McKinnon landed in possibly the best spot for his ability and fantasy value when he was signed by San Francisco. In Kyle Shanahan's offense, I expect McKinnon to share work, but also be in position to have extremely efficient numbers. As long as the 49ers don't go after someone else, I love his upside in their offense as the lead back.Sproles is good at what he does and that is catch passes. He will likely be overlooked by many due to Ajayi and Clement, but Sproles' consistency may be too good to keep him off the field.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Jerick has flashed RB1 talent in limited opportunities, and this year, he should get a chance to prove just how great he can be. San Francisco gave him big money and is expected to use him extensivley. If you think he is too small, just look at what Devonta Freeman did under the same offensive coordinator. Sproles may be old, but he has been an RB3 or better in 5 of the past 6 years he was healthy including two years ago. The Eagles are saying he will start, and while his workload will clearly be limited, it should be enough to warrant flex starts once the bye weeks and injuries roll in.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
No matter how you feel about McKinnon's talent, the 49ers have told you everything you need to know when they paid him $30 million over four years. You should know that the 49ers could get out of the contract after one year with just a $1.5 million cap hit in 2019, but that's not why you sign someone like him. They also passed on a lot of running backs in the draft, showing confidence in the guys on the roster. He's never been great on first- and second-down, but unless you believe Matt Breida or Joe Williams is going to walk into 15 carries per game, you need to rank McKinnon aggressively. He figures to be the Devonta Freeman of Kyle Shanahan's offense, which we know is extremely valuable. He's going to be 35 years old this season, so there's plenty of reason to worry about his production, but whenever he's been on the field, he's done a fine job. In the first year of Doug Pederson's offense, he totaled 146 touches for 865 yards and four touchdowns. Many are chasing Jay Ajayi, but he was playing less than 30 snaps per game down the stretch in 2017. Prior to getting hurt, Sproles played 34 and 50 snaps in the first two weeks of 2018. By bringing him back, he'll be part of the gameplan, but he may take on a lesser role with Corey Clement emerging. Sproles remains the only running back to have played more than 43 snaps under Pederson, and he did it four times in 17 games.

I feel like I have to rank him high just because of the number of projected touches he could see with no competition in that backfield. I don't see any way McKinnon is going to be able to hold up with 250-300 touches 
Jody Smith

There's inherent risk with taking McKinnon, but he's in a tremendous offense.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
McKinnon signed a massive contract with San Francisco this off-season and he will look to be the lead back there. He has RB2 value with upside playing in an exciting offense that is on the rise.
