Kyle Rudolph Off The Fantasy Radar

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph will go up against a Colts Defense in Week 2 that allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to tight ends in 2019. Rudolph caught only two passes for 28 yards in the opener and really has faded into the background on offense the past few seasons. Rudolph posted only 367 yards in 2019 and no longer is a featured player in the Vikings passing attack. The veteran tight end is not fantasy viable as a TE1 heading into Week 2.

Is Kyle Rudolph Draftable?

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph enters his 10th NFL season with 47 career touchdowns, including six last season. The veteran has been a steady presence throughout his Vikings tenure but caught only 39 passes for 367 yards last season. It was a down season after averaging 68 receptions with 668.6 yards and just over six touchdowns the previous three seasons. Rudolph currently sits at 28 among tight ends per's rankings, so don't expect him to be selected in drafts. But Rudolph could have DFS value early on and, if he bounces back in 2020, could become a waiver wire gem at some point.

Kyle Rudolph Quiet In Defeat

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had a tough ending to his season as he caught just two of three targets for four yards in the 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Rudolph's low volume was a product of the Vikings' inability to get anything going all day as the 49ers Defense held Kirk Cousins to just 172 passing yards. Rudolph had a few weeks of production driven by touchdowns during Adam Thielen's absences, but he took a big step back in catches (39) and receiving yardage (367) this season. He doesn't get enough volume to be an exciting fantasy option and his prospects don't look great next year with Irv Smith Jr. looking to take another step and the team still being dedicated to the run.
