Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Hardly a factor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph caught two of five targets for seven yards in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks.

Rudolph has seen his role within Minnesota's offense decline this season, but Monday marked a new low for the tight end. It was the first time he's failed to top 10 yards this year, but in his defense, the Vikings offense as a whole did very little prior to its final drive. Regardless, the veteran will be eager to improve in Week 15 versus the Dolphins.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Just three targets Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph had three receptions for 38 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss at New England.

So much for the idea that he'd become a bigger part of the passing offense after last week's season-high seven targets as Rudolph wasn't a big factor even with the Vikings playing from behind most of the game. His weekly fantasy upside still seems to hinge on whether he reaches the end zone.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Posts best outing since Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph reeled in all seven of his targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers.

The reception count matched Rudolph's season high in the category, while the yardage total was his second-best effort. While the outing amounted to a positive step forward for the tight end, it's worth noting that he had tallied only 13 receptions for 133 yards over the previous five games. His weekly fantasy upside still seems to hinge on whether he reaches the end zone.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Another quiet game as receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph corralled two of his five targets for 13 yards in the Vikings' 25-20 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Through quarterback Kirk Cousins is averaging 40.9 attempts per game this season -- an appreciable uptick from the 32.9 the team averaged in 2017 -- Rudolph hasn't benefited from much added volume in the passing game. The tight end is currently on pace for 58 receptions and 579 receiving yards over a 16-game schedule, both of which barely edge out last season's marks in both categories. Perhaps more frustrating for fantasy managers than Rudolph's meager increase in overall involvement is that he's reached the end zone just twice through 10 games after scoring eight times a season ago. Both of his touchdowns came in the first three weeks, though Rudolph's six total red-zone looks over the subsequent seven games suggest he hasn't completely been an afterthought near the goal line.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Quiet sans Diggs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph caught both of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Lions.

Owners hoping to see the tight end more involved without wide receiver Stefon Diggs (ribs) were left disappointed, as quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for a season-low 164 yards. After scoring 15 touchdowns over the previous two seasons, Rudolph heads into the Week 10 bye with just 34 catches for 349 yards and two scores.
