Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Mattison got the first 2 starts of his career last season. He let DFS players down big time with a 10-26 rushing line and 1 catch for 4 yards against the Falcons in Week 6. Mattison delivered in the season finale, though, rushing for 95 yards on 21 carries and catching 3 balls for 50 yards and a TD.
  • He also logged 20 carries in a narrow Week 5 loss at Seattle that saw Dalvin Cook leave late in the 1st half. Mattison racked up 112 yards rushing in that game and caught 3 balls for 24 yards.
  • Through 2 years, Mattison has just 10 receptions in games Cook finished. He topped 8 carries just once last season in a full-Cook game and averaged 7.5 carries per game before Week 13, which Cook left early.
  • Mattison improved his Pro Football Focus rushing grade and elusive rating in his 2nd season. His receiving grade dipped, but Football Outsiders rated him well in both receiving DYAR and DVOA.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Mattison is a fine player but strictly a handcuff type. He’s not startable unless Dalvin Cook goes down. You’ll need to decide when you want to burn a draft pick on that type of player.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (concussion) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. He figures to operate as Minnesota’s lead back in a dream matchup vs. Detroit’s 31st-ranked RB defense this weekend.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. His status, of course, has taken on increased importance with RB Dalvin Cook out for Week 17. If Mattison can clear protocol, he should operate as Minnesota's lead back in Sunday's dream matchup vs. Detroit's 31st-ranked RB defense.

The Vikings have downgraded RB Alexander Mattison to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars because of an illness. That elevates Ameer Abdullah to the #2 RB spot for the game -- according to the team's "unofficial" depth chart. That probably doesn't mean a lot of work for Abdullah (or Mike Boone). Perhaps losing Mattison keeps more touches on Dalvin Cook's plate. Ultimately, we wouldn't alter fantasy-lineup plans on this news.

Update: Mattison had an appendicitis and underwent successful surgery, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Mattison might end up missing more than just this week's game.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He didn't practice at all last week and seems unlikely to play against the Packers on Monday night. With RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) also expected to miss that one, Mike Boone will operate as Minnesota's lead back.
