Rudolph hasn't been able to get much going yet in 2017, though he did find the end zone in Week 1. After leading all tight ends in targets last season, he's seen just nine targets so far in 2017. He draws a fairly neutral matchup in Week 3 against the Bucs, who ranked middle of the pack both in terms of receptions and fantasy points allowed to tight ends in 2016. If Sam Bradford plays, then Rudolph will be, as he always is in those circumstances, a solid TE1. If Case Keenum remains under center, then Rudolph's value takes a bit of a hit. But Keenum targeted Rudolph six times last week, and that volume alone keeps him in the TE1 range regardless of his quarterback.

I'll likely lower Rudolph a bit if Bradford can't go.

Tampa Bay held the Bear's tight ends in check last week, they have a tougher matchup this week. Rudolph should find the end zone, provided that QB Sam Bradford is able to play this week.
