2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 2020 fifth-round draft pick Osborn found work as a returner last season. He'll face competition in training camp from Dede Westbrook for the punt return job he held much of last season. He'll also compete for a depth receiver role. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $3.56 million contract with the Vikings in July of 2020.
Hits pay dirt in loss
WRMinnesota Vikings
January 2, 2022
Osborn had three receptions (five targets) for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Green Bay.
ANALYSIS
Osborn stepped into the starting lineup in place of Adam Thielen (ankle) as expected, and he delivered a strong fantasy performance with a second-half touchdown. The 24-year-old was already seeing his role increase prior to Thielen's season-ending injury last week, scoring four of his six touchdowns over the last five weeks. The Vikings will take on the Bears in a meaningless game (from a playoffs standpoint), but Osborn and the rest of Minnesota's offensive options would benefit if Kirk Cousins (illness) is able to return.
