Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 16 vs GB (4 / 27 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 31 / 0 rec)

It was supposed to be the Mike Boone show this week, but Abdullah was the only back that seemed to make any sort of dent in the Packers defense. He led the team in targets and receptions and was the only back to average more than 5 yards per carry. HE caught 6 of his 7 targets with the longest going for 10 yards. Despite the immense pressure, the Vikings did not try and employ more screens and quick passes to running backs out of the back field until it was too late. If Mattison does not make it back next week, expect Abdullah to play a much bigger role in the offense against a stout Bears defense. His longest run went for 14 yards this week and accounted for what would have been half of Boone's total yards on a single carry

2019 Week 9 vs KC (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 16 / 1 rec)

It is tough being the third running back on the depth chart behind Cook and Mattison, but Abdullah was finally able to make his mark this week. He only had 2 touches against Kansas City with a single rush going for 2 yards, and a 16-yard catch. The catch was the important play as it went for a touchdown. Cousins found Abdullah on a wheel route out of the back field and he took the ball down the side line and into the end zone for the second touchdown of the game. The Vikings were not willing to move off of Cook as the primary rusher and there were not many touches to go around. Abdullah is buried on the depth chart and is not expected to see meaningful action barring an injury.
