Ameer Abdullah released by Vikings

Per Tom Pelissero, the Vikings have released veteran RB Ameer Abdullah.

Fantasy Impact

After being inactive on Sunday against the Cardinals, the Vikings released veteran RB Ameer Abdullah. The 28-year-old only took one snap for four yards in week 1.

Ameer Abdullah elevated to the Vikings active roster

Minnesota Vikings running back Ameer Abdullah was elevated to the team’s active roster on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Abdullah was elevated to the active roster for depth purposes. He will be the Vikings RB3 behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison. The former Detroit Lion primarily played special teams the past seasons. Rumors are swirling around that Mattison could be traded. The Vikings did spend a fourth-round pick on RB Kene Nwangwu, who is currently on the short-term injured reserve with a knee injury. Abdullah could see an uptick in fantasy value as Cook’s primary backup if the Vikings did move on from Mattison. For now, Abdullah is not on the fantasy radar in 2021.

Ameer Abdullah re-signing with Vikings

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Ameer Abdullah is re-signing with the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Abdullah saw limited action during the 2020 NFL season. He produced 42 yards on eight carries and caught eight passes for 58 yards and two touchdowns. The Vikings let Mike Boone walk so they needed some insurance and depth incase Dalvin Cook or Alexander Mattison went down with injury. Abdullah has no fantasy value and is not worth rostering.

Ameer Abdullah catches TD in Week 17 win

Ameer Abdullah brought in all three of his targets for seven yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 37-35 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With Dalvin Cook out, Abdullah saw some work behind Alexander Mattison and caught a short touchdown in the victory. Abdullah isn't worth a look in 2021 fantasy drafts, as he's clearly behind both Cook and Mattison in the backfield rotation.

Ameer Abdullah logs three touches in OT win

Ameer Abdullah rushed two times for 11 yards and caught an 18-yard reception in the Vikings’ 27-24 OT win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Abdullah saw some work with Alexander Mattison out, but Dalvin Cook remained the unquestioned bell cow, racking up nearly 40 total touches. Abdullah is off the fantasy radar and should be limited to just a smattering of touches for as long as Mattison is out.
