Fantasy Football Outlook 2018 - 49ers

Jerick McKinnon believers please stand up.

The time has finally come -- or has it?

In the whirlwind of 2018 NFL free agency, McKinnon signed a four-year, $30-million contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Following Dalvin Cook's season ending ACL tear, McKinnon earned a larger workload for the Minnesota Vikings last season. He turned this opportunity to a career-best 570 rushing yards, 421 receiving yards, 5 touchdowns, and 51 receptions. However, despite his best season to date, a split backfield withLatavius Murray limited McKinnon's upside in 2017 as Murray finished with 842 rushing yards and 8 rushing touchdowns while serving as the early-down (and goal-line) back.

But workload may not be an issue for McKinnon this upcoming season. WithCarlos Hyde leaving for the Cleveland Browns, McKinnon looks to be the early favorite to lead the 49ers' backfield in 2018.
