    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has 60 carries for 261 yards and three rushing touchdowns; with 20 receptions for 163 yards and one touchdown in the last four games.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon is the fifth-highest scoring running back in PPR leagues during the last five weeks. He faces a decent matchup in the Washington Redskins in Week 10, and he's an RB2 option in fantasy.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 9:49am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 50 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8. He also caught six passes for 72 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has received at least 14 carries in each of the last four games and has three rushing touchdowns during that span. He also has at least five catches in three of the last four games. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:57pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 47 yards on 14 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. He also caught three passes for 10 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon saw his stats drop a bit this week against the Ravens but remains involved in the running and passing game. He should have a favorable matchup in Week 8 and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 3:25pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) practiced in full on Friday, Oct. 20, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon is likely to see a healthy amount of work against the Ravens, especially in the pass game, as Case Keenum will be without Stefon Diggs again. McKinnon is a respectable RB2 or flex option in most fantasy leagues, but especially so in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 2:14pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has taken the NFL by storm since he was integrated as the featured running back two weeks ago. In those games, he has averaged 122.5 total yards, 5.5 catches and 1.5 touchdowns. The Baltimore Ravens have been susceptible to the running game this year, too, so start McKinnon as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 1:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was able to take part in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon had a monster game in Week 6 and now he is looking to follow it up with another, picking up the slack of the injured rookie Dalvin Cook. The Ravens rank 30th in the NFL against the run, giving up 141.3 yards per game on the ground, so it could be another banner week for McKinnon.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 4:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers and he added five receptions for 30 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon finally exploded for a big stat line, his first since Dalvin Cook went down with a serious injury. KcKinnon appears to have the potential to be a strong RB2 or flex play down the stretch. The Vikings host the Ravens in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 9:36pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 9, versus the Chicago Bears. He also caught all six of his targets for 51 receiving yards.

    Huddle Up: In the first game without Dalvin Cook, McKinnon immediately took ownership of Minnesota's backfield, as Latavius Murray didn't contribute much at all on his end. Meanwhile, the 25-year-old was great here, pretty much doing it all and leading the Vikings to the big road victory. He should also continue helping fantasy owners as an RB2 if this usage continues.

  • Posted: 10/7/2017 11:18am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 7, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon probably will receive a few more touches this week with Dalvin Cook out for the season and should be involved in the passing game. He could be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 4:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon will have a bigger role in the offense with Dalvin Cook out for the season and should be involved in the passing game. He has not posted great numbers so far this season but could be a flex option for desperate owners in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 8:24am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) left the game Sunday, Oct. 1, due to an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: With Dalvin Cook (knee) likely out, McKinnon could see significant work alongside Latavius Murray. McKinnon is an RB5 flyer to target on waivers if his injury isn't serious.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 3:05pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed twice for zero yards in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions and he had no catches on two targets.

    Huddle Up: It was Latavius Murray, not McKinnon, who saw an increase in snaps once Dalvin Cook exited the game with what looked to be a serious knee injury. He will be a popular free agent target off the waiver wire in Week 5.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 5:06pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (leg) fully participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 3.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon is expected to be behind Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray on the depth chart this season and will see limited playing time. Owners probably can avoid McKinnon in all leagues.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 7:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (leg) did not practice Friday, July 28.

    Huddle Up: Minnesota added Latavius Murray and Dalvin Cook to the backfield, so McKinnon could struggle to find a meaningful role this year. He is merely a late-round flier at this point.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 89 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. He added three receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon rushed for 539 yards with two scores, and he added 43 catches for 255 yards and two touchdowns. He proved he can be a solid PPR fantasy option in deeper leagues, but if Adrian Peterson is back at full speed in 2017 and wearing purple and gold, McKinnon once again takes a back seat.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 6:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushes three times for 12 yards while racking up a team-high nine receptions for 59 yards on his nine targets in the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon saw a dent to his carry totals with Adrian Peterson back after an 11-game absence, but a lopsided score on the board led to more passing and McKinnon is clearly better with his hands out of the backfield than any of the other backs on the roster. He remains useful in deeper PPR formats, but he isn't worth using in standard formats into Week 16 unless Peterson is inactive for some reason.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 10:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for just 31 yards in the Week 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He added six receptions for 38 yards on his six targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon and Matt Asiata split the backfield touches nearly down the middle, and neither was particularly effective. Treat McKinnon as a low-end RB3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 15.
