Summary

Rudolph has struggled to stay healthy over the past two years only playing in 17 games combined in that time frame. When healthy and on the field he is a huge asset for the Vikings offense and even more so now with Teddy Bridgewater starting a new chapter in Minnesota. The Vikings are trying to build a steady offense and if Rudolph can stay on the field for a full 16 game season he can help open up the running game, passing game and be a huge problem for defenses when the Vikings are in the redzone. If you combine his past two seasons together (17 games) he had a 54/544/5 statline which would be good for a top 10 TE numbers. (May 16)

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph working out (Thu Jul 23, 04:07 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has implemented more stretching, flexibility and yoga into his routine this offseason after taking six weeks off when the season ended.

Our View: Rudolph just needs to stay healthy in order to star at the pro level. Over the past two years, he's only played in 17 games combined. You can snare him as a TE2 in your fantasy draft, but Rudolph has TE1 upside if he's healthy.
