Vikings | Jerick McKinnon probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:15:48 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will get the start this week, but there is risk here, especially f the Vikings fall behind early and have to throw the ball a lot. There are probably better options available to you in FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:27:04 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Offensive coordinator has already said McKinnon will keep his starting role even with RB Ben Tate now in town. The risk with McKinnon and all the Minnesota Vikings running backs, and why they're risky plays this week, is that they'll have to pass a lot if they fall behind to the Green Bay Packers.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon still the lead back

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 10:52:53 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) will retain the lead-back role, even after the team claimed RB Ben Tate off waivers from the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, Nov. 19, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner said Tate was brought in for insurance because both McKinnon and RB Matt Asiata (concussion) were dealing with injuries this week. McKinnon said he will be ready for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. However, Asiata's status is in doubt. "We're excited about Jerick and what he's done and I see him as our running back," Turner said. "He's been limited in practice last week and couldn't practice (Wednesday) So you got to protect yourself, obviously with Matt not being able to practice (Wednesday) and in doubt as to whether he'll play or not."

Fantasy Tip: The real loser of the Tate signing has to be Asiata. McKinnon ($5,400) should play against the Packers, but how much will the Vikes run if they fall behind big early? Tate ($4,900) looks to be part of another committee, but he'll have better chance for fantasy success in his new digs. Consider him a flex option at FantasyScore.

Vikings | Ben Tate gives Vikes depth

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 14:07:02 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Ben Tate gives the team much-needed depth at the running back position, with RBs Jerick McKinnon (back) and Matt Asiata (concussion) both missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. McKinnon leads the team with 484 yards and a 4.9 yards per carry average, while Asiata has six rushing touchdowns and a one receiving TD, but he has just 3.3 yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($4,900) could become part of another three-headed monster in Minnesota, but one would think he'd have a better shot at fantasy success this time around, especially with McKinnon ($5,400) and Asiata ($4,100) injured this week. Tate could wind up starting this weekend against the Green Bay Packers, but this backfield could be a crapshoot at FantasyScore, especially if the Packers get out to an early lead.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon misses practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:30:53 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was able to play in Week 11 despite the injury, so he may just be resting the back. McKinnon could be a running back or flex option this week and costs $5,400 on FantasyScore.

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:52:31 -0800

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited Thursday

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 14:30:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: This is a new development, so keep tabs on McKinnon's status heading into the weekend. Assuming McKinnon still plays, Matt Asiata will still be involved in the running game as well, subsequently hampering McKinnon's production.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon shows big-play ability

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:48:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has rushed for at least five yards on 22 of his 60 carries this season, amassing 245 yards on those 22 attempts.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's ability to consistently rip off big runs has allowed him to become the main back for the Vikings. Matt Asiata will probably keep stealing the goal-line carries, but McKinnon is the much better fantasy play at this point. He will take up 10.6% of the cap ($5,300) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he makes a great mid-level play with the Vikings facing an awful Tampa Bay defense.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon hits century mark

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:55:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon carried 19 times for 103 yards in the Week 7 game against the Buffalo Bills, and he had two receptions which resulted in minus-2 yards.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon had 21 total touches to just seven for Matt Asiata, clearly passing him on the depth chart. FantasyScore owners will want to key on McKinnon going forward, especially if he heads into the next game with a mid-level salary.
