McKinnon has been fantastic over the last two weeks, averaging 21 touches per game and scoring three touchdowns. He'll now get a tough matchup against a Ravens rush defense that should get Brandon Williams back. The Ravens excel against pass-catching backs, allowing the third-fewest receptions to the position, and that's usually where McKinnon gets a ton of added value. His volume leaves him as an RB2 here, but his production may dwindle a bit this week.

Jerick McKinnon scores both Vikings' touchdowns

Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 69 yards and a touchdown, and added five catches for 30 yards and a touchdown, as the Vikings beat the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

McKinnon was dominant for the second week in a row, as the Vikings continue to figure out the RB situation after Dalvin Cook went down for the season. This game was a near 50/50 split between McKinnon and Latavius Murray for carries, but McKinnon obviously has the better upside for the rest of the season, as he is the much more talented pass-catcher. Next week brings the Ravens in a home game, and the Vikings should be favored. Fire up McKinnon as a rock-solid RB2.
