2018 Fantasy Outlook
Morgan played a mix of offense and special teams (where he also filled in at long snapper), never exceeding three targets in a contest. Kyle Rudolph will continue to handle the bulk of the load at tight end for the foreseeable future, so Morgan's role will be small as the No 2 tight end. However, his role in the passing game may increase and he could have viable fantasy value if Rudolph is injured. Read Past Outlooks

Quiet 2018 season

January 18, 2019
Morgan caught five passes for 36 yards in 11 games this season.
ANALYSIS
Morgan saw all of his production come within his first four games as he missed four midseason games due to a knee issue, only to receive no targets upon his return. The 25-year-old has 16 career receptions for 135 yards and one touchdown in 38 games. He's under contract for one more season with the Vikings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The 2016 sixth-round pick out of UTSA made the Vikings' final roster as a rookie, but Morgan caught just one pass for four yards throughout 12 games played. MyCole Pruitt was signed off the practice squad by the Bears and Rhett Ellison was lost in free agency, both of whom were originally above Morgan on the depth chart at tight end, but Minnesota added Bucky Hodges during the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. It would've been a longshot for Morgan to see many targets behind starter Kyle Rudolph in the first place, and with Hodges now in the picture as well, Morgan's fantasy value remains extremely limited.
Morgan comes into Minnesota as a sixth-rounder and 2015 second-team All-American out of UTSA, where he racked up 45 receptions for 566 yards and five touchdowns as a senior. He'll be buried on the Vikings' tight end depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph, Mycole Pruitt and Rhett Ellison given he makes the final roster, so any fantasy value will be hard to come by throughout his rookie campaign in 2016.
