If you've looked at Rudolph's box scores this year, I'm sorry. It's rather ugly for someone who was considered a locked-in as a top-eight tight end pick by most analysts (full disclosure, I had him at TE9). He's now gone five straight games with 41 yards or less and hasn't scored a touchdown since way back in Week 3. He's not getting targeted a lot, but he's still someone who can score two touchdowns at any time, and the Bears might be a good match for him. They allow just 6.38 yards per target to the position (ranks 5th-lowest), but they've allowed a touchdown every 11.0 targets to tight ends (6th-most often). They've allowed touchdowns to five different tight ends this year, even though they've yet to allow one more than 49 yards. Rudolph is what he is at this point, a streaming option, and though he's touchdown-dependent, this might be a week where he gets one.

Kyle Rudolph posts 28 yards in Week 9

Kyle Rudolph had two receptions for 28 yards on two targets during the Vikings 24-9 win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph was initially awarded a touchdown on an apparent fumble at the goal line by Latavius Murray but it was later ruled that Murray broke the plane for the score. Rudolph hasn't scored since Week 3 and is only a marginal TE option in fantasy leagues. He can be dropped during his bye week to scoop up another TE if needed.
