Vikings | Matt Asiata should play

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:33:13 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata likely will continue to receive a majority of the carries and will be facing a Miami Dolphins defense that has struggled against running backs over the past four games. Asiata costs $4,600 on FantasyScore and could be an attractive option at running back or the flex position.

Vikings | Matt Asiata limited again

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:15:37 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) was limited for a second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Asiata's status leading up to the weekend. If he is able to play, he'll have a decent matchup with the Miami Dolphins, who allow just over 100 rushing yards per game to running backs.

Vikings | Limited practice for Matt Asiata

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 14:05:44 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata ($4,600) gains some value with Jerick McKinnon out for the year. Also, Asiata should be a nice value play at FantasyScore this week. He's had double-digit carries in each of the last three weeks, and the Miami Dolphins have been very vulnerable on the ground of late.

Vikings | Ben Tate, Joe Banyard may see more time

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 14:16:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RBs Ben Tate and Joe Banyard could receive more carries, because head coach Mike Zimmer thought RB Matt Asiata received too many carries in Week 14. Asiata received 19 of the 23 carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata probably will still receive a majority of the carries but will see his number of touches go down with Tate and Banyard receiving more carries. Asiata should only be considered a desperate flex option for owners, while Tate and Banyard should not be considered for starting lineups.

Vikings | Matt Asiata says he'll play in Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:14:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, and he said he'll play in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers. "It's always tough to sit out and watch your team," Asiata said after the workout. "But I'm back, and I'm cleared up, and I'm ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: Asiata ($4,100) returns to find a three-headed monster in the Vikings backfield, with Jerick McKinnon ($5,400) and Ben Tate ($3,700) also involved. If Asiata receives enough touches, he could be a bargain play at FantasyScore against the Panthers.

Vikings | Ben Tate will play

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 06:45:21 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Ben Tate will be active Sunday, Nov. 23, and have a role in Week 12. RB Matt Asiata will be inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) probably won't have enough of a role this week to be a factor on FantasyScore. It's pretty hard to sign with a team and have a big role at running back the same week.
