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.

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.
