Kroft had six receptions for 53 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Ravens.
Kroft exploded in the first half with five catches for 50 yards and both touchdowns, but fell silent in the second half with the rest of the Bengals offense. It's the first time since Week 9 the 25-year-old had more than 30 receiving yards and was his first touchdown since Week 12. The return of Tyler Eifert (back) in 2018 should limit Kroft's fantasy potential as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract.
Kroft (hamstring) turned in a full practice Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Kroft's full practice cleared up any concern the Bengals' coaching staff might have had about the tight end's health heading into the weekend. While Kroft should start and see the bulk of the snaps at tight end Sunday, he hasn't been a primary option in the Bengals' passing attack in recent weeks. Over the team's last five games, Kroft has hauled in eight of 16 targets for 60 yards and two scores.
After missing Wednesday's practice, Kroft is trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Vikings approaches. Added clarity regarding his playing status will arrive Friday, though at this stage it remains to be seen if the tight end draws a questionable designation, or is removed altogether from the Bengals' final Week 15 injury report.
Kroft didn't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.
Though Kroft was on the field for 45 of 54 offensive snaps in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Bears, he didn't catch a pass in the contest. That's two straight quiet outings for the tight end, who looks like a touchdown-dependent dart Sunday against the Vikings, that is if he's able bounce back quickly from this hamstring issue.
