Player Outlook
Mundt is someone to keep an eye on in training camp in case he opens the season as the starting tight end in Minnesota with T.J. Hockenson (knee) hurt. Depending on how long Hockenson is out, if he misses any time, then Mundt could be someone to add off the waiver wire in deeper leagues. First, Mundt must fend off Josh Oliver and Robert Tonyan for the No. 2 tight end job. Then, Mundt will have to prove he has a rapport with new quarterback J.J. McCarthy or Sam Darnold. We don't have high expectations for Mundt even if Hockenson is out, but this could be a productive role in a high-powered passing game. There is some sleeper appeal for Mundt if Hockenson misses extended action early in the year.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Re-signs with Minnesota

    The Vikings agreed to terms with Mundt on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Mundt seems to have found a home in Minnesota after spending the first four years of his career with the Rams. In his two seasons with the Vikings, the 29-year-old has appeared in 34 games and put up 312 receiving yards, catching 36 of his 44 targets. Expect Mundt to continue serving as a depth piece in Minnesota's tight end room in 2024.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Catches 17 passes for Minnesota

    Mundt appeared in all 17 games during the 2023 season, catching 17 of 23 targets for 172 yards and one touchdown. The targets and yards were new career bests for the 29-year-old veteran tight end. Mundt was mostly tasked with blocking duties on his 223 offensive snaps, but he did see extended pass-catching opportunities and playing time over the final two-and-a-half games of the season following T.J. Hockenson's season-ending torn ACL. Mundt posted 4-39-1 and 5-58-0 receiving lines on a combined 13 targets Weeks 17 and 18. He's scheduled to become a free agent in March after spending the last two seasons with the Vikings following five with the Rams.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    In his first game replacing T.J. Hockenson, tight end Johnny Mundt ran a route on 92% of Nick Mullens' dropbacks and saw a target on 18.2% of those. That's not so bad, plus he caught 3 of 4 targets for 30 yards and a score. Mundt might be touchdown-needy, but at least he figures to run a bunch of routes and could end up finishing second on the team in targets behind Justin Jefferson. Over the last four weeks the Lions have let up 13.9 yards per catch and 7.2 YAC/reception to tight ends, both ranking in the bottom-three in the league. If you're desperate for tight end help, consider Mundt over the likes of Tucker Kraft, Tyler Conklin, Pat Freiermuth and in PPR, Taysom Hill.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    In the first game without T.J. Hockenson (knee) in Week 17 against Green Bay, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. He should remain the lead tight end for the Vikings in Week 18 at Detroit, and he can be used as a low-end starter in all leagues. We'll see who starts at quarterback for Minnesota, but Mundt should still be a viable target in this matchup with the Lions.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Increased role in loss

    Mundt had four receptions for 39 yards, including a six-yard touchdown, on seven targets in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. Mundt saw an increased role in the passing game with T.J. Hockenson out for the season with a knee injury. While Josh Oliver started at tight end, Mundt played more snaps and went out on more routes. Mundt played on 41 of the offense's 53 snaps and went out on 32 routes, while Oliver logged 24 snaps and ran eight routes. The former's usage should make him a factor in the offense next week at Detroit regardless of who starts at QB for Minnesota.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Increased role with Hockenson hurt

    Mundt had one reception for 23 yards on three targets in Sunday's 30-24 loss to Detroit. Mundt played a season-high 22 snaps on offense as he got more playing time after T.J. Hockenson suffered a knee injury. Mundt and Josh Oliver could see increased targets if Hockenson and Jordan Addison (ankle) remain sidelined with injuries.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Nabs first catch since Week 10

    Mundt played five of the Vikings' 72 snaps on offense in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Raiders, finishing with one catch for four yards. The reception was Mundt's sixth of the season and his first since Week 10. Mundt retains a regular role on special teams and typically gets a handful of snaps on offense in two-tight-end sets, but he's unlikely to see enough involvement in the passing game to attain fantasy relevance so long as T.J. Hockenson or Josh Oliver are available for a given game.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Just one catch so far this season

    Mundt went without a target across seven snaps on offense Sunday in the Vikings' 19-13 win over the Bears. Mundt recorded an 11-yard reception in the Vikings' Week 5 loss to the Chiefs for his first catch of the season, but quarterback Kirk Cousins didn't look the tight end's way during his limited time on the field Sunday. As the third-string option at the position who often serves as a blocker when he plays, Mundt is far removed from the fantasy radar.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Limited role on offense

