Vikings | Kyle Rudolph misses practice

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:26:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: MarQueis Gray and Rhett Ellison likely will handle the tight end duties while Rudolph is out of the lineup. Owners should not consider either player until they can show they can have a role in the passing game.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph could avoid IR

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 11:20:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) could return in time to avoid going on the short-term Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a shallow league, you can probably get away with dumping Rudolph right now. In his absence, MarQueis Gray could be Minnesota's most fantasy-friendly tight end. Hold off on inserting him into your FantasyScore lineup until we know more about the situation, though.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: This may come down to a game time decision, but if Rudolph can play, he is worth the cost of $6,600 in FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph limited

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:50:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for the severity of his new injury, but the fact that he was limited early in the week is a good sign that he'll be fine for Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints and their atrocious defense. Rudolph ($6,600) is a decent FantasyScore play.
