2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 2013 fifth-rounder, King barely saw the field during his first four seasons but finally got the opportunity to see consistent offensive playing time with the Giants in 2017 – though it took a rash of injuries for that to happen. After New York passed on retaining him as a restricted free agent, the Georgia product now finds himself on a Vikings team that has at least one or two roster spots open for the taking. King has just as good of chance as any to claim a spot, but he may need to impress on special teams to do so. Read Past Outlooks

The Vikings released King (leg) off injured reserve Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
King reverted to IR when he cleared waivers on Aug. 31 and is now free to explore other opportunities, health permitting. The fourth-year receiver has 22 receptions for 240 yards and three touchdowns in his career.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2013
King has a shot to make the roster after catching a touchdown in the team's playoff loss to the Packers last year. He's got only average size, though, and he'll be 27 in July, so there's not much upside for him playing behind Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard.

King, a fifth-round pick by the Broncos, will compete for a roster spot in training camp as a vertical passing threat.
