Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon a full go

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:03:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon is expected to be the lead back in the wake of Adrian Peterson's injury. However, a tough matchup against Carolina in Week 3 makes him a flex candidate rather than a RB2.

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon will start

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:09:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon will be the starting running back with RB Adrian Peterson (knee) sidelined. He likely will play at least 60 percent of the snaps. RB Matt Asiata will also receive playing time and likely will handle the goal line carries.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will be able to help out in the running and passing game over the next few months and should be a popular waiver wire addition. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues. Asiata will also have value and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Vikings | Minnesota will split work for backs

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 13:22:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RBs Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata could see a 65/35 split between carries if RB Adrian Peterson (knee) misses any time, according to Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Fantasy Tip: As stated before, McKinnon is the better all-around player and should be picked up this week if Peterson owners are in a tight pinch. Asiata has more value in PPR formats, but he should only be claimed in deeper leagues. If Peterson can't play then McKinnon would slide into low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory for Week 3.

Vikings | Three more Vikings have full practice

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:53:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot, fibula), WR Charles Johnson (quadriceps) and TE Kyle Rudolph (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon needs to continue to warm the bench on fantasy rosters. Rudolph is a sneaky sleeper play as Bradford could look for a safety valve and more high percentage throws in his first start with his new team. Johnson was practically a no show last week and should not be started.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited Wednesday

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 14:56:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot, leg) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon received only two touches in Week 1 and was limited to nine yards. He could receive limited snaps again this week and probably will not be a great option for fantasy owners.

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 09:25:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 1 game.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon questionable for Week 1

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 10:40:16 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot) will be listed as questionable for the Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Sept. 11, but he should be "fine," according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon projects to see plenty of work in the passing game and serve as a change-of-pace back alongside Adrian Peterson. McKinnon is a solid depth option in the majority of leagues and is a potential low-end starter in PPR setups this week. Just note, this game could be low scoring, and McKinnon might not be 100 percent.
