 Beats have suggested that the loss of Minnesota's starting center may hurt the screen game this week. We shall see.

The Bears are 6th against fantasy running backs, Murray is a boom / bust RB2. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Murray was unspectacular against the Packers, gaining 75 total yards on 22 touches. But he saw a ton of work, as usual, which always keeps him as a viable fantasy play. The Bears allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, but you're not going to avoid Murray in light of the uncertainty at running back in Week 17. The Vikings could still technically lose out on a bye, so expect them to play their starters, and for Murray to have a decent fantasy day.McKinnon received just eight touches against the Packers, marking the second time in three games that he has received fewer than 10 touches. The Bears are tough on opposing running backs, allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to the position. But the Vikings are one of the few teams that still has something to play for, as they could lose a bye with a loss and a certain combination of outcomes in other games. That should mean that McKinnon will have his usual involvement. Hopefully, that will be more like his customary 14-16 touches, which would keep him in the RB2 discussion.
