Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,200) might be best left out of FantasyScore lineups as the Miami Dolphins have been better than average against wide receivers this year.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Asiata's status leading up to the weekend. If he is able to play, he'll have a decent matchup with the Miami Dolphins, who allow just over 100 rushing yards per game to running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph's status for Week 16 is uncertain because of the injuries, so owners should continue to watch the situation. Rudolph has not put up great numbers since coming back from his hernia surgery. Rudolph costs $5,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using another option at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata ($4,600) gains some value with Jerick McKinnon out for the year. Also, Asiata should be a nice value play at FantasyScore this week. He's had double-digit carries in each of the last three weeks, and the Miami Dolphins have been very vulnerable on the ground of late.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,200), although not a sexy FantasyScore selection, could be an excellent under-the-radar play against the Miami Dolphins, who have surrendered 29.73 fantasy points per game in the last four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($5,300) probably won't be fully healthy for the final two games of the season, but the fact that he caught seven passes (seven targets) for 69 yards last week should be noted. He's a midrange tight end option at FantasyScore this week against the Miami Dolphins.

Minnesota Vikings OG Charlie Johnson (ankle), S Robert Blanton (ankle, knee), DT Linval Joseph (illness) and LB Anthony Barr (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had a season-high seven catches for 69 yards in Week 15. Rudolph ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) is a suspect TE1 on FantasyScore and more of a matchup play.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was told by executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent that he would serve a two-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy, instead of missing the entire season. Peterson's camp has an audio recording of the exchange that took place six days before he was suspended for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson can be dropped in all formats after his suspension was upheld. He turns 30 in March and will likely have some fantasy uncertainty in next year's drafts. He has been a machine throughout his career, and he could return with a vengeance or he could begin his inevitable decline.
