As the 2019 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Kyle Rudolph's Fantasy Outlook
Rudolph posted career highs in catch rate and yards per target in his first season with Kirk Cousins. A bit of bad red zone luck dragged him down, though. Rudolph scored on just 23.1 percent of his red zone targets, including 28.6 percent of targets inside the 10, according to Pro Football Reference. Before that, he had scored on 36.4 percent of career red zone chances and 48.8 percent from inside the 10. He finished last season a touchdown away from the top 6 in fantasy points.
Size: 6'6", 265
Bye Week: 12
Rudolph isn’t going to get huge volume unless Adam Thielen or Stefon Diggs goes down. But Kirk Cousins’ efficiency will help him stay solid.
