Vikings | Matt Asiata has quiet Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:17:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata was facing a tough Panthers defense and should play better moving forward. He will receive playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is sidelined but will not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

Vikings | Matt Asiata to start Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:13:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata will be the starting running back for the Vikings in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata should receive a decent amount of carries this week and likely will run between the tackles, while Jerick McKinnon will be used as a runner as well as a receiver out of the backfield. Both players are facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense but could still be flex options in fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon will start

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:09:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon will be the starting running back with RB Adrian Peterson (knee) sidelined. He likely will play at least 60 percent of the snaps. RB Matt Asiata will also receive playing time and likely will handle the goal line carries.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will be able to help out in the running and passing game over the next few months and should be a popular waiver wire addition. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues. Asiata will also have value and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Vikings | Minnesota will split work for backs

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 13:22:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RBs Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata could see a 65/35 split between carries if RB Adrian Peterson (knee) misses any time, according to Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Fantasy Tip: As stated before, McKinnon is the better all-around player and should be picked up this week if Peterson owners are in a tight pinch. Asiata has more value in PPR formats, but he should only be claimed in deeper leagues. If Peterson can't play then McKinnon would slide into low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory for Week 3.

Vikings | Financials for Matt Asiata

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 23:10:57 -0700

The one-year deal for Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata is for $760,000 in salary with a $60,000 bonus. He also has a $500,000 playing time bonus, as well as incentives for rush yards and receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata will be behind Adrian Peterson and Jerick McKinnon on the depth chart, but he could reach those incentives if injuries befall one of the top two tailbacks.

Vikings | Matt Asiata re-signs with Vikes

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 15:09:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata re-signed to an undisclosed deal Wednesday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata is a solid pass-catching running back and a good blocker, but he has minimal fantasy value as long as Adrian Peterson and Jerick McKinnon are healthy. If he were to be drafted, he'd have more value in PPR leagues.

Vikings | Matt Asiata to re-sign with Vikings?

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 17:00:12 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Matt Asiata is wanted back by the Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Asiata didn't see and won't see much playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is healthy. It looks like the odds are in favor of Asiata returning to Minnesota, though, where he solidified himself as a consistent pass-catcher and solid blocker. He'll have more value in PPR leagues, but he's not worth draft as long as Peterson is good to go.
