While Smith is a solid player, he landed on a team with two stud wide receivers, which will limit his fantasy potential, as you rarely ever see two top-20 receivers and a top-10 tight end on one single team. He's going to replace Kyle Rudolph, whose contract is set to expire after this season, and while he'll be a solid player, it's hard to see him being any more than a borderline starter in fantasy.

Irv Smith Jr. selected No. 50 by Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have selected former Alabama TE Irv Smith Jr. with the 50th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

It’s an exciting move for a Vikings team that already features a talented receiving tandem of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Smith Jr. is a solid blocker and excellent receiver, especially after the catch. Minnesota upgraded its offensive line in Round 1, and Kirk Cousins now has another dangerous weapon at his disposal. Smith Jr. is the heir to veteran Kyle Rudolph as the next great Vikings TE.
