According to Adam Schefter, Jerick McKinnon will sign a four-year deal with the 49ers. The team's former starting running back, Carlos Hyde, is headed to Cleveland.
Is McKinnon to the 49ers a match-made in fantasy heaven? McKinnon has been a trendy fantasy sleeper thanks to his athleticism, and now it looks like he will finally get a chance to land the No. 1 RB role on a team.
Despite starting only one game, McKinnon was the No. 17 scoring fantasy back in PPR leagues last season, thanks to a receiving line of 51 catches for 421 yards and two touchdowns. 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be a big beneficiary of this signing.
