Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's looking unlikely that Irv Smith suits up for this game, which instantly puts Rudolph into the streaming conversation. With the matchup against the Jaguars, who are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing TEs, Rudolph should be viewed as a high-end TE2 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've gone over this plenty of times throughout the year, but when both of these tight ends are active, it's going to be tough to trust them. With Thielen out, it became a bit more intriguing. When Smith was ruled out, Rudolph became a legitimate streamer. To be fair, we didn't know Cousins would throw the ball 45 times, but after watching Rudolph see eight targets, he's on everyone's radar. If there's a matchup to play borderline tight ends, it's this one against the Jaguars, as they've allowed a league-leading 2.33 PPR points per target to tight ends. You need to monitor the status of both Thielen and Smith, as both would cannibalize some of the role that we have with Rudolph. Tight ends have averaged just 6.2 targets per game against the Jaguars, which ranks as the ninth-fewest in the league, while the Vikings have targeted their tight ends just 5.7 times per game. Are you starting to see why it's going to be difficult to trust Rudolph with Smith in the lineup? If Smith misses, Rudolph would be a low-end TE1. If both play, they're both stuck in the TE2 territory as touchdown-or-bust options. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are just 26th against fantasy tight ends, Rudolph has a chance to find the end zone this week and have TE2 value.
