Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon scored via run and pass in Sunday's win over the Texans. McKinnon carried 10 times for 52 yards, finding the end zone from 26 yards out. He also caught all 8 of his targets for 70 yards, including a 20-yard 2nd-quarter score. That makes 5 TDs in 3 games for McKinnon, who should probably just stay in fantasy football lineups. His 18 opportunities against Houston marked a season high for the 2nd straight week. RB Isiah Pacheco led the team with 15 carries for 86 yards against Houston, adding an 11-yard catch on his lone target.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday ahead of the AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. The veteran figures to split backfield duties with rookie RB Isiah Pacheco should he ultimately be healthy enough to suit up this weekend. We'll follow McKinnon's status on the practice report this week in case something takes a downward turn.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon caught another 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Broncos, the 2nd time this season he has tallied 2 receiving scores against Denver. McKinnon's TDs came from 6 and 3 yards out this time. It was his 5th straight game with at least 1 score and 3rd 2-TD game among the past 4. McKinnon and the Chiefs face a weak Raiders defense in Week 18.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon scored from 9 yards out among his 3 catches for 31 yards in Saturday's win over the Seahawks. That marks his 4th straight game with at least 1 TD and his 6th TD over that span. McKinnon totaled just 8 touches for 38 yards in this one, so he's still not a safe bet if he doesn't get TD luck. Week 17 holds a rematch with the Broncos, who allowed McKinnon 7-112-2 receiving line in their Week 14 meeting. Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco added 58 yards on 14 carries, plus a catch for 32 yards.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon caught a season-high 7 passes in Sunday's win over the Broncos. He turned those into 112 yards and 2 TDs. The big strike came when QB Patrick Mahomes made an underhanded flip to evade defenders that turned into a 56-yard score. McKinnon added a 10-yard score later in the 2nd quarter. He sat tied with JuJu Smith-Schuster for 2nd on the team in targets at halftime and finished tied with Travis Kelce for 2nd (with 9). It marked the 4th time in the past 6 games that McKinnon drew 6+ looks and the 2nd straight game he reached 10 opportunities. (McKinnon added 6 carries for 22 yards against Denver.) Isiah Pacheco added 70 yards on 13 carries and 3-23 receiving on 3 targets vs. the Broncos. The Chiefs get a high-ceiling rushing matchup with the Texans in Week 15.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but was a full-go on Friday. So McKinnon will evidently be ready for his usual pass-catching role vs. the Bengals this weekend.
