Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Leads inexperienced position group
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph is the only Vikings tight end with more than one career reception, Andrew Krammer of The Star Tribune reports.

Though he doesn't have the best reputation as a blocker, Rudolph is unlikely to face serious competition for snaps and targets even as the Vikings look to re-establish a competent rushing attack. They'll live with his shaky work in that department so long as he provides a major receiving threat over the middle and in the red zone. While a long shot to match last year's career-high 132 targets in an offense that now has a better mix of weapons, Rudolph should be able to take advantage of the new context by improving on his 2016 mark of 6.4 yards per target. He also figures to stay heavily involved when Minnesota approaches the goal line, after comfortably leading the team in targets in the red zone (24) and inside the 10-yard line (10) last season, with both marks doubling the next best total on the team.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Enjoys career game versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph caught 11 of 15 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Bears.

Rudolph posted career highs in targets, catches and yards in this one while finding the end zone on a 22-yard connection with Sam Bradford in the second quarter. He showed a strong rapport with Bradford after the latter was acquired just before the season and finished with personal bests in nearly every major offensive category after falling just short of his personal best with seven touchdown receptions. Rudolph has emerged as a reliable fantasy option and should enjoy another strong season in 2017 even though the team could experience some turnover on the offensive side of the ball.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Logs 53 yards Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rudolph caught six of nine targets for 53 yards Saturday against the Packers.

Rudolph saw a similar number of targets as last week but was unable to come close to matching yardage totals. Still, he remained an integral cog in the Vikings' passing attack, considering his nine targets only trailed Adam Thielen's 15. He'll look to finish the season strong in Week 17 against a Bears defense that has surrendered the sixth-least passing yards per game in 2016.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Season-high 97 yards against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rudolph turned 10 targets into eight catches for 97 yards in Sunday's 34-6 loss to the Colts.

Rudolph led the Vikings in targets and receiving yards as they took to the air often after falling behind 27-0 at halftime. The 27-year-old tight end set a season high in yards as quarterback Sam Bradford was forced to check down often. His 58 catches and 573 yards this season both represent career highs.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Scores in win over Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rudolph hauled in four of eight targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Rudolph got Minnesota's offense going early with a 44-yard gain and then capped the game off with a three-yard touchdown reception. It was all good news for Rudolph, who saw his largest gain of the season with his first reception and snapped a three-game scoreless streak with his last. His next test comes against a Colts defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in multiple categories, including receiving yards and receiving touchdowns per game allowed.
