Rudolph was an ascending fantasy force at the tight end position after posting 53 receptions and nine touchdowns in 2012. Since then a litany of injuries have seen the big tight end from Notre Dame miss nineteen games and manage to score only five touchdowns. It is all about staying healthy and on the field when examining Rudolph's fantasy future, as he has all the tools to dominate. He also has one of the better young quarterbacks in the league throwing to him in Teddy Bridgewater, whom he has been working with in the off season. Until he proves he can stay on the field, Rudolph holds no more than number two tight end status for 2015.
