Fantasy Tip: Rookie Jerick McKinnon had 21 total touches, and he went over 100 rushing yards in the loss. Asiata's fantasy star has clearly dimmed, and he appears to be second on the depth chart behind the Georgia Southern product. Avoid Asiata in FantasyScore going forward unless McKinnon's production slips or he is injured.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon had 21 total touches to just seven for Matt Asiata, clearly passing him on the depth chart. FantasyScore owners will want to key on McKinnon going forward, especially if he heads into the next game with a mid-level salary.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin), LB Gerald Hodges (hamstring) and DE Corey Wootton (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 7 game. DT Sharrif Floyd (elbow, ankle) was limited in practice and is questionable. LB Chad Greenway (hand, rib) fully practiced and is questionable. CB Jabari Price (hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (ankle), TE Chase Ford (foot), S Harrison Smith (ankle) and LB Michael Mauti (illness) all fully participated in practice and are probable.

Fantasy Tip: Until Patterson can show that he can get open on a consistent basis, he's probably not a smart choice to grace your FantasyScore lineups. He'll cost you $5,200 (10.4% of cap) this weekend against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has not been able to produce much over the last three weeks, but the team is looking to get him more involved. Patterson cost $5,200 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has missed the last several weeks while recovering from surgery and does not appear like he will return this week. Owners should avoid using him until he is healthy.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson entered a not guilty plea to the charge of injury to a child, according to documents filed to the 9th District Court in Montgomery County, Texas. His trial date is scheduled for Dec. 1, and a pretrial date is scheduled for Nov. 4, per court documents. Peterson will remain on the Exempt/Commissioner's permission list while he awaits trial.
Fantasy Tip: With Peterson's trial not scheduled to start for over a month, the likelihood that he plays again this year is extremely slim. If he's clogging up space on your roster, you can probably get away with dumping him at this point.

The Texas judge in Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's child abuse case has rejected the prosecutors' request to step aside because of what they termed bias and various recent legal disagreements. The decision Monday, Oct. 13, by Judge Kelly Case, who sits on the Montgomery County 9th District Court, comes after Case was said to have referred to the lead attorney of each side as "media whores." On Monday, Peterson entered a formal plea of not guilty on the abuse charge he is facing. The plea was entered Oct. 8, the day of his court appearance, but not made public until Monday afternoon.
