From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Rudolph, like the rest of the Vikings offense, sorely missed Sam Bradford in Week 2. He'll be back to startable as long as Bradford is back, but that depends on how Bradford's knee responds over the course of the year.

Week 3: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All TE vs TB

FBG says: matchup.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs PIT (6 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)

Kyle Rudolph had one of the top catches of the night as well as the longest play from scrimmage for the Vikings. The big tight end worked up the seam and found some space between the linebacker and safety. Case Keenum was again hit on his throw and the ball sailed high. Rudolph leaped with one hand and was able to tip the ball to himself for a big gain. Outside of this catch, the big tight end was very quiet today. The entire offensive game plan was thrown off when Sam Bradford was ruled out and it threw everyone off their game.

2017 Week 1 vs NO (3 / 3 / 26 / 1 rec)

Rudolph looks to be the Vikings number one threat in the redzone as the big tight end has proven to be able to catch the ball in traffic. Bradford went to Rudolph late from the 15-yard line to put the Vikings back up by two scores late in this one. Rudolph ran a perfect post route to make a catch over the middle for the Vikings third touchdown of the night. Bradford also used Rudolph in third and long situations to sustain drives and keep the Vikings offense on the field. Rudolph did not have a big yardage total but did throw a key block in Dalvin Cook's 33-yard scamper in the second half.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph says he is healthy (Thu Sep 7, 02:09 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (leg) said he is completely recovered from the leg injury that sidelined him for part of the preseason.

Our View: He's healthy and reportedly looking better as a blocker in 2017. Rudolph caught over 80 passes last year as Sam Bradford's favorite target, and he's got low-end TE1 value if he's able to do that again this year.
