Rudolph tied Travis Kelce for the most 15+ PPR games last year (7), which is the name of the game in best ball leagues. He's going at a fraction of Kelce's price and works as a rock solid TE1 or TE2 who can help you have the best tight end scoring in your best ball league.

Summary

Kyle Rudolph finished the 2016 season as the 3rd ranked fantasy tight end. He did so quietly and posted the best numbers of his career at 83/840/7. The chemistry between Bradford and Rudolph was real as he was targeted 132 times which is far and above more than any other year in Rudolph's 6 year career. Rudolph is a big time red zone target for Bradford and with Bradford having to dive into the Vikings offense with such a short learning curve he instantly had a connection with his TE and continued it through out the season.
