Jerick McKinnon leads Chiefs in rushing in wildcard win

by Chris Schommer | Chiefs Correspondent | Mon, Jan 17th 7:41am EST

Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon lead the Chiefs backfield Sunday, carrying the ball 12 times for 61 rushing yards while also adding six catches for 81 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown in the Chiefs 42-21 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Impact:

McKinnon was the primary option in the Chiefs backfield all night against the Steelers and used his versatility to make an impact catching the ball out of the backfield for Kansas City. It will be interesting to see how Chiefs head coach Andy Reid handles the backfield situation after McKinnon’s performance Sunday night.
