Jerick McKinnon believers please stand up.
The time has finally come -- or has it?
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.
