Vikings | Jerick McKinnon takes part in practice

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:52:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon should be fine for the team's Week 4 game and will share snaps with Matt Asiata again. He recorded only 47 yards of total offense in Week 3 and will be facing a solid New York Giants defense. McKinnon could be a flex option in leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon has full practice

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 14:24:48 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will be the Vikings' primary running back again this week, but the New York Giants have been stingy against the position so far this year, yielding just 74 rushing yards per game so far. McKinnon shouldn't necessarily be benched, but he's no more than a flex option with a bad matchup and Matt Asiata taking some snaps, too.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon easily has most snaps

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 14:34:00 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon played 35 offensive snaps in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question McKinnon is the lead back in Minnesota as Matt Asiata only received 19 offensive snaps, but McKinnon didn't do much in his first start after Adrian Peterson's injury. His next opponent, the New York Giants, has been a stalwart versus running backs, too, yielding just 222 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown to running backs through the first three weeks of the season. McKinnon is still a flex option, but not much more than that for Week 4.

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for two yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will continue to share work with Matt Asiata even though both struggled in Week 3. McKinnon probably will not be more than a flex option most weeks.

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.

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.
