    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Catches one pass in playoff loss

    Rudolph caught a 24-yard pass on his lone target in Sunday's loss to Seattle. Rudolph became less and less of a fixture in the Viking offense down the stretch, being targeted a mere seven times over his last four contests including the playoffs. Part of his lack of production can be attributed to a run-heavy approach to the offense that saw quarterback Teddy Bridgewater average just 22 passes per game in that final stretch, although it is important to note that Rudolph was third on the team in targets and led the team in receiving touchdowns with five. Although he didn't post the kind of numbers that he did in his breakout 2012 campaign, it's encouraging that Rudolph was able to play in all 17 games this year after a pair of seasons derailed by injury. At just 26 years of age, Rudolph still may have some of his best days ahead of him if he's able to stay healthy and Bridgewater continues to progress as a passer.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Only draws one target

    Rudolph was only targeted once and didn't catch any passes in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Packers. With Teddy Bridgewater completing just 10 of 19 passes for 99 yards, no Minnesota player had more than four targets, three receptions or 33 receiving yards, with running back Jerrick McKinnon leading the team in all three categories. Bridgewater will presumably need to throw more often in a first-round matchup with Seattle, but efficiency could be a major problem against one of the league's toughest defenses. Rudolph caught just three passes for 13 yards on four targets in a 38-7 loss to the Seahawks back in Week 13.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Catches fifth touchdown of season

    Rudolph caught two passes for 53 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Sunday's 49-17 win over the Giants. After failing to haul in any of Teddy Bridgewater's four touchdown passes the previous week, Rudolph caught the only one in Sunday's blowout victory. He's been an effective weapon for the young signal-caller this season, but Minnesota's preference for a run-heavy approach has led to a bunch of empty stat lines. Rudolph did have his best game of the season against his Week 17 opponent, burning the Packes for 6-106-1 (on nine targets) back in Week 11.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Just two receptions

    Rudolph had just two receptions for 21 yards in Sunday's win over Chicago. Rudolph had 50 receiving yards in three of his last four games, but he was less involved Sunday despite Teddy Bridgewater throwing four touchdown passes. Rudolph should return to being one of Bridgewater's top targets the final two games.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Catches six passes on six targets

    Rudolph caught all six of his targets for 67 yards in Thursday's 23-20 loss to the Cardinals. Rudolph topped 50 receiving yards for a third time in the last four weeks, after doing so just once in his first nine games of the season. Although he's skilled enough to do this on a regular basis, it would be unwise to count on such a thing actually happening, as the Vikings deploy a run-heavy offense that spreads targets around. Adrian Peterson should be busy in a Week 15 matchup with the Bears.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Held to 13 yards against Seattle

    Rudolph was targeted four times in Sunday's loss to Seattle, tallying three catches for 13 yards. Rudolph's performance on Sunday snapped his best two-game stretch of the season, during which he caught 13 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown. After seeing six or more targets just twice during the season's first nine games, Rudolph has emerged as a go-to target in Minnesota, besting team-leading receiver Stefon Diggs in targets 23 to 19 over the past three weeks. Still, Minnesota's terrible passing offense makes it difficult to consider Rudolph worth a starting spot. For the season, Rudolph ranks tied for 15th among tight ends in receptions, 22nd in yards and tied for seventh in touchdowns.

    Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Leads Vikings in receiving in win over Falcons

    Rudolph hauled in seven of his 10 targets for 53 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons. The big tight end led the team in targets, yards and receptions Sunday, accounting for nearly a third of the team's receiving yardage as the rushing attack took center stage. Rudolph has seen a noticeable uptick in usage over the last two games, but the inconsistent nature of the Vikings' passing game makes him difficult to trust on a weekly basis. Rudolph will look to keep his strong recent run of form alive when the Seahawks come to town in Week 13.

    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.
