DeWayne McBride

21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
McBride has a narrow path to fantasy viability as a rookie seventh-round pick, and for it to exist at all he likely needs Dalvin Cook on another roster first. Even in that case, Alexander Mattison would step in as the starter and Minnesota has two other recent Day 3 picks (Kene Nwangwu, Ty Chandler) to compete for backup roles. Mattison is more reliable than explosive, which is the angle McBride can exploit. McBride posted rare numbers at UAB, running for 3,523 yards and 36 touchdowns on 484 carries (7.3 YPC) in 31 games. No doubt McBride is dangerous with the football. The question is whether he can earn snaps, considering he's a seventh-round pick who caught only five passes throughout his college career and fumbled 11 times in two years as the lead back.

Inks rookie deal
RBMinnesota Vikings
June 6, 2023
McBride (hamstring) signed a four-year contract with the Vikings on Tuesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.
Alec Lewis of The Athletic notes that the 2022 seventh-round pick, who wasn't able to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine or at UAB's pro day due to a hamstring injury, was spotted at Tuesday practice. Now that he's presumably past the health concern, McBride will look to cement a depth role in a Minnesota backfield that currently includes Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison, Ty Chandler and Kene Nwangwu. That said, Cook's future with the team is unclear and if the Vikings part ways with him, McBride's chances of landing a Week 1 roster spot would improve.
