Tampa Bay made it official, signing the former Vikings and Giants tight end to a one-year deal. Heading into his 12th NFL season at the ripe age of 33, Kyle Rudolph will have an uphill battle to be a focal point of an offense for the first time since 2018.
Between the loss of Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard, the team was in a spot to replace over 1,000 snaps at the position heading into the season, so the signing of a veteran comes as no surprise. With Rudolph as more of an in-line blocker —particularly at this point in his career— Cameron Brate should still have plenty of the pass-catching role in 2022.
NYG TE Kyle Rudolph - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Washington Football Team
Kyle Rudolph had five targets last week but caught just two balls for eight yards. Even with Evan Engram out again Thursday night, the Washington Football Team ranked 13th in aFPA to opposing tight ends last year, and this offense looks rough. Leave him on waivers.
