Fantasy Football Takes a Backseat for Justin Jefferson as He Focuses on His Health

On November 21, 2023, star wide receiver Justin Jefferson made it clear that he will not return to the Minnesota Vikings until he is fully healthy, despite pleas from fantasy football managers for him to play. Jefferson emphasized that his health is more important than the outcome of fantasy games and that he will not be swayed by messages from fans asking him to return.

The Vikings coach, Kevin O’Connell, noted that the team was ramping up Jefferson’s recovery and suggested that he might not play in the upcoming Monday night game against the Chicago Bears in order to take advantage of the bye week that follows. Since Jefferson’s 21-day practice window opened on November 8, joining the team could give him a total of eight weeks off if he does not return until the December 10 game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

O’Connell stressed the importance of being smart and prioritizing Jefferson’s long-term career, stating that the player means a great deal to the organization beyond just a few games. ESPN reporter Kevin Seifert contributed to the report.
