Fantasy Football Player Notes
2020 PPR Rest of Season Rankings
(vs . DAL)
Engram is extremely talented, has one of the best rookie tight end seasons on his ledger, and is jut 25 years old. But despite all that, there are several strikes against him from a fantasy perspective. Not only has he missed 13 games the last two seasons, but he's also going to be sharing targets with Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton. He's a starting tight end for any fantasy team, but his star doesn't burn quite as bright this draft season as in previous years.
(vs . DAL)
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.
