He's one of the best handcuffs in fantasy football. There were times in 2019 where he looked like Dalvin Cook on the field, which is a high compliment. We also cannot pretend that Cook has been the picture of perfect health throughout his three years in the NFL. Mattison won't have much value without a Cook injury, but that's okay when you draft him in the later rounds.We all watched Raheem Mostert take off during the 2019 season, right? He had tremendous numbers when on the field in his earlier years, just like Jackson, who's averaged 5.14 yards per carry over his career to this point. Jackson is going to be fighting for playing time with fourth-round rookie Joshua Kelley this year trying to earn that Melvin Gordon role. It seems likely that the Chargers want Kelley in that role, but is Jackson good enough for them to change their course? It's a situation to monitor, as this will be a run-heavy team.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Dalvin Cook potentially holding out this season, Mattison should be on everyone's radar in the mid-rounds. He's in the right offense, and he has the talent, to be a RB1 each week that Cook misses.One of Justin Jackson or Joshua Kelley is going to be the starting RB alongside Austin Ekeler in this Chargers backfield. It's a mystery as to who it will be right now, but one of them is going to be valuable for fantasy football. If you can guess right, you may have a FLEX-type RB option that you got in one of the last rounds of your draft. At their current ADPs, both Jackson and Kelley are worth taking shots on.

Also cracks my top-50 RBs with Dalvin Cook a potential holdout...

I'm not taking the gamble on his bump in ADP since Cook threatened a holdout.Chargers 'still very high on' RB Justin Jackson. he's an intriguing under the radar RB. -Only RB with 30+ touches to have a juke rate over 30% in each of the past 2 seasons. -1 of 5 RBs to have 1k+ ru yds and 20+ rec in every college season. (Joined by Saquon, Dalvin, and Dobbins). @DaltonGuruFF

The Fantasy First Down
Alexander Mattison looked like the handcuff to own for much of 2019, until he went down right before Cook's injury and never got to enjoy the lead role. Mattison once again projects as a high-upside handcuff with weekly playability in blow-out wins for the Vikings.I'm backing Joshua Kelley to take the coveted Chargers big man role this season, but Jackson is still a possibility. Either way, there's rather limited upside for the winner so it's a gamble worth avoiding.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Mattison is the best handcuff in fantasy football - period. He excelled last year whenever he got on the field, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, and clearly looked capable of taking on a featured role if called upon. On a team that ran the ball 48% last year (4th-most in the league), Mattison could be a league-winner if Dalvin Cook were to miss significant time, and should be stashed in every league.Jackson has been effective in limited work in his career, but has always been third in the pecking order in the Chargers backfield. With Melvin Gordon now in Denver, Jackson has a real chance to see consistent touches for the first time in his career. Austin Ekeler doesn't have the frame to stand up to a workhorse role, and he had fumble issues near the goal-line last year. Joshua Kelley is a threat to Jackson, but with a limited offseason, Jackson should get first crack at seeing roughly 10 touches per game and perhaps goal-line work behind Ekeler.
