 Matt Asiata, RB, MINHot9/16/2014 6:31:00 PM 
Description: ProFootballTalk reports that it should not be a surprise if the Vikings reverse their decision to activate running back Adrian Peterson for Week 3. Insight: That means Matt Asiata has a decent chance to start again against New Orleans. He rushed 13 times fo 36 yards and caught five passes for 48 yards with a touchdown versus New England in Week 2. In a pinch, he is a viable FLEX or RB2 option in 12 or 14 team leagues.
 Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN9/16/2014 6:24:00 PM 
Description: Profootballtalk reports the Vikings could still reverse the decision to reinstate running back Adrian Peterson. Insight: Although it is extremely unlikely Minnesota releases Peterson like Baltimore did to Ray Rice, the call for Peterson\'s head in the press will not be ignored. The governor of Minnesota is calling for "All Day" to be suspended and Radisson suspended its sponorship of the Vikings due to Peterson\'s indictment for child abuse. Do not drop Matt Asiata yet as there is at least a 50/50 chance that Peterson will again be inactive in Week 3.

 Jake Peavy, SP, BOSHot9/17/2014 12:24:00 AM 
Description: Giants starter Jake Peavy pitched seven and 2/3 innings of one run ball, struck out four and walked one to beat the Diamondbacks, 2-1, on Tuesday. Insight: Peavy allowed five hits. Since the trade to San Francisco, Peavy is 6-4 with a 2.16 ERA. He has also allowed just six runs in his last 48 innings.
 Buster Posey, C, SFGHot9/17/2014 12:22:00 AM 
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a solo home run as San Francisco defeated Arizona, 2-1, on Tuesday. Insight: Posey has continued his very strong second half with an incredible .449 batting average in September. He also has a slugging percentage off the charts in the month (.673) and an OPS of 1.146. With so many MVP candidates injured, Posey is a viable candidate in the NL.

 Greg Monroe, PF, DET9/9/2014 2:49:00 PM 
Description: Detroit PF/C Greg Monroe has been suspended for two games after pleading guilty to a DUI. Insight: The loss of two games shouldn\'t change his fantasy value over an 82-game schedule. He averaged 15.2 ppg, 9.3 rpg and 2.1 apg last season. Monroe\'s season debut is now Nov 1 against the Brooklyn Nets.
 Derrick Rose, G, CHI9/3/2014 12:31:00 PM 
Description: Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is planning on playing in three games over three days for Team USA. Insight: This is a nice test for fantasy owners for whether Rose will be able to withstand an NBA schedule or whether he\'ll need off games in back-to-backs like Dwyane Wade did last season.

 Steve Mason, G, PHI8/21/2014 1:56:00 PM 
Description: Flyers goalie Steve Mason (finger) returned to the ice this week after not skating the past three weeks according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Insight: He suffered a broken pinky finger while playing ball hockey, but Mason should be ready for training camp. He posted a 33-18 record with a 2.50 goals against average in 61 games last year.
 Clarke MacArthur, LW, OTT8/21/2014 1:48:00 PM 
Description: Left wing Clarke MacArthur and the Senators have come to terms on a five-year extension. Insight: MacArthur went on to tell the Ottawa Sun that he will not change the way he plays the game. "Just because I\'ve got a five-year deal, that doesn\'t mean I need to change a whole lot. I kind of want to play the same game. I want to play good in both ends." MacArthur had 24 goals and 31 assists in his first season in Ottawa last year.
