Vikings | Kyle Rudolph sheds ankle cast

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 11:50:34 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) expects to be ready by June after having the cast removed from his surgically repaired right ankle Thursday, March 8.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph underwent surgery two weeks ago and remains in a walking boot, but the injury that limited him near the end of the season should be a non-issue by the time training camp rolls around. Presumably looking at an upgrade at quarterback, Rudolph could be poised for a run at 10 receiving touchdowns for the first time in his career in 2018.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph recovering from surgery

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 14:53:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) said Tuesday, Feb. 28, that he underwent surgery to repair the injured right ankle which affected him at the end of the 2017 season. "I knew it was inevitable to have it fixed," he said in a radio interview. "That's what the offseason is for. The glamorous life of the NFL offseason. You roll around on a scooter."

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was affected down the stretch by the injury he suffered on Dec. 10, but he failed to miss an NFL game for the third consecutive season. He remains a top-tier fantasy tight end heading into the 2018 season, especially for his good work in the red zone.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five grabs for 28 yards on eight targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph spotted in walking boot

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 10:49:52 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) played only 28 snaps in a Week 17 victory over the Chicago Bears and was in a walking boot after the game.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has been playing on a sprained ankle for three weeks, so the Vikings' bye week during wild-card weekend comes at a great time for him. With Minnesota among the favorites to make the Super Bowl, a healthy Rudolph could be among the more popular tight ends in non-DFS playoff leagues.
