  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Should avoid surgery

    Coach Kevin O'Connell expects Smith (ankle) to avoid surgery and gave a timeline estimate of 4-to-8 weeks Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The Vikings hope to get Smith back at some point in December or January, though his role won't be what it was if new teammate T.J. Hockenson stays healthy. The Vikings traded for Hockenson at the trade deadline after Smith injured his ankle in a Week 8 win over Arizona, with initial reports suggesting the latter would miss 8-to-10 weeks. O'Connell apparently is a bit more optimistic but still expects Smith to be out a while. The tight end was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Goes on IR

    The Vikings placed Smith (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday. Smith's move to IR became a foregone conclusion after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier in the day that the 24-year-old will likely be sidelined 8-10 weeks due to the high-ankle sprain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. In response to Smith's upcoming absence, the Vikings acquired one of the NFL's better tight ends in T.J. Hockenson, and Hockenson will likely remain atop the depth chart for the rest of the season so long as he's healthy. With that in mind, Smith doesn't look as though he'll be in line for a substantial role if he's able to make it back from IR during the final few weeks of the season.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Set to miss 8-to-10 weeks

    Smith is in line to miss 8-to-10 weeks as a result of the high-ankle sprain that he sustained during Sunday's win against the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With such a lengthy recovery timeline, Smith inevitably will be placed on injured reserve by the Vikings, who replaced him by trading for T.J. Hockenson on Tuesday. The timing perhaps was fortuitous for the team, but Smith himself now will be hard-pressed to see action before the end of the regular season. While he is sidelined, Hockenson and Johnny Mundt will be Minnesota's tight ends for the foreseeable future, although the latter is primarily a blocker.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Will miss time with ankle sprain

    Smith is expected to miss multiple weeks after he was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain following his early exit from Sunday's 34-26 win over the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Vikings made it apparent that they anticipated Smith would miss time, as the team acquired T.J. Hockenson from the divisional rival Lions on Tuesday. Hockenson should immediately step in as the Vikings' new No. 1 tight end beginning with this Sunday's game in Washington, and his superior production through his first three-plus seasons in the NFL suggests he'll retain that spot atop the depth chart even after Smith returns. Before suffering the ankle injury, the third-year player had been a serviceable secondary target in the Vikings' passing game, having turned in a 22-168-2 line through the first seven games. However, his injury and the addition of Hockenson means that Smith is a drop candidate in nearly every redraft league.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: High-ankle sprain feared

    The Vikings' initial belief is that Smith suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's 34-26 win over the Cardinals, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Smith will undergo further testing including an MRI on Monday, but if a high-ankle sprain is confirmed, the tight end likely will be forced to miss time. Johnny Mundt and Jacob Hollister would stand to handle increased roles and hold down the tight end position if Smith indeed needs to sit out. Smith has logged three straight games with exactly four catches, which he translated into 28 receiving yards Sunday.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: To have MRI on ankle

    Coach Kevin O'Connell said Smith sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's 34-26 win versus the Cardinals and will undergo an MRI, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. For the third game in a row, Smith hauled in exactly four passes en route to 28 yards, placing him fourth on the Vikings in terms of yardage Week 8. Having said that, he emerged from the contest with a health concern, with the upcoming evaluation potentially providing some clarity as to the extent of the injury.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Smith gets an amazing matchup this week against the Cardinals, and he's worth using as a streaming option in all leagues. Arizona is No. 2 in most Fantasy points allowed to tight ends, and six have scored at least 10 PPR points against the Cardinals, with six touchdowns allowed. Smith scored a touchdown in his last game before Minnesota's bye in Week 7 with four catches for 7 yards on four targets at Miami in Week 6. This could be his breakout game of the season in Week 8.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Week 8 Streamers (TE Preview)

    I love the matchup this week for Smith, but I'm a little bit concerned about his PPR upside because he hasn't had more than five targets in a game since Week 3. Still, Juwan Johnson just scored 20.2 Fantasy points on five targets against this defense.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Week 8 Waiver Priority List

    Smith scored a touchdown in his last game before Minnesota's bye in Week 7 with four catches for 7 yards on four targets at Miami in Week 6. But that's not why he's listed here. He gets to face the Cardinals in Week 8, and that's a dream matchup. Arizona is No. 2 in most Fantasy points allowed to tight ends, and six have scored at least 10 PPR points against the Cardinals, with six touchdowns allowed. Smith could have a breakout game in this matchup, and he's worth adding for up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Finds end zone in win

