Ameer Abdullah re-signs with Vikings

The Vikings have re-signed RB/KR Ameer Abdullah to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

It was only a few years ago when Abdullah was considered one of the most promising young running backs in football. He was claimed mid-season off waivers from the Lions in 2018, and managed to carve out a role for himself on special teams. He'll likely remain Minnesota's main return man after averaging 25.8 yards per return last season. He'll also help back up Dalvin Cook with Latavius Murray now in New Orleans.

Ameer Abdullah gets claimed by the Vikings

Vikings claimed former Lions RB Ameer Abdullah in waivers, per Adam Schefter on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

This is a move by the Vikings to add depth to their backfield. With Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray already on the roster, Abdullah will not see to much action. He will not be relevant in fantasy unless a couple of injuries occur.

Ameer Abdullah waived by Lions

The Lions waived Ameer Abdullah to make room for Bruce Ellington.

Fantasy Impact

Abdullah had no fantasy value this season, even when Theo Riddick was out of the lineup. While he will likely be added as a depth piece by another team, he's not a fantasy option in any format wherever he lands.

Ameer Abdullah totals 13 yards Week 7

Ameer Abdullah tallied his first yards of the season Sunday against the Dolphins. He carried once and caught a pass for 13 total yards.

Fantasy Impact

Abdullah was active, but he didn't factor into the game nearly as much as Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount. And that was with Theo Riddick sidelined due to injury. While Abdullah has flashed in the past, it doesn't look like he's going to be very involved in the Lions' backfield in the near future.

Ameer Abdullah active for Week 7

Ameer Abdullah is active for the Lions' Week 7 game against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

With Theo Riddick out for this game, Abdullah will take the role of the Lions' third running back. It's unclear whether he'll fill Riddick's third-down/pass-catching role, though he has had some success as a receiver in the past. He's a very low-end dart throw, however.
