Vikings | Matt Asiata scores again

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 13:32:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata totaled 41 yards and a touchdown, including three catches, Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata continues to score from close to the endzone. He has vulture several touchdowns this year and is known for being too touchdown reliant. He's more rosterable in PPR formats, but don't view his recent success as an every-week occurrence.

Vikings | Matt Asiata on track to play

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 15:38:20 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata will continue to share work with Jerick McKinnon but does have value because he should receive the work around the goal line. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Asiata.

Vikings | Matt Asiata takes part in practice

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 12:06:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata should continue to share snaps with Jerick McKinnon during games and will see most of the work around the goal line. He has not rushed for more than 55 yards in any game this season but does have three touchdowns in the last six weeks. Owners in most leagues probably can find better options to use and can avoid Asiata.

Vikings | Matt Asiata full go

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 15:05:11 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata has had a hit or miss career for the most part, and 2016 has been no exception. He's too dependent on touchdowns to be a reliable fantasy starter, especially with Jerick McKinnon in the mix. The fact that the Arizona Cardinals have been the best fantasy defense against running backs this year is icing on the cake.

Vikings | Matt Asiata grinds out 78 total yards

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 21:35:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed 14 times for 42 yards in the Week 8 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 31, and he added two receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata would be worth a look as a flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions if he is given the lion's share of the touches again.

Vikings | Matt Asiata struggles

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 13:54:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata had 55 yards rushing in a 21-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The two-pronged attack of Asiata and Jerick McKinnon combined for 98 yards but had no touchdowns. Philadelphia did a good job singling out Minnesota's rushing attack. Still, it appears the Vikes have a running-by-committee situation here, so wait until one athlete breaks out before acting.

Vikings | Matt Asiata finds the end zone

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:03:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata carried 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans. He also hauled in three receptions for 46 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata outperformed Jerick McKinnon, and this could be a situation worth monitoring heading into Week 7 after the team's bye. Asiata could have bought himself more touches after the solid performance, making him worth a look as an RB3 in two weeks.

Vikings | Matt Asiata finds the end zone

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 21:03:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed six times for just six yards in the Week 4 game against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 3, but he was able to run in for a score. Asiata also added two catches for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata is the short-yardage back in Minnesota and you shouldn't expect a huge average yards per play from the back. He is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

Vikings | Matt Asiata has quiet Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:17:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata was facing a tough Panthers defense and should play better moving forward. He will receive playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is sidelined but will not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

Vikings | Matt Asiata to start Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:13:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata will be the starting running back for the Vikings in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata should receive a decent amount of carries this week and likely will run between the tackles, while Jerick McKinnon will be used as a runner as well as a receiver out of the backfield. Both players are facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense but could still be flex options in fantasy leagues.
