WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Tyler Conklin | Jets TE

The Jets are signing Tyler Conklin, according to NFL Network.

Conklin joins C.J. Uzomah as the new tandem at tight end for New York, which eliminates a potential need for them on Day 2 of the draft. The Jets will now have more of a focus on rounding out the receiving corps for Zach Wilson, but Conklin should see quite a bit of playing time in 12 personnel.

Tyler Conklin (knee) is officially questionable to return for the Vikings.

Conklin was injured going up for a ball in the end zone, and he limped over to the sideline. We'll update you when more information becomes available on his status.

Tyler Conklin leads the Vikings in Week 15 receiving.

Conklin caught two passes for 53 yards against the Dolphins, with his receptions going for 33 and 20 yards. Conklin isn't a recommended fantasy option, but it's good to see him do some damage through the air.

Tyler Conklin catches one pass against the Seahawks.

Conklin gained 11 yards on his lone Week 14 reception, as he caught pass from an on-the-run Kirk Cousins. It came a play after Conklin had a bad drop, so it was good to see him immediately put a bad play behind him and bounce back. The rookie tight end isn't a fantasy option at the moment.

Tyler Conklin catches one pass against the Niners.

Conklin gained six yards on his lone reception (one target) in the Week 1 victory for Minnesota. Conklin is not a fantasy option at the moment.

The Vikings have selected Central Michigan tight end Tyler Conklin with the 157th pick (fifth round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Conklin is a solid, all-around tight end with a game similar to Kyle Rudolph, so it's easy to see why Minnesota took him in the fifth round. He has a chance to immediately step in right behind Rudolph on the depth chart, but again, tight ends rarely put up significant numbers in the box score as a rookie. There are probably better options to target at the position in dynasty leagues.
