Rudolph (foot) will be placed on IR.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rudolph likely would have been able to return to the field in a week or two, but the Vikings decided to shut him down since there was no chance to compete for a playoff spot. John Carlson, meanwhile, is questionable with a concussion, which could force the Vikings to start blocking specialist Rhett Ellison.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rudolph hurt his foot in Sunday's loss to Dallas, and initial X-rays after the game were negative, but further testing must have shown the fracture. It's too bad, as it looked like he was set to benefit from being Christian Ponder's favorite target again, after hauling in a touchdown in the loss.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Rudolph had a decent rookie season as he saw his role in the offense grow in the second half. The 6-6, 260-pound tight end caught all three of his touchdowns in the final six games, showing improved chemistry with Christian Ponder. While Rudolph only had 39 targets, he showed enough receiving skills to have a much larger role this season with Visanthe Schianco gone via free agency. Unfortunately, the Vikings signed John Carlson to replace him. Carlson, though, is coming off a season-long shoulder injury, and the Vikings run a lot of two tight-end sets anyway. Look for Rudolph to win the starting job and be the bigger factor in the Vikings’ passing game.

2011

Rudolph was the first tight end drafted in 2011, but he begins the season as the second tight end on the depth chart with the opportunity to learn the nuances of the game from veteran Visanthe Shiancoe. Big and physical at 6-6, 260, the Notre Dame standout still needs to improve his blocking skills, which might be his weakest attribute. He has good speed for his size and will continue to develop strength as a 21-year-old. Coaches have raved about his “coachability” and with his physical tools, Rudolph has the most long-term upside of any rookie tight end. A hamstring injury that had nagged him during the early part of the Notre Dame season shut him down completely for the last six games, but isn't expected to be a problem when training camp starts.
