 Rudolph ended as a TE1 last season despite being very unspectacular . He had only four games in a full season in which he reached 50 receiving yards. A bit less productivity can also be expected with Irv Smith being drafted.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've made it through another offseason and Olsen is still playing football. He's considered retirement multiple times, but maybe he's returning because his life is probably easier with D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel on the field? The bad news is that he's no longer the No. 1 target in the offense and he's continually losing targets to Christian McCaffrey, who set the record for receptions by a running back in 2018. Through 16 games the last two seasons, Olsen has seen a combined 76 targets, totaling 482 yards and five touchdowns. He has played through some injuries, so that's not exactly precise, but it's not far off from what you'll get out of him moving forwardAfter getting his contract extension to stay with the Vikings, it should be expected for him to remain the starter while they bring rookie Irv Smith Jr. along slowly. Rudolph may have shown up as the No. 8 fantasy tight end at year's end, but he produced top-12 type numbers in just 31.3 percent of his games, while scoring less than 7.0 PPR points in 43.8 percent of his games. With the Vikings talking about a more run-heavy approach in 2019, Rudolph's numbers will suffer even more
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
In the past two seasons Olsen has suffered two fractures and ruptured the plantar fascia, all in his right foot. In his age 34 season Olsen is of course at elevated risk to suffer another foot injury. The upside is there if you really want to take a chance late in drafts...but there are so many other TE's I'd rather take a shot on. Olsen is a pass for me.Kyle Rudolph was 6th in red zone targets among TE's last season. Unfortunately, he was only able to haul in half of those targets...and just 3 of the 15 resulted in TD's. The Vikings drafted Irv Smith this offseason, but rookie TE's never produce, and they also gave Rudolph a 4 year $36M contract...making him the 4th highest paid TE in the NFL. I expect Cousins to be better in his second season with the team, and Rudolph should be one beneficiary of this. He's going far too late in drafts and is someone I'd feel more than comfortable with as my TE 1
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Olsen thought about retiring and has some injury issues that may pop back up but his 48 reception, 517 yards, 7 touchdown pace last year would have made him the #6 fantasy tight end if he had played 16 games at that rate so there is still upside.Rudolph didn't compile quite as many fantasy points last year but he was still a top 10 fantasy tight end and actually caught more passes for more yards than in 2017. The difference was touchdown rate so don't be shocked if he bounces back for another nice season in despite Minnesota adding Irv Smith Jr.
