Ihmir Smith-Marsette
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Smith-Marsette, a 2021 fifth-round pick, will compete for the third or fourth receiver role in Minnesota this summer. He played both inside and outside receiver as a four-year starter at Iowa, and his 4.43 40 time indicates he has top-end speed and quickness after the catch. Smith-Marsette is a sleeper for a larger role because his speed could add a needed element to the Vikings' passing game. Read Past Outlooks
