Irv Smith Jr goes for 29 yards in win

Irv Smith Jr caught both of his targets for 29 yards in the Vikings’ 38-20 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie hasn’t had much of a role in the offense this season, and that’s unlikely to change as the season goes on. He can be avoided in most league sizes.

Irv Smith Jr catches one pass

Irv Smith Jr caught his only target for five yards in the Vikings’ 16-6 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing day for Smith after a big Week 3 performance. His target share is minimal, and he can’t be trusted as a consistent weekly option.

Irv Smith Jr. leads team in receiving

Irv Smith Jr. caught all three of his targets for 60 yards in the Vikings’ 34-14 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. made his first NFL reception last week, losing one yard in the process. He paced Minnesota in receiving in Week 3, and if he can find consistent targets from Kirk Cousins, he may be a nice streaming option, given his athleticism and the struggles of the Vikings’ receiving corps, sans Adam Thielen.

Irv Smith Jr catches TD in win

Irv Smith Jr caught all five of his targets for 28 yards and a TD in the Vikings’ win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith led the Vikings in targets last week, and he followed that up with an impressive showing in Sunday’s win. He continues to show his natural abilities in the passing game, and there’s a chance he could push Kyle Rudolph for the starting TE job this season.

Irv Smith Jr leads Vikings in targets

Irv Smith Jr caught three of seven targets for 21 yards in the Vikings' 34-25 win over the Saints on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The Alabama product was selected 50th overall in this year's draft for his athleticism and playmaking abilities at the tight end position. While he will face competition from veteran Kyle Rudolph for snaps, the rookie could earn more run if he has a strong preseason showing. Friday's performance and team-high seven targets were encouraging.
