I'm looking to pick McKinnon up because of his better long term value - I don't need an immediatebpkug and play. Would y'all drop Rueben Randle and/or Hurns for him?

freak athlete. Asiata is a big slow fullback type.

my guess is they sign a 3rd back, who may be better then either of these guys in the long term.

Beacause Asiata is trash. The only reason he's ahead of McKinnon is because he's a rookie.

Is it worth dropping Jordan Matthews for McKinnon?

re: Peterson inactive for Sunday
talking SPARQ & simScores, im not gonna bore you with the particulars, but just read below


quote:

No other running back has an athletic profile similar (i.e., over 80) to that of Jerick McKinnon. Backs with McKinnon’s speed, lower-body explosiveness and upper-body strength just don’t exist. He’s truly unique.

He’s also a freak. An average NFL skill position player will ring in at around a 110 pSPARQ, a good athlete at 120, and very good at 130. Elite is about 140, and the 150+ range is reserved for Calvin Johnson, Vernon Davis, and a select few others. McKinnon’s 147.5 is one of the top scores among all running backs over the last 16 years.

An option quarterback at Georgia Southern, there’s certainly a fair amount for McKinnon to learn at the NFL level to become a running back. The transition isn’t guaranteed. But out of 1000+ RBs, my database shows that only 56 have recorded a sub-4.4 40-yard-dash at either the combine or their pro day. The top 6 pSPARQs from those 56 are: Willis McGahee (tests taken pre-ACL), Chris Johnson, Edgerrin James, Jamal Lewis, Reggie Bush and Jerick McKinnon. When you’re the kind of freak McKinnon is, you tend to do pretty well in the NFL.

Cool.

I guess I'll roll with Asiata this week and keep an eye on how everything gets split up. Glad I have both now though.

I picked up both Asiata and Mckinnon

Dropped my defense and kicker

Its a 14 team league so Rbs are slim pickings

Just picked up Asiata... Should I drop him for McKinnon? Or drop Cunningham (I really think he might take over for Stacy sooner rather than later though)?

I would stick with Asiata. But it is truly a toss up.

Ugh, hopefully I just straight out win (rotating waiver) and McKinnon doesn't play too well this Sunday.

re: Peterson inactive for Sunday
Asiata is only a must add if you need a starting RB in the next week or 2. His ceiling is so low its laughable. They'll sign another RB or go with McKinnon. No need to pick him up if you're not going to play him. It's not like he's going to explode and become arian foster or something.

I wonder how much trust the coaching staff has in McKinnon to pick up blitzes, etc.
