Signs with Vikings

Mundt signed a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday.

Analysis: Mundt appeared in six games with the Rams in 2021 and played a minimal role, hauling in his lone target for nine yards. He sustained a torn ACL in mid-October but will compete for a depth role with the Vikings when healthy.

Returned to IR

Mundt (knee) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and returned to injured reserve.

Analysis: The tight end entered COVID protocols Dec. 15 before being reinstated Thursday. Mundt will still remain on IR for the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in mid-October.

Lands on COVID-19 list

Mundt (knee) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Mundt was already ruled out for the season after he suffered a torn ACL in mid-October, but he'll need to spend some time away from the team. While it's not yet clear whether the tight end has tested positive for COVID-19, his absence shouldn't significantly impact his timetable as he recovers from his knee injury.

Placed on IR

Mundt (knee) was moved to injured reserve Tuesday after suffering a season ending torn ACL on Sunday.

Analysis: The season is over for the 26-year-old, who will finish the season with just one catch for nine yard. He was used as a depth option at tight end this season behind Tyler Higbee, who will continue to garner the lion's share of action at the position moving forward.

Done for year

Mundt will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after suffering an ACL injury that will require surgery, J.B. Long of the Los Angeles Rams Radio Network reports.

Analysis: Mundt suffered the injury during Sunday's blowout victory over the Giants, and it'll cost him the rest of the season. He'll finish 2021 with one catch for nine yards on one target over six games.

Downgraded to out

Mundt (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Giants, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Mundt picked up a knee injury, and it seems the issue is serious enough to rule him out for the remainder of this contest. Expect Tyler Higbee to see most of the offensive snaps at tight end, while Jacob Harris could take Mundt's place as a blocker.

Dealing with knee injury

Mundt (knee) is questionable to return Sunday at the Giants, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

Analysis: It remains to be seen if Mundt returns to the game, though his absence might not have a big effect on the Rams' game plan for this one. Expect Tyler Higbee to see most of the offensive snaps at tight end, while Jacob Harris could take Mundt's place as a blocker.

Avoids injury designation

Mundt (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Mundt came out of Sunday's win over the 49ers with a shoulder injury, but he was able to put in a full practice Wednesday and avoid the questionable tag. The 26-year-old primarily works as a blocker and has one catch for nine yards through the first four games of 2021.

Grabs first catch of season

Mundt had a nine-yard reception during Sunday's 37-20 loss to Arizona.

Analysis: Primarily deployed as a blocker, Mundt's fantasy value is limited. He's caught just 10 passes through his five-year career, after all. Additionally, even if No. 1 tight end Tyler Higbee were to miss time, it's unlikely Mundt would emerge as a consistent contributor in the passing attack.

Oct 5, 2021 5:08 AM EST


Re-signs with Rams

The Rams signed Mundt to a one-year deal on Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Mundt, who's spent the past four seasons in Los Angeles primarily serving as a blocking tight end, caught all four of his targets for 53 yards in 2020. It will likely take a few injuries for the 26-year-old to play a larger role in the team's passing plans, but Mundt will aim to continue seeing more playing time in 2021.

Another quiet campaign

Mundt caught all four of his targets for 53 yards during the 2020 regular season. He played just 121 offensive snaps.

Analysis: The fourth-year tight end has been deployed primarily in a blocking role throughout his tenure with the Rams, and that's unlikely to change if he returns to the organization next season. Mundt is a restricted free agent this offseason.

Jan 29, 2021 4:49 PM EST


No targets in Week 11

Mundt didn't receive a target in Monday's 27-24 win over the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Mundt achieved fantasy relevance once this year with Tyler Higbee out of the lineup in Week 7, as he caught three passes for 48 yards. When Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active, however, Mundt has averaged just 4.7 snaps on offense per game. His main contributions will be delivered on special teams moving forward.

Grabs all three targets

Mundt caught all three of his targets for 47 yards during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears. He played 46 of 72 offensive snaps.

Analysis: With Tyler Higbee (hand) out of the lineup, Mundt took advantage of an extended role, and his 34-yard reception in the second quarter was the longest offensive play of the game for the Rams. However, fellow tight end Gerald Everett was targeted a season-high five times, scored a touchdown and will probably remain more involved in the passing game. If Higbee returns in Week 8 against the Dolphins, Mundt will likely revert back to a depth role and receive limited playing time.

Oct 27, 2020 5:55 AM EST


Catches first pass of 2020

Mundt played 11 offensive snaps and caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants.

Analysis: This is only the sixth career reception for the fourth-year tight end, so fantasy managers should continue to look elsewhere for production at the position. Mundt has carved out a blocking role for the Rams, but he's still playing sparingly with just 22 offensive snaps through four games.

Oct 5, 2020 6:15 AM EST


Staying in LA

Mundt will remain with the Rams after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent Tuesday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was primarily used as a blocker in the offense for the Rams in 2019, hauling in four passes for 26 yards. Through 13 games, he saw 367 total snaps across offense and special teams, and Mundt was only targeted seven times. He'll likely continue his depth tight end role for the Rams in 2020.

Mar 17, 2020 3:43 PM EST


Makes four catches in 2019

Mundt hauled in four of seven targets for 26 scoreless yards over 13 games in 2019.

Analysis: Mundt played more than expected since Gerald Everett battled a knee injury and missed three games, but he was mainly used as a run-blocker. The 25-year-old ran a route on 49.4 percent of his snaps, and with many skilled pass-catchers, it's not surprising that he was targeted sparingly. Mundt will be an exclusive-rights free agent in March.

Jan 8, 2020 3:59 PM EST


Hauls in two passes

Mundt caught two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Despite Gerald Everett (knee) sitting out, Mundt played just 11 offensive snaps and was targeted on just three of Jared Goff's 51 passes. The large deficit didn't allow a run-blocker like Mundt much tread, and the 25-year-old could see a further decrease in usage if Everett is back for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.

Dec 17, 2019 1:09 PM EST


Gearing up Sunday

Mundt (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Analysis: Mundt's rarely used on offense, and even when he is, it's mainly in a blocking role while Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee garner receiving work. Even with both Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal) inactive, Mundt figures to stay out of fantasy relevancy.

Nov 17, 2019 4:09 PM EST


Questionable for Week 11

Mundt (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Analysis: Mundt appeared on the injury report mid-week with the issue but has put in two limited practices to close it out. He logged his first catch of the season Week 10, and with Gerald Everett (wrist) and Tyler Higbee (knee) also questionable, the 24-year-old could be looking at a few extra snaps Sunday.

Nov 15, 2019 3:51 PM EST


Dealing with groin injury

Mundt was a limited practice participant Thursday due to a groin injury, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Mundt was listed on the injury report Wednesday, so he appears to have picked up the injury at practice. Gerald Everett (wrist) was also limited and Tyler Higbee (knee) didn't practice, leaving the Rams without any healthy tight ends.
