Kyle Rudolph pops up with new injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:54 pm ET) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph popped up on the injury report with an abdomen injury. He was limited in practice Wednesday. Rudolph has seven catches for 69 yards and a touchdown entering Week 3 at New Orleans.
Kyle Rudolph totals 53 yards
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/14) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had a team-high eight targets but connected just five times for 53 yards in the Vikings' 30-7 loss at home to the Patriots in Week 2. He had two catches for 26 yards on the Vikings' first drive of the game. 

The Vikings play at the Saints in Week 3. 

Kyle Rudolph notches Week 1 touchdown vs. Rams
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/14) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught two passes for 16 yards and scored a touchdown in his team's 34-6 win over the Rams Sunday.

Rudolph caught two of his four targets in Week 1, with his fourth-quarter touchdown helping to salt the game away. He beat his 16-yard total three times in the preseason and will likely have bigger performances down the road. Rudolph will look to reach the end zone again when he squares off with the Patriots in Week 2.

Kyle Rudolph faces tough Week 1 matchup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/14) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has drawn a lot of positive Fantasy buzz this preseason, with tight-end star-maker Norv Turner coming to Minnesota. Rudolph racked up a team-leading 149 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches during the preseason, but even though the stars seem to be aligning for an excellent season, he may run into trouble in Week 1.

Rudolph heads to St. Louis to face the Rams, where he has two things working against him. First, he'll be up against a vicious front four and may be called upon to block more than he would in a typical game. Rudolph was an excellent pass blocker in 2013, grading as the third-most efficient pass-blocking tight end in the league, per Pro Football Focus (min. 25 percent of team's snaps).

Second, the Rams were easily the best team in the league at defending tight ends in the passing game, per Football Outsiders. Ranking first in DVOA against tight ends, the Rams only allowed an average of 41.9 yards per game to the position in 2013.

CBSSports.com experts are mixed on Rudolph's prospects in Week 1, with Jamey Eisenberg ranking him 16th and Dave Richard seventh at the position. I'm siding with Eisenberg here, and if I owned Rudolph in any Fantasy leagues, I'd consider benching him in favor of someone with a better matchup.

Kyle Rudolph on Norv Turner: He's a genius
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/14) After catching a 51-yard touchdown pass Saturday, Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph told coach Mike Zimmer that "the guy you have upstairs is a genius," reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Rudolph referred to offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who is known for featuring tight ends.

Through two preseason games, Rudolph has caught five of six targets for 111 yards and a score.
