WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Tavarres King | Vikings WR

The Vikings signed wide receiver Tavarres King.

King spent the last two seasons with the Giants, and he played well when given opportunities last season—including a two-touchdown performance against the Eagles in Week 15. The 28-year-old receiver gives Minnesota more depth to one of the league's most talented rosters, but he probably won't make a big fantasy impact in 2018.

Tavarres King scores twice against Philadelphia.

The Giants threw a ton of slant passes against the Eagles in this one, which set up some double move opportunities—one of which King capitalized on for a touchdown; and the other score came on a slant that he took 57 yards for a touchdown, diving for the end zone at the end of the catch-and-run. King caught two of three targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns overall in the game. This was the best performance of the year for King, and he'll look to keep it going next week against the Cardinals. But it's difficult to trust him in fantasy lineups, especially with the chance of Patrick Peterson being matched up with him for some of the game.

Tavarres King gets nine targets in Week 13.

King's nine targets were a team-high, but he had only 23 yards on his four receptions. Perhaps Geno Smith likes looking King's way, but he's still not a recommended fantasy option in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Tavarres King catches three passes in Week 11.

King gained 48 yards on his three receptions (five targets). He's extremely risky in fantasy lineups, but King gets the Redskins next.

Tavarres King | Vikings WR

Tavarres King caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.

He also rushed once for 11 yards. King should stay on the waiver wire heading into a matchup with the Chiefs.

Tavarres King | Vikings WR

Tavarres King scores in blowout loss.

It was a five-yard pass in the first quarter to tie things up at seven, but the Rams ended up dismantling the Giants by a score of 51-17. King finished with three receptions for 33 yards and the score. He can remain on the waiver wire.

Tavarres King | Vikings WR

Tavarres King gets two touches against the Seahawks.

He had a one-yard reception and a -8-yard carry. King is not a fantasy option yet, though it could change at some point this season.

Tavarres King | Vikings WR

Tavarres King catches one pass against Denver.

King was targeted three times, gaining seven yards on his one reception. He should have some good weeks moving forward, but next week in Seattle is a risky bet.
