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.

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.

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.

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.
