McKinnon caught two passes off of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. McKinnon tallied 10 total touches with Adrian Peterson feeling under the weather in Week 7, but has just seven touches since. The second-year player split carries with Matt Asiata last season, but has been relegated to just 2.5 carries per game in 2015. Posing as a limited threat in the passing game, McKinnon provides little to a fantasy team so long as Peterson is healthy.
McKinnon had two carries for 18 yards in Sunday's win over Chicago. With Adrian Peterson in a groove (20 carries for 103 yards), McKinnon didn't get much playing time. McKinnon got nine carries the previous week, but that looks like a high water mark unless Peterson gets hurt.
McKinnon had nine carries for 36 yards and one reception for one yard in Sunday's win over Detroit. McKinnon played a season-high 15 snaps on offense as the Vikings made it a point to give Adrian Peterson more rest after dealing with an illness. McKinnon has barely been a factor in the offense and Sunday's game may not indicate a major change.
Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon had six carries for 18 yards in Sunday's win over San Diego. McKinnon got a few extra carries late amid a blowout win. McKinnon is going to have a small role in the offense as long as Adrian Peterson is healthy.
Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon (ankle) had three carries for six yards in Sunday's win over Detroit. McKinnon played just nine snaps on offense as the Vikings didn't make a big effort to get him carries. McKinnon is likely going to have a small role off the bench as long as Adrian Peterson is healthy. McKinnon was bothered by a sore ankle last week in practice, but it didn't look like an issue Sunday.
