DeWayne McBride Released By Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are releasing running back DeWayne McBride as Tuesday's roster cutdown deadline approaches. McBride was selected by the Vikings in the seventh round in the 2023 NFL Draft after a stellar final season at UAB. McBride rushed 233 times for 1,713 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2022. Given his college production, there might be other teams interested in picking him up. There's also a chance he ends up back with the Vikings on the practice squad. For now, it looks like second-year running back Ty Chandler is the direct backup to Alexander Mattison in 2023.

DeWayne McBride Finds End Zone In Preseason Finale

Minnesota Vikings running back DeWayne McBride carried the ball eight times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the team's 18-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals as the preseason ended on Saturday. McBride failed to haul in his lone target in this one, while his longest run went for nine yards. The 2023 seventh-round pick looks to be the fourth option on the depth chart at this point, as Alexander Mattison, Ty Chandler, and Kene Nwangwu are ahead of him for playing time. The 22-year-old isn't on the fantasy radar to start the season, and a lot would need to unfold for him to have any appeal during his rookie campaign. At most, he is a player to stash on dynasty rosters going forward.

DeWayne McBride Scores In Preseason Loss

Minnesota Vikings running back DeWayne McBride carried the ball six times for 18 yards and a touchdown in the team's 24-16 loss to the Titans on Saturday night. The rookie caught his only target for an 11-yard gain, as he was out-touched 11 to seven by Ty Chandler in this one. The 2023 seventh-round pick could find himself buried on the depth chart as Alexander Mattison is the clear starter, while Chandler looks to be the favorite to be the RB2. That leaves McBride as potentially the RB4 as Kene Nwangwu has shown his ability on special teams and high-end speed out of the backfield. Fantasy managers can keep the rookie off the fantasy radar as a lot will need to unfold for McBride to have any fantasy appeal.

DeWayne McBride Quiet During Preseason Opener

Minnesota Vikings running back DeWayne McBride didn't have much success during Thursday's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. He was the second back into the game after Ty Chandler was the primary back in the first half. The seventh-round rookie rushed six times for 15 yards and didn't do anything in the receiving game. Right now, McBride is probably fourth on the depth chart and he did little to change that during this game. There is still time for him to make an impact, but the likelihood of him making an impact in fantasy football is slim.

DeWayne McBride Signs Rookie Contract

Minnesota Vikings running back DeWayne McBride signed his rookie deal on Tuesday after the team selected him in the seventh round of the 2023 draft. McBride's signing means that the Vikings have now signed all six of their rookie picks from the draft. The running back out of UAB could have a role behind Alexander Mattison in 2023 if the Vikings end up moving on from Dalvin Cook, a move that has been rumored for much of the offseason. McBride is a solid stash in dynasty leagues.

DeWayne McBride Visiting With Vikings

UAB running back DeWayne McBride is meeting with the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday. McBride rushed 437 times for 3,084 (7.06 YPC) over his final two seasons in college and could be a solid mid-round running back selection. That said, he only caught five passes in his three-year college career, so it's tough to project a three-down role for the 215-pound runner. The future of former Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook hangs in the balance, but Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler remain on the roster for Minnesota. McBride would be an interesting dynasty fantasy asset if he is selected by the Purple and Gold and Cook is traded or cut before the 2023 season.
