Vikings | Kyle Rudolph studying video

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 23:50:03 -0700

Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.

Fantasy Tip: If Rudolph takes time like this to look at how Turner operates his offense, that's a good sign. The team's quarterback situation will determine how the receivers fare in 2014, but if the passing game excels and uses the tight end more often then Rudolph could bear watching.

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:55:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has slimmed down this offseason, dropping about 15 pounds.

"Nothing really changes, because you make up for it with the workouts, but when I really focused on eating lean meats, eating the salads, you see the results."

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph likely to see bigger role

Sat, 25 Jan 2014 19:13:21 -0800

Beat writer Ben Goessling expects Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph to see a bigger role in the offense under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who has made stars out of former Dallas Cowboys TE Jay Novacek, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates and Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron. The team might flex Rudolph out and let him work through the midde of the defense.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph might emerge as a Top 10 fantasy option at his position if the team gets solid quarterback play, and Turner does in fact lean upon Rudolph more heavily than he was used by the old coaching regime.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph quiet in Week 14

Mon, 10 Dec 2012 16:15:02 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had zero catches in the team's Week 14 win, and he was targeted just two times by QB Christian Ponder. It's the third game this year that Rudolph hasn't recorded a reception, although he leads the team with eight touchdowns and is second with 45 catches. Head coach Leslie Frazier said the team's focus is to continue to look at Rudolph, though. "It wasn't like we weren't looking for him," Frazier said. "They did a good job of covering him. Kyle's been a big part of our pass offense throughout the season and we won today without him having any catches. If you had told me that would be the case, I would have said, 'That's not going to happen because we're going to target him and he's going to have catches.'"
