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

8:12pm EST 12/27/21

Cook has a chance to play Week 17

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said Monday that he's "hopeful" to get RB Dalvin Cook back for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers. Cook is eligible to be activated from the COVID list on Saturday, so there won't be any surefire news on his Week 17 status until then. If Cook manages to play vs. Green Bay, he'd do so without a single practice rep this week. But we'd still expect to see him in a high-volume role.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has been placed on the COVID list. That very likely knocks him out of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and means another start for RB Alexander Mattison, who just came off the COVID list on Wednesday. As we've seen both this season and last, Mattison is a high-end RB1 whenever Cook is out.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison has been activated from the COVID list. He'll be back to give RB Dalvin Cook a few breathers in Sunday's game vs. the Rams.

The Vikings have placed RB Alexander Mattison on the COVID list. They also claimed RB Wayne Gallman off waivers from the Falcons. These moves shouldn't really matter for fantasy football purposes, with Dalvin Cook back. But we'll keep our fingers crossed that Mattison's COVID situation doesn't affect Cook as well.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is officially active for tonight's game vs. the Steelers. It's a much quicker return than expected after he dislocated and torn the labrum in his left shoulder 11 days ago. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Cook is expected to play with a harness on the injured shoulder tonight, which figures to impact his pass-catching ability. And he's still at risk of re-injury. But Schefter also said that Cook is expected to get his "regular workload." That makes him tough to bench in fantasy -- although he certainly comes with elevated risk.

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.
