Rudolph was on his way to a decent season last year before he was lost for the season with a foot injury. He'll be back at full strength this season and taking on a prominent role in Norv Turner's offense. Turner's offense has turned out some great fantasy tight ends in the past, and Rudolph's size and athleticism should be perfect for it. Look for Rudolph to return to his 2012 stats and make a big push for a contract extension next season. (June 8)

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph studying video (Wed Jul 9, 02:50 AM) - Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.

Our View: Everyone is excited about the Turner offense that maximized tight end fantasy value, most recently for Jordan Cameron in Cleveland last year. Rudolph has a chance to be one of the best mid-round TE picks this year, but he also had too many duds in 2012 and 2013 to feel comfortable relying on him completely out of the gate. Make sure to take a high floor #2 like Heath Miller if you grab Rudolph this year.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph slims down (Tue Jul 8, 02:55 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has slimmed down this offseason, dropping about 15 pounds. 'It was more of just a focus on my diet in February and March, versus, you are out in California, you work out every day, so you feel like you can eat whatever you want,' Rudolph said. 'Nothing really changes, because you make up for it with the workouts, but when I really focused on eating lean meats, eating the salads, you see the results.'
