Fans did doubt if Jefferson could replace Diggs, but he hasn’t had any trouble so far. He currently has 762 receiving yards through only 10 games.
Could Jefferson beat Adam Thielen to being the number 1 receiver?
Jefferson has done his part but he won’t replace Adam Thielen anytime soon. Thielen does however have 200 fewer receiving yards than the rookie. But Thielen has been the more reliable receiver for quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Thielen has 42 receptions and most importantly 9 touchdowns, being most effective in the endzone. He has also helped mainly at the shorter more crucial plays such as at 3rd downs.
