Kansas City Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon managed two touchdowns on five touches (28 total yards) in Week 3's hammering of the Chicago Bears. While the 31-year-old's workload, or lack thereof, renders him hard to immediately thrust into fantasy lineups, it's an undeniably favorable matchup in Week 4 against a New York Jets defense that has been picked on for the most targets (27) and third-most catches (20) to RBs this year. Isiah Pacheco easily remains the best bet for carries as a top-24 play in this crowded backfield also including Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but McKinnon shows some signs of PPR RB3 life for Sunday night. Even so, he appears almost entirely touchdown-reliant while handling a scant 13.6% of the backfield's collective carries plus targets.
