It's hard to argue against Jordan Addison being the best rookie wide receiver in the NFL after his huge first half against the 49ers on Monday night saw him haul in five passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns. 

Addison's 60-yard touchdown with 7 seconds left in the second quarter not only gave Minnesota a 16-7 lead over the heavily favored 49ers but it also saved Kirk Cousins from a second interception. 

Ironically, Addison ripped the ball from defensive back Charvarius Ward's hands and ran uncontested for the touchdown. It was almost Ward's second interception of the half as he ripped the ball away from Addison on the third play of the game. 

By the way, Addison could've had three touchdowns in the first half but Cousins threw the ball just out of his reach when the Vikings had the ball inside the 5-yard line earlier in the second quarter. 

With another half to play, Addison has six touchdowns in his rookie season.
