Jerick McKinnon's role only growing

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Jerick McKinnon has looked like a better option for the Vikings than Matt Asiata, and it seems like the team is ready to hand the running game over to him full time.

McKinnon has seen his role grow greatly over the last four games, but was still splitting carries with Asiata up until two weeks ago.McKinnon was clearly the top option in Week 7 against the Bills, however, as he received 19 carries to Asiata's six. More importantly, he looked like a back who is worthy of that kind of role, as he paced the team with 103 yards on the ground.

Asiata is not going away, and could end up stealing some goal-line carries from McKinnon, who has yet to score this season. However, if you could only own one back in Minnesota, McKinnon has to be the guy. Especially with a matchup against the ever-vulnerable Buccaneers' defense on the way in Week 8. 

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon performs well Week 7

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon turned in a strong game Week 7 against the Bills. 

McKinnon gained 103 yards on 19 carries. He averaged 5.4 yards per attempt during the contest. McKinnon was targeted four times in the passing game, but didn't do much. He came up with two receptions, but lost 2 yards. McKinnon was again the primary ball-carrier. He had 19 carries against Matt Asiata's six carries. 

McKinnon will take on the Buccaneers Week 8.

Better to avoid Vikings running backs this week

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/14) Though no announcement was ever made (except to refute the claim in the days that followed), Jerick McKinnon appeared to overtake Matt Asiata as the Vikings' top running back Week 6 against Detroit, getting each of the team's first six carries and 17 total touches to Asiata's three.

But since coach Mike Zimmer is saying he prefers a more even distribution between the two, this situation is far from settled, and with the matchup the Vikings have in Week 7, it would need to be for you to gamble on either player.

The Vikings visit the Bills, who rank first against the run. They've allowed 67.5 yards per game and an astonishing 2.8 yards per carry. They also have yet to surrender a touchdown on the ground.

As you might expect, they've allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs. Two unproven options in an uncertain timeshare aren't the best bets to reverse the trend. Better to sit back and watch what develops this week than to try something sneaky.

Mike Zimmer wants backfield touches to even out

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/14) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he'd like to get running back Matt Asiata more touches and running back Jerick McKinnon fewer touches than last week, reports WGR in Buffalo. Asiata got three touches to McKinnon's 17 in the home loss to Detroit.

Minnesota visits the Bills on Sunday.

Vikings' Zimmer not ready to name Jerick McKinnon the starting RB

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/14) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer seemed pleased Monday with rookie running back Jerick McKinnon, who made his first career start Week 6 vs. Detroit. McKinnon totaled 82 yards (40 rushing) in the 17-3 loss.

"Another bright spot I thought was Jerick McKinnon," Zimmer said during his Monday press conference, per the team's official website. "He does some things where he gets in space and he makes a lot of people miss. He has some explosiveness about him offensively and that’s a good thing."

Though, Zimmer did stop short of naming McKinnon the team's starting running back.

"I thought Jerick did a good job this week, so we will just continue to see where it’s at," Zimmer said.
