Detroit is 21st against fantasy tight ends this year, he is a borderline TE1 in a good matchup. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Rudolph has seen a consistent volume of both targets and receptions for the last several weeks, and he's received seven targets and either five or six receptions in each of the past four weeks. But his yardage totals remain pedestrian, as he's on pace for just 586 yards receiving. The Lions are tough on opposing tight ends, allowing the third-fewest receptions to the position. But Rudolph's volume keeps him as a borderline option on Thanksgiving.
