2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
McKinnon, the raw rookie from Georgia Southern was one of the 2014 draft selections made based largely on the newest measurable trend in the NFL, Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction, Quickness (SPARQ) score. Apparently McKinnon’s SPARQ score was off the charts, and the Vikings hoped to sprinkle him in as a complement to workhorse Peterson. Unfortunately Peterson was lost after Week 1, and McKinnon was forced into a more prominent role earlier than initially planned. The rookie learned on the job, eventually busting out in a big way in Week 4, when he went off for 18 carries for 135 yards. There must be something to the SPARQ, as McKinnon flashed game breaking ability multiple times over the middle part of the season before an injury ended his year after week 12. At 5’9, 209, I’m not sure if the Vikings view him as the heir to Sir Peterson, or a lightning strike off the bench that won’t have much touchdown scoring potential (zero scores in 12 games last year). If Peterson can stay healthy the Vikings are going to ride him, meaning McKinnon won’t nearly approach the 113 carries he logged last year. Draft him as a Peterson handcuff, or a lottery ticket in leagues with 12+ teams.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Peterson expects to play in Wild Card Round
Missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with back issue
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 7, 8:35 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings RB Adrian Peterson missed a second day of practice on Thursday because of a back injury, but he left no doubt about where expects to be when Sunday’s game against the Seahawks gets underway. Peterson said that the lack of practice has been about rest and not because his back is bothering him enough that there’s a chance he’ll have to remain on the sideline. “I’m good,” Peterson said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I’m feeling good. I was able to rest the body today. I’ll be ready to roll on Sunday.” (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Peterson missed most of the second half in Week 17 versus Green Bay before returning late in the fourth quarter. While he should be expected to play, the wind chill in Minnesota is expected around minus-7 degrees and the overall temperature is expected to be no higher than zero. That means AP could struggle to get loose or stay loose. As a result, Jerick McKinnon makes an interesting contrarian play in DFS, albeit a low upside one against Seattle's stout defense.


Injury Adrian Peterson "ready to go" for Week 16
Vikings RB suffers sprained ankle

FFToday's Take: Peterson sprained his ankle late in the second quarter and missed much of the 2nd half of Sunday's victory over the Bears. Peterson was held to yards on carries while backup Jerick McKinnon racked up 86 yards and a TD on 11 touches (4 receptions). Peterson will likely be limited in practice this week.


Injury Adrian Peterson limited in practice
Teddy Bridgewater practices in full

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a left shoulder injury — that’s his non-throwing arm, of course — but he was listed as a full participant. Running back Adrian Peterson was limited with a hamstring injury. (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It's too early in the week to be concerned about Adrian Peterson's status for Week 11. The veteran running back remains likely to play against the Packers on Sunday but owners will want to check in later in the week for an update. If Peterson's hamstring remains a concern heading into the weekend, Jerick McKinnon would fill the void in the backfield. Teddy Bridgewater didn't miss any reps in practice despite being listed on the injury report. He appears to be playing through a nagging shoulder injury but won't miss any time.
