McKinnon has been playing well lately and getting tons of targets in the passing game. He can be started as a flex play and should be started in all PPR leagues.

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.
