He has the skills to be a top 5 tight end and looks to be coming into his own this season. I wish he had a better quarterback, but Norv Turner is good at giving tight ends production and Matt Cassel hasn't looked completely useless yet.
 
  
Raju Byfield

Kyle Rudolph could see Hawaii again if Terry Bridgewater gets the call sooner rather than later.
The ‘Black Unicorn’ Martellus Bennett remains a solid ‘wait on tight end’ option, should push for at least eight touchdowns.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Rudolph was out for a portion of the season with an injury, but his performances when healthy left at lot to be desired. This year will be better as he is now in the Norv Turner tight end dominant offense. He slimmed down and looks to now have an extra gear to slice and dice the opposing defenses. During the team's preseason game against Arizona, Rudolph caught four passes for 89 yards and one score, including a 51-yard touchdown.
He's back from a a five-day, team-imposed suspension and it looks like all is good now in Chicago. Marc Trestman's offense has greatly improved the value of Bennett, who recorded career highs in receptions, yards and fantasy points in 2013. While he is not the top option on the board in Chicago, he will get his share of looks and slots in as a low TE1/high TE2.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Playing under Norv Turner could finally unlock his potential.
Black unicorn fared well when Cutler was in lineup last year.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Could be a freak in Norval's tight end friendly system. Injuries and QB play are only reason for skepticism.
System and talent is there for him to be even better, but he should hover right around the bottom of the top 10.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
The TE position has always been a big part of Norv Turner's offense.
The Black Unicorn will be a solid low-end TE1 yet again in Coach Trestman's offense.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Everything you read on Kyle Rudolph right now is flooded with why Norv Turner will be the reason for his 2014 breakout season. It elaborates on how Turner relies heavily on Tight Ends by explaining his production with Tight Ends throughout his coaching career. In 1992, Dallas Cowboys TE, Jay Novacek caught 68 balls for 630 yards and 6 TD’s. Since that time, no other Tight End under Norv Turner’s Head Coaching/Offensive Coordinating career has a Tight End caught for more than 600 yards, until 2007?s Antonio Gates! Turner entered San Diego in Gates’ 4th season in the NFL, where he was coming off 3 consecutive seasons for 900+ yards. Norv Turner didn’t exactly mold Gates into one of the best Tight Ends in Fantasy Football History, rather he rode his hot streak. The same goes with Jordan Cameron. The Browns Tight End was poised for a breakout season being the number 2 receiving option on a team that threw the ball a league leading 681 times! We like Kyle Rudolph as a breakout candidate because of the situation he’s in. The acquisition of Norv Turner does absolutely nothing for us. Rudolph will be the Safety Valve for Rookie QB – Teddy Bridgewater. He’s an exceptional pass catcher and compliment to the raw Cordarrelle Patterson. Standing at 6’6/260, he’s a way sexier Red Zone Threat compared to the 5’11 aging 30 year old, Greg Jennings. Because of all of this, Rudolph has a great chance to lead this 2014 Vikings team in Receptions.

decent value pick at TE
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
Bennett does not put up monster numbers, due to RB Matt Forte, WR Brandon Marshall and WR Alshon Jeffery stealing so many targets, but he is a solid TE2 in this explosive offense.
