How much can Jerick McKinnon contribute in 2014?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/14) Everyone knows that the Vikings' run game will revolve around Adrian Peterson. But the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes that rookie Jerick McKinnon will compete for playing time in camp this summer, likely as a pass-catching running back. 

McKinnon didn't do a lot of that in college at Georgia Southern but looked great running routes and showing off nice hands during OTAs and minicamp. McKinnon's usage will depend on a number of factors, including how often the team will want to spell Peterson. There's also a chance, per the paper, that McKinnon and Peterson could be on the field at the same time. 

Adrian Peterson impressed with Jerick McKinnon
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/14) Vikings star running Adrian Peterson doesn't expect to lose a lot of playing time to rookie Jerick McKinnon, but he does see some very good things out of him

"He's pretty impressive and there's not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in," Peterson said of the third-round pick out of Georgia Southern according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style."

McKinnon says a lot has been put on his plate by offensive coordinator Norv Turner, plus he'll also do some kickoff returns. Speculation is that he could end up as the team's third-down back this season. 

Vikings sign rookie Jerick McKinnon
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/14) The Vikings on Tuesday signed rookie third-round pick Jerick McKinnon, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

McKinnon, a running back from Georgia Southern taken with the No. 96 overall selection, is expected to be utilized as a third-down back and compete with Matt Asiata to be Adrian Peterson's primary backup. McKinnon was in line to receive a signing bonus of $515,000 and a total deal worth about $2.75 million over four years.

"I think we're going to find some things for him to do," coach Mike Zimmer said during organized team activities last week. "He's short in stature, but he's got big legs and a big rear end. He's got explosiveness, so I think we'll find some things for him to do."

Jerick McKinnon the Vikings' new third-down back?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/14) With the 96th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Vikings selected Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon . He worked as a quarterback and a running back in Georgia Southern's triple-option offense and also played as a defensive back.

"He's elusive, he has great speed in the open field," Spielman said. "He kind of gives us that dynamic third-down type back that will give us a little spark when he comes in."

McKinnon is 5-foot-9 and 209 pounds and ran a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash.
