Ajayi lost an early fumble against the Falcons, but recovered to gain 98 total yards on 18 touches. He's clearly the main back in Philadelphia, but it's unclear how much that will help him this weekend against the Vikings. Minnesota allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, and will obviously try to limit Ajayi and force Nick Foles to beat them. Still, given the guaranteed 15 touches or so, Ajayi isn't the worst fantasy option at this stage of the game.McKinnon found the end zone against the Saints, but saw just 11 touches, as the Vikings leaned on Latavius Murray to try to protect their lead in the second half. The same may be true this weekend against the Eagles, though Philadelphia is outstanding against opposing backs, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position. They did allow five receiving touchdowns to running backs, however, which was tied for the most in the league. That could portend good things for McKinnon this weekend, though he's still a risky fantasy play.

The Vikings allow the fewest points to fantasy running backs and they will be keying on the run game. The Eagles running backs are not stellar options this week.The strength of the Eagles against running backs is stopping the run, they gave up 91 receptions for 653 yards and 5 touchdowns to running backs. McKinnon has the best chance to have a fantasy impact this week among Minnesota backs.
