  • 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: Scores touchdown Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudolph had six receptions for 45 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown, on nine targets in Monday's 20-17 win at Chicago. Rudolph had his best game of the season as he had a combined 13 targets in his previous four games. The Bears limited Minnesota's down-field passing to receivers, which led to more opportunities for Rudolph over the middle. If defenses continue to focus on Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs after their early success, Monday's game could become a trend for Rudolph.

  • 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.

  • Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Held to one catch Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudolph brought in one of two targets for four yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers. The sure-handed tight end hasn't quite been himself over the first three weeks of the 2017 campaign, as he now has just eight catches over that span. Rudolph's reception and yardage total Sunday were his lowest since Week 8 of last season, while his target share was his lowest since Week 17 of 2015. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have gobbled up 49 targets between them over the first three contests, while a renewed focus on the running game due to the early success of rookie Dalvin Cook has also affected Rudolph's overall opportunities. Given his established role within the Minnesota offense, Rudolph figures to still retain an important role in the Vikings passing attack, even if it isn't to the extent of previous seasons. He'll look to boost his production against the Lions in Week 4.

  • Rudolph caught four of six targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 26-9 loss to the Steelers. Rudolph led the team in receiving yardage and tied for the lead in targets, but a lackluster passing display by Case Keenum limited his upside. Despite some struggles in this one, Rudolph actually managed to improve upon his Week 1 totals, though he wasn't able to reach the end zone. The big tight end should remain one of the most heavily-targeted Vikings regardless of who is under center, though it appears his potential weekly output will remain relatively modest. He will face off with the Buccaneers defense next week.
