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.

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 09:46:44 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph's status for Week 16 is uncertain because of the injuries, so owners should continue to watch the situation.

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.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not 100%

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.

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:31:49 -0800

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) is listed as probable for Week 13.

Vikings | Full practice for Kyle Rudolph

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:21:12 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had three catches (five targets) for 50 yards in his second game back from injury. That's encouraging, and he should continue to be a bigger part of the offense down the stretch. More good news: the Carolina Panthers have been especially vulnerable to tight ends recently. Consider Rudolph as a sleeper option at his position at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph used sparingly

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:29:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) was eased back into action in the team's Week 11 loss to the Chicago Bears, playing just 14 snaps (30 percent of the offensive plays). Rudolph was on the field less than TEs Rhett Ellison (51 percent of snaps) and Chase Ford (47 percent). Rudolph also wasn't targeted at all in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was a giant letdown for those that chose to start him immediately upon his return. The Vikings could continue to ease him back in next week, meaning he's probably not the smartest option as your tight end play.

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 08:42:00 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has missed most of the season because of the injury, but will be back in the lineup and should have a role in the passing game. Rudolph only costs $3,600 on FantasyScore and could be a nice sleeper for owners to use.

Vikings | Limited practice for Kyle Rudolph

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 14:18:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The team is hopeful that Rudolph can return to play against the Chicago Bears this weekend, and it's a good sign that he practiced, albeit limited, in the first official practice of the week. If Rudolph plays, it's hard to go wrong with his $3,600 FantasyScore salary against a very vulnerable Bears defense.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph does some work

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:55:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was able to do some things during practice Monday, Nov. 10, and the team hopes he will be able to return to the field in the near future, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has not played since Week 3 but appears to be track to return in the near future. Owners will need to see if he is able to practice this week or have a chance to play in Week 11. He may not be a starting option right away since it may take him a few weeks to knock off the rust.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph wants to return in Week 11

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 16:06:54 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) is eyeing Nov. 16 versus the Chicago Bears for his return. Rudolph said he needs to get himself in football shape and said mentally he's given himself two weeks to get ready.

Fantasy Tip: Whether Rudolph actually plays in two weeks is another story, but the team is on a bye this week. When Rudolph does return it might be best to keep off starting him until he proves he can produce again.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph aiming for Week 11

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 18:27:50 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) said his goal is to return after the team's Week 10 bye.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph didn't have much chance to become acclimated to Norv Turner's system before being sidelined, but he could make an impact when he returns. Turner's system is traditionally kind to tight ends, and Rudolph could serve as a security blanket for rookie Teddy Bridgewater. If he hits his Week 11 goal, Rudolph will have a solid matchup against the struggling Chicago Bears in his return.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) stretched with the team Wednesday, Oct. 22, and did some running on the side.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph could avoid IR

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 11:20:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) could return in time to avoid going on the short-term Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.
