This Week Outlook
Irv Smith Jr. caught two of three targets for 30 yards in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Smith Jr.'s performance was a bit disappointing on a night where Kirk Cousins threw for 405 yards. He posted 36/311/2 across 16 games as a rookie and went 30/365/5 across 11 games in his second season. Smith Jr. will look to take the next step forward in his third season in 2021.
Irv Smith Jr. corralled six of nine targets for 53 yards and two TDs in the Vikings' 52-33 loss to the Saints on Christmas.
Smith Jr.'s huge day came out of nowhere after he disappointed a week ago. It's nearly impossible to predict his production on a weekly basis, but he'll be on the streaming radar for Week 17 against the Lions if Kyle Rudolph remains out.
Irv Smith Jr. caught three of four targets for 37 yards in the Vikings’ 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.
Smith Jr. flopped in Sunday's favorable matchup, as Tyler Conklin finished with the stronger performance. Kyle Rudolph could return in Week 16, and Smith Jr. won't be a recommended play against New Orleans on Christmas Day.
Irv Smith Jr. caught all four of his targets for 63 yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Smith Jr. made the most of his opportunities sans Kyle Rudolph, as the second-year man led the team in receiving yards and reeled in Kirk Cousins’ only touchdown of the afternoon on a 14-yard grab in the third quarter. If Rudy is out for Week 15, Smith Jr. would be a quality streamer against Chicago.
Vikings TE Irv Smith Jr. (back) is active for Week 14 vs. the Buccaneers.
As expected, Smith is active and will start vs. the Buccaneers. His teammate, Kyle Rudolph, is inactive, making Smith a solid bet for more targets today.
