News: Jerick McKinnon MRI shows only muscle strain

Smitty’s Take: The 49ers dodge a bullet, as did fantasy owners, when MRI results came back on Jerick McKinnon. Results show just a muscle strain. That was a close call for a guy we have set to breakout in 2018. Matt Breida (shoulder) is a must-have handcuff for all McKinnon owners heading into 2018, but we are on board the McKinnon train in 2018, just as long as you can steal him away at the top of the third-round. Yes, I know he goes in the late second-round on occasion, but with this injury scare, coupled with the recent opinion pieces recently written on how McKinnon could be facing a RBBC this year, have him setup to drop a bit ADP-wise here in the rest of August.
