Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has already been cleared of his concussion.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rudolph has been much more involved the last two games, catching 12 passes for 119 yards and two TDs. It's not clear if this is a by-product of Percy Harvin's absence or if the team is intending to give him a bigger role offensively. One good sign is that Jarius Wright has seen almost as many targets (7.5) in the last two games as did Harvin (7.7) in the previous three games, so it does not appear that Rudolph got Harvin's targets. Instead, it was probably a function of Christian Ponder throwing the ball more often. He averaged 37.5 pass attempts in the last two games compared to just 24.7 in Weeks 7-9. As long as Ponder keeps attempting 30+ passes, Rudolph should be a solid TE play.
