Vikings | Kyle Rudolph on track to play

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:17:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph should receive a decent amount of targets in Week 3 but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Vikings | No limitations for Kyle Rudolph

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:00:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: A matchup with a stingy Carolina defense will cap Rudolph's upside in Week 3. At best, he is a low-end TE1 in 12-team leagues.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph limited

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:20:28 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph should be able to play in Week 3, but owners may want to keep an eye on him for the rest of the week to see if anything changes. He has caught seven passes for 96 yards and one touchdown this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Both players should only be of interest to fantasy players in deeper leagues at this point.

Vikings | Three more Vikings have full practice

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:53:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot, fibula), WR Charles Johnson (quadriceps) and TE Kyle Rudolph (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon needs to continue to warm the bench on fantasy rosters. Rudolph is a sneaky sleeper play as Bradford could look for a safety valve and more high percentage throws in his first start with his new team. Johnson was practically a no show last week and should not be started.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph takes part in practice

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 15:10:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had a solid outing in Week 1 with four catches and 65 yards. He should continue to be a main target in the passing game and can be a low-end No. 1 tight in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph loses his signal caller

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:37:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph will be catching his passes for QB Shaun Hill instead of QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has very little fantasy appeal as it is, but now he is undraftable even in the deepest of fantasy formats despite a miraculous renaissance by both he and Hill.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not lacking confidence

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 18:56:57 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said he feels he is the best all-around tight end in the NFL, and he added that the position is about more than catching passes and running routes.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Rudolph's abilities as a blocker don't impact his fantasy value. He is a touchdown-dependent option and best suited as a fantasy backup.

Vikings | Bridgewater, Kyle Rudolph connecting

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 17:30:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said he and TE Kyle Rudolph talk about how they can improve when they're not on the field. Bridgewater also said Rudolph studies the plays from a quarterback's perspective. The young quarterback has learned to trust his tight end more, too, and Bridgewater has counted on Rudolph to come through.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a developed connection and better rapport, Bridgewater and Rudolph are both backups in their respective positions from a fantasy perspective.
