Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Asiata's raw output isn't impressive -- 200 yards on 60 carries, or 3.3 YPC, in the past four games -- he's reached the end zone three times, while reeling in 17 balls (on 19 targets) for 84 yards during that stretch. His goal-line prowess should again please owners Sunday against a Bears defense that has allowed seven scores on the ground to running backs in the last four weeks.
Asiata (foot) had 16 carries for 58 rushing yards and two touchdowns, as well as three catches on four targets for 19 receiving yards during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

An almost fullback-sized 6-0, 234 pounds, Asiata was thrust into the starting job last season following Adrian Peterson's suspension, and quickly demonstrated both his strengths and liabilities. He runs with the power you'd expect from a player his size, and his low pad level allows him to break tackles, grind out extra yards and be a force in short-yardage situations, but he lacks the foot speed or elusiveness to break many big gains. In fact, his longest run last year went for just 19 yards, and the Vikings gradually dialed back Asiata's role as the season progressed to form a backfield committee with the flashier Jerick McKinnon. Despite Peterson's tumultuous 2014, he's still expected back in Minnesota to resume his duties as the lead back, but Asiata's effectiveness at the goal line and Peterson's own advancing odometer may result in Asiata retaining a somewhat significant role.

2014

Asiata was a hero to Adrian Peterson owners (and riverboat gamblers who rolled him out) in Weeks 15 and 17 last year, delivering a three-touchdown performance and a 115-yard game, respectively, in the injured star's stead. This year, with Toby Gerhart out of the picture, he's got the line on backup duties in Minnesota. But even though AP is susceptible to injury, it's hard to get excited over the plodding Asiata, whose 4.77 40 time may be the worst among all NFL running backs. The Vikings drafted Jerick McKinnon in the third round, and it seems likely that even if something does happen to Peterson, Asiata will at best split time with the electric rookie.

2013

Asiata will work as a reserve back and special teams player in 2013.

2012

Asiata will try to win a reserve running back role, but he's a special teamer at best.
