Summary

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 contract details (Mon Jul 28, 12:55 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph will be guaranteed $19.4 million as part of his five-year, $36.5 million contract extension.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph signs extension (Sun Jul 27, 10:25 PM) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed TE Kyle Rudolph to a five-year extension worth $36.5 million.

Our View: A wise move by the Vikings here. Rudolph should shine even more than he has before with new offensive coordinator Norv Turner running the show. His current ADP is TE10 (8.08) in 12-team PPR leagues. Rudolph has a nose for the end zone, and he should be a favorite target of Teddy Bridgewater for years to come.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph drops some weight (Sat Jul 26, 08:41 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph lost some weight this offseason in hopes of being able to get open more often in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's offensive scheme.

Our View: Turner is a great OC, and Rudolph could flourish this year. Fantasy owners who miss out on one of the top-5 tight ends could consider Rudolph later in the draft.
