Vikings | Kyle Rudolph the leading receiver

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 13:39:06 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph led the Vikings with nine catches for 64 yards in a Week 12 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: To be expected, Rudolph was targeted early and often with Stefon Diggs inactive. Unfortunately, Sam Bradford didn't throw many balls down the field, limiting Rudolph's ceiling. He's still a borderline TE1 going forward.
