Kyle Rudolph retires from NFL

Kyle Rudolph is retiring from the NFL after playing 12 seasons.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph spent the majority of his career as an above-average tight end on the Vikings, and now he's hanging it up after an impressive 12-year career. He most recently played for the Buccaneers, but he was unsigned this offseason, so his retirement won't leave an impact on any roster ahead of the season starting in just a few days.

Kyle Rudolph inactive for Week 2

Kyle Rudolph is inactive for Week 2 against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph is inactive for the second consecutive week. The Buccaneers decided to add a practice squad wide receiver to provide them some much needed depth Sunday with Julio Jones and Chris Godwin inactive. Rudolph can safely be left on the waiver wire.

Kyle Rudolph inactive Week 1 vs. Cowboys

Kyle Rudolph is officially inactive for Tampa Bay’s Week 1 game against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph is a no-go for Week 1 meaning Cameron Brate should see the lion’s share of tight end snaps for Tampa Bay. Brate should see plenty of action with Rudolph out and Gronk no longer in his way. Rudolph’s next chance to suit up will come Week 2 against the Saints.

Kyle Rudolph agrees to deal with Buccaneers

Free agent tight end Kyle Rudolph has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph has garnered interest from a few teams this off-season, but he will choose to land with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers were in need of help at the position following the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, and the former Viking should help to fill that void. For fantasy purposes, he could be an interesting deep sleeper, but he won't project to get a ton of work in this offense.

Kyle Rudolph garnering interest from multiple teams ahead of training camp

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, free agent TE Kyle Rudolph is receiving interest from “multiple teams”, including the Buccaneers and Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph, who was released by the New York Giants earlier this offseason, will be entering his 12th training camp in a few weeks if he signs with a new team. Drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, Rudolph has had varying degrees of fantasy success throughout a remarkably healthy 11-year career, having finished as a TE1 four times but finishing as a TE3 or worse four times as well. Rudolph, who will be playing at 32 years old this season, hasn’t offered fantasy relevancy since 2019, and that’s unlikely to change in 2022 regardless of where he signs. Currently ranked as the TE58 in FantasyPros ECR for PPR formats, Rudolph isn’t a player who needs to be rostered at this point in his career, even in the deepest formats.
