Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) has a fractured foot and could miss as much as a month.
Huddle Up: This is a big blow to an offense that isn't exactly high powered. If you were counting on Rudolph to buoy your fantasy team to the playoffs, find a good alternative quickly.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) had X-rays on his foot after the Week 9 game against the Dallas Cowboys. X-rays were negative. Rudolph is expected to be re-examined Monday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: It's a short week for the Vikings, so while it's good news that Rudolph's X-rays were negative that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready to play on Thursday.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team wants to take some snaps off of TE Kyle Rudolph in 2013 after rarely leaving the field last season. The coaching staff believes the increased workload hurt his productivity.
Huddle Up: A healthy John Carlson should be able to take some of Rudolph's snaps without a significant drop in productivity at the position, but reducing Rudolph's on-field time also takes a bite out of his fantasy value. Then again, Rudolph's primary contribution came as a red-zone guy so as long as that role isn't reduced the hit should be minimal.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had five receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 27. He was named the game's most valuable player.
Huddle Up: Not a bad outing for Rudolph; clearly he followed the lead set by his teammate Adrian Peterson about playing hard in the Pro Bowl. Doesn't hurt that defenses mostly take the day off, either.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Rudolph's fantasy owners got burned big-time in Week 14 as the TE failed to catch a pass on a surprising 2 targets. In each of the the previous 3 games, Rudolph had had at least 51 yards and a TD, and fantasy GMs who are going back to this well are most definitely hoping for the former rather than the latter this Sunday.
