Fornite To Feature Justin Jefferson & His Feature Celebration: The Griddy
Jefferson was absolutely sensational in the 2020-21 NFL season. His stats? 88 catches for 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns. Simply remarkable.
Finding the endzone had its perks too. Jefferson would capitalize on any chance he got to celebrate, and his feature celebration was the Griddy:
