Conklin caught two of his three targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 34-26 loss to the 49ers. Conklin has caught multiple passes in every game this season and has totaled 40 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns through 11 contests. The 25-year-old has solidified himself as the Vikings' No. 1 pass-catching tight end with Irv Smith (knee) out for the season. He will likely remain a high-floor fantasy option against the Lions in Week 12.
Conklin caught all three of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Packers. Conklin fell back down to earth following his two-touchdown game in Week 10, finishing fifth in targets among Minnesota receiving options. The 25-year-old is still the clear-cut starter for the Vikings and has provided deep-league value with 388 yards and three touchdowns through 10 contests. Conklin will have his work cut out for him against the 49ers' athletic coverage linebackers next Sunday.
Conklin caught three of five targets for 11 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers. He didn't see a lot of action between the 20s, but the tight end caught a five-yard TD strike from Kirk Cousins in the second quarter and a one-yard score in the third, accounting for both the QB's touchdowns on the afternoon. Conklin came into the game with only one TD on the year, but he's seen at least five targets in four straight games, giving his fantasy value some stability heading into a Week 11 clash with the Packers.
Conklin had five receptions on seven targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 34-31 overtime loss at Baltimore. Conklin tied for the team lead in targets as he continues to become a main weapon for Kirk Cousins in the passing game. However, Conklin has just one touchdown and four red-zone targets this season.
Conklin had three receptions (five targets) for 71 yards in Sunday's 34-28 win over the Panthers. Conklin surpassed his previous single-game high in yards this season by one yard, doing most of his damage on a big 40-yard play. The 26-year-old remains the starting tight end for Minnesota, but his lack of targets (five per game) and red zone looks (just three this season) caps his fantasy potential. However, Conklin appears to be a solid bye week fill-in once he returns from Minnesota's upcoming bye week due to his consistent, albeit low, usage.
