Addison caught four of eight targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Lions.
Addison and fellow wideout Justin Jefferson both played 93 percent of the Vikings' offensive snaps Sunday as they both dominated the target share among pass catchers. This duo appears to be primed for big things to come in Minnesota, as the rookie Addison showed that he could be a playmaker in the Vikings' offense. In 17 games, the wideout recorded 70 receptions for 911 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 21-year-old should continue to improve his game and function as a strong complement to Jefferson in the Vikings' passing attack regardless of who suits up at quarterback for the 2024 season.

Addison (ankle) had three receptions on five targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Packers.
Addison's status for Sunday Night Football was in question earlier in the week when the wideout left last week's loss to the Lions with an ankle injury. The 21-year-old was able to suit up after a couple of limited practice sessions and escaped the blowout loss no worse for wear. Addison will get another week to inch closer to full health ahead of the rematch with Detroit in Week 18.
Addison (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.
Addison departed the Vikings' Week 16 loss to the Lions with a sprained ankle and wasn't able to return to action. He then opened Week 17 prep with no activity before capping it with back-to-back limited sessions and entering the weekend with a questionable designation. Early Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Addison was in line to play Sunday, and Minnesota has confirmed as much by not including him among its inactives. Addison thus will be taking on a Green Bay defense that has been torched by opposing wide receivers to the tune of a 43-632-5 line on 54 targets over the last three games.
Addison (ankle) remains listed as questionable but will be available to play Sunday against the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Though Rapoport previously reported that Addison was viewed as week-to-week after the wideout sustained an ankle sprain in the Vikings' 30-24 loss to the Lions last Sunday, the rookie ended up making swifter progress in his recovery than anticipated. After sitting out Wednesday's walk-through, Addison concluded Week 17 prep with a pair of limited practices to create more optimism that he would be available for Sunday. Addison has experienced no apparent setbacks coming out of Friday's practice, so he looks as though he'll be officially cleared to play upon the release of the Vikings' inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. While Justin Jefferson is locked in as the unquestioned No. 1 pass catcher for newly installed starting quarterback Jaren Hall, Addison and K.J. Osborn could both be in store for larger target shares than normal with standout tight end T.J. Hockenson (knee) out for the season.
Addison (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
While unable to rejoin Sunday's loss to Detroit following his ankle injury in the second quarter, Addison returned to practice Thursday as a limited participant and now heads into the weekend looking truly questionable after another limited practice Friday. A game-time call would be tricky for a lot of fantasy managers, as the Vikings and Packers are the final matchup of the week with kickoff scheduled for 7:20 p.m. ET on Sunday. If Addison doesn't play, Brandon Powell likely will fill in alongside Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn in three-wide formations.

After being held out of Wednesday's walkthrough, Addison was able to handle some on-field work one day later as he looks to miss no game action due to the ankle sprain that he suffered this past Sunday against the Lions. Coach Kevin O'Connell called Addison "day-to-day" on Tuesday, per Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, but it remains to be seen if the rookie first-round pick will sidestep a designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Friday's injury report will unveil whether or not that's the case for Addison.
Addison (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate.
The Vikings only held a walkthrough instead of an actual practice to begin Week 17 prep, but Addison didn't mix into any on-field work as he tends to the ankle sprain that he suffered during this past Sunday's loss to the Lions. On Tuesday, coach Kevin O'Connell called Addison "day-to-day," per Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, so the rookie wide receiver seemingly has a chance to suit up Sunday against the Packers. Addison's activity level, if any, Thursday and Friday could forecast his odds to do so this weekend.
Head coach Kevin O'Connell classified Addison (ankle) as day-to-day Tuesday and wasn't willing to rule the receiver out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.
O'Connell didn't go into many details regarding the severity of the ankle sprain that forced Addison out of this past Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Lions, but the "day-to-day" label paints a rosier picture of the wideout's health after Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Monday that he was being considered week-to-week. The Vikings will likely wait and see what Addison is able to do during the week of practice before potentially giving him a designation for the Week 17 contest following Friday's session. O'Connell also announced Tuesday that star tight end T.J. Hockenson (knee) will miss the rest of the season, so if he's able to overcome his own injury, Addison could be in store for a larger target share behind top pass catcher Justin Jefferson over the final two games of the campaign.
Addison is considered week-to-week due to the ankle sprain he sustained during Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Per Rapoport, added context regarding Addison's status should arrive following tests Monday. Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, the wideout was on the field for 21 of the Vikings' 55 snaps on offense, while catching one of his four targets for two yards. If Addison is forced to miss this weekend's contest against the Packers, added Week 17 WR snaps would be available for K.J. Osborn and Brandon Powell.
