Where Norv Turner goes, the fantasy owner looking for a break-out tight end follows. From Jay Novacek in the‘90s, Antonio Gates in ‘00s and Jordan Cameron last year, Turner has quite a knack for featuring tight ends in his offensive system. Will Kyle Rudolph be the next in line to make the leap? Prior to his 2013 mid-season broken foot, Rudolph was on pace for career highs in receptions and yardage, totals that would have put him in the low-end TE1 conversation. In a fantasy position that lacks consistency outside the top tier, Rudolph has the physical traits and work ethic to massively improve on his 2013 ranking. While not as athletic as some former Turner tight ends, Rudolph is a monster in the red zone, and reports out of offseason workouts have him working extensively on his route running and discipline. With Turner calling plays, the threat of Adrian Peterson in the backfield, and Cordarelle Patterson out wide, Rudolph should easily double his totals from 2013, making him a solid TE1 for owners who miss out on a member of the top 5.

Comment: OC Norv Turner features the tight end, which bodes well for Rudolph. Turner has made fantasy stars out of Antonio Gates and Jordan Cameron.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Vikings optimistic about early return from Rudolph
Underwent sports hernia surgery after Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 29, 4:05 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Mike Zimmer still feels like TE Kyle Rudolph out less than eight weeks from when hurt. That's why no injury with designation to return. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rudolph admitted his injury had bothered him since early August and was given a 4-to-6 week timeline for recovery. As proof of Rudolph's upside when healthy, Jarius Wright ended up taking many of the slot snaps in Week 4 that Rudolph would have received. The Vikings' bye is in Week 10, which makes the following week a realistic return date. Any time before Week 11 should be considered a bonus.


Injury Kyle Rudolph likely out six weeks
Will undergo sports hernia surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 22, 3:35 pm

Minnesota Vikings
TE Kyle Rudolph left Sunday’s loss to the Saints with a groin injury and was expected to have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage. Albert Breer of NFL Media reports that Rudolph will need to have sports hernia surgery and is expected to miss about six weeks while he recovers. The Vikings have targeted Rudolph 17 times this season, just behind Greg Jennings for the most of anyone on the team. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Another brutal blow for a Minnesota offense that has lost potentially its top two red-zone options in Adrian Peterson and Rudolph. Rhett Ellison and MarQueis Gray will fill in during his absence, but the Vikings don't have a suitable replacement for Rudolph on the roster. It makes the job even harder for rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who will make his first career start at home against Atlanta in Week 4.
