View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Mattison remained a valuable handcuff to Dalvin Cook in 2021.
  • In 4 fill-in starts, Mattison posted 86-351-2, adding 19 catches.
  • He hit 26, 25, 22 and 13 carries in those contests.
  • Mattison was a strong tackle-dodger. He ranked 11th among 42 RBs with 130+ attempts in PFF’s Elusive Rating.
  • Overall, though, he wasn't particularly efficient. He posted just 3.7 YPC. And his PFF rushing grade ranked 40th in the sample noted above.
  • He missed 1 game in 2021 (COVID list).
  • Mattison will learn a new system under 1st-year HC Kevin O’Connell. Look for the RB’s efficiency to rebound in a system that’ll prioritize pre-snap motion and more creative play design.
  • Dalvin Cook returns for another season. He’ll remain a workhorse, but note that there’s still a chance he’s suspended following an allegation of abuse by a former girlfriend last year.
  • Mattison would likely slot in as a high-volume rusher should Cook miss time. Note that Cook’s missed 2+ games in each NFL season.
  • Kene Nwangwu will push Mattison for #2 duties, but we don’t see the former as a serious threat.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Mattison enters a contract year at only 24. He’ll do so as a strict backup, but Dalvin Cook’s injury history suggests more fill-in starts are upcoming.

You’ll have to pay up for a handcuff with his June ADP in Round 10. But if your roster is already set with 3-4 RBs with an immediate role, Mattison makes sense as a potential league-winning stash.

Dalvin Cook, RB MIN

10:05pm EST 11/6/22

Cook limited on ground but catches TD

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook managed just 47 yards on 17 carries (2.8 per rush) in Sunday's win over the Commanders. He saved his fantasy football line with a 12-yard TD among his 2 receptions on 6 targets. Cook dominated backfield work, though, and remains a weekly starter. Week 10 pits him against a Buffalo defense that has gone softer against the run the past 2 games.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, but we never heard much concern about his status. Mattison should be ready for his usual role today. He played a season-high 43% of Minnesota’s offensive snaps last week.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mattison is listed as questionable but should be ready for his usual #2 RB duties behind Dalvin Cook.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins. We haven’t heard any concern about his availability, but we’ll check his status on Sunday morning. Mattison’s absence would be a boost to RB Dalvin Cook.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook assumed his usual rushing lead in Sunday's win over the Bears, racking up 18-94-2 on the ground to make fantasy football managers happy. But Alexander Mattison siphoned receiving opportunities for the 2nd straight week. Mattison drew 4 targets to Cook's 2, compared with the 18-9 carry split in Cook's favor. And Mattison actually ran 2 more routes than Cook this time after merely drawing close to Cook in that category in Week 4. This won't be a big issue as long as Minnesota wins but could cut into Cook's fantasy production when the Vikings trail. We'll watch to see if Minnesota alters the plan here as Cook moves further beyond his shoulder injury -- or if there's just a preference to get Mattison more involved with the passing game.

Dynasty Write-up
Mattison enters a contract year in 2022. If he can get out of Minnesota and find a lead role, we'd be intrigued by his fantasy potential. He brings a 3-down skill set and turns just 24 in June.
