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.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph a full go

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:16:53 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph is slowly getting eased back in to game action, and should not be considered in FantasyScore.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:15:48 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will get the start this week, but there is risk here, especially f the Vikings fall behind early and have to throw the ball a lot. There are probably better options available to you in FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson's appeal hearing set

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:49:55 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's appeal hearing is scheduled to occur Dec. 2, and commissioner Roger Goodell will not be in charge of the hearing. Former NFL employee Harold Henderson will be the hearing officer.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will know more about Peterson's status after a decision is made on his appeal. Owners in deeper leagues should continue to hold onto Peterson if they have the roster space.

Vikings | Matt Asiata sits out Friday

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 10:04:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) missed his third straight day of practice Friday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: We'll have to wait and see what Asiata's status is for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, but it doesn't look good. Ignore him at FantasyScore. Jerick McKinnon ($5,400) should continue to take the lead-back duties, but newly-signed Ben Tate ($4,900) could have a pretty significant role in his team debut if Asiata is out. Tate makes for an interesting flex option, especially if he sees goal-line work.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson contemplates move

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 07:53:28 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he'll gladly return this season if he wins the appeal of his indefinite suspension. If he loses his appeal and has to sit out the rest of this season, he's not certain he'll return with the Vikings. He has given a lot of thought to the idea of getting a fresh start somewhere else.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be owned until his appeal is heard, which is expected to occur soon.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:27:04 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Offensive coordinator has already said McKinnon will keep his starting role even with RB Ben Tate now in town. The risk with McKinnon and all the Minnesota Vikings running backs, and why they're risky plays this week, is that they'll have to pass a lot if they fall behind to the Green Bay Packers.

Vikings | Greg Jennings missing practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:36:39 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ribs) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if he is able to do anything during practice Friday, Nov. 21. Jennings costs $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending a little more on a better option.

Vikings | Matt Asiata sitting again

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:26:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata will have to pass his concussion tests before being cleared to play, so he could miss Week 12. Jerick McKinnon and Ben Tate likely would see time at running back if Asiata is ruled out. McKinnon likely would receive a majority of the work since Tate joined the team earlier in the week. McKinnon costs $5,400 on FantasyScore and could be a good starting option. Owners should avoid using Ben Tate until he has a better understanding of the offense.
