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

Asiata (ankle) had 14 carries for 115 rushing yards, as well as two catches on three targets for minus-two receiving yards Sunday against the Lions.

Asiata (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Injuries are holding Adrian Peterson (foot/groin) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) out of commission for the second time in three tilts, thereby allowing Asiata to handle the bulk of the workload out of the Vikings' backfield. Asiata will be hard-pressed to match his three-touchdown performance from Week 15, especially versus a Detroit defense that's surrendered five running back scores in the past 11 contests.
With Adrian Peterson (foot) officially ruled out, Asiata (probable-ankle) will start Sunday's game against Detroit, Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Asiata previously started in Week 15 against the Eagles, and he reached the end zone three times in that game, despite gaining just 66 yards on 33 touches (30 carries). While it's fair to assume that he'll register a bunch of touches Sunday, expectations should be held in check against a stingy Detroit run defense. As far as NFL running backs go, Asiata isn't particularly talented. Joe Banyard will serve as the backup Sunday, while both Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will be watching from the sidelines.
Asiata (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Toby Gerhart (hamstring) is out and Adrian Peterson (foot) is doubtful, so it looks like Asiata will return to the starting lineup against the Lions. He didn't show NFL-level running skills against the Eagles two weeks ago, but his 30 carries and three catches allowed him to pile up 66 yards and three touchdowns from scrimmage. The Lions are one of the best teams in the league at stopping the run, though, so expectations should probably be low for Asiata.
Asiata (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
