Turner: Matt Asiata to get bulk of carries Sunday against Dolphins

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/18/14) After it was reported the Vikings were going to use a running-back-by-committee approach once Jerrick McKinnon was lost for the season, offensive coordinator Norv Turner said Thursday Matt Asiata will get the majority of the carries when Minnesota travels to Miami Sunday.

"Well, Matt I think showed, I think he's shown throughout, but he's showed in the game that he's a guy that gives us the best all-around running, catching, [pass] protection," Turner said Thursday. "He had an outstanding game so I would expect Matt to get the bulk of the work and when there's opportunity to get someone else in there we'll do it."

Asiata is averaging 3.3 yards per carry this season with seven rushing touchdowns. Running backs Joe Banyard and Ben Tate appear to be on the back burner after Tate has had just 38 yards on 13 carries since going the Vikings. While Banyard has just 45 yards on 10 carries. 

Vikings RB Matt Asiata limited with foot injury

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/14) Vikings running back Matt Asiata was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a foot injury, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Asiata has received at least 12 touches in four of the past five games entering Week 16 at Miami.

Receptions keeping Matt Asiata viable

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/14) Let's face it: Vikings running back Matt Asiata isn't a great rusher. With his 11 carries for 36 yards Week 15 at Detroit, he's now averaging 3.3 yards per carry, or 3.0 since Jerick McKinnon went down in Week 13. But he makes up for it at least to some degree with his receiving.

Never was it more evident than in Week 15, when he caught seven passes for 50 yards, both season highs. Maybe that's the ceiling of what he can do, but he hasn't had less than three catches since Week 7, averaging 4.2 in six games.

Certainly in PPR leagues, that gives him a big boost in value, but the potential for an extra 20-plus yards makes a difference in standard leagues as well, especially since he's really the Vikings' only choice to carry the ball at the goal line, provided they make it there.

He's not an ideal start, particularly for a playoff-caliber Fantasy team, but for Week 16 at Miami, a team that has struggled against the run, you could do worse if you get in a pinch.

Vikings' Matt Asiata finds the end zone Week 15

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Vikings running back Matt Asiata managed to find the end zone Week 15 against the Lions.

Asiata didn't have a productive game on the ground, gaining just 33 yards on 11 carries. He was, however, efficient when it mattered, pounding in a 2 yard score in the first quarter. Minnesota opted to pass throughout the contest, leaving Asiata without many opportunities on the ground. He was able to make an impact as a pass-catcher, hauling in seven passes for 50 yards.

Asiata will look for more Week 16 against the Dolphins.

Vikings running back Matt Asiata rushes for 54 yards Sunday

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/14) Despite receiving the majority of the rushing carries, Vikings running back Matt Asiata failed to produce a big day during the Vikings’ 30-24 win over the Jets Sunday.

Asiata was held to 54 rushing yards on 19 attempts. Asiata caught three receptions for 10 yards on four targets, but was held scoreless. The 19 rushing attempts were the most Asiata received since Week 4. Asiata has yet to rush for more than 100 yards in any game this season.

The Vikings travel to Detroit Week 15.
