2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The clear odd-man out of the Vikings backfield, McKinnon is the sole returning starter from the 2016 Minnesota backfield. Oozing athletic ability, McKinnon fell flat last season in his bid to replace AP. Constantly dodging defenders who had broken through the sieve-like line, McKinnon had a hard time flashing the speed and playmaking ability he had shown his first two seasons. His 3.4 yards per carry average was down nearly two yards from 2015, and was a nonexistent part of the passing game before compiling 28 receptions over the final five games of the season. McKinnon now sits squarely behind Cook and Murray for touches in this backfield, and is going to need an injury to one, or both to return any fantasy value. At present he's a late round flier as a handcuff for Cook/Murray owners and nothing more.

News From The Past 90 Days
Zimmer: Dalvin Cook could be "special"
HC sings the praises of rookie RB
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 15, 5:30 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook has yet to run in pads for the Minnesota Vikings, and it will be some time before coaches begin to establish a pecking order for a backfield that hasn't really needed one for the better part of a decade. But Cook's early work has coach Mike Zimmer believing the Vikings might have a unique player on their hands. "I think he's got a chance to be special. ... I just think this guy has got a chance to be pretty good. Now, he's got some things he's got to work on, like all young backs, but I've been very impressed with him this spring," Zimmer said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Latavius Murray's offseason ankle surgery is costing him an opportunity to make an early impression, while Jerick McKinnon doesn't seem to be getting much of a chance to compete for a starting spot. With that said, Zimmer's praise is notable because he usually does not engage in hyperbole. Cook regularly flashed playmaking ability at Florida State and should emerge as the lead back at the very least early this season.


Injury Latavius Murray has walking boot removed
Available at some point during training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jun 1, 11:39 am

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings running back Latavius Murray is keeping his goals modest as he recovers from ankle surgery. Murray had his walking boot removed Tuesday, 10 weeks following March 22 surgery on his right ankle, and was able to walk around freely Wednesday during an organized team activities session. “The goal is just to try to be available during training camp at some point,” Murray said. “Right now, everything is pointing toward that. I’m just going to trust the process and not rush the process.” (Pioneer Press)

FFToday's Take: Murray's recovery from ankle surgery seems to be on track but he's going to be playing catchup when he finally gets on the field. Rookie Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon are also expected to be in the running back mix this season. Right now, the rookie has in the inside track to being the RB to own in the Minnesota backfield.
