Rudolph caught 11 of 15 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph posted career highs in targets, catches and yards in this one while finding the end zone on a 22-yard connection with Sam Bradford in the second quarter. He showed a strong rapport with Bradford after the latter was acquired just before the season and finished with personal bests in nearly every major offensive category after falling just short of his personal best with seven touchdown receptions. Rudolph has emerged as a reliable fantasy option and should enjoy another strong season in 2017 even though the team could experience some turnover on the offensive side of the ball.

Rudolph caught six of nine targets for 53 yards Saturday against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph saw a similar number of targets as last week but was unable to come close to matching yardage totals. Still, he remained an integral cog in the Vikings' passing attack Saturday considering his nine targets only trailed Adam Thielen's 15. He'll look to finish the season strong in Week 17 against a Bears defense that has surrendered just the sixth-least passing yards per game in 2016.

Rudolph turned 10 targets into eight catches for 97 yards in Sunday's 34-6 loss to the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph led the Vikings in targets and receiving yards as they took to the air often after falling behind 27-0 at halftime. The 27-year-old tight end set season highs in receptions and yards as quarterback Sam Bradford was forced to check down often. His 58 catches and 573 yards this season both represent career highs.

Rudolph hauled in four of eight targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph got Minnesota's offense going early with a 44-yard gain and then capped the game off with a three-yard touchdown reception. It was all good news for Rudolph, who saw his largest gain of the season with his first reception and snapped a three-game scoreless streak with his last. His next test comes against a Colts defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in categories including opponents' receiving yards per game and receiving touchdowns.

Rudolph secured six of 12 targets for 45 yards in Thursday's 17-15 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

After a downturn in involvement following former offensive coordinator Norv Turner's exit on Nov. 2, Rudolph has bounced back with a pair of double-digit target games. He's secured 15 of 22 looks for 109 yards over the last two contests, reclaiming his place as one of Sam Bradford's most trusted targets. Despite the largely conservative nature of the Vikings offense regardless of who's calling the plays, Rudolph still shapes up as one of the better fantasy options at the fickle tight end position for the balance of the campaign.

Rudolph caught a team-high nine passes for 64 yards during Thursday's loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

After a disappointing two-catch, 12-yard game in Week 11, Rudolph returned to being a focal point of the passing attack and was targeted heavily over the middle throughout Thursday's game. He's been one of the more reliable fantasy tight ends this season, and considering the limited playmakers in the Minnesota passing game, Rudolph will likely remain heavily involved going forward.

Rudolph snatched two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph tied a season low with just three targets coming his way, but it's worth remembering that Minnesota's defense and special teams both scored long touchdowns - giving the offense less work to do. Sunday was only the second time this season that Rudolph was held to less than four catches without a touchdown - a testament to his consistency. In his last game against Thursday's opponent, Detroit, he was held to just a single yard, but it was good for a touchdown.

Rudolph reeled in five receptions on eight targets for 69 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph racked up his fifth touchdown of the 2016 season in a nice comeback effort in Week 10 after catching just one ball during last week's loss to the Lions. He saw twice as many targets than No. 2 receiver Adam Thielen, and Rudolph's value is obviously boosted whenever quarterback Sam Bradford shows up to play like he did on Sunday. Rudolph is averaging around four catches per game thus far, but hasn't surpassed the five-catch mark in a single contest since Week 3. He'll look to stay involved next week against the Cardinals.

Rudolph hauled in a one-yard touchdown on his only catch on three targets in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph had a season low in receptions and targets which is something to watch under new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. It's likely just an off week. At least Rudolph returned to being a key target in the red zone, as he hadn't scored and had just one red zone target the three prior games.

Rudolph had five receptions for 31 yards on six targets in Monday's loss to Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph didn't get many chances in the red zone with Minnesota's offense struggling due to issues on the offensive line. He's the second option in the passing game after Stefon Diggs, but his production may remain sporadic as long as Minnesota's offensive line woes continue.
