Vikings | Jerick McKinnon probable

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 12:17:17 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, and is probable for Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will be good to go in Week 5, and has a nice FantasyScore price of $3,900. Even on a short week, he is worth a look.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:59:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited in practice again Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: While RB Matt Asiata figures to see the majority of the workload out of the backfield, McKinnon could make for a nice investment at $3,900 on FantasyScore against a subpar Green Bay Packers defense.

Vikings | Vikes prefer running-back-by-committee

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:41:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran for 135 yards on 18 carries in the team's Week 4 win over the Atlanta Falcons, but head coach Mike Zimmer is hesitant to call him an every-down back, with RB Matt Asiata also in the mix. Zimmer prefers a committee approach at running back, because it poses more problems for defenses. Asiata is more of a between-the-tackles runner, while McKinnon presents a change of pace with his speed and quickness on the edges. McKinnon also isn't very polished in pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was impressive last weekend, but he'll remain a flex play at FantasyScore with Asiata stealing valuable goal-line touches. Both Asiata ($6,500) and McKinnon ($4,700) could be productive again on a short week against the Green Bay Packers, but McKinnon obviously has a much better chance to return a profit.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:17:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited in practice Monday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's ankle injury doesn't seem serious, and he should be able to play on a short week against the Green Bay Packers. McKinnon showed some explosiveness in going over 100 yards in Week 4. He's a flex play, at best, with Matt Asiata in the picture and stealing goal-line looks, but McKinnon could be another sleeper play at your flex spot this week.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon to see touches

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 20:29:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon is expected to see touches in Week 2 against the New England Patriots with RB Adrian Peterson deactivated, but RB Matt Asiata is likely to start and see a majority of the carries.

Fantasy Tip: At $3700 (7.4 percent of salary cap) in FantasyScore leagues, McKinnon looks to be attractive, but that's the same price for Asiata. If you are looking for a low-cost option with upside, go Asiata over the rookie McKinnon.

Vikings | Plenty of totes for backup RBs

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 21:23:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon led the team with 12 carries and 45 yards in the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders Friday, Aug. 8. He was also targeted twice, although he had zero receptions. RB Dominique Williams had nine totes for 27 yards, while RB Joe Banyard hauled the mail eight times for 22 yards while posting 13 yards on two catches. RB Matt Asiata also had three runs for 13 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: The reserve running backs were getting plenty of work with Adrian Peterson resting, and with Peterson not expected to play in the preseason, they all are likely to get plenty of work. Asiata appears to be slotted as the primary backup with McKinnon as the No. 3 running back and Banyard and Williams battling for the No. 4 job, although that is still subject to change. Only Asiata is worth any fantasy consideration at this point.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon could have edge

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 07:20:16 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon could see the field more than backup RB Matt Asiata because of his ability as a receiver and change-of-pace runner outside or between the tackles.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon's versatility excites team

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 09:58:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon will be asked to do a little bit of everything in his rookie season on offense and special teams. The Vikings love his versatility as a complement to RBs Adrian Peterson and Matt Asiata. McKinnon was a quarterback, running back and kick returner in college. He's also looked like a natural pass catcher in offseason workouts.
