Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Contributes 55 yards of offense, TD in Week 13 loss

McKinnon rushed for 41 yards on nine carries and secured five of six targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 17-15 loss to the Cowboys.

McKinnon actually found some decent running room on his limited opportunities, with his 4.6 YPC figure checking in as his highest since Week 4. His five catches were also a season high, and his nifty five-yard touchdown grab with 25 seconds remaining brought the Vikings within two. Despite a relatively productive fantasy night, McKinnon's rushing attempts have now been in in the single digits in four of the last five contests, and with news that Adrian Peterson continues to ramp up his activity in the hopes of a late-season return, the former's days as a viable fantasy asset could be numbered.
