Vikings | Kyle Rudolph questionable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:00:42 -0800

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:31:38 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has missed the last two practices, so there is a good chance he will not be able to play in Week 17. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using him this week. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely would see playing time at tight end, but neither is a great option for owners.

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.