    Smith brought in all four targets for seven yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 24-16 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. The athletic tight end recorded his second consecutive four-catch tally, and although he produced his second-lowest yardage total of the season, he partly made up for it with a one-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. The score was Smith's second of the season,, and after sitting out all of last season following knee surgery, the 24-year-old has has been encouragingly consistent while producing an 18-140-2 tally following a blanking in the opener.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Makes four catches

    Smith caught four of five targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 29-22 win over the Bears. Smith trailed only starting wideouts Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen in targets, helping him post a season high in receiving yards. While that feat offers some reason for optimism ahead of Week 6's matchup versus the Dolphins, Smith's overall stock remains relatively modest.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Three receptions Sunday

    Smith had three receptions for 23 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over New Orleans in London. Smith again didn't get the start at tight end, but he got more snaps (43) on on offense than Johnny Mundt (20) and ran more routes (30-5). Despite Smith's meager production, he was third on the team in targets, which should bode well for better games ahead.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Sleeper TEs

    Coach Kevin O'Connell said Smith would be more involved in Week 2 at Philadelphia after he barely played in Week 1 against Green Bay in his comeback from the thumb injury he had in training camp, and that's exactly what happened. Smith had eight targets against the Eagles and finished with five catches for 36 yards and a touchdown. He also missed out on what could have been a 60-yard touchdown in the game with a drop. Smith has top-10 upside this week against the Lions, who allowed Logan Thomas to score in Week 2.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Week 3 Streamers (TE Preview)

    We fully expect Kirk Cousins to light up the Lions and Irv Smith looked like the No. 3 option in this offense we expected in Week 2. The only hesitation is how limited his role was in Week 1. Hopefully that was the aberration, but it's tough to trust him until we see for sure.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Week 3 Waiver Priority List

    Kevin O'Connell said Irv Smith would be more involved in the offense in Week 2 at the Eagles, and he was with eight targets. He finished with five catches for 36 yards and a touchdown, and he should be in the conversation as a low-end starter in Week 3 against the Lions. And if he plays well in Week 3 then he could be a weekly starter moving forward. He's worth up to 10 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Finds end zone in Week 2 loss

    Smith secured five of eight targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 24-7 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. The fourth-year tight end crossed the goal line in the second quarter for the first time since Week 16 of the 2020 season after missing all of the 2021 campaign with a knee injury. Smith had the look of a budding star that season with a 30-365-5 line across 13 games, but in a previous iteration of the Vikings' offense, he may have had an uphill climb for targets. While plenty of attention is still likely to be bestowed upon wideouts Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, the fact Smith drew the second-most looks Monday night behind the former is reason for optimism that head coach Kevin O'Connell, who utilized Tyler Higbee with effectiveness during his Rams days, will continue affording Smith plenty of opportunity even with Smith having a bad drop on a potential 60-yard deep touchdown. The 24-year-old's first chance to build on his solid Week 2 effort comes against the Lions in a Week 3 home NFC North showdown.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Limited role in Week 1

    Smith didn't catch either of his two targets and played on just 19 of of the offense's 62 snaps in Sunday's win against Green Bay. He came off the bench while Johnny Mundt got the start. "I missed a lot of camp," Smith told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We didn't want to kind of rush me into things too much. Just wanted to get a feel and keep building on it." Smith didn't have much of a role on offense because he was eased into action after Aug. 2 thumb surgery and after missing last season due to a knee injury. His role in the offense should increase, but it's not clear if he'll move into a starting spot Week 2.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Good to go for opener

    Smith (thumb) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report ahead of Sunday's season opener against Green Bay. Smith apparently is ready to play after missing most of training camp and the entire preseason in the wake of Aug. 2 thumb surgery. He should handle the majority of Minnesota's snaps and targets at tight end, as backups Johnny Mundt and Ben Ellefson have combined for 11 career NFL receptions. It's a situation that gives Smith breakout appeal for a second straight summer, and this time he was able to move past his preseason injury, after he suffered a season-ending meniscus tear last August. The 24-year-old will take the field Sunday for the first time since the 2021 preseason.

  • Vikings' Irv Smith: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    I'm hopeful Smith can stay healthy after missing all of 2021 with a knee injury, and then he hurt his thumb in training camp. But he should be ready for Week 1 against the Packers, and I hope he becomes a prominent target for Kirk Cousins. Smith is a good tight end to settle for on Draft Day, and he could emerge as a weekly starter in all leagues if he becomes a quality red-zone threat for Minnesota. Smith is worth up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB.
