Jordan Addison, the rookie wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings, had a breakout performance in Week 7, leaving a lasting impression on both fans and analysts. Addison proved a valuable target for the Vikings' offense with his speed, route-running ability, and reliable hands.

In the game, Addison made his presence felt, recording seven receptions for an impressive 123 yards and two touchdowns. His ability to create separation from defenders and make contested catches was on full display, providing a spark to the Vikings' passing attack.  

The spectacular bobble takeaway interception for a strip-pick-six was the game changer and solidified the Vikings’ upset win. He continues to develop his skills and gain chemistry with Kirk Cousins. Addison has the talent to become a key playmaker for the Vikings.

Jordan Addison's breakout performance in Week 7 has cemented his status as a rising star in the league. He stepped up in Justin Jefferson's absence and beat Puka Nacua's 175-yard performance for his first NFL Mocks Rookie of the Week win. 

Dalton Kincaid. player. . 1st win. W7slp. . 26. Sam La Porta Award. Dalton Kincaid. 16

Dalton Kincaid, the rookie tight end for the Buffalo Bills, is the Sam LaPorta Award winner for Week 7. He showcased his reliability and playmaking ability in spades. Kincaid, the first tight end selected in 2023, significantly impacted the passing game, establishing himself as a reliable target for the Bills' quarterback.

Kincaid displayed his sure hands and route-running skills, recording eight receptions on eight targets for 75 yards. His ability to find openings in the defense and make contested catches made him a valuable asset for the Bills' offense. As he continues to gain experience and develop his skills, Kincaid has the potential to become a key contributor for Josh Allen and Co.

This is an emergence for Kincaid in the Bills' offense; he proved his worth over Dawson Knox and earned Josh Allen's trust by catching all his targets. This is Kincaid's first Sam LaPorta, but it will not be his last.
