Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:14:01 -0800
Minnesota Vikings DT Sharif Floyd (knee) and TE Chase Ford (hamstring, foot) are questionable for Week 13. LB Anthony Barr (knee), OT Michael X. Harris (ankle), OT Matt Kalil (knee), S Harrison Smith (shoulder, ankle) and WR Jarius Wright (hamstring) are probable.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph had a promising outing last week with three catches for 50 yards, but the Carolina Panthers have been solid against tight ends this season, yielding just two touchdowns to the position.
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:08:35 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Patterson ($4,700, 9.4%) isn't worth any price with the production he's had this year and with Charles Johnson coming on lately, even with a good matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:04:59 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,000, 10%) does have a good matchup facing the Carolina Panthers, but he hasn't played consistently this year and has been playing in the shadow of Charles Johnson in recent weeks.
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:00:46 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Asiata should get a lot of playing time with Jerick McKinnon ruled out. He's a good value play at just $4,100 on FantasyScore.
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:59:13 -0800
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.
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 11:08:10 -0800
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.

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) and TE Chase Ford (foot, hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27. FS Harrison Smith (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice, while LB Anthony Barr (knee), OT Michael X. Harris (ankle), OT Matt Kalil (knee) and WR Jarius Wright (hamstring) fully participated in practice.
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:53:39 -0800
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.
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:47:28 -0800
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
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.
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:37:03 -0800
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.
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:27:42 -0800
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.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:21:12 -0800
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.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:19:08 -0800
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.
