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.

Conklin caught five of seven targets for 77 yards over 16 games in 2018.
Conklin saw double-digit offensive snaps in only three games this season, but capitalized Week 15 by catching two of three targets for 53 yards. The 2018 fifth-round pick out of Central Michigan will look to secure the No. 2 tight end job behind starter Kyle Rudolph heading into his first full offseason in the league.

NFL Draft: Rookie Dynasty Rankings
February 2, 2018
Even as anonymous scouts hiss the narrative that Lamar Jackson isn't a quarterback, expect the Louisville prodigy to emerge the victor.
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.
