Vikings release Ben Tate
Didn't play in Week 16
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 23, 7:30 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings have waived running back Ben Tate after an unproductive month with the team. The Vikings claimed Tate last month after he had been waived by the Browns. He was active for all five games with the Vikings, but only played in three of them. He rushed for 38 yards on 13 carries. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Tate didn't see the field in Week 16 as Joe Banyard backed up starter Matt Asiata. Tate's fantasy value for this season is likely over unless he lands with a playoff team. Both the Colts and Cardinals showed some lukewarm interest in him earlier this season but in all likelihood his 2014 season is over.


Injury McKinnon place on IR, back injury
Asiata expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 6, 6:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings have placed running back Jerick McKinnon on injured reserve, ending his rookie season. McKinnon hurt his lower back and missed the last game against Carolina. He was already ruled out for Sunday, when the Vikings host the New York Jets. (Fox Sports)

FFToday's Take: McKinnon can be safely dropped in all redraft leagues. Expect the Vikings to use Matt Asiata and Ben Tate on Sunday against the Jets. Asiata would be a desperation FLEX play against a solid Jets run defense.


Injury Jerick McKinnon sits with back injury
Status for Sunday doesn't look good
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 28, 1:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings rookie running back Jerick McKinnon was the only player absent at Fridayís practice. McKinnon hasnít participated all week dealing with a lingering low back injury. His status at this point for Sundayís game against the Panthers doesnít look too good. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Having missed practice all week, McKinnon is a candidate for the inactive list. Matt Asiata is expected to return this week and and should split carries with Joe Banyard and newly acquired Ben Tate. The Vikings running back situation is one to avoid in Week 13.


Injury McKinnon misses practice, Asiata limited
Kyle Rudolph practices in full
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 26, 4:46 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Did not participate: TE Chase Ford (hamstring/foot), FS Harrison Smith (shoulder/ankle), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), RB Jerick McKinnon (low back) and DT Sharrif Floyd (knee). Limited participation: RB Matt Asiata (concussion), LT Matt Kalil (knee) and LB Anthony Barr (knee). Full participation: TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin), WR Jarius Wright (hamstring), WR Greg Jennings (rib) and RT Mike Harrison (ankle). (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: With Jerick McKinnon banged up, recent addition Ben Tate is likely to be worked into the rotation week 13. Until the backfield situation is worked out in Minnesota it is tough to trust any Viking running back for fantasy purposes.


Vikings claim Ben Tate off waivers
Minnesota gets "replacement" for Peterson
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 19, 4:27 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings claimed running back Ben Tate on waivers Wednesday from the Cleveland Browns, a league source told ESPN.com's Field Yates. In claiming Tate, the Vikings owe him $352,941 for 2014 in guaranteed base salary, plus another $46,875 for each game that he is on the 46-man game day roster. His 2015 salary is not guaranteed. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Adrian Peterson all but out for the rest of the season, and Matt Asiata working through the league's concussion protocol, the Vikings were in need of running back help. Expect a timeshare with McKinnon and Tate moving forward. This move derails the small value McKinnon currently has and puts both in RB4 territory.
