  Vikings | Ben Tate, Joe Banyard may see more time    Mon Dec 8, 05:16 PM

Minnesota Vikings RBs Ben Tate and Joe Banyard could receive more carries, because head coach Mike Zimmer thought RB Matt Asiata received too many carries in Week 14. Asiata received 19 of the 23 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Asiata is an average talent--he's basically a fullback who runs hard and can catch a few passes out of the backfield. Tate was added earlier this year after the Browns released him. Banyard was a star RB at UTEP, but injuries slowed down his college career. The most talented back is arguably Banyard, but this looks like an ugly 3-headed RBBC that fantasy owners should avoid.

  Vikings | Vikes promote one, cut one    Sat Sep 13, 06:18 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Joe Banyard was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Sept. 13. RB Zach Line was waived.

Footballguys view: Banyard was a talented runner in college at UTEP. He's a longshot to emerge if Adrian Peterson is extended for a long period of time. However, Banyard has strength, vision and balance as a runner. Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon are above him on the depth chart.

  Vikings | Practice squad signings    Mon Sep 1, 03:33 AM

Nine players were signed to the Minnesota Vikings practice squad on Sunday, Aug. 31. Players joining the squad include RB Joe Banyard, WR Kain Colter, DT Isame Faciane, TE Chase Ford, WR Donte Foster, CB Kendall James, C Zac Kerin, OL Mike Remmers and DT Justin Trattou.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should monitor Joe Banyard. He's battled back from various injuries, but when healthy Banyard is a fantastic runner. He's strong, has good vision and he can make defenders miss in the open field.

  Vikings | Plenty of totes for backup RBs    Sat Aug 9, 12:23 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon led the team with 12 carries and 45 yards in the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders Friday, Aug. 8. He was also targeted twice, although he had zero receptions. RB Dominique Williams had nine totes for 27 yards, while RB Joe Banyard hauled the mail eight times for 22 yards while posting 13 yards on two catches. RB Matt Asiata also had three runs for 13 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: McKinnon is part of a committee that will back up Adrian Peterson this year, but he could be a potential long-term replacement with his terrific measureables and upside as he converts to RB full-time.
