K.J. Osborn

The Minnesota Vikings saw Jordan Addison leave the game early against the Lions due to an ankle injury and the severity at this point is unknown. If he is to miss time, then K.J. Osborn is a good player to target on the waiver wire this week.

Osborn finished the game against the Lions with five receptions, 95 yards and one touchdown. He fits in perfectly as the number two wide receiver as Justin Jefferson draws the attention of the opposing defense.

This week, the Vikings are playing the Green Bay Packers and this is a great matchup for Osborn. The Packers have allowed the third most points to wide receivers over the past four weeks and K.J. Osborn could have a similar stat line in Week 17 to what he had against the Lions.
