Summary

Kyle Rudolph finished the 2016 season as the 3rd ranked fantasy tight end. He did so quietly and posted the best numbers of his career at 83/840/7. The chemistry between Bradford and Rudolph was real as he was targeted 132 times which is far and above more than any other year in Rudolph's 6 year career. Rudolph is a big time red zone target for Bradford and with Bradford having to dive into the Vikings offense with such a short learning curve he instantly had a connection with his TE and continued it through out the season.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph improving as a blocker (Sun Jun 18, 12:17 PM) - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph is doing a better job as a blocker, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Our View: That's going to help the offense, but you don't get fantasy points for blocking. Rudolph should continue as a check down favorite of QB Sam Bradford, and that elevates his fantasy value. Last year, Rudolph was quietly the no3 tight end in fantasy football with a final stat line of 83 catches, 840 yards and seven touchdowns. Projecting him for 75 or more catches is reasonable, and that keeps his value in the TE1 range. You can get him at TE9 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues currently.
