Kyle Rudolph scores in Week 12, reliable fantasy TE

Dilip Vishwanat

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph found the end zone in Week 12. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph found the end zone on Sunday. In Week 12 versus the Chicago Bears, the Vikes' pass-catcher finished with 5 catches for 55 yards and a touchdown.

With Percy Harvin sidelined by injury, the team leaned on Rudolph in the passing game. Unfortunately, they dropped the game against the Bears by a wide margin.

Fantasy Analysis: Rudolph's fantasy value was high early in the season as he was collecting TDs. Then he cooled off but he could be back again with the absence of Harvin. Rudolph has been a focus in this Vikings passing offense, resulting in him getting a number of TDs.

Rudolph should continue to get plenty of looks in this Vikings offense so consider him a viable TE1 in most fantasy formats.
