The Lions have signed RB Matt Asiata. A fantasy undertaker in Minnesota, Asiata vultured 19 total TDs over the past 4 seasons -- despite averaging just 3.5 yards per carry. He joins Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington in Detroit's backfield. Those final 2 and Asiata might be battling for 1 or 2 roster spots. We hope Asiata doesn't turn into a fantasy factor again.

Vikings RB Matt Asiata (ankle, illness) will play against the Colts today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Will work into three-RB rotation," Schefter adds. We'd bet on Jerick McKinnon and Adrian Peterson seeing more action that Asiata. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups.

Vikings RB Matt Asiata was added to Friday’s injury report with an ankle issue. He’s also dealing with an illness, according to the Vikings’ official site. Asiata didn’t practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Colts. His absence would be a big boost to RB Jerick McKinnon.

The Vikings list RB Matt Asiata as their starter for today's game against the Panthers. It doesn't mean much but does confirm that Asiata will play a significant role. We're still betting on Jerick McKinnon leading the backfield in touches, but he's a lower-end RB2 with Asiata stealing work. Asiata is a TD-dependent RB3 or flex.

Vikings RB Matt Asiata signed a 1-year deal Monday to avoid restricted free agency. The small new contract indicates that he wouldn't have drawn much interest from other suitors. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that he chose an "incentive-laced" deal over the $1.54 million RFA tender. Minnesota will be better off if Asiata plays a smaller role in 2015.
