Depth Chart
As I suspected, McKinnon was nothing more than an infrequently used caddy to Peterson in 2015. With Peterson back and better than ever, McKinnon was relegated to mop up duty for most of the year. With only 73 total touches on the season, McKinnon didnít have many opportunities to display his elite athleticism. Despite the lack of meaningful involvement, there is reason to pay very close attention to the third year back. First, his explosion is evident by his 5.2 yards per carry average last season, besting his impressive 4.8 average as a rookie. Raw coming out of Georgia Southern, one would figure that with some experience under his belt, his mental game will start to catch up to his physical game. While he has little to no standalone value in fantasy based on his projected usage, I feel he is a MUST add handcuff for Peterson owners. His ability, and offensive fit make him one of the few back-up running backs than could be true difference makers in fantasy football, and well worth an upside stash even for non-Peterson owners.

Vikings fill RB void with Latavius Murray
Adrian Peterson era comes to an end
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Mar 16, 8:27 am

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings early Thursday morning signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray, and by doing so they likely closed the door on the Adrian Peterson era. Murray rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns in his four years in Oakland, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Murray was a solid performer in Oakland but was part of a three-man committee last season capping his fantasy upside. In Minnesota he'll fill Adrian Peterson's big back role while sharing snaps with Jerick McKinnon. Minnesota's offensive line is a weak point in there offense meaning Murray will do well to achieve RB2 status in 2017.
