- Justin Jefferson has +100 odds to finish second in receiving yards this season.
- Dalvin Cook also has +100 odds to finish second but in rushing yards.
MINNEAPOLIS – There are just three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season and Jonathan Taylor and Cooper Kupp have a firm grip on being the rushing and receiving leaders of the league.
With that, NFL betting sites have odds on who is going to finish second, and both Minnesota Vikings stars, Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson are favored for both.
Jefferson’s Race To Lose
Most Receiving Yards Without Cooper Kupp Odds
- Justin Jefferson +100
- Davante Adams +300
- Deebo Samuel +500
- Tyreek Hill +500
- Ja'Marr Chase +5000
- Tyler Lockett +5000
The spot for the second-most receiving yards this season is Justin Jefferson’s to lose as he already has the second most yards. Jefferson has gone 1,335 receiving yards this season including 10 games of 70+ yards. He also has five games this season with 110+ receiving yards.
Looking at the Minnesota Vikings upcoming schedule, it is set up nicely for Jefferson to hold on to the second-most receiving yards. Minnesota has matchups remaining against the Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Rams, and Green Bay Packers. Each of them have allowed 2000+ receiving yards this season.
Cook Closing In
Most Rushing Yards Without Jonathan Taylor Odds
- Dalvin Cook +100
- Joe Mixon +175
- Nick Chubb +400
- Najee Harris +2500
- Antonio Gibson +5000
Although Dalvin Cook is favored, Joe Mixon of the Cincinnati Bengals sits less than 30 yards ahead of Cook for second place. Overall Cook is a highly more talented running back than Mixon. Something to take note of is that Cook is just under 30 yards away from the second spot and has played three fewer games than Mixon has this season.
Cook has also been extremely explosive in his last seven fully healthy games as each of them has gone for 75+ rushing yards. That includes a 205-yard outing in Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mixon, on the other hand, has struggled in his last three games as he has stayed under 60 yards in those games.
Although the Rams and Packers are tougher games against the run having allowed less than 1050 rushing yards this season, the Bears are the money game as they have allowed 1,434 rushing yards.
With Mixon struggling and no end in sight, Cook could be on his way to overtaking the second-most rushing yards in the league.
