Scouting report

by Jordan Heck

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 10, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Washington
Matt Asiata, Ronnie Hillman and Jerick McKinnon have pretty much cancelled each other out in recent weeks. Asiata is probably the best back to own out of the three, but it's clearly a muddy mess that is a situation to stay away from for fantasy owners. If you absolutely need to play Asiata, he should be viewed as a very low-end RB3.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 9, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Detroit
Matt Asiata drew the start last week with Jerick McKinnon sidelined and finished with 78 total yards. He wasn't particularly great in the game, but he did enough to be serviceable in fantasy.

He'll split the backfield this week with McKinnon again, so we expect a little less production. He gets a decent matchup against the Lions and will be a decent flex option with a chance to get a goal-line score.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 8, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Chicago
Jerick McKinnon is expected to miss this week, which means Matt Asiata would be in line to get all (well, most of) the touches this week in the backfield. The dad-running, 3.3 yards per carry back isn't great, but it's hard not to like his opportunity.

There are few backs who have the backfields all to themselves, so Asiata should be a decent option this week. He doesn't have a great matchup, but all he needs is the patented Asiata touchdown to be worth a play. He's a low-end RB1 option.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 7, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. San Diego
The last time the Vikings played, Matt Asiata finished with over 100 yards and a touchdown. That's pretty solid for any player, but we don't expect him to continue that trend. We like Asiata as a possible flex play, but Jerick McKinnon is the main back in this offense.

On top of his role with the team, Asiata doesn't get a stellar matchup this week. He should still gets touches, but he's not much more than a low-end RB3 option.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 5, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Houston
Matt Asiata's game log reads exactly how you'd expect. Few carries, few yards and a touchdown. Asiata is always a candidate for a goal-line score, but he's not worth much more than that. He's only surpassed 20 yards one time this season. He's not really a fantasy option, even in a favorable matchup against the Texans.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 4, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. New York Giants
Matt Asiata had seven touches for 19 total yards last week. Jerick McKinnon was the primary ball handler in this two-man backfield, although he didn't play well, either. Still, McKinnon will get most of the touches while Asiata gets a few carries here and there.

Asiata gets a difficult matchup against the Giants this week, and is off the fantasy radar in most leagues. There's really no appeal to playing him.

MIN RB Matt Asiata - Week 3, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Carolina
Matt Asiata received most of the workload last week after Adrian Peterson was hurt, but coach Mike Zimmer named Jerick McKinnon as the starting back moving forward. He may not be starting, but Asiata will certainly have a role in the offense.

Some of you may remember Asiata from 2014 when he somehow willed his way to 882 yards and 10 touchdowns. Asiata has never been a great back, but he gets goal line touches and has remained on the roster, so he's still fantasy relevant.

Asiata will draw a tough matchup in Week 3, but there's a stronger chance of him scoring a touchdown than McKinnon. For that reason, we'll project Asiata as an RB3 or flex play.
