Alexander Mattison fills in for Dalvin Cook; posts 28 yards and a score

Alexander Mattison rushed seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's loss to San Francisco. He additionally caught 2-of-3 targets for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact

Midway through the third quarter, Mattison vultured a six-yard touchdown immediately after Dalvin Cook caught a 24-yard pass. But it was later in the quarter where Cook lost a fumble and was subsequently carted off the field with a shoulder injury. It had the looks of a serious injury, as Cook was in tears. Mattison is a clear RB1 for fantasy purposes whenever he receives the starting nod, and it's possible that he finishes the year as the lead tailback depending on how Cook's MRI goes. The Vikings will battle the struggling Lions for Week 13.

Alexander Mattison rumbles for 153 total yards and a score in Week 5 win

Alexander Mattison rushed 25 times for 113 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's victory versus Detroit. He did cough up a costly fumble with under two minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison predictably filled in admirably for Dalvin Cook, as he shredded the Lions' defense on the ground and through the air. The mere blemish on the stat sheet was a costly fumble at the Vikings' 21-yard line with under two minutes left in the game. While the Lions took advantage of the mistake and stole the lead, Kirk Cousins was able to get the Vikings in field goal range in under 30 seconds, where Greg Joseph knocked through a 54-yarder to seal the deal. The impressive Panthers' defense awaits the Vikings for Week 6, though Mattison will remain on the RB1 map if Cook is still sidelined.

Alexander Mattison goes for 171 total yards in Week 3 win over Seattle

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison carried 26 times for 112 yards and caught six passes for another 59 yards during a 30-17 Week 3 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison looked great filling in for an injured Dalvin Cook (ankle) during a huge Week 3 win over the Seahawks. While he failed to score a touchdown, he saw a massive workload in the running game with 26 carries and elevated his output in PPR formats with six receptions for 59 yards. If Cook remains out against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4, Mattison is an RB2 with RB1 upside. However, if Cook returns, Mattison once again becomes a bench stash as one of the league's best handcuffs to roster.

Alexander Mattison totals 28 yards in Week 2 loss against Cardinals

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison carried three times for 11 yards and caught his lone target for 17 yards during Sunday's 34-33 Week 2 loss against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison is seldom used by Vikings' offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak and is mainly relief for Dalvin Cook. He can be rostered as a handcuff, but he should be held on fantasy benches unless increased snaps arise, as Minnesota has found itself passing more to play catch-up against their opponents.

Alexander Mattison totals two touches in Week 1

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed once for a gain of two in Week 1 against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison added one reception for a gain of four. Dalvin Cook continues to be an unquestioned workhorse in Minnesota. For now, Mattison has zero standalone value.
