San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon (knee) underwent ACL surgery on Tuesday and the tear was "pretty clean," according to a source. McKinnon is still out for the year, but this is a great sign that his recovery should go smoothly. He should be ready for the 2019 in plenty of time. McKinnon was hyped up heading into his first season with the Niners and was a popular early-round fantasy selection, so it was even more devastating when he blew out his knee in training camp. McKinnon could wind up being somewhat of a value pick heading into next year.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in his right knee during Saturday's practice. He is done for the season. With this news, look for second-year running back Matt Breida's draft stock to significantly rise. However, with fellow running back Alfred Morris projected to open the season as the team's starter, he should also be picked up, especially while Breida eases his way back after being recently cleared from a shoulder injury.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon went down with what appeared to be a non-contact knee injury in practice on Saturday. He went down awkwardly on the final play of practice making a cut with no one around him. According to reports, the team is "extremely concerned" about the injury and will send him for an MRI. Nothing is for sure yet, but this sure sounds like it could be an ACL tear or something similar. Fantasy owners drafting over the weekend will want to avoid McKinnon and move both Alfred Morris and Matt Breida up on their draft boards.
