Injury Jerick McKinnon suffers injury during workout
Severity unknown
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 1, 3:45 pm

San Francisco
Hearing from multiple sources that #49ers running back Jerick McKinnon was injured during a team workout today. Am working on getting more details. No details from the team yet but source said injury "did not look good." If McKinnon can't play vs. Vikings, Matt Breida, Alfred Morris obviously would have bigger roles. Kyle Shanahan to have cut-down con call at 1:05 p.m. (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Uh-oh. The team recently signed Alfred Morris and if McKinnon were to miss any time, the 49ers would likely go with a Breida / Morris combo to begin the season with Breida having more value in PPR leagues. Stay tuned...


Injury McKinnon: Just a muscle strain
49ers RB seems ok after injury scare
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 12, 5:43 pm

San Francisco
MRI on Jerick McKinnon’s knee was what 49ers hoped: per source, “good and just a muscle strain.” (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It seems as the MRI revealed just a muscle strain for McKinnon and no serious damage. Early McKinnon drafters can breathe a sigh of relief. It wouldn't be surprising to see McKinnon held out of practice this week and possible this week's pre-season game against the Texans.


Injury McKinnon to have MRI on knee
Injured in practice Sunday
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 12, 3:30 pm

San Francisco
Just a handful of plays into the team portion of Sunday's practice, San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon came up grabbing at his right knee. After limping to the side to receive attention from the medical staff and sitting out the rest of practice, McKinnon was slated for an MRI to check for potential structural damage on Sunday afternoon, according to the team. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Matt Breida already on the shelf until the season opener, the 49ers are hoping for good news on McKinnon's MRI. McKinnon signed autographs for fans after the injury and stated that he was fine but we'll await further details. Joe Williams and Raheem Mostert are the current healthy options on the depth chart.


No bell-cow role for Jerick McKinnon?
RB could have smaller role than expected
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 9, 5:50 pm

San Francisco
HC Kyle Shanahan definitely has a role in mind for Jerick McKinnon, but I don't think it's "bell-cow running back." McKinnon fits in a lot of ways, but Matt Breida should have a role in this offense too, and don't be surprised if there are weeks when Breida is the early-down guy and outscores McKinnon even in PPR leagues. (ESPN - Dan Graziano)

FFToday's Take: With all due respect to the owners who already drafted him thinking he was going to be a 250-carry back, he was added for his ability to create mismatches in the passing game just as much as he was to handle 200 carries. Owners need to set their expectations at the same level they have for Christian McCaffrey this year (160-plus carries, 70-plus receptions) and consider anything more from McKinnon gravy. In PPR leagues, that is still a recipe for a very good RB2. Breida is a big-time value in the 12th round right now.


McKinnon poised for 1,500-plus total yards?
Amassed 991 yards in part-time role with Minnesota in 2017
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 23, 6:40 pm

San Francisco
Jerick McKinnon is not big, but he has a unique blend of strength, speed, quickness and catching ability. If he remains healthy, McKinnon should be able to provide in the neighborhood of 1,500 yards from scrimmage as a runner and receiver. He is coming off his best NFL season, as he gained 570 yards rushing and caught 421 yards in passes for the Vikings. It will be Shanahan’s job to find a way to exploit matchups to get McKinnon open out of the backfield. (NBCS Bay Area - Matt Maiocco)

FFToday's Take: Shanahan's track record speaks for itself. Steve Slaton, Ryan Torain, Alfred Morris, Terrance West, Isaiah Crowell, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are among the running backs he has been able to coax significant fantasy production out of in his coaching career. McKinnon is the best athlete of the bunch and a proven weapon in the passing game, making him a great bet to post fantasy RB1 numbers if he proves he can withstand 250 touches.
