2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 fifth-round pick saw offensive snaps in every game during his rookie campaign, but Conklin only played double-digit snaps in three of those contests. Needless to say, he's likely buried in the depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and most recent second-round pick Irv Smith Jr., but it's possible the former winds up being traded or released during the lead up to the 2019 campaign. It wouldn't necessarily preclude Conklin's fantasy stardom, but were that event to occur he could wind up seeing more time as a run-blocking option considering Smith's rather diminutive frame (6-3, 242 pounds) for the position.

Finishes with eight catches in 2019
TEMinnesota Vikings
January 15, 2020
Conklin finished with eight receptions for 58 yards over 15 regular-season games in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Conklin worked as the No. 3 right end behind Kyle Rudolph and rookie Irv Smith. The 24-year-old Conklin averaged 18.4 offensive snaps per game, running routes on 67.6 percent of those snaps. Since Rudolph and Smith are both under contract in 2020, Conklin won't warrant fantasy attention heading into next season.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Conklin (6-3, 254 pounds) is yet another example of a converted basketball player whose skills translated to the gridiron. Playing tight end at Central Michigan, Conklin showed ability as both a receiver and in-line blocker during his two seasons in college and then backed up his play by posting decent testing scores at the combine – headlined by a 38-inch vertical. In Minnesota, the fifth-round rookie could eventually see action in two-TE sets, but he'll need to unseat both David Morgan and Blake Bell to do so.
