Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers
At the beginning of the season, Rudolph appeared to be one of Kirk Cousins’ more reliable targets averaging five targets per game and 44.3 yards through the first six games of the season. Lately though, Rudolph is an afterthought, with his targets dipping to 4.5 and 24.0 yards per game. He hasn’t scored since Week 3 and many veteran fantasy owners may be holding onto him because of name recognition over results. The Packers defense has defended tight ends well all season. Only George Kittle (4/30/0) has caught more than one pass against them since Week 5, while Ed Dicksons’ 15-yard touchdown in Week 11 was the only tight end score surrendered by them.
