Player Notes

Minnesota Vikings tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr. should both be considered starters going into the 2020 season, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. Rosenthal considers them both as starters over No. 3 receiver OlaBisi Johnson because each tight end played more than 600 offensive snaps in 2019. Smith was the youngest player taken in last year's draft, and he still impressed in his rookie season with 36 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games (seven starts). He won't turn 22 until August and is a breakout candidate despite fighting for targets with Rudolph. Even though Minnesota is a run-first squad, someone will have to make up for the absence of Stefon Diggs in the passing game. Draft Smith as an upside TE2.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith should see an increased role in the offense in 2020 now that Stefon Diggs is playing for the Bills. When wide receiver Adam Thielen was out for almost two months with an injury last year, Smith caught 36 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns and emerged as a reliable target for quarterback Kirk Cousins. Minnesota's offense also relies heavily on tight ends under coach Gary Kubiak; tight ends have received an average of 23 percent of targets per season in Kubiak's 21 seasons as a head coach or offensive coordinator. Even battling for targets with Kyle Rudolph, Smith could become worth rostering as a TE2 in standard leagues in his second season in the NFL.
