Description: Minnesota halfback Matt Asiata ran for a career-high 115 yards on 14 carries Sunday against Detroit.
Insight: He did lose a fumble but other than that, Asiata was phenomenal in his second start of the season. Obviously, he won't be of any use next season when Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart (depending on if Minnesota re-signs him) are both healthy again.

Description: Vikings running back Matt Asiata, who was a huge surprise in Week 15, touching the ball 33 times and coming away with three touchdowns, could once again be a factor in Week 17.
Insight: The Vikings put both Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart on the inactive list.

Description: Vikings running back Matt Asiata who was a huge surprise last week, touching the ball 33 times and coming away with three touchdowns, is inactive for Week 16.
Insight: Asiata wasn't going to play with Arian Peterson and Toby Gerhart back in the lineup.

Description: Vikings running back Matt Asiata came into Sunday's game with three carries all season, but with Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out he touched the ball 33 times and came away with three touchdowns.
Insight: Asiata only had 51 yards despite getting 30 carries against the Eagles, but as we know all it takes is a touchdown or two to bring home a big fantasy score.

Description: Seldom used running back Matt Asiata will make the start in Week 15 for the Minnesota Vikings.
Insight: Both Adrian Peterson and Tobt Gerhart are inactive. Despite the obvious heavy workload he'll get, we're not sure that you want to start Asiata against an improving Eagles defense.
