 production at least. If Cousins is more consistent at the beginning of the year and Jefferson starts every regular season game, this could be a bounce-back season for the Vikings.
