Kyle Rudolph's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Kyle Rudolph was the number #8 ranked TE and the #224 ranked player overall. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (16). Based on average fantasy points he is the #17 TE. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 7.2 FPs in his first 5 games and 6.5 FP in his final 6 games. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Rudolph is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 5.6 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 24 fantasy points. Kyle Rudolph (2019 Season Projection: 56 Rec, 563 Yards, 4 TDs) is projected to take a slight step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #14 player at his position.
