2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Matt Asiata returns to the Vikings on a one-year deal in 2015, and once again finds himself with an uphill climb to fantasy relevance. What he lacks in athletic ability, Asiata makes up for in preparation and determination. He was an absolute beast in the red zone last season filling in for Peterson, as he turned 30 of his carries into 9 touchdowns. The problem for fantasy owners relying on Asiata, was his touchdown dependent nature. Sandwiched around two monster three-touchdown games, Asiata had 9 games under 8 fantasy points. His lack of playmaking ability outside the 20ís was his downfall, and the Vikings know he isnít a long term answer at the position. What he is a mediocre insurance policy for Peterson and McKinnon, and not someone that should be targeted for fantasy value unless there is a code red emergency.

News From The Past 90 Days
McKinnon, Asiata competing for backup RB job
Peterson expected to be used more on third downs
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 17, 11:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Itís clear who the Vikings will use as their starting running back, but Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will compete for the backup role. We expected to see Peterson used more in third down situations last year, and Adrian Peterson believes that will be the case again this year in his return. Weíll see if Peterson, 30, will need to participate in a preseason game after his suspension, but everyone around the organization expects him to have a huge year. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: If Peterson does play more on third downs, that will cut into opportunities for McKinnon and Asiata. Expect McKinnon to emerge as Peterson's backup but whoever wins the job out of camp will be nothing more than a handcuff for Peterson owners.
