Rudolph may not have had the impact many expected week one in terms of number of catches and yards. But, the good news is that he got a score and will continue to be in the Norv Turner tight end centered offense. I expect top 10 numbers in week two.
Bennett snagged eight catches on 10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Bills week one. He draws a tough matchup week two against the 49ers, but I still see him as a low TE1 (with a chance at a possible touchdown).

Rudolph didn't see the target load we hoped for in his first game in Norv Turner's offense (four, with two catches) but his end zone look is a definite plus.

Should see a decent uptick in targets with Marshall and Jeffery both looking very questionable.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Rudolph is dependent on touchdowns in order to be fantasy relevant, but the Patriots do not have a dominant tight end defense.
Bennett does have TE1 appeal, as the Bears will have to target him a ton with WR Brandon Marshall and WR Alshon Jeffery likely to miss this week.