    Mundt played on five of the offense's 64 snaps in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay and was not targeted in the passing game. Mundt had 19 receptions on 21 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown last season, but he had a much more limited role with the acquisition of Josh Oliver to be the team's primary blocking tight end. Mundt won't be a factor in the passing game unless there are several injuries to the pass-catching corps.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Short-yardage receiver in 2022

    Mundt caught 19 of 21 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown while playing in all 17 games during the 2022 regular season. Mundt saw by far the most extensive playing time of his career after following Vikings first-year coach Kevin O'Connell to Minnesota this past offseason. The 28-year-old tight end also accumulated more receptions and receiving yards than he did over the first six seasons of his career with the Rams. Mundt still finished the season in a reserve role behind prolific receiving tight end T.J. Hockenson, who was acquired via trade from Detroit midway through the season. With 2019 second-round pick Irv Smith currently set to become a free agent this offseason, Mundt could be in line to serve as Minnesota's No. 2 tight end in 2023.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Earns catch Sunday

    Mundt caught his only target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Jets. Mundt operated as the team's No. 2 tight end behind T.J. Hockenson, seeing the field for 24 snaps on offense. It was the 28-year-old's third consecutive game with a reception. He'll likely play a similar role Week 14 against the Lions.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Minimal role with new TE

    Mundt had one reception for one yard in Sunday's win at Washington. Mundt played 15 snaps on offense and went out on four routes. T.J. Hockenson had nine receptions and played on 60 snaps, so Mundt didn't see any short-term bump in playing time while Hockenson got acclimated to his new team. Mundt will have a limited, primarily blocking, role with Hockenson in the fold.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: TD catch in win

    Mundt had a one-yard touchdown reception on his only target in Sunday's win over Arizona. It was just Mundt's fifth target in his last three games (five receptions for seven yards during that stretch). He's been an afterthought in the passing game once Irv Smith got up to full speed after the first few games after a preseason thumb injury. However, Mundt could be pressed into a larger role with Smith now likely out several weeks with an ankle injury. Still, Mundt's role may not increase too much, as he's not seen as skilled as a receiver.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Has drop on only target

    Mundt had a drop on his only target in Sunday's win over New Orleans in London. Mundt played just 20 snaps on offense and went out on just five routes, as his role has shrunk with Irv Smith back to full speed after preseason injuries.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Two receptions Sunday

    Mundt had two receptions for 23 yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Detroit. Mundt wasn't on the field as a starter like the previous two games and played fewer snaps than Irv Smith, Jr. (37 to 28). Mundt will remain part of the offense but won't get more than a few targets per game.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Gets start at TE in season opener

    Mundt had three receptions for 17 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Green Bay. He started at tight end with Irv Smith coming off the bench because Smith was eased into action, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. It was Mundt's fourth career start, but he could see a reduced role if Smith returns to full speed Week 2. However, there's no guarantee Smith will get back to his prior form after missing 2021 with a knee injury and working his way back from an Aug. 2 thumb issue that required surgery.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Feels great after opener

    Mundt felt great after the Vikings' preseason opener and did not suffer any setbacks, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Mundt is in line to compete with the likes of Ben Ellefson, Zach Davidson, Nick Muse and Shaun Beyer for the team's No. 2 tight end role behind Irv Smith. As of now, he appears to have completely moved on from the torn ACL he suffered last October.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Moves past knee issue

    As training camp opened, Mundt saw work as the second tight end when the Vikings opted to go with two in practice, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports. Mundt is thus past the knee issue that limited him in OTAs, and the former Ram will now look to secure a depth role in a Minnesota tight end corps that is led by Irv Smith and also includes Ben Ellefson, Zach Davidson and Nick Muse. In six games with Los Angeles last season, Mundt caught his only target for nine yards. In his new locale, the 27-year-old figures to continue to make most of his impact as a blocker.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: On track for training camp

    Mundt (knee) has been working on the side during OTAs but believes he'll be ready to go by training camp in late July, Chris Tomasson of reports. Mundt was deployed almost exclusively as a blocker during his five years in Los Angeles before the Vikings signed him as a backup to Irv Smith this offseason. His path to targets in 2022 isn't clear barring an injury to Smith, and even then Minnesota probably would prefer to throw the ball to Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen or Dalvin Cook underneath.

  • Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Signs with Vikings

    Mundt (knee) signed a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday. Mundt appeared in six games with the Rams in 2021, serving mostly as a depth tight end while hauling in his lone target for nine yards. He sustained a torn ACL in mid-October, so he'll likely be sidelined for the entirety of the Vikings' offseason program. Mundt could be ready to go at some point in training camp, but for the moment, his availability for the start of the 2022 campaign is muddled.
