The Vikings might not have the same receiving depth as some other teams, but they have the best wide receiver in the NFC North by a long way: Justin Jefferson.

Jefferson only turned 24 this week, but he is already a three-time All-Pro, three-time Pro Bowler, the 2022 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and has 4,825 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Minnesota lost Adam Thielen in free agency, replacing him with first-round pick Jordan Addison.

The Vikings have an All-Pro talent at WR1 and a first-round pick playing alongside him, but they lack depth at receiver. All three of their division rivals have better receiving depth.

But Minnesota ranks first in large part due to Jefferson. No receiver in the division comes close to his level. You could make a case that Jefferson is the best in the NFL, although former Packers legend Davante Adams may have something to say about that.

Jefferson is a superstar and the Vikings have a solid top three at wide receiver, although depth is their only concern.
