Summary

Kyle Rudolph played a full 16 game season for only the second time in his 5 year career in 2015. He also had a personal best in receiving yards with 495 and added 49 receptions and 5 touchdowns. Although the Vikings have some nice depth at the Tight End position with Mycole Pruitt and Rhett Ellison, the starting role belongs to Rudolph and he has potential to continue to develop a strong relationship with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Rudolph is not a top ten TE fantasy option but he is a key player in the Vikings offense as a whole. If both Stefon Diggs and Laquon Treadwell can step up in the WR roles the passing game could very well open up more for Teddy Bridgewater and Kyle Rudolph will likely benefit with more open looks down the field.
