News: 6 days agoConklin caught all three of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Packers.
Spin: Conklin fell back down to earth following his two-touchdown game in Week 10, finishing fifth in targets among Minnesota receiving options. The 25-year-old is still the clear-cut starter for the Vikings and has provided deep-league value with 388 yards and three touchdowns through 10 contests. Conklin will have his work cut out for him against the 49ers' athletic coverage linebackers next Sunday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Conklin is the top tight end in Minnesota with Irv Smith Jr. out for the season. There's some sleeper appeal here considering he out-targeted Smith 22-20 during the final four weeks of 2021 (Kyle Rudolph was sidelined). Consider the 26-year-old in 2-TE leagues.
