Vikings | Jerick McKinnon shows big-play ability

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:48:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has rushed for at least five yards on 22 of his 60 carries this season, amassing 245 yards on those 22 attempts.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's ability to consistently rip off big runs has allowed him to become the main back for the Vikings. Matt Asiata will probably keep stealing the goal-line carries, but McKinnon is the much better fantasy play at this point. He will take up 10.6% of the cap ($5,300) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he makes a great mid-level play with the Vikings facing an awful Tampa Bay defense.

Vikings | Matt Asiata sees limited touches

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:56:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata carried just six times for 24 yards in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills, while posting one reception for 13 yards.

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.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon hits century mark

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:55:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon carried 19 times for 103 yards in the Week 7 game against the Buffalo Bills, and he had two receptions which resulted in minus-2 yards.

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.

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:53:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

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.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson enters not guilty plea

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:45:57 -0700

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.
