Trying to pinpoint who will lead the Vikings in rushing yards this week against the Jets is anyones guess.
With Jerick McKinnon again out with a back injury, the Vikings are planning o use the “hot-hand” approach against the Jets stout run defense.
Allowing just 85.2 yards per game, the Jets defense is third against the run and will make things difficult for the Vikings ground game.
Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and Ben Tate will all get carries on Sunday.
“I would assume we will use all three running backs.” said Vikings coach Mike Zimmer on Friday.
The Vikings best back this season has been McKinnon who hs 113 rushes for 538 yards (4.8 average).
Fantasy Impact: If you are considering any of the Vikings backs then you are in big trouble. There is no way to guess who will start much less get the most carries. Things is a fantasy situation to avoid.
