Kyle Rudolph sees role growing in second game back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Vikings eased tight end Kyle Rudolph back into action last week, but he got more involved in the offense in Week 12 against the Packers Sunday.

Rudolph went from zero targets in his first game back to five Sunday, and he ended up second on the team with three receptions for 50 yards, his best showing since Week 2. It will be interesting to see how his snap count usage went, however he was the only tight end on the roster who had more than 15 yards in the game.

That Rudolph would be worked back in slowly while working his way back from surgery is no surprise, but he should have a solid role moving forward. The Vikings need weapons for rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to throw to, so he might lean on Rudolph down the stretch. He is still available in half of CBSSports.com leagues, and might be a solid pick up right now.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph picked up 50 yards against the Packers Week 12.

Rudolph pulled down three passes during the game. He was targeted five times. The Vikings had trouble getting things going in the passing game, which led to Rudolph finishing second on the team in receiving despite the average day. 

Rudolph will look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Vikings will have both Greg Jennings and Jerick McKinnon Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings came into the contest listed as questionable with a rib injury. He'll give it a go against his former team. McKinnon was listed as probable with a back injury. 

The team will also have Anthony Barr, Scott Crichton, Everson Griffen, Michael Harris, Captain Munnerlyn, Xavier Rhodes and Kyle Rudolph. All seven came into the game listed as probable, and were always expected to play.

Both Matt Kalil and Jarius Wright will also attempt to play. They were both listed as questionable. Kalil has a knee injury, while Wright is dealing with a hamstring issue. 


Eight probables pepper injury report posted by Vikings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) A first glance at the injury report produced Friday by the Vikings for their Week 12 game against Green Bay might lead one to believe that many will be among the missing. But a closer look reveals eight probables among the 13 players listed.

That group includes seven who are ailing. They are running back Jerick McKinnon (lower back), offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), defensive ends Scott Crichton (hip) and Everson Griffen (neck) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin).

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Hitting the wire for tight ends


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With how up-and-down many tight ends have been this season, identifying the right ones on waivers can be a key. In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tries to pin down the best ones for you to target this week.

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels, coming off a six-catch performance with a touchdown in Week 7, is the top pick for the 41 percent of CBSSports.com leagues in which he is available. A big reason why is a matchup against the Bengals, who have allowed four double-digit Fantasy scoring games by tight ends this season.

The remainder of the top five for the week is rounded out by Coby Fleener of the Colts (44 percent owned), Charles Clay of the Dolphins (34 percent), Jared Cook of the Rams (47 percent) and Kyle Rudolph of the Vikings (32 percent), who makes more sense as a stash option if you can afford the roster space.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
