    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata figures to get a majority of the touches in Week 2 against the New England Patriots with RB Adrian Peterson deactivated. RB Jerick McKinnon is also expected to see touches.

    Huddle Up: Asiata will see the majority of the carries this week, while McKinnon has long-range upside. With Peterson's future unclear, both backs are on the fantasy radar. Asiata will get his shot first to be the primary ball carrier but if he struggles, the talented McKinnon is waiting in the wings.

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon could see the field more than backup RB Matt Asiata because of his ability as a receiver and change-of-pace runner outside or between the tackles.

    Huddle Up: Asiata would be the likely 20-carry back if Adrian Peterson were to go down, but as far as a complementary back receiving a half-dozen touches a game McKinnon is the more likely candidate. Assuming All Day stays on the field, however, neither holds much in the way of fantasy value.

    The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed exclusive rights free-agent RB Matt Asiata. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson owners, meet your new handcuff with Toby Gerhart now playing for the Jags.

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata is working to serve as the primary backup to RB Adrian Peterson now that RB Toby Gerhart (Jaguars) is gone. The team elected to keep the exclusive rights free agent, signing him to a one-year, $570,000 contract this month. General manager Rick Spielman said the team is looking for depth at running back, but the team hasn't displayed an urgency to address the spot the first two weeks of free agency.

    Huddle Up: Let's see how the rest of the Vikes' offseason plays out, but Asiata is the odds-on favorite as the Adrian Peterson handcuff role occupied by Gerhart the past several seasons. Asiata did make some waves in the fantasy postseason a year ago with his 3 rushing TDs in Week 15 and his 115 rushing yards in Week 17.
