Ranking All 32 Starting NFL Running Backs From Worst To Best

In NFL by Blake HoffmanLeave a Comment

32. Jerick McKinnon – Minnesota Vikings

Week 13 stats: 9 carries, 41 yards (4.6 yards per carry), 0 rushing touchdowns, 5 catches, 14 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown
2016 stats: 115 carries, 357 yards (3.1 yards per carry), 1 rushing touchdown, 20 catches, 102 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

Taking on the impossible task of trying to fill Adrian Peterson’s void, Jerick McKinnon has been rather underwhelming. The speedster can’t find any running room behind his atrocious offensive line, and lacks the necessary strength to run effectively between the tackles. Once again reminding people he should be nothing more than a third-down back in passing situations, McKinnon’s lack of impact only makes Peterson’s inevitable return more important.
