  • Rudolph's teammate Irv Smith (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Carolina. Rudolph had season highs for targets (five), catches (four) and yards (63) when Smith missed a Week 10 contest against Chicago with the same groin injury. The veteran tight end also handled a season-high 78 percent snap share in that game, though it wasn't much of a change from his usual range in the high-60s to mid-70s. He's still not a top TE option by any means, but there's at least some streaming appeal with Smith out of the lineup, and Rudolph could get another volume boost if Adam Thielen (reserve/COVID-19) isn't cleared to play.

  • Rudolph had three receptions for 28 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to Dallas. Rudolph played more snaps (45) on offense than Irv Smith(33), but he went on just 17 routes compared to 21 for Smith. Both tight ends get only a minor portion of the targets with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson commanding almost all the activity in the passing game. However, the passing attack may need to diversify the targets if Thielen misses time this week after landing on the COVID-19 list.

  • Rudolph caught four of five targets for 63 yards but lost a fumble in Monday night's 19-13 win over the Bears. Rudolph began the game by coughing up the ball following a 12-yard reception, marking the first lost fumble of his 10-year career. The veteran responded in fine fashion, however, accumulating a season high in receiving yards. Of course, Rudolph did so with fellow tight end Irv Smith (groin) sidelined Monday, so if the second-year pro remains out in Week 11 versus the Cowboys, Rudolph may enjoy another uptick in his output.

  • Rudolph could see additional targets after Irv Smith (groin) was ruled out ahead of Monday's prime-time affair against the Bears. Rudolph was already starting to get more involved in the offense after seeing season highs in targets in two of the last three weeks, but Saturday's designation all but confirms the veteran tight end will play a pivotal role in the offense. The Bears have been surprisingly mundane when it comes to stopping opposing tight ends, making this a bit of an intriguing option for fantasy managers that might be desperate for tight end production.

  • Rudolph secured three of his four targets for 40 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-20 win against the Lions. The two-time Pro Bowl tight end has experienced an uptick in passing game usage of late, collecting 40-plus receiving yards over two of his past three outings. Rudolph didn't exceed 30 receiving yards in any of his first five appearances of 2020, averaging a meager 1.4 catches and 15.2 receiving yards per game during that span. As Minnesota has picked up its collective offensive act with 28 or more points each of the past two weeks against Green Bay and Detroit, Rudolph may progress into a deep-league streaming option at a largely sparse tight end position.
