|6-2, 255||Born: 1-18-1975||College: Georgia||Drafted: ---|
2006 Week 1 vs WAS (6 / 5 / 29 / 0 rec)
Wiggins was a significant part of the passing game and only Williamson had more targets for the Vikings. He converted on third and four, making a seven yard reception. He made another catch on the following play and fumbled the ball out of bounds after trying to hurdle Sean Taylor. He later drew a holding penalty and then made a 15 yard reception for a first down on the Vikings' final drive of the first half. Johnson targeted him with a left handed pass as he tried to evade a sack, but Wiggins dropped it.
2006 Week 2 vs CAR (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Wiggins wasn't utilized much in the Minnesota game plan. Neither of his receptions had an impact on the outcome. He did drop a pass that hit him in the hands during the fourth quarter.
2006 Week 3 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Wiggins caught one ball for nine yards
2006 Week 4 vs BUF (7 / 6 / 59 / 0 rec)
Wiggins was the second leading receiver for the Vikings with 59 yards on six receptions. He saw half of his targets in the fourth quarter when Minnesota was forced to pass the ball.
2006 Week 5 vs DET (4 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)
Wiggins wasn't a focal point of the offense, and was never targeted on anything downfield. He did catch a ball in the red zone and was taken down at the two yard line, but wasn't targeted again.
2006 Week 7 vs SEA (2 / 1 / 15 / 1 rec)
Wiggins caught a 15 yard touchdown pass from RB Mewelde Moore in the third quarter. It was his only catch of the day.
2006 Week 8 vs NE (6 / 4 / 26 / 0 rec)
Wiggins made the Vikings' first reception of the day, gaining ten yards and a first down. He was not targeted again in the first half. Wiggins caught three of his five second half targets for short gains and was the intended receiver when Brad Johnson threw his third interception of the day. Wiggins appeared to make another catch to convert on third down, but the pass was ruled incomplete. The Vikings went for it on fourth down and failed.
2006 Week 9 vs SF (3 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wiggins had three receptions for only 18 yards. He was one of quarterback Brad Johnson's few reliable receivers in the game.
2006 Week 10 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wiggins and the rest of the Vikings' tight ends made no impact in the passing game as none of them made any receptions and Wiggins was the only one to have any passes thrown to him. Tight ends as pass receivers seem to be an after thought in this offense and hold little, if any value.
2006 Week 11 vs MIA (11 / 6 / 66 / 0 rec)
Most of Wiggins' catches and yardage came in the second half as quarterback Brad Johnson made an effort to get the ball to him. Wiggins did finish with a game high 12 targets. Wiggins' two biggest catches, a 21 yard reception and 14 yard catch were both over the middle for first downs, and came toward the end of the game as the Vikings attempted to comeback from 11 points down with three minutes left.
2006 Week 12 vs ARI (8 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)
Wiggins made a lot of tough catches over the middle in the game and was a one of the main target in the Minnesota offense. He finished the game with six catches for 52 yards, but was second on the team with seven targets. He caught a big fourth down pass with less then a minute in the first half for 17 yards and a first down. The play set up Minnesota's second touchdown of the game. He had a pass broken up on the goal line in the fourth quarter on what turned out to be his best potential scoring opportunity.
2006 Week 13 vs CHI (3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Wiggins had three catches for 30 yards in the game. His best scoring opportunity came when Brad Johnson attempted a shuffle pass to Wiggins on the Bears' five yard line, but the Chicago defense stopped him for no gain. Wiggins had a nice 23 yard catch late in the game.
2006 Week 14 vs DET (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Wiggins caught a six yard pass to the Lions' three yard line early in the second quarter. It would be his only reception of the game.
2006 Week 15 vs NYJ (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Wiggins caught two five yard passes in the first half, one in each quarter. He closed his production with an 11 yard catch for a first down in the final period.
2006 Week 16 vs GB (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Wiggins caught just one pass, and didn't make any kind of impact on the game one way or the other.
