Justin Jefferson (ankle) good to go for Vikings against Panthers

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson has been removed from the final injury report for Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

What It Means:

Jefferson sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle designation, but the issue will not keep him out for Week 6. Adam Thielen (foot) has also been cleared to play. Jefferson had a season-high 124 receiving yards last week and he's averaging 92.4 yards per game for the season, sixth-most in the NFL.

Jefferson is the WR6 in numberFire's weekly fantasy rankings and we project him for 13.7 FanDuel points on 8.5 targets. Excluding Thursday's results, the Panthers are allowing the sixth-fewest FanDuel points per game to the wide receiver position this season and their pass defense is fourth-best in the league, per our efficiency metrics.
