Vikings Re-Sign Ameer Abdullah

The Minnesota Vikings re-signed running back Ameer Abdullah to an undisclosed deal on Friday. Abdullah, a second-round pick of the Lions in the 2015 draft, only had 23 rushing attempts for 115 yards (5.0 yards per carry) and no rushing scores in his first full season with the Vikings in 2019. He added 15 receptions on 21 targets for 88 yards and one touchdown. Behind Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison and Michael Boone on the running back depth chart, Abdullah is unlikely to move the needle in fantasy once again in 2020 unless Minnesota's running backs are hit hard by the injury bug.

Ameer Abdullah Staying With Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings re-signed running back Ameer Abdullah to an undisclosed deal on Monday. Minnesota picked Abdullah up on waiver last year, and he ended the season the team's primary kick returner after flaming out in four seasons with the Lions. In 10 games with the Lions and Vikes last year, Abdullah had just one carry. He had 165 totes for 552 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and four touchdowns in 2017 in 14 games. Abdullah will provide depth behind Dalvin Cook and Michael Boone in 2019.

Vikings Claim Ameer Abdullah Off Waivers

The Minnesota Vikings claimed running back Ameer Abdullah off waivers from the Lions on Wednesday, according to a source. Abdullah is basically a forgotten man after he was active for just three games with Detroit this year, but he'll help boost Minnesota's running back depth with rookie Roc Thomas injured. Still, Abdullah will face long odds of even seeing the field with his new team as long as Dalvin Cook doesn't suffer any setbacks coming off the bye week.
