News: The Jaguars claimed tight end Allen Reisner off waivers Monday and added him to the active roster. Reisner, who was released by the Vikings last week, will occupy the roster spot vacated by running back Rashad Jennings, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Analysis: Reisner appeared in four games with the Vikings before being released and finished with just one catch for 13 yards. He could earn some looks for the Jaguars because of their extensive injury list, but is not viewed as a worthwhile Fantasy option at this point.
News: The Vikings activated cornerback Chris Cook on Saturday. Cook was on injured reserve but was designated to return. He missed eight weeks due to a broken arm. The team also activated defensive end George Johnson from the practice squad. Minnesota waived tight end Allen Reisner and guard Mark Asper to make room.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Reisner, out of Iowa, saw time in four games and caught one pass for 13 yards this season. Waived now, Reisner has no Fantasy value at this time.
News: The Vikings promoted tight end Allen Reisner from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday to fill the vacancy created when defensive back Chris Cook was placed on injured reserve. Reisner's promotion comes after fellow tight end John Carlson was ruled out for Week 9.
Analysis: Reisner played in Minnesota's first three games this season on special teams before being shipped to the practice squad to clear a roster spot for wide receiver Jerome Simpson. He is likely to be used primarily as a blocker and should be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News: With TE Kyle Rudolph doubtful for Week 12, the Vikings have brought TE Allen Reisner up from their practice squad, waiving WR Stephen Burton to make room.
Analysis: Rudolph caught his first career touchdown pass in Week 11 against Oakland, but wasn't being utilized much overall, ranking just 34th among Fantasy TEs in scoring. Reisner likely won't see much playing time and is just being put on the roster for depth, so you can ignore him in Fantasy leagues.
News: The Vikings signed FB Ryan D'Imperio to their 53-man roster on Tuesday. To make room, the team waived TE Allen Reisner.
Analysis: D'Imperio will not be in position to put up useful Fantasy numbers as a fullback. He should not be owned in Fantasy as a result. Reisner clearly has no Fantasy appeal as well.
News: The Vikings returned TE Allen Reisner to the 53-man roster on Saturday after letting him go earlier in the week.
Analysis: Reisner has been returned to the roster but certainly doesn't appear to be in line for much action on Sundays. He has low-end Fantasy value and can be ignored heading into Week 1.
News: The Vikings claimed former Texans LB Xavier Adibi off waivers Sunday afternoon, and they released tight end Allen Reisner to make room for him, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Analysis: Reisner appeared to have made the team as an undrafted free agent Saturday, but his time on the active roster lased only 24 hours. He will likely be brought on for the practice squad, but he remains an option to avoid in Fantasy play.
