Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr (knee) and CB Jabari Price (hamstring) both did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and are doubtful for Week 14. TE Rhett Ellison (ankle), TE Chase Ford (hamstring, foot) and DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) all were limited in practice and are probable.

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.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:00:13 -0700
Minnesota Vikings TE Rhett Ellison played 41 offensive snaps in the team's Week 5 game, while TE Chase Ford played 30 snaps. TE MarQueis Gray was on the field for nine offensive snaps.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:04:04 -0700
Minnesota Vikings TEs Rhett Ellison and MarQueis Gray are likely to pick up the slack at the tight end position with TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) out at least six weeks. Gray saw most of the work in passing situations in Week 3 after Rudolph came out. The team could also promote TE Chase Ford to the active roster.
Fantasy Tip: Gray is likely to make the bigger fantasy impact, and he has familiarity with offensive coordinator Norv Turner from their time in Cleveland. Gray will be a very cheap option at FantasyScore, but you'd likely be better off looking elsewhere.
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:24:52 -0700
The Minnesota Vikings might keep TEs Allen Reisner and Rhett Ellison on the 53-man roster behind starter TE Kyle Rudolph. TE Chase Ford (foot) did not play in a preseason game, and is projected to not make the cut.
Sat, 14 Dec 2013 09:12:12 -0800
Minnesota Vikings TE Rhett Ellison will start at tight end Week 15 because TE John Carlson (concussion) still has not been cleared to play.
