Vikings | Door open for Matt Asiata return

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 10:31:56 -0800

Free-agent RB Matt Asiata (Vikings) is looking at other teams and waiting for some of the top free-agent running backs to sign, but he has not ruled out a return to the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata is a good goal-line back, but he does little more than block Jerick McKinnon from maintaining any sustainable value in fantasy. The Vikings seem like a good bet to add a running back this offseason - be it bringing back Adrian Peterson, signing Eddie Lacy or drafting one - so Asiata may find he doesn't have a suitor for his services if he waits too long. He'll be an RB5 at best regardless of where he signs.

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 12:07:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Matt Asiata plans to test the free-agent market and there is a decent chance that he does not re-sign with the Vikings, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata probably will not be able to find a starting job this offseason but should receive interest from teams looking for a back that runs between the tackles. He probably will be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on where he signs.

Vikings | Matt Asiata will play in Week 15

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (ankle) will be active in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: The earlier news that Peterson will play and start effectively undermines any fringe value Asiata may have had. He's too risky to trot out there for your playoff game.

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed 11 times for a team-high 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also had two catches for 14 yards on his two targets.
