Fantasy Impact: Now that Rudolph's contract situation has been taken care of he can turn his full attention to learning new Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner's offense. And considering Turner's history with tight ends Rudolph could be in for a breakout season. Beginning in the early 1990's with Jay Novacek and continuing with Antonio Gates and Jordan Cameron, Turner's offenses have consistently featured a prolific pass-catching tight end. If history continues Rudolph could be a solid TE1 and a bargain at his current ADP of 95.

Fantasy Impact: If Rudolph can stay healthy after only playing half a season a year ago, a return to his numbers of 2012 (53-493-9) isn't out of question.

Rudolph was out for a portion of the season with an injury, but his performances when healthy left at lot to be desired. He caught 30 balls for 313 yards and three scores in eight games played as the number six tight end in average draft position. He struggled as his offense kept shuffling quarterbacks. This year should be better, but I'd keep a watchful eye on his preseason performances.

He is an incredible talent but we have yet to really see him be a huge contributor from a fantasy perspective. 2014 should be the year he is usable weekly.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jul 15th
I love Rudolph's talent, but until the Vikings find him a quarterback that can throw the ball consistently, he is going to struggle to put up big fantasy numbers. Playing in Norv Turner's offense could be a big boost for his fantasy value.
