I still like McKinnon more than Latavius Murray, but the addition of Dalvin Cook pushes McKinnon way down the rankings.

Jerick McKinnon leads Vikings backfield

Jerick McKinnon carried the ball 16 times Sunday afternoon for 89 yards and a touchdown. He caught 3 of 4 targets for 21 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

McKinnon seemed to finally earn lead back duties the last two weeks of the regular season, churning out 139 yards and a touchdown in Weeks 16 and 17 combined, his best stretch since Weeks 3 through 6. That said, McKinnon's best moments came filling in for Adrian Peterson and he never had more than 90 rushing yards in a game. It's unlikely he'll earn bell-cow status for 2017, and his fantasy value will very much depend on Adrian Peterson's status and Minnesota's draft and free agency moves in 2017.
