Now You Know: Justin Jefferson Has to Figure Things Out

Justin Jefferson is one of the names that is a constant in discussions about the best receivers in the NFL. But over the last two weeks against the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions, he has not produced like it, with only six catches for 62 yards combined in those contests.

In the latest edition of The 33rd Team’s Now You Know film breakdown series, Rich Gannon looks at some of Jefferson’s clips going against the Eagles’ Darius Slay and the Lions’ Jeff Okudah to see why Jefferson hasn’t been able to produce at the rate he usually does. Gannon says the fault isn’t entirely on Jefferson for his lack of numbers — coach Kevin O’Connell and quarterback Kirk Cousins play a part in it, too. But he also expects better play from a Pro Bowl-caliber receiver of Jefferson’s talent, and thinks Jefferson will figure things out in the weeks ahead.
