Irv Smith to have an expanded role in 2020?

Courtney Cronin of ESPN writes that Vikings tight end Irv Smith could have an expanded role in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie impressed at times last season, hauling in 36 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns while playing in all 16 games. Stefon Diggs is no longer with the Vikings, which could open up targets for the 21-year-old tight end. However, just keep in mind that for now Smith is still behind Kyle Rudolph on the team's depth chart.

Irv Smith Jr. racks up 39 yards in loss

Irv Smith Jr. caught all three of his targets for 39 yards in the Vikings’ 27-10 loss to the 49ers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. really wasn't involved much in this one, accounting for 21 of is 39 yards on the Vikings' final pass play of the afternoon -- a 4th-and-22 heave that fell a yard shy and confirmed a 49ers victory. The athletic Alabama product will look to build on a respectable rookie campaign when he returns for his second season in 2020.

Irv Smith Jr. goes for 11 yards in loss

Irv Smith Jr. brought in one of two targets for 11 yards in the Vikings’ 21-19 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. ended the season with a small receiving line, though he's failed to make much of an impact all year. In his rookie campaign, the Alabama product has notched a 36/311/2 line. He's a dynasty hold at this point.

Irv Smith Jr. totals four yards on MNF

Irv Smith Jr. caught two of three targets for four yards in the Vikings’ 23-10 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. will take a 35/300/2 receiving line into the final week of the season. He's had a solid rookie campaign, operating primarily as a complementary option to Kyle Rudolph, but he won't be a recommended play in Week 17 against Chicago.

Irv Smith Jr. scores in win

Irv Smith Jr. corralled two of three targets for eight yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 39-10 victory over the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. scored for the second time this season, accounting for Kirk Cousins' only touchdown of the afternoon. On the year, the rookie out of Alabama has racked up a 33/296/2 receiving line, and doesn't belong on fantasy rosters.
