Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 We've seen tight ends have success in Jay Gruden's offense and Eifert does have one year of experience in his offense, dating all the way back to 2013. He's on his third straight one-year deal, as no team wants to commit to him. The Jaguars will be racking up the pass attempts, but last year's draft pick Josh Oliver is also likely to be involved in the offense. It's possible Eifert has streamable weeks, but he's not in the every-week consideration.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Rudolph doesn't get enough targets to be relevant for fantasy football, but he is continuously valuable on the back of touchdowns. Irv Smith's involvement in this offense could prevent even that from happening this season though. Rudolph is nothing more than a low-end TE2 this year.When looking for tight ends for fantasy football, you're either betting on pure target volume or touchdown upside. There are very few tight ends in the NFL that see enough targets to be fantasy relevant on that alone, so that leaves a lot where you're simply banking on TD production. This season, Eifert's as solid of a bet as any tight end to reel in 5 to 7 touchdowns. He's a huge presence in the red zone and he proved that he can stay healthy last season. Eifert's a solid flyer within the top-20 tight ends. The fact that he's going as TE41 currently is ridiculous.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Kyle Rudolph is trending in the wrong direction, with Irv Smith heading towards the major tight end role in Minnesota this season. While Rudolph turned 48 targets into 365 yards and 6 TDs, it's hard to see that happening again in 2020. He's a very low upside streamer who may help you in a pinch.Tyler Eifert sneakily managed to play 16 games for the first time in his career, finishing as the TE20, and somehow nobody noticed! He now moves to the tight end dead zone in Jacksonville and while I'm a big Eifert fan from way back, it's so hard to see him making anything happen behind the four Jags receivers and their two RBs that he should remain off your radar.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Rudolph scored six touchdowns last season, but overall, it was a disappointing effort from the veteran. He essentially split targets with Irv Smith Jr. (seeing just 48, his lowest since 2014), and had just 39 catches for 367 yards, both well below his usual numbers. Even without Kevin Stefanski, the Vikings are surely going to be a run-first offense once again, which will leave Rudolph searching for targets for the second straight season, well outside of TE1 consideration. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 The 2019 Jaguars targeted TEs on just 11% of pass attempts, 4th lowest rate in the league. New OC Jay Gruden's 1st 5 Washington offenses all topped 23%. Last year's hit 15.2%. @SchaufDS
