Perhaps it will take some time for fantasy managers to view the running backs in Sunday's Ravens-Vikings matchup as truly reliable options, but we at ESPN Fantasy are all-in on rejuvenated Minnesota starter Jerick McKinnon this week. We also figure to be for Baltimore starter Javorius Allen in better matchups.

But wait, don't the Ravens and Vikings both do a great job defending the run? Well, it's Week 7 and we have some evidence showing that isn't quite the case, thus the rankings discrepancy.
