Kyle Rudolph remains Vikings only fantasy receiving option

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Tight end Kyle Rudolph was the only member of the Minnesota Vikings to do anything of note receiving against the Green Bay Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Minnesota Vikings struggled to pass the ball against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but tight end Kyle Rudolph still managed to have a solid day. Rudolph caught six passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings 23-14 loss.

Christian Ponder only threw for 119 yards, but managed to find Rudolph for a second quarter touchdown. No other Viking had more than two receptions.

Fantasy Impact: With Percy Harvin out, Rudolph remains the only viable fantasy receiving option on the Vikings. He now has eight touchdowns on the season and is a solid tight end option.

Rudolph will have a tough matchup next week against the Bears, but he should at least get a lot of looks.
