Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph registered only one catch for seven yards on two targets in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Rudolph is a dangerous option in the red zone, but he was nearly invisible in this one. He'll look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Chicago Bears, but it's likely too late for a majority of fantasy owners who had their championship in Week 16.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had three receptions for 48 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15.
Huddle Up: After a tremendous six-week run, Rudolph has done little the past two weeks. He has an enticing matchup in Week 16, however, against a Packers defense that has had its troubles defending the tight end all season.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had four receptions for 14 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday, Nov. 10, against the Dallas Cowboys. Rudolph also caught a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: Twenty of Kirk Cousins' 32 passes went to tight ends or backs, so clearly that was a big part of the game plan going in. Rudolph didn't account for many yards, but his two TDs give him four in as many weeks. That provides him with some touchdown-dependent desperation value.
