Dan Harris

Rudolph found the end zone for the third consecutive game last weekend against the Panthers, but he left the locker room in a walking boot and hasn't yet practiced this week. If he does play, he's a must-start option, given that he has four touchdowns in his last three games and has become an integral part of the offense. The Bengals are decent against opposing tight ends, but they're banged up on defense and look to have lost much of their fight. If Rudolph plays, expect his usual solid production.

Cincinnati is 16th against fantasy tight ends, Rudolph is a touchdown dependent TE1.
