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.Murray scored a touchdown against the Saints, but did little else with 21 touches. He's clearly the go-to guy near the end zone, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Eagles. Philadelphia allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs and, to the extent they have a weakness there, it's too pass-catching backs. That could mean more involvement for Jerick McKinnon, though neither back makes a particularly safe option.

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.The Eagles are 2nd against fantasy running backs, Murray does not have a great matchup this week.
