Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has averaged at least 5.2 yards per carry and at least 83 rushing yards in every game that he has received at least 15 carries.
Fantasy Tip: While Adrian Peterson will be the workhorse in Minnesota as long as he is healthy, McKinnon has too much upside to go undrafted. Stash him on your bench in 2016 just in case Peterson goes down.

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed seven times for 89 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the New York Giants. He added two catches for eight yards.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon posted his first two NFL rushing scores, and had a nice stat line, but his work mostly came after the game was decided. He will remain the backup with Adrian Peterson getting most, if not all, of the touches in the showdown at Lambeau Field in Week 17 for the NFC North Division title.
Fri, 25 Dec 2015 12:46:01 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he is probable for the game against the New York Giants Friday, Dec. 25.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($2,500, 5.0) dazzled in the passing game last week after Adrian Peterson ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) was sidelined, but Peterson is probable and expected to carry the load against the Giants. McKinnon cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format in Week 16.
Thu, 24 Dec 2015 12:11:18 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) put in a limited practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) could see an increased workload this weekend with Adrian Peterson injured, but the backup running back probably won't see enough of a role to be considered a viable deep sleeper pick on FantasyScore, even in this juicy matchup.
Fri, 18 Sep 2015 13:42:23 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is probable for Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) only had three carries for 20 yards and two catches for eight yards as Minnesota's offense struggled to find consistency in Week 1. McKinnon's utilizations could easily increase if the Vikes find success on offense, but it's not worth testing on FantasyScore this weekend.
Thu, 17 Sep 2015 14:57:56 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Adrian Peterson is healthy, McKinnon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) won't be playing a whole lot. You can leave him off your rosters for the time being.
Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:07:24 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) was held to 28 overall yards in the team's Week 1 game and likely will continue to see limited playing time while Adrian Peterson is healthy. He will be facing the Detroit Lions in Week 2, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
Mon, 14 Sep 2015 23:06:03 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon had three carries for 20 yards in the Week 1 loss against the San Francisco 49ers, and he added two receptions for eight yards.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will obviously take a backseat to Adrian Peterson ($7,700, 14.4% of cap) in 2015, but he is still a valuable contributor. Still, it might take an injury to A.P. to warrant using J-Mac in FantasyScore.
Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:14:33 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has been working on his pass protection in order to better prepare himself for a probable third-down role.
Thu, 09 Jul 2015 12:35:08 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon could see some playing time on third downs with RB Adrian Peterson returning as the starting running back.
Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's fantasy value will decrease with Peterson back with the team. McKinnon probably will have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he could be a receiver out of the backfield. McKinnon could be an option in the late rounds of deeper drafts but probably will not be in fantasy lineups much this season.
