Dynasty Player Profiles: Irv Smith Jr. (2022 Fantasy Football)

Irv Smith Jr. (TE – MIN) came into the league in 2019 as a second-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings. He was a top-rated TE prospect and highly thought of in the NFL draft community.

In 2019 he was a rookie, and we gave him a break because Kyle Rudolph (TE – MIN) was on the team.
