Kyle Rudolph catches touchdown pass against Eagles

Kyle Rudolph caught one of four targets for 25 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph caught the 25-yard touchdown pass on the Vikings' opening drive, but was entirely shut down the rest of the way. He managed to catch eight touchdowns during the regular season, but totaled just 532 yards receiving, as he battled through injuries down the stretch. He should again be one of the more valuable tight ends in fantasy next season.

Kyle Rudolph with 28 yards receiving against Saints

Kyle Rudolph caught five of eight targets for 28 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph appeared fully healthy, but just didn't find much production in a very difficult matchup against New Orleans. The eight targets were a great sign, however, and he should be in line for a bigger day next weekend against the Eagles if he sees a similar volume.

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) practicing in full

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is practicing in full ahead of Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph's sprained ankle has caused some struggles down the stretch but he's had time and a bye week to get healthier. He can certainly be a difference-maker when healthy and is second only to Jimmy Graham in touchdowns for TEs in 2017.

Kyle Rudolph with just one catch against the Bears

Kyle Rudolph had just one reception for three yards on Sunday against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph closed out his season with four receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown over his final three games, hardly what fantasy owners had come to expect. With another week to rest his injured ankle, expect him to have better production in the playoffs when the Vikings get going again in the divisional round.

Kyle Rudolph with just one catch against the Packers

Kyle Rudolph caught his lone target for six yards on Saturday against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

This was obviously an incredibly disappointing performance for Rudolph, coming off four straight games with a touchdown. The frigid temperatures in Green Bay just held the entire Vikings offense in check. He should bounce back next weekend against Chicago.
