The Case for a Tyler Conklin Breakout in 2021

The Vikings have a few young, exciting pieces on their roster going into the 2021 season, including Justin Jefferson, Cameron Dantzler, Irv Smith (just to name a few). However, one player that was a big part of Minnesota’s offense down the stretch feels very underrated right now. That player is Tyler Conklin.

With both Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith above him in 2020, Conklin got buried in the depth chart for a majority of the season, especially over the first 10 games or so. However, when he got time on the field, he showed flashes of great play.
