    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran eight times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14, and he added three grabs for six yards.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon was outgained by Murray for 67 total yards to 40, while Murray had 21 total touches to 11 for McKinnon. Look for a similar touch distribution in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend. McKinnon is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy play in DFS for that one.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 1:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon should continue to be involved in the running and passing game this week against the Chicago Bears. He can be a flex option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 2:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has been involved in the running and passing game this season and has received at least 10 touches in a majority of the games. He should be a fine flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 2:21pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has been a PPR force this year, but his production is inconsistent. He's safer as a flex play in Week 17 as the Vikings attempt to clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 9:00pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed seven times for 42 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in a 16-0 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: With Minnesota in control of the game for most of the night, McKinnon didn't have a chance to make much of an impact in the passing game. He can still be considered a solid PPR flex option in the finale.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 2:39pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon is coming off one of his best games of the season where he posted 114 receiving yards. He will continue to be involved in the running and passing game and can be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 2:16pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon's fantasy ceiling is stinted with Latavius Murray, but he does have more value in PPR formats. In a plus matchup versus the Green Bay Packers, McKinnon is, at worst, a PPR flex play.

  • Posted: 12/19/2017 2:23pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) put in a full practice Tuesday, Dec. 19. The Vikings did not practice; McKinnon's status is simply an estimation.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon amassed a surprising 114 receiving yards last week on seven catches. He almost certainly won't repeat that kind of performance, but he does deserve consideration as at least a PPR flex.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 1:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon caught seven passes for 114 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. He also rushed for 24 yards on nine carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon had one of his best games of the season against the Bengals and will continue to have a role in the running and passing game. He can be a solid flex option next week against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 4:55pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon is sharing playing time with Latavius Murray but has been receiving limited touches recently. He could be a flex option in deeper point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 4:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has been sharing playing time with Latavius Murray for the last several weeks but is still involved in the running and passing game. He should have a similar role against the Cincinnati Bengals and can be a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 2:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has taken a backseat to Latavius Murray in recent weeks, totaling 14 touches in Week 13 and just nine total touches in Week 14 while managing 107 total yards from scrimmage over the past two outings. He was able to find the end zone once, which is nice, but he is more of a RB4 in deeper fantasy leagues at the moment.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 2:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed seven times for 46 yards in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers and he added a pair of receptions for nine yards.

    Huddle Up: The total yards from scrimmage wasn't very good, but that's to be expected against a sturdy rush defense like Carolina. He should find more running room at home against Cincinnati in Week 15, but he is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon caught five passes for 28 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. He also rushed for 24 yards on nine carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has been involved in the running and passing game for most of the games this season and should have a similar workload next week against the Carolina Panthers. He can be a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 4:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 23 yards on 13 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 31 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon will continue to share work with Latavius Murray moving forward but should be more involved in the passing game. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues against favorable matchups.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 3:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams and he added five receptions for 12 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon basically saw an even split in carries with Latavius Murray, but the latter was far more efficient with 6.3 yards per rush and two touchdowns to McKinnon's 3.4 yards per tote and no scores. McKinnon remains more of a RB3 or flex option, especially in PPR formats, heading into Week 12 at Detroit on Thanksgiving.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 7:50am ET

    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.
