Vikings | Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:23:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph likely will not play, so owners will need to find another tight end to use. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely will see playing time in Week 16, but neither player is a great option on FantasyScore even though they both cost $3,000.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph's status for Week 16 is uncertain because of the injuries, so owners should continue to watch the situation. Rudolph has not put up great numbers since coming back from his hernia surgery. Rudolph costs $5,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using another option at the position.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not on the field

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:58:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($5,300) probably won't be fully healthy for the final two games of the season, but the fact that he caught seven passes (seven targets) for 69 yards last week should be noted. He's a midrange tight end option at FantasyScore this week against the Miami Dolphins.

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 07:20:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) disclosed he had both hips operated on during hernia surgery earlier in the season and admitted he won't be 100% the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had a season-high seven catches for 69 yards in Week 15. Rudolph ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) is a suspect TE1 on FantasyScore and more of a matchup play.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph a full participant

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:30:53 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($5,500) scored his second touchdown of the year last weekend, and he'll be more involved in the offense down the stretch as he returns to full health. Also working in his favor this week is the fact that the Jets allow the second most average fantasy points (10.94) to tight ends this year. Consider Rudolph a nice sleeper tight end at FantasyScore.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 26.
