Season Projections
Rudolph's production took a hit last season as expected because the Vikings switched to a run-first attack, and he operated in a timeshare with then-rookie Irv Smith. Rudolph clocked out of 2019 as the fantasy TE15/non-PPR and as the fantasy TE16/PPR only because of his six touchdown grabs (just three tight ends caught more scoring passes). He averaged a soft 3.0 targets, 2.4 receptions and 22.9 receiving yards per contest. Did the presence of Smith really impact Rudolph? If you add Smith's receiving line of 36-311-2 on 47 targets to Rudolph's numbers, you get 75-678-8 on 95 targets, which was top eight fantasy tight end production. Don't expect a 2020 Rudolph rebound. The Vikings will continue to utilize a run-heavy offense with Gary Kubiak now calling the shots. They also added rookie first-rounder Justin Jefferson to the starting lineup, so Rudolph won't inherit a large share of the 94 targets that Stefon Diggs (Bills) left behind. In addition, Minnesota wants to expand Smith's role and make better use of his 4.63 wheels, even though targets are at a premium in this offense. Rudolph will turn 31 in November, but he still has great hands and a nose for the end zone with at least six touchdown receptions in three of the last four seasons.

Receiving: 24 Receptions, 234 Yards, 2 TD.
