Fantasy analysis: The Vikings have Visanthe Shiancoe entering the final year of his deal and felt it was time to build for the future. Rudolph is an impressive receiver with a downfield presence. He has Jason Witten potential in the passing game and should develop with first-round quarterback Christian Ponder.
Look for Rudolph to be worked in slowly this year, so it's unlikely that he will have any fantasy value without a Shiancoe injury. It's tough for keeper leaguers to stash a tight end for a year, but if you have room, Rudolph is your guy.
