Irv Smith Jr. goes for 55 yards in loss

Irv Smith Jr. caught four of five targets for 55 yards in the Vikings’ 40-23 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He nearly came down with a touchdown early in the game when he reached down for a reception at the goal line, but he couldn’t hold on to it. Minnesota then finished the drive with a turnover on downs. Smith Jr. was the Vikings’ second-leading receiver for the second week in a row, and he should be a streamable TE2 with TE1 if he can remain involved in the offense moving forward.

Irv Smith Jr. brought in four of five targets for 64 yards in the Vikings’ 27-26 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He entered the game with a 2/14 line across the previous four weeks, and his performance on SNF was surprising, to say the least. It remains to be seen if this was an outlier or if Smith Jr. will begin to see regular involvement in the offense.

Irv Smith Jr. was not targeted in the Vikings’ 31-30 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Through three games, Smith Jr. has just two receptions for 14 yards on five targets and appears to be an afterthought in the Vikings’ passing attack. He’s off the fantasy map in redraft formats.

Irv Smith Jr. goes for three yards in blowout loss

Irv Smith Jr. brought in one of four targets for three yards in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. finished behind only Adam Thielen for team lead in targets, though the added looks didn’t amount to much. The second-year man is stuck in a run-first offense with few opportunities to
