Vikings | Greg Jennings probable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:40:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should be able to play this week despite the injury. Jennings has caught a touchdown in three of the last four games but not posted big receiving yards in those games. Jennings costs $5,200 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

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 | Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:23:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph likely will not play, so owners will need to find another tight end to use. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely will see playing time in Week 16, but neither player is a great option on FantasyScore even though they both cost $3,000.

Vikings | Greg Jennings limited

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:19:16 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,200) might be best left out of FantasyScore lineups as the Miami Dolphins have been better than average against wide receivers this year.

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 | Kyle Rudolph sitting out

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 09:46:44 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph's status for Week 16 is uncertain because of the injuries, so owners should continue to watch the situation. Rudolph has not put up great numbers since coming back from his hernia surgery. Rudolph costs $5,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using another option at the position.

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 | Greg Jennings limited

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 14:03:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,200), although not a sexy FantasyScore selection, could be an excellent under-the-radar play against the Miami Dolphins, who have surrendered 29.73 fantasy points per game in the last four weeks.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not on the field

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:58:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($5,300) probably won't be fully healthy for the final two games of the season, but the fact that he caught seven passes (seven targets) for 69 yards last week should be noted. He's a midrange tight end option at FantasyScore this week against the Miami Dolphins.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not 100%

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 07:20:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) disclosed he had both hips operated on during hernia surgery earlier in the season and admitted he won't be 100% the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had a season-high seven catches for 69 yards in Week 15. Rudolph ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) is a suspect TE1 on FantasyScore and more of a matchup play.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson expected two-game ban

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 07:30:37 -0800

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was told by executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent that he would serve a two-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy, instead of missing the entire season. Peterson's camp has an audio recording of the exchange that took place six days before he was suspended for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson can be dropped in all formats after his suspension was upheld. He turns 30 in March and will likely have some fantasy uncertainty in next year's drafts. He has been a machine throughout his career, and he could return with a vengeance or he could begin his inevitable decline.
