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

Jerick McKinnon to see time in the slot?

ESPN writer Matthew Coller reports that the Vikings have been using Jerick McKinnon in a variety of ways this offseason, including him lining up in the slot as a wide receiver.

Fantasy Impact

This should come as no shock, considering McKinnon is now apparently third on the depth chart behind rookie Dalvin Cook, and recently activated off the IR Latavius Murray. Most got off the McKinnon bandwagon last year when he failed to pass Matt Asiata on the depth chart, but those who stuck around saw McKinnon add value in PPR formats while catching 31 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns over the final six games of the season. In fact, his increase in receiving duties coincided with Norv Turner leaving the team and Pat Shurmer taking over the play calling of the offense. Perhaps McKinnon has a place and role on the Vikings after all, though it wasn't what most would've expected.
