Minnesota Vikings: Vikings vs Chiefs game preview

Now that the Minnesota Vikings are 2-0 under head coach Mike Zimmer, I’m slowly but surely becoming a bigger and bigger fan of Zimmer. The next game against the Chiefs, however, will surely be more of a challenge, considering the 3rd preseason game is normally the closest to regular season game action. The Vikings will be traveling to Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday...

Five Things We Learned: Vikings edge Cardinals 30-28

So what did we learn from the Cardinals loss in Minnesota? Quite a bit but here are the top five things off of that list. 1. Arizona still can’t cover the tight end in zone defense. Kyle Rudolph was able to run a great route and sit behind Lorenzo Alexander when he made the catch. Had he been tackled there, it would have been an 18-yard gain. Instead, Rudolph had some room to run...

Vikings' slimmed-down Rudolph dances through Arizona's secondary

MINNEAPOLIS -- Since bouncing from tight end to split end to slot receiver to H-back and back again at Elder High School in Cincinnati, Kyle Rudolph's long had the notion he might join the cabal of field-stretching, pass-nabbing tight ends currently sweeping the NFL landscape.

Expect Kyle Rudolph to be a Pro-Bowler this year

Since Norv Turner became the head coach of the San Diego Chargers in 2007, the top tight end in Norv Turner’s system has never scored less than seven touchdowns and has fallen short of 700 yards only once. That bodes well for Kyle Rudolph, who made the Pro Bowl in 2012 after catching 53 passes […] The post Expect Kyle Rudolph to be a Pro-Bowler this year appeared first on NFL Draft Diamonds.

Why Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph got Paid

Earlier this week the Vikings announced they signed TE Kyle Rudolph to a five-year contract extension worth $36.5 million. This now makes him the 5th highest paid tight end in the NFL. He is now only behind Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Jason Witten, and Vernon Davis. And he is now just above Antonio Gates. That is pretty good company, especially for a 24 year old with pretty modest...

Kyle Rudolph: Fantasy steal

Kyle Rudolph may have just signed a handsome contract extension, but that isn’t the only reason to pay attention to him this year. No sir, he may not have ranked in the top-20 for tight-ends in 2013, but don’t let that sway you from drafting him this year. Look, he isn’t going to be the next Tony Gonzalez, but he is ready to take that next step. I expect him to pop into the...

Buy or Sell: Kyle Rudolph

Kyle Rudolph missed half of the 2013 season with a broken foot. During the two seasons previous, he’s shown signs of stardom, but also has disappeared for significant chunks of time. Was he the victim of poor QB play and unimaginative coaching? Or is he just a fair-to-middling player? The Vikings seem to think he’s going to step it up a notch. The team just signed him to a lucrative...
