Vikings | Kyle Rudolph due for poor outing?

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 21:25:50 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph finished with 106 yards and a touchdown in Week 11, but since 2013, he has never finished with eight or more fantasy points in standard scoring in back-to-back games.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is the poster child for inconsistency, and history says that expecting him to build on last week's big performance is a recipe for disappointment.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph shines in loss

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 18:32:29 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had six catches for a season-high 106 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph hadn't topped 30 yards in a game since the opener, and nearly doubled his season total in one game. He has the physical tools to deliver big numbers on a routine basis, but there is no guarantee he will continue to produce.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph headed for quiet week?

Sat, 07 Nov 2015 21:09:43 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph faces the St. Louis Rams in Week 9, and the Rams have allowed just one touchdown to opposing tight ends this season.

Fantasy Tip: Considering Rudolph ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) derives a majority of his value from touchdowns, he is a very risky play at FantasyScore against the Rams.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph blocking more

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 06:59:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has been used to block more since OT T.J. Clemmings is a rookie at right tackle, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. According to ESPN Stats and Information, he's been targeted on only 18.1% of his pass routes, which makes him the 22nd-most-frequently targeted tight end in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) faces a Chicago Bears team that has limited tight ends the past three weeks. Rudolph could be a low-end option on FantasyScore, but his usage doesn't give him much upside.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph does very little

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 19:43:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had just two catches for seven yards in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: It was a terribly disappointing day for Rudolph ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) and his FantasyScore players. He has been too inconsistent to trust in FantasyScore right now.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph struggles against Detroit

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 18:38:49 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph faces the Detroit Lions in Week 2, and in six career meetings with Detroit, Rudolph is averaging 34.5 receiving yards and has one total touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Minnesota's offense didn't perform well in Week 1, and his history versus Detroit makes Rudolph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) a risky play at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph has mediocre night

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 23:05:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five receptions for 53 yards in the Week 1 loss against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) had a rare drop in this game, or his statistics might have been a little bit better. He is an intriguing FantasyScore option heading into Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph poised for big Week 1?

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 20:43:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph faces the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Sept. 12, and the 49ers allowed nine touchdowns and 848 yards to opposing tight ends last year.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have hindered his development, but Rudolph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has plenty of upside facing a San Francisco defense that lost several key contributors in the offseason. He could make a solid low-priced option at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph working out

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:07:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has implemented more stretching, flexibility and yoga into his routine this offseason after taking six weeks off when the season ended.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph dealt with an ankle injury late last season, and he's dealt with injuries in seasons past. He seems to be making a more concerted effort to stay healthy this year. If he can stay on the field, he has potential to produce TE1 numbers.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with teammates

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:23:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working out in California with Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph, RB Jerick McKinnon, WR Charles Johnson and TE Brandon Bostick. McKinnon and Rudolph are rooming together at Rudolph's Newport Beach, Calif., home and are taking a no-nonsense approach to their training. Rudolph organized the group event.

Fantasy Tip: The chemistry-building possibilities are encouraging, but any fantasy advice to be gleaned from this situation is realistically useless without knowing the fate of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. The offense goes as he does.
