Jerick McKinnon, RB, SF has to be my favorite this year. I loved the kid with my Vikings but they did not use him to maximum efficiency. Now he is with Kyle Shanahan and his offensive scheme that utilizes feature RBs. The 49ers paid him to be a stud RB. Look for lots of catches out of the backfield and McKinnon to earn his feature back salary this year by rushing/receiving for 1300 combined yards and eight TDs. Jimmy Garoppolo helps McKinnon improve his YPC to the positive side of 4.0.
