Summary

Matt Asiata benefited from a suspended Adrian Peterson last season and Asiata found the endzone 10 times for the Vikings. He had 9 rushing touchdowns and 1 receiving touchdown and finished with 570 rushing yards and with 44 receptions for 312 yards. With rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater under center, Asiata was a nice outlet for him when he was in trouble. Asiata will unfortunately take a back seat when Adrian Peterson comes back as the Vikings star RB to open up the 2015 season. Asiata could spell Peterson on occasion and if Peterson were to miss anytime he would be next in line to handle the majority of the carries. Asiata will battle Jerick McKinnon for carries behind Peterson and will likely see limited carries causing him to have little impact on the offense moving forward. As long as Peterson is on the field, Asiata is going to be hard pressed to find touches. (May 16)
