Vikings’ Jefferson Only Receiver Capable of 2,000 Yards

I don’t think there will be a 2,000-yard receiver in the NFL this season. It’s just a feat that is so challenging and daunting. There are a lot of things that are in play for a receiver actually achieving something like that. 

There’s health, and there’s availability. There’s opportunity. What will the defense provide or take away as far as your skillset? As an individual, it’s tough. 

But if there was a receiver that was to eclipse that 2,000-yard season, I do believe it would be a player like Justin Jefferson. He is so electric when he gets the ball in his hands. He’s such a deep threat, and he catches almost anything and everything you throw in his direction. 

That is what it would have to take — a big-play individual, someone that can break away on the short pass and get behind the defenders on a deep pass. It would have to be a receiver that is a true focal point of what you’re trying to get done offensively.
