Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Seeking larger role in free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, intends to sign with a team that will give him a bigger offensive role than he had with the Vikings, ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports. "I want to be the guy," McKinnon said. "I don't put in all the work in the offseason to come back and be in this role. I appreciate the role. It worked out well, but I want bigger and better things for myself."

McKinnon added that he's open to re-signing with the Vikings if they can satisfy his desire for a featured role, but that seems unlikely to be something Minnesota can provide after they invested a 2017 second-round pick in Dalvin Cook (knee) while having Latavius Murray under contract through 2019. It may not be all that likely that another team will afford him that chance either considering McKinnon's averaged just 3.58 yards on 309 carries over the past two seasons. The 2014 third-rounder should still have a number of suitors on the free-agent market, but it seems more probable that he enters the 2018 season as a change-of-pace runner rather than as a lead ballcarrier.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Just 44 yards in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon had 12 carries for 44 yards in Sunday's win over Chicago.

McKinnon has been explosive this season but taken a back seat to Lativus Murray in the second half of the season. McKinnon has 283 yards rushing and 218 yards receiving with one touchdown in his last eight games. McKinnon can still produce big plays and will likely be a bigger factor in the passing game if the Vikings need to go to the air in their first playoff game after a bye.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Produces amid limited usage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon carried seven times for 42 yards and caught one of two targets for an additional nine yards during Saturday's 16-0 win over the Packers.

McKinnon averaged six yards per carry, but volume was not in his favor as he received his lowest allotment of touches since Week 4. This may come as a bit of a surprise, considering his team played with a lead throughout the game, but Latavious Murray's 21 totes limited the impact McKinnon had as Minnesota squared the victory away. He could see additional work next week against the Bears if the team is in a position to limit their starters, but it seems unlikely that he'd be too heavily involved if the team already has playoff positioning secured.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Tops 100 receiving yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon rushed nine times for 24 yards and added seven catches for 114 yards on eight targets in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Bengals.

While McKinnon was outplayed by Latavius Murray on the ground, he led his team in both catches and receiving yards. Both members of this running back duo have provided strong fantasy value since Dalvin Cook tore his ACL in Week 4, but it's a bit worrying that McKinnon hasn't topped 50 yards on the ground in his past eight games.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Practices fully Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday.

Since Dalvin Cook suffered a torn ACL in Week 4, McKinnon has averaged 76.9 yards per game from scrimmage and scored five total touchdowns across nine outings. That said, McKinnon hasn't surpassed 60 scrimmage yards in five consecutive contests. After a brief reduction in reps Wednesday, he returned Thursday without limitations, setting himself up to take advantage of the Bengals' 19th-ranked defense Sunday.
