Jerick McKinnon Is A Risky Flex Option In Week 8

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon had an extremely disappointing showing in Week 7. He only earned three carries in a game where he was assumed to be the team's primary rusher. Head coach Kyle Shanahan later said that the team had been planning to rest him due to his heavy workload to start the year. This week, the 49ers might need McKinnon more than they have in previous weeks. McKinnon and rookie JaMycal Hasty are the team's only sure thing active running backs for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks. Tevin Coleman (knee) is the wild card in the mix. He's been on Injured Reserve since before Week 3, but has a chance to return this week. McKinnon should see around 10 touches in this game, but clearly there's also a chance that Shanahan continues to rest him, leading to another disappointing fantasy day. He's a low-end flex option who is fine to start if you don't have a better option.

49ers Were Planning To Rest Jerick McKinnon

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon had just three carries for negative one yard in Week 7. It was a surprising development as McKinnon was presumed to be the team's primary ball-carrier in the game. Head coach Kyle Shanahan recently shed some light on the situation, saying that the team had planned to rest McKinnon all along due to his heavy workload through the early going of the season. McKinnon has missed the past two seasons and with the team's injuries to Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee), McKinnon has had to take on a bigger role sooner than the 49ers thought. While this justification might not make fantasy owners who started McKinnon this week feel any better, it should at least provide a bit more clarity. McKinnon may end up being a decent low-end flex play in Week 8 as the team will once again be riddled with running back injuries in the game.

Jerick McKinnon Sees Just Three Carries In Week 7

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon was used sparingly in the team's 33-6 win over the New England Patriots. McKinnon just saw three carries in the game, which resulted in negative one rushing yard. He didn't earn a single target in the passing game. It was a surprising development as the team was expected to feature McKinnon as their primary back with Raheem Mostert (ankle) out. The 49ers instead rode Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) all game long, giving him 17 carries before he left with an ankle injury of his own. Rookie JaMycal Hasty also had nine carries in the game. Wilson appears likely to miss Week 8 with what could be a high ankle sprain, but it's going to be hard to trust McKinnon after this week's showing.
