Vikings | Kyle Rudolph gobbles up two scores

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:30:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph scored both of the Vikings' receiving touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 23, catching four passes for 63 yards in total.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph nearly doubled his touchdowns just in this game; he had only caught three on the season. There hasn't been enough love to go around between Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but Rudolph made his catches matter today. He'll remain a TE1 play as long as he's healthy.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph totals 58 yards

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:43:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph hauled in five receptions for 58 yards on seven targets in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph remains a top-notch fantasy option, especially in PPR formats, with five or more receptions in six consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 12 against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph racks up five balls

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:52:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: The catch total was nice, and he is always a strong PPR fantasy option. However, he isn't as valuable in standard leagues, especially when he doesn't find the end zone. The Vikings host the Rams in Week 12.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph catches TD pass

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 10:06:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught six passes for 27 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has caught at least five passes in each of the last four games but has not posted more than 50 yards in any game this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end most weeks because of the number of targets he receives in the passing game.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph catches five passes

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:02:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught five passes for 43 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has recorded 16 catches on 25 targets over the last three games and has been more involved in the passing game since Stefon Diggs was sidelined. He will be a solid No. 1 tight end against the Cleveland Browns next week.

Vikings | Five grabs for Kyle Rudolph

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:21:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five catches for 47 yards on nine targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph remains a solid low-end TE1 in all fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats. While he failed to find the end zone, he has posted 11 catches over the past two games. The Vikings host the Ravens in Week 7, a team which has struggled to contain tight ends this season.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph logs season highs on MNF

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 23:21:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph recorded six catches on nine targets for 51 receiving yards and a touchdown Monday, Oct. 9, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Both the reception and target totals were season highs for the 27-year-old tight end, as he also managed to score his second touchdown of the campaign. While he's capable of having a dud on any given week, Rudolph is a decent lower-end TE1 to trot out in most formats.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph held to one catch

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:07:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass for four yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was targeted only twice in the game but may still be working on his chemistry with Case Keenum. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end against the New York Giants this week but could also be benched if owners have better options.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph finishes with 45 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:34:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught four passes for 45 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was a reliable target for Case Keenum during game but probably would have had a better day if Sam Bradford played. Rudolph can be a No. 1 tight end against certain opponents, but his value will drop if Keenum starts.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph nabs touchdown in opener

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 22:05:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph reeled in all three of his targets for 26 yards in the season opener Monday, Sept. 11, versus the New Orleans Saints, also adding a touchdown reception in the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was able to salvage his night with that touchdown score, but that's certainly fewer than the anticipated number of targets that owners were expecting. In fact, he played in just two games last season in which he received less than four balls thrown his way. In any event, Rudolph will have mostly higher-volume games coming up as one of Sam Bradford's most-trusted weapons.
