Fantasy Analysis
Week 8 Projections
He gets regular looks from Bradford regardless of the opponent, so we see another week on tap where he could pay off as a reach play in a Monday night divisional battle.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 35 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
After missing a total of 15 games between 2013 and 2014, Rudolph was finally able to stay healthy last season, but it didn't really seem to matter. Offensive coordinator, Norv Tuner, a noted 'tight end whisperer' after his work in San Diego (2007-12) with Antonio Gates and in Cleveland with Jordan Cameron (2013), failed to work his magic with Rudolph. Although to be fair to Rudolph, he is one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. And it's for that reason that Rudolph is borderline undraftable. That, and the drafting of wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. Treadwell is a big, tough receiver who will work the short to intermediate routes soaking up targets one reserved for Rudolph. Add in the emergence of second-year player MyCole Pruitt, a receiving tight end, and you can see Rudolph's role in the passing game getting smaller.

Receiving: 34 Receptions, 367 Yards, 5 TD.
