The Vikings lead target last season also led all tight ends in targets with 132. What's more is that he had more receiving yards than top 20 pick, Dez Bryant. It isn't as though the Vikings don't throw the ball to Rudolph in the red zone either, as he had 7 touchdowns last year. What this comes down to is that people were burned by the Barnidge breakout last season and are worried it will happen again. This gives us a great value in the 10th round or later.

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.
