2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I pegged Rudolph as a likely TE1 last year at this time, but never imagined he'd lead all tight ends in targets and finish as the No.3 overall. Rudolph can thank his strong season to several factors that worked in his favor. First, the Vikings dreadful offensive line and non-existent running game meant Rudolph was the ultimate dump off target for Sam "checkdown" Bradford. Rudolph also stayed healthy for the entire year, something he's struggled with at times in his career. Although he's an athletic, sure-handed athlete, Rudolph is a miserable blocker, and ran routes a majority of the time he was on the field. He was the de facto slot-receiver for much of the year, and a clear favorite of Sam Bradford.

While the stars aligned for Rudolph's success in 2016, I foresee it being quite difficult to do so in 2017. First off, the Vikings offense should be more balanced and operational than it was last year, and Rudolph shouldn't have to be the security blanket for Bradford as much as he was last year. While he still presents mismatches at times, he doesn't possess elite physical tools to dominate a defense. He reminds me a lot of former Steelers tight end Heath Miller; solid pass receiver, but not someone who's going to jump off the page. Rudolph should remain active in the redzone, but more talent in the backfield, and healthier passing game options, I think Rudolph falls back into the pack and sets up more as an uninspiring low-end TE1 option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Stefon Diggs ruled out
Case Keenum will start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 20, 2:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed in his Friday afternoon press conference that Case Keenum will start at quarterback on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs (groin), quarterback Sam Bradford (knee), guard Nick Easton (calf) have all been ruled out on Sunday after not participating in practice this week. (Vikings.com)

FFToday's Take: Diggs missed Week 6 with a groin injury and will miss Week 7 as well. In his place Adam Thielen will be the main target for Keenum against the Ravens on Sunday. Kyle Rudolph is also a good option for TE streamers.
