Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:00:46 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) is probable for Week 13.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon officially doubtful

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:59:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) has officially been listed as doubtful for Week 13. McKinnon has already said that he will not play.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Asiata and Ben Tate figure to see the majority of work out of the backfield with McKinnon out. Asiata's price of $4,100 on FantasyScore could make for a nice flex option in a favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon to miss Week 13

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 11:08:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) said he has been ruled out for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Asiata and Ben Tate likely will receive carries this week with Asiata receiving a majority of the work, because he is more familiar with the offense. Asiata costs $4,100 on FantasyScore and could be a nice sleeper option for owners at running back or the flex position.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph practices

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:53:39 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph probably will be more involved in the passing game as he returns from his injuries. Owners could consider using Rudolph this week if they are looking to save some money at the position.

Vikings | Greg Jennings practices in full

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:47:28 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a bit inconsistent this season but is coming off a solid Week 12 performance. Jennings has a price of $5,000 on FantasyScore and could be a good option since the Carolina Panthers have struggled against opposing wide receivers.

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:41:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata appears to be on track to play in Week 13 and should receive some carries during the game. Asiata costs $4,100 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap flex option for owners.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson misses practice

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:37:03 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's status for Week 13 is uncertain, so owners should continue to monitor his situation during the rest of the week. Patterson costs $4,700 on FantasyScore, but owners should look to use better options in their starting lineups.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon sits out

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:27:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check his practice participation Friday, Nov. 28, to see if he makes any progress. McKinnon could share work with Matt Asiata if he is active and may not be the best option to use on FantasyScore at $5,400.

Vikings | Full practice for Kyle Rudolph

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:21:12 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had three catches (five targets) for 50 yards in his second game back from injury. That's encouraging, and he should continue to be a bigger part of the offense down the stretch. More good news: the Carolina Panthers have been especially vulnerable to tight ends recently. Consider Rudolph as a sleeper option at his position at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Greg Jennings a full participant

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:19:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings scored his third TD of the season last week, giving him some momentum going into the game against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina has given up an average of 25.39 fantasy points per game to receivers this year, which bodes well for Jennings ($5,000) at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Matt Asiata says he'll play in Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:14:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, and he said he'll play in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers. "It's always tough to sit out and watch your team," Asiata said after the workout. "But I'm back, and I'm cleared up, and I'm ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: Asiata ($4,100) returns to find a three-headed monster in the Vikings backfield, with Jerick McKinnon ($5,400) and Ben Tate ($3,700) also involved. If Asiata receives enough touches, he could be a bargain play at FantasyScore against the Panthers.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson sits out

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:11:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the Panthers have been poor at stopping receivers this season, Patterson ($4,700) shouldn't receive a vote of confidence at FantasyScore because of his inability to make much of an impact on offense all year. Charles Johnson has basically surpassed Patterson as far as potential for the Vikes.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon misses practice

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:08:39 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon saw the bulk of the carries in Week 12 with Matt Asiata (concussion) out, and that should be the case again in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers. However, the workload could be split more evenly between Asiata and Tate if Asiata returns, making McKinnon's $5,400 FantasyScore price a bit sketchy.
