FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING LINEUP NEWS: JERRICK McKINNON NAMED STARTER FOR VIKES

The Minnesota Vikings will go with speedster Jerrick McKinnon as the starter Week 3 in place of the injured Adrian Peterson who is likely out for the season due to needing surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his knee.  McKinnon will likely be spelled at time by big back Matt Asiata but he is in line to get the majority of carries in Peterson's place.

Analysis:  We still think Asiata will get the goal-line work and in standards leagues that is all that matters.  In PPR this gets more tricky as McKinnon is a good receiver and has speed to burn.  Asiata also can catch the football but his value gets a hit there.
