Jerick McKinnon signs with the Chiefs

Free agent RB Jerick McKinnon and the Chiefs have reached agreement on a contract.

Fantasy Impact

The details of McKinnon’s contract with the Chiefs are unknown at this time, but it's most likely a one-year deal. He missed back-to-back seasons with knee issues before suiting up for the 49ers in 2020. The 29-year-old RB rushed for 319 yards on 81 attempts and five touchdowns while hauling in 33 catches on 46 targets for 253 receiving yards and one touchdown across 16 games. McKinnon will compete for a roster spot and the RB2 role behind starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire in 2021.

Jerick McKinnon handles four touches in Week 16

Jerick McKinnon rushed one time for four yards and hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 28 yards during the 49ers 20-12 victory over the Cardinals in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

While Jeff Wilson Jr. (204 yards, TD) was the overwhelming leader of the backfield, McKinnon still appeared to operate ahead of Tevin Coleman. McKinnon's role appears to be a bit game script dependent, however, as he will most likely be utilized when the team is trailing and playing from behind. With that being said, this is no longer a committee approach like it was to begin the season. McKinnon has little to no fantasy value at the moment and there are better streaming options out there. He gets the Seahawks in Week 17.

Jerick McKinnon catches two passes in Week 15

Jerick McKinnon hauled in both of his targets for 22 yards during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

McKinnon has rarely played over the past couple of weeks now that the 49ers' backfield has been relatively healthy. He got some action in this one with Raheem Mostert (ankle) exiting early with an injury. With Jeff Wilson Jr. leading the way behind Mostert, McKinnon likely won't see enough volume to remain fantasy relevance.

Jerick McKinnon fails to see a single snap in Week 14

Jerick McKinnon was not on the field for a single snap during the 49ers' 15-23 loss to the WFT in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

With all running backs now healthy in San Francisco, McKinnon has been completely fazed out, along with Tevin Coleman (2 snaps). They both carry no fantasy value and can safely be dropped.

Jerick McKinnon only plays two snaps in MNF loss

Jerick McKinnon did not receive a single touch during the 49ers' 24-34 loss to the Bills' on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

McKinnon is officially the fourth option in this backfield now that all running backs are fully healthy. It appears that it will take an injury for him to find fantasy relevance once again. Fantasy managers should feel confident dropping him from their rosters.
