Vikings | Kyle Rudolph had career year

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:42:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had a career-high 83 catches for 840 yards, and his seven touchdowns were the most since 2012. He reached a performance escalator of $375,000 on 2018 and 2019 salaries for surpassing 80 catches. His 132 targets were the most among tight ends this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph rekindled his TE1 stature this season, and there's no reason to believe he can't build on the rapport with Sam Bradford next season. Rudolph will be a midrange TE1 option in drafts.

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.
