Rudolph caught 6-of-9 targets for a season-high 106 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. Rudolph caught a 47-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, and was involved throughout, easily surpassing his previous season high of 53 receiving yards in Week 1. Despite the big game, it's hard to get too excited about Rudolph, given the fact that Minnesota normally runs a ball-control offense. Next week, Rudolph will face the Falcons in Atlanta.
Rudolph had one reception for seven yards, but dropped an easy reception in the end zone while wide open in Sunday's win at Oakland. Rudolph continues to get minimal targets as he had four on Sunday and just 12 in his last four games. He does get red zone targets, which make him a boom or bust option when he can hold onto the ball.
Rudolph grabbed his only two targets for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. The quiet season continues for the fifth-year tight end, who has now eclipsed the 30-yard barrier just once in eight games. Teddy Bridgewater was lost to a concussion on Sunday, but Rudolph's production remained consistent with prior results. It is unclear if Bridgewater will miss any time, but Rudolph is unlikely to see his role change significantly either way. Minnesota will travel to Oakland in Week 10.
Rudolph snagged both of his targets and gained just 22 yards in Sunday's game against the Bears. Another quiet outing for the 25-year-old, who hasn't caught more than two balls since Week 2, totaling just 62 receiving yards in that span. Rudolph had scored a touchdown in both games since the Vikings' Week 5 bye, and he will seemingly be quite touchdown-dependent from week to week, given his low usage rate. Minnesota will host the Rams in Week 9.
Rudolph had two receptions for ten yards, including a one-yard touchdown catch, in Sunday's win over Detroit. Rudolph had a touchdown catch for a second consecutive week, but he's a boom-or-bust fantasy option as he doesn't get many balls thrown his way in the offense. Rudolph has just two catches in each of the last four games.
