This article focuses on the Minnesota Vikings rugby football team in the U.S. The team will have to make decisions at running back in the offseason. Michael Bennett takes too many tackles for loss because he lacks the vision to detect penetration. Mewelde Moore is injury-prone and seems best suited as a third-down back, and rookie Clatrick Fason runs too high and tries to bounce too many runs outside. Troy Williamson has had a typical rookie season for a receiver. He has not been physical enough at the line and hasn't always adjusted his routes based on coverage or the flight of the ball.
