Vikings To Activate Justin Jefferson From Injured Reserve On Tuesday

Tuesday, November 28, 2:21 PM

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring) will be activated from Injured Reserve to the 53-man active roster on Tuesday. Jefferson has missed each of the team's last seven games after being placed on IR after Week 5 with a hamstring injury. Minnesota is on a bye in Week 13, so his potential return could come against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14. When Jefferson is active, he's a must-start option in all leagues. His ceiling could be reduced with Joshua Dobbs, Jaren Hall, or Nick Mullen under center, but his upside outweighs the risk. T.J. Hockenson, Jordan Addison, and K.J. Osborn will likely see reduced target shares when the reigning Offensive Player of the Year returns.

Darnell Mooney Catches Two Passes In Week 12 Win

Tuesday, November 28, 11:04 AM

Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney faced another unproductive outing in Week 12, securing just two catches on three targets for a mere six yards in the team's narrow 12-10 victory over the Vikings. Despite an 81% snap share, the 26-year-old struggled to leave a mark, extending his streak to three consecutive games with less than five PPR points. Throughout the season, he has only reached double-digit fantasy points twice. Over the last three games, Mooney has managed just five catches on eight targets, diminishing his value across most fantasy formats. Despite the improved passing attack with Justin Fields at the helm, Mooney remains overshadowed by DJ Moore and Cole Kmet in the offensive hierarchy. As the Bears enter their bye week in Week 13 before facing the Lions in Week 14 who allow the seventh-most points per game to receivers Mooney's fantasy outlook remains uncertain, urging managers to reevaluate his role on their rosters.
