Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with teammates

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:23:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working out in California with Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph, RB Jerick McKinnon, WR Charles Johnson and TE Brandon Bostick. McKinnon and Rudolph are rooming together at Rudolph's Newport Beach, Calif., home and are taking a no-nonsense approach to their training. Rudolph organized the group event.

Fantasy Tip: The chemistry-building possibilities are encouraging, but any fantasy advice to be gleaned from this situation is realistically useless without knowing the fate of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. The offense goes as he does.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon healthy

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:14:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is fully recovered from back surgery and has left for Southern California to train. He is preparing as though he will be a starting running back but acknowledged the job belongs to Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, provided Peterson returns to the team. McKinnon noted that he needs to learn how to help keep his body healthy. He is working on improving upper-body strength and his endurance, while also trying to better his pass-protection skills.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon is a third-down back and, despite what he may believe, is not cut out for the rigors of an everydown role in the NFL. Regardless of what happens with Peterson, McKinnon figures to be nothing more than a piece of the puzzle for fantasy purposes.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon on the mend

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 05:24:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is close to completing his post-surgery rehab on his back. There have been no setbacks, and McKinnon says he will be ready to participate without any limitations in the offseason workout program, which can begin April 20. McKinnon plans on improving his overall game, but will place an extra emphasis on getting stronger so he can survive a full season of pounding between the tackles, and also pass protection, an area of his game that was subpar in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's situation is one of the bigger unknowns at the position. His fantasy value will depend largely on what happens to Adrian Peterson. If Peterson is gone, McKinnon could be a low-end RB2. If Peterson returns, McKinnon is no more than a RB4 in traditional leagues.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon to have surgery

Sat, 06 Dec 2014 12:54:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) will have a procedure on his injured back, according to a source. The recovery period is expected to be eight weeks. He should be good to go before offseason workouts begin. McKinnon was placed on Reserve/Injured Saturday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Again, Matt Asiata might be a nice flex option at least this week at a low price of $3,600 on FantasyScore. He, Ben Tate and Joe Banyard will get repetitions out of the backfield with McKinnon done.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon placed on IR

Sat, 06 Dec 2014 12:07:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: This gives added value to RBs Matt Asiata, Ben Tate and Joe Banyard for the remainder of the season, with Asiata likely getting the majority of playing time. Asiata might be worth a look on FantasyScore this week at just $3,600.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon ruled out

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:52:50 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: With McKinnon ruled out, the team will likely rotate between Matt Asiata and Ben Tate, with the team going with the hot hand. Asiata is probably the better play in FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon out again

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:24:38 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4, and his chances of playing in Week 14 against the New York Jets aren't looking great.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon ($5,300) is an extremely risky option for your Week 14 FantasyScore lineups. If he misses another game, Matt Asiata ($3,600) and Ben Tate ($3,000) should pick up the slack. Asiata is the better fantasy option for daily lineups at a cheap price, but the Jets have a stout defensive front that could limit him on the ground.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon sits

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:14:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a good sign for McKinnon's availability this week, but check back later in the week to see if he can get back on the practice field. McKinnon would cost $5,300 in FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon will not play

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 09:09:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) has been declared inactive for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Asiata will be the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers with Ben Tate likely to also receive playing time. Asiata costs $4,100 on FantasyScore and could be a nice flex option for owners.
