McKinnon a PPR value

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon ranked fifth among RBs in PPR points (and ninth in non-PPR points) over the final 10 games of last season. He averaged 5.4 targets, 4.3 catches, 39.6 receiving yards, and 0.8 receiving TDs per game during that span -- all top-2 marks among RBs. McKinnon also ranked eighth among 43 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and 10th in yards per route run. He's in for some TD regression after scoring on nine of 56 receptions last year. But, with the Chiefs returning the same backfield, McKinnon should again play a big role in the passing game in 2023. He looks like a nice value at his recent RB44 PPR ADP. McKinnon sits a handful of spots higher in our 2023 PPR RB Rankings.
