People left the bandwagon too early on him, myself included. But when you see the chemistry between him and Sam Bradford, you should be buying in. He saw a position-high 132 targets last year, including 8.7 per game once offensive coordinator Pat Shurmer took over. Keep in mind that he finished as the No. 3 tight end, while both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs got theirs.

Kyle Rudolph saves best performance of the season for Week 17

Kyle Rudolph reeled in 11 receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' blowout victory over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph was the source of consistent productivity at the tight end position in 2016. The variance among tight ends was higher than most seasons, but Rudolph finished the season with a respectable 72 receptions for 723 yards and six touchdowns. His chemistry with quarterback Sam Bradford was undeniable in the later parts of the season, posting no less than six receptions in the team's final three games. He'll be a high-floor, low-ceiling TE1 heading into the 2017 season.
