Do the Minnesota Vikings have the best wide Receiver duo in football?

NFL Network’s Stacey Dales believes so.

During a recent segment on NFL Network, Dales expressed her excitement about the Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver duo, highlighting their potential to dominate the league.

Dales is particularly eager to see Jordan Addison in action, noting his impressive offseason performance.

Addison, entering his second NFL season, is the clear No. 2 receiver for the Vikings, partnering with the elite Justin Jefferson. Together, they make a compelling case for being the top wide receiver duo in the NFL.

“Could this be the best wide receiver duo in the National Football League between these two? (Addison) had 10 receiving touchdowns to lead all rookie receivers last season,” Dales said. He had four different quarterbacks in the process and a stretch in which Justin Jefferson was injured. … This young man could have a whopping sophomore season in the NFL.” 

Addison’s rookie stats are indeed impressive. He recorded 70 receptions for 911 yards and 10 touchdowns, a remarkable feat for a No. 2 option, especially given the injury to veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Meanwhile, Jefferson, despite missing seven games, managed 68 catches for 1,074 yards and five touchdowns. His performance underlines his status as one of the league’s best receivers.

With Jefferson returning healthy and flaunting a new contract and Addison bringing a year of NFL experience, the duo is poised to make a significant impact this season.

However, the Vikings face some uncertainty at the quarterback position. Sam Darnold and rookie J.J. McCarthy are competing for the starting role.

Currently, signs point to Darnold being the starting quarterback when the Vikings kick off their season against the New York Giants on September 8.

Despite that expectation, McCarthy remains in contention for the starting job. Despite the uncertainty at quarterback, one thing is clear: whoever takes the snaps will have an elite pair of wide receivers to target.

The upcoming season holds much promise for the Vikings’ offense, and if Addison and Jefferson can live up to their potential, they might just prove to be the best wide receiver duo in football.
