Rams' Van Jefferson learning every receiver position

Los Angeles Rams second-round rookie wide receiver Van Jefferson has been practicing at every receiver position.

What It Means:

“We want to be able to have guys that are versatile that can play all over the formation,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said. “And I think that’s one of the things we liked so much about Van, is he can certainly win isolations outside, he can work inside on option routes where he understands how to work leverages and recognize coverage contours. … And you can see, kind of like what we’ve talked about ever since we drafted him, he’s got a knack for the game. Football just makes sense to him.” Despite the praise, Josh Reynolds is expected to beat out Jefferson for the Rams' No. 3 receiver job behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Even with over 100 targets available from last season, Jefferson is unlikely to see consistent volume as a rookie.

Jefferson is the WR91 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 48.2 targets, 27.5 receptions, 336.4 yards, and 2.3 touchdowns in his rookie year.
