  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph to be more involved?    Thu Oct 24, 12:03 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph and TE Irv Smith Jr. could be a larger part of the offense in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins with WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) sidelined. Rudolph and Smith combined for 10 grabs, 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions with Thielen out.

Footballguys view: Thielen isn't going to miss much time but the Vikings are passing the ball more in recent weeks. That automatically means more for the tight ends, including Rudolph, on the team. If there wasn't a split here at the position, Rudolph would have higher fantasy value.

  Vikings | Thursday's practice report for Minnesota    Thu Oct 10, 04:01 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Ben Gedeon (concussion), OG Josh Kline (foot) and WR Adam Thielen (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10. CB Mackensie Alexander (elbow, groin), LB Kentrell Brothers (hamstring, wrist) and C Garrett Bradbury (shoulder) were limited. DT Linval Joseph (non-injury), TE Irv Smith (quad) and DT Shamar Stephen (knee) practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Thielen should be ok by Sunday to face the woeful Eagles cornerback group, but we'll monitor this situation to be sure. If he isn't 100% going into the game, Stefon Diggs becomes a must start.

  Vikings | Irv Smith leads team in receiving yards    Sun Sep 22, 05:09 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith managed to haul in three receptions for a team-best 60 yards on three targets in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: The Vikings aren't throwing it enough to support the value of a tight end, but if a relevant player from the position is going to emerge in Minnesota, it will be the rookie, not Kyle Rudolph, who can be dropped across formats.

  Vikings | Irv Smith impressing with blocking    Thu Aug 15, 02:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings rookie TE Irv Smith has been surprising coaches with his blocking, according to assistant head coach Gary Kubiak, Thursday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Smith is a good all-around tight end, but he's had some struggles this offseason. He'll work into the mix as a reserve player behind starter Kyle Rudolph. We'll continue to monitor Smith in dynasty formats.
