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.

Rudolph had five receptions for 55 yards on a team-high 11 targets in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph hasn't found the end zone the last two games after scoring a touchdown in three consecutive games. However, he showed he's quarterback Sam Bradford's top target and should get more opportunities in the red zone.

Rudolph caught two of four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

The game marked season lows in catches, targets and yards for Rudolph and snapped a three-game touchdown streak. It'd be a mistake to read too much into the mediocre showing, however. Rudolph remains a solid fantasy starter, ranking tied for seventh among tight ends in receptions, and is on pace for career highs in receptions, targets, yards and touchdowns with new quarterback Sam Bradford and position coach and long-time offensive coordinator, Pat Shurmur.

Rudolph (rib/clavicle) was a full practice participant Friday and is slated to play in Sunday's game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Rudolph improved from a non-participant Wednesday to limited on Thursday, finally getting in a full session Friday. Already the recipient of 33 targets in four games, he could be even busier than usual, as top wideout Stefon Diggs (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game.

Rudolph (rib/clavicle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

He missed Wednesday's practice, but that may have been more due to the birth of his twins on Tuesday night. It seems likely he'll play this weekend.
