Kyle Rudolph's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Kyle Rudolph is not projected to be worth a roster spot based on total fantasy points the rest of the season. His 22 projected fantasy points puts him at #48 behind Nick Boyle and ahead of Blake Jarwin. He has averaged 4.3 fantasy points in his past 22 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 2.2 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#49) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #49 ranked tight end. Kyle Rudolph is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #50 fantasy position rank.

KYLE RUDOLPH PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF VERNON DAVIS IN WEEK 7

Kyle Rudolph is projected for 2.2 fantasy points in week 7 which only ranks him as the #42 projected tight end and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is a typical week for him with a FP projection that is the same as his projected per game average over the rest of the season. He is ranked above Vernon Davis but behind Luke Willson. Week 8 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#45). He is projected for 2.3 fantasy points.

KYLE RUDOLPH IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $4.5K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $2.9K

He is projected for 3 FanDuel points and 3.9 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$2433 short of $4.5K on FanDuel and -$1372 short of $2.9K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
