Fantasy Tip: He's still a ways away from returning from double sports hernia surgery, but he would be an immediate low-end TE1 consideration on FantasyScore once he's ready to go.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's ability to consistently rip off big runs has allowed him to become the main back for the Vikings. Matt Asiata will probably keep stealing the goal-line carries, but McKinnon is the much better fantasy play at this point. He will take up 10.6% of the cap ($5,300) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he makes a great mid-level play with the Vikings facing an awful Tampa Bay defense.

Fantasy Tip: Rookie Jerick McKinnon had 21 total touches, and he went over 100 rushing yards in the loss. Asiata's fantasy star has clearly dimmed, and he appears to be second on the depth chart behind the Georgia Southern product. Avoid Asiata in FantasyScore going forward unless McKinnon's production slips or he is injured.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon had 21 total touches to just seven for Matt Asiata, clearly passing him on the depth chart. FantasyScore owners will want to key on McKinnon going forward, especially if he heads into the next game with a mid-level salary.

Minnesota Vikings OG Vladimir Ducasse (knee) left the Week 7 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a knee injury, and C John Sullivan (concussion) exited due to a concussion. Both starting offensive linemen were unable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson will cost $5,200 (10.4% of cap) in FantasyScore this weekend. You may be able to find a safer option this week for close to the same amount of money.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin), LB Gerald Hodges (hamstring) and DE Corey Wootton (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 7 game. DT Sharrif Floyd (elbow, ankle) was limited in practice and is questionable. LB Chad Greenway (hand, rib) fully practiced and is questionable. CB Jabari Price (hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (ankle), TE Chase Ford (foot), S Harrison Smith (ankle) and LB Michael Mauti (illness) all fully participated in practice and are probable.

Fantasy Tip: Until Patterson can show that he can get open on a consistent basis, he's probably not a smart choice to grace your FantasyScore lineups. He'll cost you $5,200 (10.4% of cap) this weekend against the Buffalo Bills.
