Jefferson: I’ll soon be NFL’s best

Justin Jefferson has made an impressive NFL start

Davante Adams is the best wide receiver

The NFL season starts soon and when it comes to wide receivers, Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson believes he is not quite the best yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

Jefferson has already established himself as one of the NFL’s best after just two seasons. He praised Davante Adams as the league’s top receiver but added that he’s close to fulfilling that ambitions.

“I’ll say after this year I’ll be the best receiver in the NFL,” Jefferson told Complex. “I definitely have to give it to Davante Adams as of now, him being so crazy and dynamic on the field. His route running is crazy, so I definitely have to give it to him right now, but I’m pretty sure after this year, it’s going to be me.”

Jefferson enjoyed a record-breaking start. He finished with a rookie-record 1,400 receiving yards in 2020 - a mark surpassed last season by former LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase’s 1,455. Jefferson’s 3,016 career receiving yards are the most in league history for any player in his first two seasons.

He believes if he continues to improve this campaign he’ll reign supreme. “I think I have to do it three years in a row for everybody to believe so,” Jefferson said. “Some people don’t think that after two years you deserve to be at the top of the league. And then me, I feel like I’m going to surpass 1600 yards too. So I think that I’ll become the best receiver after this year.”
