According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Kansas City Chiefs are officially bringing back RB Jerick McKinnon.
Fantasy Impact: McKinnon’s play down the stretch was vital to Kansas City’s success, emerging as one of the league’s premier pass catchers out of the backfield. McKinnon put up career numbers in many statistical categories en route to a finish as a fantasy RB2. With a role seemingly carved out, he can be a valuable fantasy option yet again, particularly in PPR leagues. And even though touchdown regression can be expected, a similar season can never be ruled out in a high-powered offense like Kansas City’s.
