McKinnon took a back seat to Latavius Murray on Sunday against the Rams, but still saw 19 touches on the day. Although he's far more valuable in PPR leagues, considering he has 21 catches over his last five games, he's always a threat to break a long run. The Lions allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and have allowed 60 receptions to the position. That keeps McKinnon as a solid RB2 on Thanksgiving.

Jerick McKinnon kept at bay by Rams

Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 48 yards, and added five catches for 12 yards, as the Vikings beat the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

This was a solid effort for those rolling McKinnon out in PPR leagues, and it remains McKinnon's floor. This also makes it three quiet weeks in the last four for McKinnon. Still, as long as he gets his touches in this offense, he has great Flex value. The Vikings head to Detroit in Week 12, and game-flow there could tilt in McKinnon's favor.
