Vikings ink TE Kyle Rudolph to 5-year, $36.5 million extension

The Vikings' quarterback of the future may become their quarterback of the present. If he does, one should expect a lot of connections between Teddy Bridgewater @teddyb_h2o and Kyle Rudolph @KyleRudolph82 this year and over the next five years.
The Vikings signed the 24-year-old tight end on Sunday to a five-year contract extension through 2019. The extension is worth $36.5 million. Rudolph was limited to eight games last season because of a broken foot, but he is not feeling any effects from it in camp.

Fantasy Analysis:

The case for Rudolph in fantasy is easy: Huge target with good-enough athleticism; touchdown maven; coached by Norv Turner, who has turned a handful of tight ends of different pedigrees into stars; likely catching passes from a rookie quarterback who will need a safety blanket to stay afloat in the league right away; lots of room for upside with an eighth-round ADP.
Like Dennis Pitta, Rudolph is a TE I'm aiming for in drafts and one reason why I don't like chasing TE early on ... unless I can land Jimmy Graham.
