Kyle Rudolph caught two TDs. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: Rudolph's second TD was big to give the Vikings some cushion. Christian Ponder was extremely impressive today and that certainly bodes well for Rudolph. He had six targets today and he has routinely been Ponder's second favorite target behind Percy Harvin. Rudolph had tons of hype in the preseason and it looks like he's living up to it. He should be owned in all competitive leagues.
