Justin Jefferson is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL. At this point, there aren’t a lot of people who would argue otherwise. That includes Rich Gannon, former Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders quarterback, now NFL analyst for CBS Sports and Sirius XM Radio.

But Gannon did a video hit for The 33rd Team on Twitter, Tuesday, and had plenty of criticism for JJ too. He questioned some of his routes, of late, and his lack of effort. Captions are included in the video.

Justin Jefferson not fighting back hard enough for the football? Taking bad routes and not doing all the fundamental things that have made him the upper-echelon WR he is today? That’s weird to hear said about JJ, but it’s tough to fight the evidence that Gannon brings to his argument.

We know the Minnesota Vikings have to do a better job of getting Justin Jefferson the ball. But clearly, he needs to be better as well.
