  • Rudolph had five receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in Sunday's win over Washington. Rudolph continues to get a steady share of targets with Case Keenum at quarterback, but that hasn't translated into many yards or touchdowns. He has seven targets or more in each of the past five games, but has just 27 receptions for 199 yards and two touchdowns over that span.

  • Rudolph had six receptions for 27 yards, including a four-yard touchdown, on seven targets in Sunday's win over the Browns. Rudolph appears to be building a rapport with Case Keenum as he has five or more receptions in each of the last four games. Rudolph's touchdown catch is a positive sign, as his red-zone usage has decreased this season. He did not have a target within five yards of the end zone before Sunday after eight last year.

  • Rudolph had five receptions for 43 yards on seven targets in Sunday's win over Baltimore. Rudolph had a productive game, but has just two touchdown receptions this season. He appears to be developing a better rapport with starter Case Keenum as he has had seven or more targets in three consecutive games after failing to get more than six in each of his first four games.

  • Rudolph brought in five of nine targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Packers. Rudolph checked in behind only Adam Thielen in targets and drew even with Jerick McKinnon in receptions on the afternoon. After causing some concern for fantasy owners with just three receptions on six targets in Weeks 3 and 4, the 27-year-old has been the recipient of 18 looks over the subsequent pair of contests. He's parlayed those opportunities into 11 catches for 92 yards and a score, putting him back on the tight end radar. He'll look to continue bouncing back versus the Ravens in Week 7.

  • Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Just two receptions in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudolph had two receptions for 34 yards on four targets in Sunday's loss to Detroit. Rudolph has had a disappointing start to the season with just 3.8 targets per game though four games after averaging 5.2 targets per game last season. Rudolph hasn't had the same chemistry with Case Keenum as Sam Bradford last season and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have been more of a focus of the offense. However, the nature of the offense could change with Dalvin Cook out for the season with a torn ACL, so Rudolph could become more of a primary target again.
