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.

Kyle Rudolph nowhere to be found on MNF

Kyle Rudolph brought in one of two targets for seven yards in the Vikings’ 23-10 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

That's three games in a row without a score, and Rudolph's outlook is a bit concerning. He experienced a mid-season renaissance with six touchdowns scored from Weeks 7-13, though he's fallen off the face of the earth in Weeks 14-16. He gets a quality matchup with Detroit in Week 17, though he's a highly-volatile option for that game.

Kyle Rudolph catches three passes in win

Kyle Rudolph brought in all three of his targets for 48 yards in the Vikings’ 39-10 victory over the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph had an uneventful afternoon, though he finished behind only Stefon Diggs (76) for team lead in receiving. Rudolph has now gone back-to-back games without a touchdown after an impressive mid-season run, and he'll be tough to trust in Week 16 against Green Bay.

Kyle Rudolph falls back to earth in win

Kyle Rudolph caught both of his targets for 11 yards in the Vikings’ 20-7 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph's scoring streak ended at four as he fell back to earth for a pedestrian final stat line. The Vikings' passing game played it safe Sunday in the comfortable win, and Rudolph will have a chance to rebound next week against the Chargers.
