It's been a while since we've seen McKinnon on a football field. He's been with the 49ers for two years but hasn't played a down of regular season football. Now that they've traded away Matt Breida, there's a role to be had, but we don't know if he's capable at this stage of his career. There's been some whispers that he may not make the team, though that may be a surprise considering they've held onto him this long. Between Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and McKinnon, it's going to be tough to find consistent volume and production in this backfield.

Jerick McKinnon (knee) looking sharp at training camp

RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) has looked sharp through the first days at training camp.

Fantasy Impact

McKinnon has missed the last two seasons due to knee injuries. His comeback is drawing rave reviews and has looked sharp during camp. “Even just throwing routes on air this offseason, he runs them differently than most running backs and he has a feel that’s like a receiver, but he feels space like a quarterback,” said 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo. “It’s very unique and I’m excited to get him back, man. It’s been a while. We came in together, me and him when we both signed here, and it’s exciting to have him back.” McKinnon is competing with Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman for carries in the 49ers backfield, but his clearest path for playing time will be on passing downs. If he can stay healthy and continue to look sharp at camp, McKinnon is worth a late-round flyer in deep-league formats.
