Justin Jefferson will try to continue his assault on opposing defenses when the Minnesota Vikings host the Los Angeles Chargers during the Week 3 NFL schedule. Jefferson, who led the league with 1,809 receiving yards last season, leads the NFL in receiving again this year and brought in 11 of 13 targets for 159 yards in the Vikings’ 34-28 loss to the Eagles last week. On Sunday, Jefferson will line up against a Chargers defense that’s giving up 438.5 yards per game, giving you plenty of options for NFL bets. According to the latest Week 3 NFL odds, the Vikings are one-point favorites at home.
