Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is tackled by the New York Giants defense on Monday Night Football - Elsa

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught three passes for 27 yards in the Week 7 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught three passes for 27 yards in the Week 7 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The Vikings offense was terrible and newly minted starter Josh Freeman was off target and struggled much of the night. Rudolph was targeted nine times in the game.

Fantasy impact: The Vikings offense really struggled in Freeman's first start and he was largely responsible, but the play calling was terrible too. It's hard to trust any Vikings skill player right now but Rudolph was the third most targeted receiver behind Greg Jennings who had ten, and Jerome Simpson who also had nine. Rudolph should continue to get looks but the question remains whether Freeman can deliver it to him. The Vikings offense will return home to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.
