Basic StatsTyler Conklin's Preseason Player Analysis

View TE Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Conklin saw increased opportunities last year following Irv Smith’s preseason (and season-ending) knee injury.
  • Across 17 games, Conklin slashed 87/61/593/3.
  • He finished as the TE16, reaching top-12 status in 5 separate weeks.
  • He wasn’t a standout efficiency-wise, posting a subpar 1.24 yards per route run and 9.7 YPC.
  • Conklin signed for 3 years in free agency at $10 million GTD. TE C.J. Uzomah was given a 3-year deal with $15 million guaranteed.
  • Jets TEs combined for only 78 targets last year (13.4%), but that was largely due to poor personnel.
  • An excellent blocker, Conklin profiles more as an aid to the Jets’ ground game than he does as a pass-game asset.
  • Conklin’s road to targets is much rougher in New York than it was in Minnesota. The Jets are stocked at WR/RB with Elijah Moore, Garrett Wilson, Corey Davis, Breece Hall and Michael Carter.
  • The Jets also added a rookie TE in Round 3 pick Jeremy Ruckert, but coming off a foot injury, he’s not expected to have a major year 1 role.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Conklin took advantage of more playing time last year, ranking top-14 among TEs in catches and yards.

Now on the Jets, his 2022 setup just doesn’t supply a similar upside. He’ll face competition for TE targets from C.J. Uzomah (and perhaps rookie Jeremy Ruckert). He’ll encounter a QB downgrade, too, while dealing with a deeper WR corps.

Conklin’s no more than a late flier in FFPC formats.

Tyler Conklin, TE NYJ

8:00am EDT 6/5/22

GM talks up new TE

Jets GM Joe Douglas told ESPN's Rich Cimini that TE Tyler Conklin "looks like he could be a nice under-the-radar find." Given that the team signed Conklin to a 3-year, $20.25 million deal with $10 million guaranteed, we're not sure just how under the radar he really is. It's certainly worth noting that Conklin has already impressed his new team, but it's also worth remembering that he got only the 2nd largest contract among new Jets TEs this offseason. "I think C.J. [Uzomah] and Conklin are going to make a pretty strong duo in this offense." Throw in 3rd-round TE Jeremy Ruckert as well, and it's tough to get excited about the fantasy football outlook for any Jets TE in any format.

NFL Network reports that the Jets are signing TE Tyler Conklin. It's a somewhat curious move for both sides this early in the free-agent cycle, given that the Jets have already agreed to a deal with TE C.J. Uzomah. The arrival of both players lowers the fantasy ceiling for each. Expect both to settle well down into reserve territory in our TE rankings.

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has been activated from the COVID list. He's expected to start Sunday's finale vs. the Bears, despite Minnesota having nothing to play for. Cousins isn't an exciting fantasy option, but his return is excellent news for WR Justin Jefferson and the rest of the Vikings' skill-position players.

Vikings TE Tyler Conklin (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Packers. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the hammy isn’t a big concern. But with Sean Mannion under center, Conklin is a shaky fantasy play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Vikings TE Tyler Conklin (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Packers tonight. Conklin got in a full practice on Friday, so the hammy isn't much of a concern. QB Sean Mannion is definitely a concern, though, and makes Conklin a shaky TE2.
