Rudolph re-emerges from the dead
During the Vikings’ first few matchups of the year, tight end Kyle Rudolph played a big part in the team’s offensive game plan. Rudolph ended up with at least five catches in four of Minnesota’s first five games this season.
However, the Vikings tight end has seen his involvement in the offense take a dip over the last few weeks. Rudolph has finished with three catches or less in four of Minnesota’s last five matchups.
This week, he will be going up against a Dolphins defense that has given up four touchdowns to opposing tight ends in their last three games. The nine total scores Miami has allowed opposing tight ends to catch this season is currently tied for the most in the NFL.
With this being the case, expect Rudolph to walk of the field on Sunday with at least five catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.
