Vikings | Adrian Peterson limited by finger

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:43:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (finger) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21. Peterson left RB Matt Asiata to the running back duties for the final few plays in Week 6 after hurting his finger.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) was held in check last week by the Kansas City Chiefs, but he has good history within his division and should be able to bounce back against a soft Detroit Lions run defense this weekend.

Vikings | Matt Asiata out in goal-line situations?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:37:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata was a fantastic contributor in goal-line situations, but head coach Mike Zimmer indicated Monday, July 27, that RB Adrian Peterson will be leaned upon in the situations this season. "Obviously, we're going to have to spell (Peterson) at times like you do a lot of guys. But we get down on the goal line, and we're probably not pulling him out, you know?," Zimmer said.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata had some fantasy appeal, especially in TD-only leagues, last season. However, with the return of Peterson, and the presence of Jerick McKinnon, it's unlikely Asiata gets very many touches unless long-term injuries strike in the Minnesota backfield.

Vikings | Matt Asiata should have role

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 12:36:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata likely will be used in short-yardage situations this season.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata's fantasy value has gone down with Adrian Peterson returning to the team. Asiata could be a late-round option as a handcuff to Peterson, but he probably will not be used in the starting lineup much this season.

Vikings | Matt Asiata returning to Minnesota

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:48:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent RB Matt Asiata will sign a new one-year deal with the Vikings, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata received a lot of playing time this past season because of Adrian Peterson's off-field issues and finished the season with 570 yards and nine touchdowns. Asiata's fantasy value probably will depend on what the Vikings do with Peterson since he could be a starting option if Peterson leaves. Asiata could be considered a weak No. 2 running back or flex option if he becomes the starter and would be more valuable in standard leagues.
