Kyle Rudolph cleared to return, fantasy value stable for Week 13

Dilip Vishwanat

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (concussion) has been cleared to return. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has been cleared to return after suffering a concussion in last weekend's loss to the Chicago Bears. Rudolph was hurt in the second half and forced to leave the game.

Rudolph had five catches for 55 yards and a touchdown against the Bears and has scored in his team's last two games. The Vikings face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Rudolph is back to turning in solid fantasy efforts after going through a lull earlier in the season. He has seven touchdowns on the season heading into Sunday's game with Green Bay.

Rudolph should be considered a fringe starter in deeper leagues this week, although he remains one of Minnesota's better options near the end zone.
