Matt Asiata: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Asiata (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Asiata has headed the Vikings' backfield in each of the past three games, racking up 44 carries for 142 yards and one touchdown, which he's supplemented with 14 receptions (on 15 targets) for 65 yards. Clearly, the presence of Ben Tate and Joe Banyard haven't affected Asiata's standing, but owners should keep an eye on the latter's week of practice to ensure he suits up Sunday at Miami.
Asiata had 11 carries for 36 yards and a touchdown and caught 7-of-7 targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 16-14 loss at Detroit.

With Jerick McKinnon (back) out against the Jets on Sunday, the Vikings figure to give snaps to all of Asiata, Joe Banyard and Ben Tate, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Asiata, starting in place of the injured Jerick McKinnon (back), had 14 carries for 52 rushing yards and four catches on four targets for five receiving yards Sunday against the Panthers.

Asiata (concussion) is active and will start Sunday's contest versus the Panthers, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After a one-game absence due to a concussion, Asiata rejoins a Vikings backfield without the services of Jerick McKinnon (lower back). In his two-plus years in the league, Asiata has garnered 14 or more carries on four occasions, accruing 79 rushes for 316 yards (4.0 YPC) and six touchdowns. Throwing a wrench in the ride-Asiata campaign are the existence of newcomer Ben Tate and Joe Banyard, but Asiata's knowledge of the offensive scheme will likely work in his favor.
Asiata (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Asiata practiced all week, including full practices Thursday and Friday, so he's ready to go for Sunday. With Jerick McKinnon (back) likely out, the Vikings figure to lean on some uncertain combination of Asiata, Ben Tate and Joe Banyard against the Panthers, though there's not much information regarding how that distribution of work might occur. As the incumbent starter following Adrian Peterson's absence, Asiata definitely has the seniority advantage. Tate is conventionally regarded as the more talented player, but he has very little experience in the Minnesota system after the Vikings claimed him off waivers just Wednesday of last week.
