AP/Gerhart both hurting, worth at least a discussion.

Considering they are out of the playoff race, he could actually be used somewhat. Most leagues usually end after week 16, so that would really only leave two weeks. Considering they play Cincy week 16, this guy really doesn't seem to have much, if any, fantasy relevance. Considering most people are in playoffs at the moment, no need to risk a playoff loss with this guy, even if you have AP and missed out on Gerhart, there will be better options.

In deep leagues beggers can't be pickers and every starting RB is an option. Even possibly Matt Asiata.

Got into the semis w/ a win last week starting Reece as my RB2 in a 14 team ppr. This week it's going to be Ogbonnaya, Gerhart, Todman, or Thomas.....and then Asiata stashed away in the back of my mind. Ya' never know.

Reece was proven though. I have no qualms plugging him in whenever he's Oaklands feature back. This guy...not so much

Looks like he had a nice preseason in 2012, judging from his gamelogs.

Does he have a newsletter? Blog? 900 number? If Matt Asiata goes off for 200 yards and 3 tds in the fantasy playoffs this guy needs to post here.

I drafted KC D - they had a fantastic early schedule and a lot of talent on that team. It was a great mid/late round pick.

After reading his height, weight and 40, I wanted to put that into perspective. I thought who is the slowest looking good running back in the league - Le'Veon Bell. His 40 time was 4.60...

Asiata is pretty slow, but he would definitely get goal line touches if there are any. He was a great RB at Utah (which I attended and so spent a lot of time watching him), but he had multiple ACL tears I believe and lost a lot of his speed.

He had decent hands out of the backfield, if Gerhart really can't go I wouldn't hesitate to roll him out there in a really deep league.

No speed or big play potential, but he's a pretty huge back and can get what's blocked.
