Kyle Rudolph scores in Week 3 loss

Kyle Rudolph corralled two of three targets for 11 yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 31-30 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Rudy made his obligatory circus catch in this one, hauling in a toe-tapping 11-yard strike in the back of the end zone to put Minnesota up 30-25 in the fourth quarter. Through three games, Rudolph's posted a 4/39/1 line on just six looks. He can be avoided in all but the deepest of leagues.

Kyle Rudolph held without a catch in Week 2 loss

Kyle Rudolph was held without a catch on one target in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Kirk Cousins sent the Vikings’ offense into the garbage in this one, and Rudolph drew just one target for his catch-less afternoon. He’s on pace for fewer than the meager 42 targets he drew a season ago, and if he’s not scoring, Rudolph has no business in fantasy lineups.

Kyle Rudolph catches two passes in Week 1 loss

Kyle Rudolph caught both of his targets for 28 yards in the Vikings’ 43-34 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr. combined for three receptions on three targets, and neither are worth fantasy consideration as any more than touchdown-or-bust desperation plays.

Kyle Rudolph disappears in Saturday's loss

Kyle Rudolph caught two of three targets for four yards in the Vikings’ 27-10 loss to the 49ers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing performance for Rudy, accounting for just four scoreless yards after catching the game-winning touchdown in last week's matchup with New Orleans. Despite an up-and-down season, the nine-year vet provided six touchdowns and TE1 value from Weeks 7-13, showing that he's still got some juice. With rookie Irv Smith Jr. looking to take the next step forward in his second year, Rudolph may see his role reduced in 2020.

Kyle Rudolph plays hero with game-winning touchdown

Kyle Rudolph hauled in four of seven targets for 31 yards and the game-winning touchdown in the Vikings’ 26-20 overtime victory over the Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He saw a healthy amount of targets in this one and caught arguably the biggest pass of his career with a game-sealing back-shoulder fade in the left corner of the end zone in overtime. Rudolph isn’t a threat for monster yardage, but he’s a trusted red-zone option for Kirk Cousins who always threatens to cross the end zone.
