Rudolph was a TE1 last year with low catch totals (53), but nine receiving touchdowns. He should be a TE1 against the Detroit Lions and their tight end defense that was ranked 23rd.The Cowboys were just 19th against fantasy tight ends last year and Myers figures to be prominently featured in their passing game this year.

Hate depending on touchdowns, and I'm not a Ponder believer   
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
 I may have him ranked a little too high for week 1, but he will be a rising TE by mid-season.

You know what they say about Big Hands. Big Redzone target. That is exactly what we have Rudolph heading into 2013. With the addition of Greg Jennnings, and Purple Jesus getting his 25 Touches each week, Rudolph losses his security just a little bit.Myers was great in Oakland because the QB situation was horrible in Oakland last season. With no star WR, and Darren McFadden having all the Safety/LB attention, it was all about dumping it to Brandon. While Eli Manning shows that he loves throwing to his TEs, you have to assume Hakeem Nicks is going to have a much bigger season than last, which will take away from the overall potential Myers has.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Rudy can score in any game and this one has shootout written all over it, so this could certainly be one of them.Myers should see at least 4-5 balls in a potential shootout in big D.

 Myers seems like a great fit for this offense with Manning throwing to him. I'm expecting big things from both this year.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
At this point, you are going to get what you get. The tight ends from Olsen and below certainly wonít lead you to a fantasy championships by themselves, so look to pad their mediocre play with absolute studs to make up the difference. I consider Rudolph a bye-week replacement type option.Myers is pretty yawn-stapating now that heís in NY. Eli isnít typically complementary to week-to-week stat-padding for his TEís. Myers should be seen as a bye-week replacement if youíre smart. If not Ö well Ö youíre funny like a clown!  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Laden with potential, but with two competent receivers now in town Rudolph may be even more inconsistent as long as Ponder is startingCould become household name with Eli Manning
