Fantasy Tip: Asiata would receive most of the work at running back in Week 17. He has a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears since they have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing running backs over the last four games. Asiata could be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should have a good chance to play in Week 17 even though he is limited. He will be facing a Chicago Bears defense that has struggled against wide receivers over the past four games. Jennings could be considered as a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has missed the last two practices, so there is a good chance he will not be able to play in Week 17. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using him this week. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely would see playing time at tight end, but neither is a great option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata has posted nine rushing touchdowns this season, and can be a help to FantasyScore owners in Week 17. Not only does he have a nose for the end zone, but he has good hands out of the backfield as well.

Fantasy Tip: Wright's status for the regular season finale is unclear, so check back Friday for a better idea on his status. If he plays, he could be a nice WR4 or flex option against a poor Bears pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been on a roll lately, finding the end zone in four of his past five games. Check back Friday when the official injury report comes out with his status. He could be a nice WR2 or flex option in FantasyScore against a leaky Chicago Bears pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph can be a Top 12 fantasy option at his position when healthy, but FantasyScore owners likely do not want to risk it on Rudolph even though he has a very attractive matchup against a poor Chicago Bears pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rudolph may not be able to play this week, but he does have a few more days to return to practice. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely would share playing time if Rudolph is not able to play. None of the Vikings tight ends are strong starting options for owners on FantasyScore for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Asiata ($5,555) should make for another good play as at least a flex option on FantasyScore versus the Chicago Bears, who are especially vulnerable through the air against running backs as they have allowed the fifth most receptions to the position this year.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 14:18:07 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Rudolph missed the last games because of ankle and knee injuries, but owners should monitor his practice participation this week to see if he can play in Week 17. Rudolph would have a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears but is a risky option FantasyScore because of his injuries.
