  • See our experts' fantasy football rankings, 2019 projections, analysis and more for Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph.

While Rudolph is the No.1 tight end on the Vikings, he’s far from a No. 1 receiving option with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen accumulating 51% of the target share in Minnesota last season.

Rudolph has very little upside in this offense: He had just 13% of the Air Yards in 2018, along with a 6.7-yard average depth of target. The Vikings also added tight end Irv Smith Jr. in the second round of this year’s draft. Justin Bailey
