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.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon a lone bright spot

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 11:31:24 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon received his first start of his career in the team's Week 6 loss to the Detroit Lions. He had 11 carries for 40 yards and also a team-high six catches for 42 yards, as he was the lone bright spot of the offense. RB Matt Asiata had only two carries for negative five yards and one catch for 18 yards in the game. It was the first time Asiata didn't have double-digit carries since RB Adrian Peterson has been out.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon has stepped up and made the most of his expanded workload, and it looks like he may be taking the starting job from Asiata. McKinnon is a more of an all-purpose back, too, making him more valuable in PPR formats like FantasyScore. The Vikings face a tough running matchup against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7, though.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon has a solid matchup against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7 and should be a worthwhile flex option on FantasyScore.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon practices in full

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 14:07:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon had only seven carries for 24 yards last week. Against the Detroit Lions' stout defensive front, another quiet day could be in store for him. He's cheap at FantasyScore ($4,700; 9.4% of cap), but you should look for better options.

Vikings | Two Vikings RBs share workload

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:01:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata was on the field for 44 offensive snaps during the team's Week 5 game, while RB Jerick McKinnon played 30 offensive snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata had a more productive game than McKinnon in Week 5, but McKinnon was also involved in the passing game. They probably will continue to share work while Adrian Peterson is out of the lineup. Asiata is probably the one that has more value in fantasy leagues, but McKinnon could also have some value.

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata played 44 offensive snaps Thursday, Oct. 2, or 56 percent of the offense, while RB Jerick McKinnon played 30 snaps, or 38 percent of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata is the lead back right now, but McKinnon has shown some flashes to inch his way into the mix. Both are flex options right now with the slight nod to Asiata.
