Justin Jefferson Agrees To $140 Million Contract Extension

Monday, June 3, 10:12 AM

All-Pro wide receiver Justin Jefferson has agreed to a four-year, $140 million contract extension to remain with the Minnesota Vikings, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero. The deal makes him the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL and includes $110 million in guaranteed money. The No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft is arguably one of the best players in the league, regardless of position, and he has posted 392 receptions for 5,899 yards and 30 touchdowns through his first 60 games. At just 24 years old, he has been named to three Pro Bowls and three All-Pro squads. He also won the 2022 NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award after posting 1,809 receiving yards. Jefferson is well on pace to become a future Hall of Famer, so hopefully, he can stay healthy after missing seven games last year. Although he's set to play with Sam Darnold and rookie J.J. McCarthy at quarterback in 2024, he should remain at least a mid-range WR1 in fantasy football.

Brandon Aiyuk Making News With Latest Social Media Post

Sunday, July 7, 9:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk posted a picture of a Washington Commanders' practice session on the social media platform TikTok. The wideout reportedly wants to remain in San Francisco, although he wants to be paid. However, if both sides can't reach an agreement on a new deal, Aiyuk has been vocal about his desire to play in Washington or Pittsburgh. This isn't the first time he has used social media to keep himself in the news. But considering Aiyuk amassed 1,342 receiving yards and seven touchdowns off 75 catches in 2023-24, his fantasy stock is higher than ever. It could increase even more with a move to the Steelers or Commanders, where he would likely be considered the No. 1 wideout on the depth chart.
