Now, you’re probably asking yourself, “Wait, Adam Thielen plays in the slot. Isn’t Justin Jefferson a slot receiver?”

Not so fast, says Liz. While his floor might be Tyler Boyd (another slot receiver), Liz thinks Jefferson’s ceiling is Keenan Allen, who can play anywhere.

A receiver with sure hands and a safe floor, Liz projects Jefferson to reel in upwards of 65 receptions in 2020.
