27-Year-Old Tight EndTE
New York Jets
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Conklin was signed alongside C.J. Uzomah as the Jets restocked their tight end room this past offseason. Both players should see the field frequently, and Conklin actually had more catches (61) and yards (593) with the Vikings last year than Uzomah did with the Bengals, though Conklin scored just three touchdowns despite seeing 16 red-zone targets. A statistical decline is likely for Conklin in 2022 given the increased competition for snaps and targets in New York. Read Past Outlooks

Conklin caught two of four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. He had 58 catches on 87 targets for 552 yards and three touchdowns in 2022.
ANALYSIS
An offseason move from Minnesota to New York had a minimal impact on Conklin's stats, as he posted a near carbon copy of his 2021 campaign with the Vikings. In the first season of his three-year contract with the Jets, he had the same number of targets and touchdowns while totaling three fewer catches and 41 fewer yards than his final year in Minnesota. The 27-year-old tight end finished second on the team behind rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson in receiving yards, albeit with half of Wilson's total.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2019
2018
In his third season with the Vikings, the 2018 fifth-round pick set career highs in receptions and yards. The tight end also scored his first NFL touchdown and began to show his ability as a pass catcher near the end of the season after No. 2 TE Kyle Rudolph landed on injured reserve. Conklin had 15 receptions for 168 yards and a score over the last four games with Rudolph out. After Rudolph's release, Conklin was locked in for the No. 2 spot, which may now equate to the No. 1 assignment with starter Irv Smith requiring season-ending meniscus surgery in early September. The Vikings did trade for Chris Herndon at the end of the preseason, but he's done little to nothing since his promising rookie season in 2018. As such, Conklin could open the year in a three-down role, potentially seeing a handful of targets per week.
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 (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.
