Justin Jefferson is poised to be the NFL's best wide receiver by the end of 2022 — if he isn't already

Justin Jefferson's unbridled confidence knows no bounds.

Fresh off his second consecutive 1,400-yard season, the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver not only said he can crack 2,000 receiving yards (which would break an NFL record) but he also believes he’ll be considered the best pass-catcher in the NFL by season’s end. Yes, better than Las Vegas Raiders receiver Davante Adams — whom Jefferson said is No. 1 right now — and Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp, who led the league in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2021.

“I think I have to do it three years in a row for everybody to believe [I’m the best],” Jefferson told Complex on July 14.
