Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Finishes season with 19 receptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin completed the 2020 campaign catching 19 of his 26 targets for 194 yards and one touchdown.

In his third season with the Vikings, the 2018 fifth-round pick had career highs in receptions and yards. The tight end also scored his first NFL touchdown and began to show his ability as a pass catcher toward the end of the regular season after No. 2 tight end Kyle Rudolph (foot) landed on IR. With Rudolph under contract through 2023 and 2019 second-rounder Irv Smith ahead of him on the depth chart, Conklin will have difficulty being a regular in Minnesota's offense as he enters the final year of his rookie deal.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Makes impact again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin secured three of four targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

The 25-year-old had a presence on the stat sheet for the second straight week, following up his solid 5-40 line against the Buccaneers with Sunday's showing, which included his first career touchdown. Conklin's elevated role over the last pair of contests is a direct byproduct of the absence of Kyle Rudolph (foot), so it would be difficult to trust it continuing were his veteran teammate to return for a Week 16 matchup against the Saints on Christmas Day.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Five receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin had five receptions for 40 yards on five targets in Sunday's 26-14 loss to Tampa Bay.

Conklin played a season-high 45 snaps with Kyle Rudolph sidelined with a foot injury. He played more snaps than Irv Smith (28), but that may be only because Smith was coming back after missing two games with a back injury. Conklin could continue to be part of the passing game if Rudolph is out another week, but it won't be a surprise if Smith overtakes him for playing time.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Gains 10 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win against the Jaguars.

With Irv Smith (back) inactive, Conklin logged a season-high 59 snaps on offense (65 percent), landing just five snaps shy of Kyle Rudolph, who finished with no receptions on two targets. Conklin's getting plenty of usage when Smith is out of the lineup. If Smith returns in Week 14 against the Buccaneers, Conklin will shift back to a reserve role.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Makes two grabs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin caught both of his targets for 11 yards in Monday night's 19-13 win over the Bears.

Conklin moved up the depth chart with Irv Smith (groin) sidelined and made his first couple receptions of the campaign. Should Smith remain out Sunday versus the Cowboys, Conklin would figure to assume a similar role, boosting his value despite his still-restricted ceiling.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: No touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin did not have a target in Sunday's 43-34 loss to Green Bay. He played just eight snaps on offense.

With both Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith healthy, Conklin is going to have a minimal role on offense and will get most of his snaps (12 on Sunday) on special teams.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Finishes with eight catches in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin finished with eight receptions for 58 yards over 15 regular-season games in 2019.

Conklin worked as the No. 3 right end behind Kyle Rudolph and rookie Irv Smith. The 24-year-old Conklin averaged 18.4 offensive snaps per game, running routes on 67.6 percent of those snaps. Since Rudolph and Smith are both under contract in 2020, Conklin won't warrant fantasy attention heading into next season.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (knee) was a full participant for Tuesday's walkthrough practice.

Conklin had suffered the knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's wild-card win over the Saints. His full practice availability suggests that, barring a setback this week, the Central Michigan product will be ready to go for Sunday's matchup against San Francisco.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Exits contest Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card game against the Saints.

Conklin went up for a catch in the redzone in the second quarter and came up limping after missing the pass. He'll likely get additional treatment at the halftime break, but as long as he's sidelined, the only healthy tight ends for the Vikings are Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Catches three passes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin caught all three of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Conklin now has seven catches for 49 yards over the last three contests after not recording a catch through his first seven games of the season. The 24-year-old played a season-high 35 offensive snaps Sunday, but he still saw fewer snaps than fellow tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Two receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin had two receptions for 28 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Denver.

Conklin didn't have a reception and had just one target on the season before Sunday. With Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith playing well ahead of him on the depth chart, it's hard to see him getting more than a few targets per game. Still, his four targets over the last two games make him worth monitoring in deep formats.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (ribs) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Conklin sat out Week 1 and was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now looks to have fully recovered from his ribs injury. He'll play his usual depth role behind Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith during Sunday's game against the Packers.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Conklin is working to recover from a lingering ribs injury, the severity of which cost him regular-season time Week 1 in the form of an inactive designation. If he's able to get healthy in time for Sunday's tilt against the Packers, Conklin will serve as a reserve tight end option behind Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Can't shake injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (ribs) is officially listed as inactive for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

Conklin suffered the rib injury during Friday's practice, and as evidenced by this news, it will cost him Week 1 availability. The fact that Conklin is inactive won't have a large fantasy impact, and the team will roll with Brandon Dillon as its third-string tight end.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin (ribs) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Conklin tweaked his ribs in Friday's practice according to Krammer. The depth tight end appears to be trending towards suiting up versus Atlanta. If Conklin were to miss any time, the fantasy impact would be minimal.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Five catches in rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin caught five of seven targets for 77 yards over 16 games in 2018.

Conklin saw double-digit offensive snaps in only three games this season, but capitalized Week 15 by catching two of three targets for 53 yards. The 2018 fifth-round pick out of Central Michigan will look to secure the No. 2 tight end job behind starter Kyle Rudolph heading into his first full offseason in the league.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Posts career bests against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin caught two of three targets or 53 yards in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

Conklin recorded career highs in receptions and yards on his way to leading the Vikings in receiving. His biggest gain went for 33 yards on a play-action fake as Kirk Cousins found Conklin near the left sideline. It remains to be seen if Minnesota's change at offensive coordinator contributed to Conklin's increased involvement, though this was a positive sign for the rookie.

Vikings' Tyler Conklin: One reception in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conklin had one reception for six yards on his only target in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Conklin played just nine snaps on offense but went out for a pass on five of them, according to Pro Football Focus. He could have a larger role in the passing game if Kyle Rudolph gets hurt, but he'll otherwise will have a minimal role. Still, it's a good sign for the fifth-round 2018 draft pick's development that he was involved on offense this early in the season.
