    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Season-high 106 yards and touchdown

    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.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Drops easy touchdown catch

    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.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Quiet again in win over Rams

    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.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Quiet once again versus Bears

    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.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Third touchdown catch

    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.

    Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph held to seven yards in Week 4 loss to Broncos

    Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught two passes off of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's loss to Denver. Rudolph is second on the team with 14 catches on 22 targets, ranking 13th among league tight ends in both categories. Rudolph has thus far failed to deliver on the promise of his 2012 season and with the Vikings apparently set on making Adrian Peterson the bread and butter of their offense again, is not being featured heavily enough to warrant a weekly start.

    Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph connects for two catches in Week 3 win

    Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had two receptions for 14 yards and was targeted five times in Sunday's win over San Diego. Rudolph's five targets were a team high, so he's still perhaps Teddy Bridgewater's top target in the passing game. However, Bridgewater threw just 24 passes with Adrian Peterson having a strong game running the ball. Rudolph will likely be a boom-or-bust fantasy producer since he'll be a big threat in the red zone, but may not get many passes thrown his way in a run-focused offense.

    Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph nabs TD in win over Lions

    Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph nabbed five catches on seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Detroit. Rudolph scored his touchdown on a five-yard out-and-in out of the right slot. Through two weeks, Rudolph leads the Vikings in targets and receptions with 14 and 10, respectively. Though the Vikings appear to be set to be a power-running team, Rudolph should maintain value as a short-yardage and red-zone target.

    Vikings' Zimmer: Kyle Rudolph 'feels great'

    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said tight end Kyle Rudolph "feels great," according to ESPN. Zimmer saw his tight end last week, and was encouraged by Rudolph's progress. Rudolph was limited at the beginning of the year after hernia surgery, and then missed time late in the season due to ankle and knee issues. Rudolph has already stated that his goal for 2015 is to put his injuries behind him. Rudolph hauled in 24 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns last year.

    Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph wants to put injury-prone seasons behind

    Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press he is hoping to ditch the injury-prone tag next season. Rudolph signed a five-year, $40 million extension in August, but played just seven games last season due to early-season sports hernia surgery and knee and ankle injuries late in the year. He finished with 24 grabs for 231 yards and two touchdowns. He has played only two full football seasons in the past six during his time at Minnesota and Notre Dame. Rudolph is in California working on his strength and conditioning for next season. "I'd like to think no one in the league works harder than I do to stay healthy and take care of my body, but the bottom line is I haven't been, and the only way to get rid of those questions is to play 16 games," Rudolph said. "The only thing I know how to do is to keep fighting to put the injuries behind me and be healthy every Sunday. I know when that happens, all those questions will be put to bed and I can continue working toward being one of the best tight ends in the game."
