Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As Thielen continues to miss games, the Vikings tight end duo continues to rack up targets. Smith is actually just four targets and 24 yards behind Rudolph on the year, but the five-touchdown gap is what has made the difference in fantasy. The Chargers are allowing just 3.85 receptions per game to tight ends, which is obviously not a whole lot to go around with a timeshare. They also got Derwin James back in the lineup a few weeks back, which certainly doesn't hurt. There have been just four tight ends who hit double-digit PPR points, and each of them saw a minimum of five targets, as well as scored a touchdown. In a game we're expecting limited pass attempts, it may be hard to guarantee that for Rudolph, who was out-targeted 4-2 last week by Smith. This is not a matchup you must attack with tight ends, making Rudolph a mediocre TE2 with Smith on the low-end TE2 radar. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chargers are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Rudolph is a low-upside TE2 streamer on the road this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Rudolph's fantasy value takes a hit with Adam Thielen's return, since he will not be used as often between the 20's. Still, it's an alright matchup, he will be used in the red zone and the Vikings should be able to move the ball. Considering all of these points, Rudolph is a borderline TE1 or high end TE2 this week.
