Kyle Rudolph probable, fantasy value remains strong for Week 4

Kyle Rudolph (thigh) is listed as probable for the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is expected to play this weekend against the Detroit Lions. He is listed as probable after missing a day of practice this week because of a sore thigh. Rudolph has become a big part of Minnesota's passing game in the red zone, having already pulled in three touchdown catches this season.

Fantasy Impact: Rudolph is a fringe No. 1 tight end this week as fantasy owners start to need bye-week replacements. He cannot be counted on for lots of yardage but three touchdowns through three weeks makes it easy for fantasy owners to forget about that. Rudolph is a tight end on the rise and should be owned at this point in just about all formats.
