Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Conklin caught just 13 passes through his first 2 NFL seasons after arriving as a 5th-round pick in 2018.
  • He more than doubled that with 19 receptions in 2020. Fifteen of those came over the final 4 games, after Kyle Rudolph went down.
  • Conklin edged Irv Smith 21-20 in targets over that span. The 2 each caught 15 passes over that stretch, with Smith leading in yardage (183-168) and TDs (3-1).
  • New OC Klint Kubiak views both Smith and Conklin as more than just TEs: “Those two tight ends, they can play wideout too. Those guys are extremely versatile. They’re complete tight ends: run, block and line up in a two-point stance and go at you.”
  • HC Mike Zimmer, asked in June about Smith’s role growing in Rudolph’s absence, said: “I think it’s a bigger role for Tyler Conklin. He’s kind of emerged as a guy that’s moving upward and with those two guys, we have a lot of weapons there. Irv always has been able to do what he’s been able to do whether Kyle was here or not.”

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Conklin’s biggest selling point might be that he’s not really on the fantasy radar. Minnesota’s 2nd TE has finished outside the top 20 each of the past 2 years, so betting on big upside here wouldn’t be the right move. But he’s well worth stashing in dynasty and keeping in mind as a waiver option for redraft leagues.

Vikings TE Tyler Conklin (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He should be a full-go for this weekend’s opener vs. the Bengals. You should be able to do better in season-long leagues, but Conklin is in play as a cheap DFS option.

Vikings TE Tyler Conklin (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday, according to beat writer Chris Tomasson. Conklin missed 2 weeks with the hamstring injury. But, barring a setback, he's set to open the season as Minnesota's lead TE. We're still waiting to hear how long TE Irv Smith will be out.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer expects TE Tyler Conklin to return to practice next week. He's been sidelined since injuring his hamstring on August 16. With TE Irv Smith out at least for the start of the season -- and potentially much longer -- Conklin is atop Minnesota's depth chart. We'll see if the Vikings add to the position.
