  • Abdullah agreed to a contract Wednesday with Minnesota, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 2015 second-round pick never panned out as a lead ballcarrier, but he's carved out a six-year career to this point by living on special teams. He's played only 212 offensive snaps in 39 career games for the Vikings, taking 55 touches for 313 yards and three touchdowns. Abdullah will likely enter training camp as Minnesota's third or fourth running back, but he could be the top option for kick returns.

  • Abdullah ended his 2020 season carrying the ball eight times for 42 yards and catching eight of his nine targets for 58 yards in 16 games. He also had two touchdown receptions Abdullah hasn't been a fantasy asset since 2017 with the Lions. In three seasons since then between Detroit and Minnesota, he has 58 touches in 42 games. With Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison ahead of him on the depth chart, the 27-year-old Abdullah wasn't a vital part of the Vikings' ground attack. Abdullah, an unrestricted free agent once again, won't be much more than a depth option wherever he lands.

  • Abdullah returned one kickoff for 30 yards during Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Bears. The 27-year-old had eight offensive touches over the previous two contests, but he played only one offensive snap with the return of Alexander Mattison Sunday. However, Mattison suffered a concussion, so Abdullah could return to a minor offensive role down the stretch.

  • Abdullah had three carries for 11 yards and two receptions for ten yards in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay. Abdullah continues to get more work with Alexander Mattison (abdomen) out, but neither he nor Mike Boone (four snaps) are getting enough touches for viable fantasy value in most formats. Dalvin Cook continues to get almost all the work (22 carries, two receptions and played on 54 of the offense's 79 snaps) as the starting running back.

  • Abdullah rushed twice for 11 yards and caught his lone target for 18 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win against the Jaguars. With Alexander Mattison (abdomen) out, Abdullah handled just four snaps on offense, while Mike Boone played just two. Dalvin Cook simply absorbed Mattison's workload and finished with 38 touches and an 87 percent snap share. In turn, Abdullah can't be trusted as a fantasy player unless both Cook and Mattison are sidelined.
