Minnesota Vikings RBs Ben Tate and Joe Banyard could receive more carries, because head coach Mike Zimmer thought RB Matt Asiata received too many carries in Week 14. Asiata received 19 of the 23 carries during the game.
Fantasy Tip: Asiata probably will still receive a majority of the carries but will see his number of touches go down with Tate and Banyard receiving more carries. Asiata should only be considered a desperate flex option for owners, while Tate and Banyard should not be considered for starting lineups.

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon led the team with 12 carries and 45 yards in the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders Friday, Aug. 8. He was also targeted twice, although he had zero receptions. RB Dominique Williams had nine totes for 27 yards, while RB Joe Banyard hauled the mail eight times for 22 yards while posting 13 yards on two catches. RB Matt Asiata also had three runs for 13 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: The reserve running backs were getting plenty of work with Adrian Peterson resting, and with Peterson not expected to play in the preseason, they all are likely to get plenty of work. Asiata appears to be slotted as the primary backup with McKinnon as the No. 3 running back and Banyard and Williams battling for the No. 4 job, although that is still subject to change. Only Asiata is worth any fantasy consideration at this point.
