Minnesota Vikings news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:21:12 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had three catches (five targets) for 50 yards in his second game back from injury. That's encouraging, and he should continue to be a bigger part of the offense down the stretch. More good news: the Carolina Panthers have been especially vulnerable to tight ends recently. Consider Rudolph as a sleeper option at his position at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings scored his third TD of the season last week, giving him some momentum going into the game against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina has given up an average of 25.39 fantasy points per game to receivers this year, which bodes well for Jennings ($5,000) at FantasyScore.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the Panthers have been poor at stopping receivers this season, Patterson ($4,700) shouldn't receive a vote of confidence at FantasyScore because of his inability to make much of an impact on offense all year. Charles Johnson has basically surpassed Patterson as far as potential for the Vikes.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon saw the bulk of the carries in Week 12 with Matt Asiata (concussion) out, and that should be the case again in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers. However, the workload could be split more evenly between Asiata and Tate if Asiata returns, making McKinnon's $5,400 FantasyScore price a bit sketchy.

Minnesota Vikings OT Michael X. Harris is expected to start in Week 13 in place of injured OT Phil Loadholt (pectoral). The team also briefly used OT Austin Wentworth at right tackle during the preseason and head coach Mike Zimmer said they might bring in more help at the tackle position.

Minnesota Vikings OT Phil Loadholt (pectoral) suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Week 12 and miss the rest of the season, according to a source. Loadholt will need to undergo surgery to repair his pectoral muscle.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Patterson's injuries are not clear, but nagging injuries have hampered him all season. At the tail end of the 2013 season, he showed some signs of brilliance, but lower-body injuries have kept him from hitting his highest gear for most of this season. FantasyScore owners should avoid him going forward until he can prove his health in one full game.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has led the Vikings in receiving yardage in each of the past two games, emerging as a sleeper WR2 or flex play in FantasyScore leagues, especially at a very low salary.
