FantasyPros
Rudolph was brought in to this offense to play a very specific role in the red zone. With his size, he can still be a factor in this area of the field and Jones will need all the help he can get. Rudolph might have some appeal as a streaming option here or there, but it's unlikely to ever be consistent enough to feel comfortable starting him any given week. He can remain on your waiver wire. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
After spending his entire career on the Vikings, Kyle Rudolph now finds himself in New York behind Evan Engram on the Giants depth chart. Barring an injury to Engram, I don't see much value in Rudolph. He is not someone worth drafting outside of super deep leagues.Ian Thomas has had more than his fair share of chances to make a name for himself and simply hasn't taken advantage of any of them. He is not someone worth drafting outside of super deep leagues.
