Tyler Conklin continues to improve and show promise

Vikings tight end Tyler Conklin has improved on the field this offseason. Now filling a TE2 role following Kyle Rudolph's departure, Conklin continues to "show the impact he can make" during minicamp.

Fantasy Impact

Conklin's emergence as an above-average TE2 could pay dividends for an electric offense that often features two-tight end sets. This is a system with a lot of mouths to feed, but Conklin, alongside Irv Smith Jr., has shown what he brings to the table. "It's a bigger role for Tyler Conklin," detailed head coach Mike Zimmer. "He has kind of emerged as a guy that's moving upward, and with those two guys, we have a lot of weapons there. ... We're excited about these two young tight ends that we have." Conklin ranks 51st among tight ends in the latest expert consensus draft rankings, though that could change as the offseason progresses.

Tyler Conklin scores first career TD in Week 15 loss

Tyler Conklin brought in three of four targets for 57 yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The third-year man secured his first career touchdown and finished behind only Justin Jefferson for team lead in receiving yards. Conklin has shined in his last two games, but he may head back to a bench role if Kyle Rudolph returns in Week 16.

Tyler Conklin posts career-best performance in Week 14 loss

Tyler Conklin corralled all five of his targets for 40 yards in the Vikings’ 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The receptions were a career-high for the third-year man, and the receiving yards were his most in a game since December, 2018. Conklin entered the game sporting a 4/26 receiving line on the season, and he eclipsed those totals in this contest alone. Conklin has some deep-league value as long as Kyle Rudolph is out, but he’s not a guy to roster in 12-team leagues.
