Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Scores two touchdowns Sunday versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon ran 16 times for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Bears. He also caught three of four targets for an additional 21 yards and a score in the 38-10 win.

McKinnon managed just under five yards per carry and his running helped salt the game away after the team jumped out to an early lead. He opened the scoring with a 16-yard catch in the first quarter and found the end zone again on a one-yard conversion in the fourth. McKinnon showed flashes this season but was somewhat inefficient with an average of just 3.4 yards per carry and four total touchdowns. The Vikings will get Adrian Peterson back and presumably healthy next season, but McKinnon should again be in line to serve as the team's top backup.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Posts 83 total yards Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon rushed 11 times for 50 yards and caught five of six targets for 35 yards Saturday against the Packers.

With Adrian Peterson (knee/groin) again sidelined, McKinnon operated as the Vikings' lead back Saturday, out-touching backfield complement Matt Asiata 16 to 9. However, there ultimately weren't many carries to go around with the Vikings playing in catch-up mode most of the day. McKinnon should find easier sledding next week against the Bears when the game script will likely be more conducive to an emphasis on running the ball.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: In line to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With teammate Adrian Peterson (knee/groin) ruled out, McKinnon is in line to start at running back Saturday against the Packers.

McKinnon occupying Minnesota's starting role is nothing new, as Peterson has appeared in just three games this season, but the third-year pro has struggled in the spotlight, gaining just 400 yards and managing one rushing touchdown on his 132 carries thus far. Considering Matt Asiata's presence, McKinnon's fantasy stock is further plagued by him splitting snaps in Peterson's absence.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Has 71 total yards in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McKinnon had three carries for 12 yards and nine receptions for 59 yards in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis.

McKinnon played 34 snaps on offense compared to 12 snaps for Matt Asiata and 12 for Adrian Peterson. It's likely that Peterson will get more snaps next week against Green Bay, but McKinnon likely also got a larger workload with the Vikings falling behind early. McKinnon should still get work as the team's third-down and receiving back. However, his role may sharply decline the next two games with Peterson back from a knee injury.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Workload unknown for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon's workload for Sunday's game against the Colts is up in the air due to the expected return of Adrian Peterson (knee), 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Further clouding the situation is the sudden emergence of Matt Asiata's ankle injury, which held him out of practice Friday. Since Peterson turned his focus from game action to rehabbing a torn meniscus in Week 3, McKinnon and Asiata have combined for 20.3 rushes and 5.5 targets per game over the last 11 contests. It remains to be seen if that workload will be split two or three ways, but because McKinnon is the healthiest of the trio, he could very well assume most of the snaps this weekend.
