Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position.

There wasn’t a whole lot to like about the Minnesota Vikings’ passing game in 2012, but one of the few bright spots was the play of second-year tight end Kyle Rudolph. Rudolph tallied fewer than 500 receiving yards last year, but he emerged as quarterback Christian Ponder’s go-to guy in the red zone, leading the team with nine touchdown catches. Those numbers were good for a top-10 fantasy finish at his position, and there’s ample reason to think that with another year of experience under his belt Rudolph should be in for a substantial bump in yardage in 2013.
