Arif Hasan of The Athletic says Vikings TE Irv Smith Jr. has been 'quietly effective' throughout camp. "Based on camp performances thus far, there should be every reason to think his performance takes a jump this year," wrote Hasan.
Smith Jr. has seen his fantasy stock rise throughout the offseason. Hasan's report is tangible reporting that confirms a lot of fantasy research done stating Smith Jr. should see his stats and offensive impact rise. It is now time to consider picking him above ADP if you want to use the second-year TE in season-long fantasy football.
