Vikings | Kyle Rudolph finds end zone

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 14:03:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught two passes for 17 yards and one touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was a question mark coming into the game but was a decent option for fantasy owners because of the touchdown. He will have more time to rest his injured ankle and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end next week.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph active for Week 15

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 09:12:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is active for Week 15's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was on the verge of being held out of this game after being unable to practice during the week. It is uncertain how close to 100 percent his ankle is and it would not be surprising if he saw limited snaps this afternoon, so he is not a recommended fantasy option.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph expected to play

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 06:42:30 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) appears likely to play in Week 15's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph did not practice at all during the week and was listed as doubtful on the initial injury report before being upgraded to questionable. It is uncertain how healthy Rudolph is or if he will see a limited number of offensive snaps, so daily fantasy players or seasonal owners with a solid backup plan should avoid using him this week.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph upgraded to questionable

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 09:31:49 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph is listed as questionable Saturday, Dec. 16, after appearing as doubtful on the injury report on Friday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: This has been quite the miraculous turnaround for Rudolph, who was reportedly ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer earlier Friday before the injury report was released. There's no telling at the moment how healthy Rudolph really is, however, so owners would be wise to stick with their backup plan until there is some confirmation of his status Sunday morning.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph now considered doubtful

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 11:07:06 -0800

Contrary to an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph will still more than likely be ruled out at some point over the weekend, but it's an interesting upgrade considering head coach Mike Zimmer himself reportedly ruled out his starting tight end earlier in the day. Stay tuned.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph ruled out for Week 15

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 10:45:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) will not play in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: With four touchdowns over the last three weeks, Rudolph had started to become a trusted red zone option for Case Keenum. Without him, it increases the likelihood of Stefon Diggs or Jerick McKinnon will have a solid game, as either player figures to benefit from the targets Rudolph leaves behind. Adam Thielen also has a higher ceiling as well.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph sits out Friday

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 09:59:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph appears unlikely to play Sunday, leaving David Morgan and practice-squader Kyle Carter as the only active tight ends against the Cincinnati Bengals. Neither Morgan nor Carter need to be considered for fantasy purposes.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph misses practice

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:11:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a shame for Rudolph's hot streak to end because of an injury. He has found the end zone four times in his last three games but needs to practice at some point this week. Have a backup plan in place in case Rudolph continues to be sidelined.
