Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) took full practice reps again Friday. McKinnon took a back seat to Latavius Murray after Dalvin Cook was knocked out of Week 4. We’re expecting a committee, with Murray handling most of the early-down work and McKinnon coming in on third down. McKinnon is capable of more, however. In the 14 career games where he’s seen at least 10 carries, he has averaged 78 total yards and 0.21 touchdowns per game (on 18.0 touches per game).

Scouting Report

Week 6 vs. Green Bay Packers

Latavius Murray started last week, but took a backseat to Jerick McKinnon by the time the game was over. Murray finished with 12 carries, but struggled to find much running room as he finished with 31 yards (2.6 yards-per-carry average). He also wasn't much of a factor in the passing game, catching just 2 passes for 12 yards.

We expect Murray to still have a role in Minnesota's offense, but McKinnon has become the clear back to own for now. Murray should get close to double-digit touches in a favorable matchup, but he's not much more than a low-end RB3 or flex play this week.
