Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle), who has had five surgeries in the last 10 years, was taking part in organized team activities this week after having offseason surgery on his severely sprained right ankle. It has given Rudolph a chance to work with new quarterback Kirk Cousins, which is a good thing. New offensive coordinator John DeFilippo has a history of being good for a tight end's numbers, so Rudolph is excited about the upcoming season. Rudolph is mainly a midrange touchdown-dependent TE1, but it won't hurt that he's seeing an upgrade at the quarterback position. Hopefully he can stay healthy this year.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) had his cast removed Thursday and expects to be ready by June. Barring a setback, Rudolph should be all systems go for training camp this summer. He had 57 catches for 532 yards and matched a team high with eight touchdown catches in 16 games. Rudolph's numbers tailed off down the stretch as he fought through his ankle issue. He remains a low-end, touchdown-dependent TE1, but an upgrade to possibly Kirk Cousins at quarterback in the offseason would certainly help his outlook.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) underwent surgery to fix his right ankle after the season. He initially injured the ankle on Dec. 10 but didn't miss a game for the third straight season. Rudolph was tied for the team lead with eight touchdowns in 2017, and he accumulated 57 catches for 532 yards. One of Minnesota's best red-zone weapons, Rudolph has become a touchdown-dependent TE1 for fantasy owners, although his stock would rise significantly if the Vikes wind up landing Washington Redskins impending free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. Rudolph should be fine for training camp.
