2016 Outlook
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Vikings have "no idea" if AP will return
On IR following meniscus surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 14, 4:55 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Mike Zimmer on if Adrian Peterson will play at any time this season: "I have no idea." (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It may be about time for owners with deep benches to give up hope on Peterson, who is running out of time to give himself at contributing this season. Minnesota isn't giving him much reason to rush back either, as the Vikings' offensive line is getting outplayed on a weekly basis. Jerick McKinnon, Matt Asiata and Ronnie Hillman will mostly likely finish the season out in a three-headed committee.


Injury Jerick McKinnon returns to practice Thursday
Ankle injury

Minnesota Vikings
Jerick McKinnon (ankle) returned to practice today for the Vikings (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Vikings have been woeful on offense the last two weeks so any help in the running game would be appreciated. The Lions have been decent against fantasy running backs allowing just one rushing touchdown this season.


Injury Jerick McKinnon sits Saturday
Asiata shaping up to be a RB2
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 29, 11:45 am

Minnesota Vikings
No Jerick McKinnon or Andrew Sendejo during start of today's practice. Wouldn't expect either to play. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Matt Asiata is shaping as a RB2 on Monday night against the Bears if McKinnon isn't able to play. The Vikings will release their injury report later today so we should get a better idea of McKinnon's status then.


Injury Jerick McKinnon sits Thursday
Ankle injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 27, 12:15 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Not practicing during the brief portion of practice open to reporters were running back Jerick McKinnon, receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, safety Andrew Sendejo and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. Patterson was on the field, but not in pads. The other players werenít on the field. Sendejo sprained an ankle early in the Eagles game and didnít return. Floyd hasnít played since having knee surgery after the season opener. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: This is Vikings first practice of the week as they play on Monday night against the Bears. McKinnon injured his ankle last week so this situation is worth monitoring. Matt Asiata could be in line for a bigger workload in Week 8.


Injury Vikings place Adrian Peterson on IR
Earliest return would be Week 11
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 23, 3:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings placed Adrian Peterson on injured reserve Friday. Peterson underwent surgery Thursday to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee. Itís still possible Peterson returns this season as each NFL team is allowed to reinstate one player from injured reserve after eight weeks. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: The earliest Peterson could return would be Week 11 although it's likely he won't be back during the regular season. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will form a committee for the Vikes moving forward.


Injury Adrian Peterson to have surgery, out 3-4 months
Torn meniscus
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 21, 11:45 am

Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is planning to have surgery Thursday morning to repair his torn meniscus, he told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Peterson, who was injured Sunday, told ESPN that he has a "bucket handle tear" of the meniscus, which typically has a recovery time of three to four months. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Opting for surgery will cost Peterson most of the season. Peterson owners can hang on to the veteran running back for a couple days as more news surfaces but at best he could return late in the season. Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon will form a committee in Peterson's absence, with both being FLEX considerations from week to week.


Injury Adrian Peterson has torn meniscus
HC Mike Zimmer declines to rule RB out for Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 19, 5:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Mike Zimmer did not dismiss idea that Adrian Peterson could play this week with torn meniscus. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: AP has shown himself to have amazing recuperative powers, but the notion anytime soon after not being able to put any weight on his right leg Sunday night borders on ridiculous. The odds are strong Peterson misses at least a month if the tear is substantial enough. Jerick McKinnon would be expected to handle the bulk of the workload in such a scenario, while Matt Asiata steals an occasional series and assume goal-line duties.
