Vikings could draft a running back
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/14) The Vikings could draft a running back in the NFL Draft to help take the load off Adrian Peterson, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The report says the team is looking for a replacement for the departed Toby Gerhart and give Peterson a rest from time to time.

"He's getting to the point where you don't have to give him the ball 50 times a game for 16 games," said general manager Rick Spielman. "Adrian's the face of our franchise, but Norv (Turner) has a history of having two backs to keep him fresh, because I think it's very important as you go through the season that they're still strong in Week 16 and they're still strong when you get into the playoffs."

Minnesota doesn't have a surefire No. 2 back on the roster. Matt Asiata filled in for the injured Peterson and Gerhart in two games last December and performed admirably with 166 yards on 44 carries (a 3.8 average). But Asiata, entering his third season, is still raw.

After that, Minnesota has just Joe Banyard and Bradley Randle on the roster. They've mostly been practice squad players.

Vikings re-sign Matt Asiata
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/14) The Vikings re-signed running back Matt Asiata, an exclusive rights free agent, to a one-year, $570,000 contract. Asiata could back up Adrian Peterson if Toby Gerhart leaves via free agency.
Matt Asiata has nice day on the ground
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/13) Vikings running back Matt Asiata had a big game on the ground Week 17.

Asiata only had 14 carries, but managed to pick up 115 yards. He averaged 8.2 yards per carry. He was not a major force at the goal line this time around, as the team chose to try and get the ball in Cordarrelle Patterson's hands when they got close. Asiata also caught two passes for -2 yards. 

Matt Asiata ready to go Week 17
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/13) Vikings running back Matt Asiata is active Week 17.

Asiata should see the bulk of the carries with Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out. Asiata is dealing with an ankle injury, but was able to get through full practice Friday.

Matt Asiata probable Week 17
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/13) Vikings running back Matt Asiata is probable Week 17.

Asiata is dealing with an ankle injury, but was able to fully participate in practice Friday. Adrian Peterson is doubtful and Toby Gerhart is out, so Asiata could see a big chunk of the workload Week 17.
