    Free-agent RB Matt Asiata (Vikings) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Friday, May 26, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Asiata will be joining a running back group that includes Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington. He probably will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp and likely can be avoided in most fantasy leagues because he would see limited carries.

  • Posted: 12/14/2016 1:25pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Asiata has been sharing snaps with Jerick McKinnon over the last few months and has scored a touchdown in four of his last five games. Asiata can be a flex option in deeper leagues since he will continue to see a decent amount of carries.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 10:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed 11 times for a team-high 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also had two catches for 14 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Asiata and Jerick McKinnon basically split the backfield touches right down the middle. Despite the foray into the end zone, Asiata is more of a low-end RB3 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 9:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed 14 times for 42 yards in the Week 8 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 31, and he added two receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Asiata would be worth a look as a flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions if he is given the lion's share of the touches again.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata carried 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans. He also hauled in three receptions for 46 yards.

    Huddle Up: Asiata outperformed Jerick McKinnon, and this could be a situation worth monitoring heading into Week 7 after the team's bye. Asiata could have bought himself more touches after the solid performance, making him worth a look as an RB3 in two weeks.

  • Posted: 10/3/2016 9:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed six times for just six yards in the Week 4 game against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 3, but he was able to run in for a score. Asiata also added two catches for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: Asiata is the short-yardage back in Minnesota and you shouldn't expect a huge average yards per play from the back. He is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 1:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for four yards.

    Huddle Up: Asiata was facing a tough Panthers defense and should play better moving forward. He will receive playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is sidelined but will not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 9:13am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata will be the starting running back for the Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Asiata should receive a decent amount of carries this week and likely will run between the tackles, while Jerick McKinnon will be used as a runner as well as a receiver out of the backfield. Both players are facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense but could still be flex options in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 11:09am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon will be the starting running back with RB Adrian Peterson (knee) sidelined. He likely will play at least 60 percent of the snaps. RB Matt Asiata will also receive playing time and likely will handle the goal line carries.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon will be able to help out in the running and passing game over the next few months and should be a popular waiver wire addition. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues. Asiata will also have value and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his touchdown potential.
