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 knew big play regression was coming for Cohen in 2019, though it hit him more than anyone thought possible. Did you know that Cohen posted RB1-type numbers in 31.3 percent of his games in 2018? That ranked 12th among running backs. His lack of big plays crushed his hopes in 2019, as he went down to just 6.3 percent. Still, his floor stayed intact, highlighting he's still the same player. There's an in-between 2018 and 2019 outcome that's likely in 2020. He's never going to be a workhorse running back, but he's going to beat his current ADP.
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.Cohen had a down year last season (like most others in the Chicago offense), but it was largely just his lack of big plays. He's a lock for at least 70 catches, which makes him someone you can start as a Flex play in half- and full-PPR leagues. He's not going to cut into David Montgomery's carries very much, but he won't need to greatly outperform his draft position.
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.Cohen struggled last season, along with the rest of the Chicago Bears offense. If Nick Foles is the starting QB, this offense is going to stay on schedule and Cohen should see a dramatic increase in efficiency. There's a very real chance that Cohen bounces back into the RB2 conversation this season.

I'm not taking the gamble on his bump in ADP since Cook threatened a holdout. 
Ben Wasley
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.Tarik Cohen was awful in 2019, averaging 4.4 yards per target as the Bears offence capitulated. For reference, most pass-catching backs average 6 or higher and the worst I could find was Royce Freeman's 5.1 last year. That's how bad Cohen was. Let's be clear though, Cohen is not a bad player. With Nick Foles now distributing the rock it's very possible Cohen rises back to PPR stardom as a weekly RB2 with flex usage in half-ppr. I'll personally have very few shares as Cohen has zero true upside but if you need a safe weekly PPR starter, here's your man.
