The San Francisco 49ers will sign former Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon to a four-year, $30 million deal, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)
FFToday's Take:The 49ers lost Carlos Hyde to Cleveland meaning McKinnon is penciled in as the lead back - an opportunity he's been chirping about this off-season. McKinnon split time with Latavius Murray in Minnesota amassing 570 rushing yards, 421 receiving yards and 5 total TDs last season. He should see an uptick in usage and fantasy value in 2018.
