Ask the Expert Question of the Week: Pick one backup who you believe will become a significant fantasy player due to those injuries, and say why.
There were a number of injuries in Week 2. Pick one backup who you believe will become a significant fantasy player due to those injuries, and say why.
Jerick McKinnon is my choice as the heir apparent to the Vikings RB position from an injured AP. Adrian Peterson is likely out for months if not the entire regular season. There is some chance of Matt Asiata assuming the role of primary RB but the split is more likely 65/35 in favor of McKinnon. McKinnon has the better YPC and is the rising star. Asiata will definitely be the goal line vulture but over time I believe McKinnon will show why he should, dare I say it, replace Peterson in 2017. Worse things could happen to the Vikes than giving McKinnon his lion share of the carries in a run first offense with a rejuvenated Sam Bradford at QB.
