Summary

McKinnon has drawn a ton of offseason buzz (currently being drafted solidly in Round 3) for a back with such a shaky resume. There's lots of reason for excitement over McKinnon, who still stands as one of our all-time SPARQ superstars: his 2014 combine work is still credited as the NFL's best SPARQ score in known memory. He's caught 84 passes for 676 yards over the last 2 years, and he now joins a Kyle Shanahan offense that's generated a top-15 fantasy running back in 5 of the last 6 years. Still, McKinnon has struggled to be productive in a lead role. He's averaged just 3.59 yards per carry over the last 2 seasons (309 attempts in all) and consistently managed to lose the bellcow when put there. All told, McKinnon is less of a sure thing - albeit with more ceiling - than ADP-mates Jordan Howard and Derrick Henry. He's a stout RB2, though he downgrades markedly in non-PPR leagues. (May 22)

49ers | Jerick McKinnon settling in nicely (Tue May 22, 08:08 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon caught several passes out of the backfield from Jimmy Garoppolo and looked 'very comfortable,' according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

Our View: McKinnon in a Kyle Shanahan offense could mean great things for fantasy owners. We could see him getting over 1,000 yards on the ground, and it's not outlandish to think he could catch 50-plus catches for the 49ers offense. His current ADP is RB14 (2.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
