2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm not quite sure why there was such a commotion over Rudolph this offseason. There was trade talk around the draft, then some talk of releasing him as well. In the end the Vikings decided to ink him to a contract extension that pays him in the top-5 at his position. That seems like a big chunk of change for very mediocre player, but I get that the team is in "win now" mode.

There was some hype about Rudolph's potential to return to top flight fantasy status last season with the addition of Kirk Cousins. Over the early career injuries woes that plagued him nearly annually, Rudolph went out and pretty much replicated his 2017 reception and yardage numbers. The biggest dip came in touchdown production, where the usually adept red zone receiver hauled in only 4. As the de facto No.3 receiver on this team, Rudolph is going to again be a TE1 option, abet an underwhelming one, especially if the touchdown floor remains under 5. There are simply better upside options at the bottom of this fantasy position. I wouldn't factor in the addition of Irv Smith in the 2nd round this year into Rudolph's 2019 value, as the rookie still has to develop.

Injury Adam Thielen eyeing Week 13 return?
Missed most of last five games with hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 28, 11:55 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen remains on track for possible Monday return. Has missed 4 of the past 5 games with a hamstring injury. The Vikings didn't practice Thursday but he was estimated as a limited participant. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen reportedly suffered a "slight scare" with his injury earlier in the week, so it remains to be seen if he limited designation is a good thing or not. Considering he's already had one setback with a hamstring, owners would be wise to make prove he can make it through a full game without aggravating it before plugging him back into fantasy lineups. Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith figure to benefit the most from another absence.


Injury Adam Thielen out for Thursday Night Football
Hamstring injury

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings are listing WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) as out for tomorrow night's game. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Vikings will rest their No.1 receiver on a short week leaving Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson as the top wideouts with Laquon Treadwell expected to see more work. The Vikings may also use more two-tight end sets with Kyle Rudolph and rookie Irv Smith.
