2019 Outlook: Kyle Rudolph

For three consecutive years, Rudolph has produced just enough stats to finish in the top-10 among tight ends in all formats. And for three years, he's done it in an inconsistent, frustrating way. Rudolph has recorded seven-plus Fantasy points (non-PPR) in 18 of his last 47 games. He's typically needed a touchdown to come through for Fantasy managers as he has just two games in his eight-year career with over 70 yards and no scores. He's among the handful of tight ends who will play a bunch but still not warrant a start every single week. His early-season matchups against the Falcons, Packers and Raiders aren't horrible, so if you're strictly looking for a tight end to press into rosters to stream, go ahead. But with a fat new contract extension in his back pocket and rookie tight end Irv Smith Jr. joining him on the field, don't expect much to change with Rudolph's production.
