Vikings | Jerick McKinnon struggles

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 14:21:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 44 yards Sunday, Nov. 20, in a 30-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Right now the Vikings have a running-back issue, the same issue that has plagued them since Adrian Peterson went down. None of Minnesota's backs really command any solid value at this point.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon has off day

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:17:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran six times for 16 yards Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: What is up with Minnesota's running game besides the fact the Vikings miss Adrian Peterson? Washington surrendered the fifth-most rushing yards per game, yet it gave up just 47 yards on Sunday. Right now, all Viking rushers are considered ineffective.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon ready to roll in Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:16:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and expected to play in Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon faces a favorable matchup against the league's 26th-ranked rush defense, as Washington gives up 123.8 yards per game with 12 touchdowns, tied for most in the NFL. McKinnon is a solid low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats and a sneaky DFS play, too.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon takes part in practice

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 12:08:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon should be fine for the team's Week 10 game and likely will share playing time with Matt Asiata. He was only able to rush for eight yards on seven carries in the last game but may receive more touches since he is closer to being 100% healthy. McKinnon could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

Vikings | Full practice for Jerick McKinnon

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 13:12:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: The likely return of McKinnon does not necessarily mean he'll immediately be thrust back into a starting role. Matt Asiata has held his own with McKinnon out and both should split touches as they were before McKinnon's injury. If there are better choices in one's lineup(s), the safer option might be to bench both Minnesota running backs.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon active for Week 9

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:51:16 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is active for Week 9's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the favorable matchup, McKinnon is expected to share carries this afternoon with Matt Asiata, so he should be considered no better than a flex option or RB3 versus the Lions.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon listed as questionable

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 16:07:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon said he expects to play but owners will need to check on the inactive list to make sure he plays. He likely would share playing time with Matt Asiata if he plays and can be a flex option for owners.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon practices again

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 10:39:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and appears set to return from a one-game absence in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: That's the good news. The bad news is he'll return to a different offensive coordinator (Pat Shurmur) and the same ineffective offensive line that hasn't been able to open many holes for any back this season. He'll also likely share carries again with Matt Asiata. Even in what should be a favorable matchup for McKinnon, he should be considered no more than a RB3 this weekend.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 19:10:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: If McKinnon is active he'll face a Detroit Lions rush defense ranking 17th in the NFL allowing 110.6 yards per game with three touchdowns. He is worth a look as a flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams when healthy.
