Minnesota Vikings TE John Carlson had seven catches for 98 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 10 victory over the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 7, his best performance for the team. TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) is expected to be out four to six weeks with a fractured left foot.
Fantasy Tip: Carlson's value is on the rise with Rudolph out. He becomes a moderately intriguing backup for the tight end desperate owners. The uncertain QB situation in Minnesota doesn't help Carlson's cause.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) has a fractured foot and could miss as much as a month.
Fantasy Tip: John Carlson likely will take over as the starting tight end while Rudolph is out. Carlson probably will only have minimal value in deeper leagues.

Sun, 27 Jan 2013 18:09:32 -0800
Minnesota Vikings TE John Carlson (knee) struggled to get involved in the passing game in his first season in Minnesota, and that is supposed to be his strength. He received $7.9 million in the first year of his deal (including deferred payments) and would have $1.2 million of his $2.9 million base salary for 2013 fully guaranteed if he's on the roster when the league year begins. The team might give him another chance if he is healthy, but nothing is certain after a disappointing 2012 season.