2006 Week 17 vs STL (3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Wiggins had a ball thrown to him in the end zone in the first quarter, but it was way over his head. He had another ball thrown his way on a short pass out in the flat but Wiggins dropped it. He had one catch for five yards.
2005 Week 1 vs TB (8 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Jermaine Wiggins had as big of a game as you can have without scoring barely any fantasy points. He caught two touchdown passes from Daunte Culpepper which were both nullified by penalties. Culpepper was throwing his way the entire game and when Culpepper was in trouble he looked to throw the ball to Wiggins. He was definitely Culpepper's go-to-guy with 10 targets.
2005 Week 2 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Wiggins, unexplainably, was not targeted until the second half.
2005 Week 3 vs NO (7 / 6 / 60 / 0 rec)
Jermaine Wiggins was Culpepper's favorite target, getting eight looks and turning in six of them for 60 yards. For a guy so big, he moves well and has soft hands and seems to be Culpepper's security blanket in the passing game.
2005 Week 4 vs ATL (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Wiggins caught all three of his targets for 25 yards. His big play in the game was a 15 yard reception as he found a seam against the zone and Culpepper threw a strike to him.
2005 Week 6 vs CHI (15 / 10 / 68 / 0 rec)
Wiggins emerged as Culpepper's favorite target in this game. Culpepper went to Wiggins on the Vikings' second and third plays of the day for successful completions, and he continued looking his way throughout the day. Many of Wiggins' catches came on check downs when Culpepper was unable to find open receivers downfield. Though he didn't score a touchdown, Wiggins was targeted several times in the red zone.
2005 Week 7 vs GB (7 / 6 / 56 / 0 rec)
Wiggins was the favorite target for Culpepper in the game and finished with six receptions for 56 yards. The last two weeks he has 16 catches for over 120 yards but still has not managed to score a touchdown this season.
2005 Week 8 vs CAR (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Wiggins struggled this week after a couple of productive games finishing with just 36 yards on three receptions. He did have an end zone target on fourth and goal but could not hold on to the ball as it defected off his hands.
2005 Week 9 vs DET (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Wiggins struggled again this week with just one reception for 11 yards in the third quarter. His production has decreased over the last few weeks and he has yet to catch a touchdown pass this season.
2005 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 6 / 42 / 0 rec)
Wiggins, the Vikings' reception leader, caught five passes in the game. Johnson looked for him often on short routes when under pressure. Wiggins' long reception of 21 yards came on a high pass that he was able to haul in; it was the play that catalyzed the Vikings' game winning field goal drive.
2005 Week 11 vs GB (9 / 7 / 67 / 0 rec)
Wiggins was Johnson's favorite target. The sure handed Wiggins made some nice moves after the catch, including a highlight reel hurdle over a defender. He was Minnesota's second best offensive performer of the game, behind Mewelde Moore.
2005 Week 12 vs CLE (7 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)
Wiggins seems to have the best rapport with Brad Johnson, and responded with five catches in this game. He is an integral part of this offense, and takes advantage of his opportunities in this offense which is beginning to regain some of its confidence.
2005 Week 13 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wiggins was noticeably absent from the Vikings' passing game.
2005 Week 14 vs STL (4 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wiggins saw most of the targets at tight end for Minnesota. He had three receptions for 18 yards. His longest catch went for 12 yard gain and into St. Louis territory on the Vikings' first touchdown drive.
2005 Week 15 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
The Vikings' leading receiver was held in check with two receptions for only nine yards.
2005 Week 16 vs BAL (7 / 7 / 43 / 1 rec)
Wiggins pulled in a short five yard pass on the Vikings second drive. He didn't see another target until the end of the first half. However, it was a touchdown from six yards out. Wiggins did a nice job of cradling the ball in heavy traffic. QB Brad Johnson drilled him with the pass from close range. Wiggins was the beneficiary of four late receptions in garbage time.
2005 Week 17 vs CHI (5 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
Wiggins' three receptions gave him 69 catches for the season, the second straight year he's led the team in receptions.
