News: 2 days agoMcKinnon compiled a pair of catches for 17 yards on four targets Sunday versus the Titans.
Spin: McKinnon didn't carry the ball once and saw just 20 snaps Sunday despite Clyde Edwards-Helaire being unavailable for the contest. With CEH's return eventually coming, it doesn't seem like McKinnon will possess much fantasy value barring Darrel Williams joining Edwards-Helaire on the sidelines.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: McKinnon signed with the Chiefs and, believe it or not, 2021 will mark the journeyman's eighth season in the league. The 29-year-old spent the past three seasons with the 49ers but missed all of 2018 and 2019 due to injury. He appeared in 16 games last season but was limited to 33% of the snaps. McKinnon struggled to 319 yards on 81 carries (3.9 YPC, 1.5 YAC) and 253 yards on 46 targets (5.5 YPT). McKinnon is unlikely to emerge into a consistent fantasy option, but he needs to be on watch lists because of the uncertain running back situation in Kansas City's high-scoring offense. Unproven Clyde Edwards-Helaire is atop the depth chart, with McKinnon set to compete with Darrel Williams for backup duties.
