MIN TE Irv Smith Jr. - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Chicago Bears
We expect the Vikings to play their backups in this game with nothing to play for, and it's not clear where Irv Smith Jr. falls into that. He's technically second-string, but he is a big part of their offense, playing in at least 60% of their offensive snaps since Week 8. Even if he does play, he hasn't been a solid receiving threat in 2019. We'd avoid playing him against the Bears.
