RB - MIN
Week 13 Outlook
Alexander Mattison carried the ball 10 times for 52 yards and added two catches for 11 yards in a 12-10 loss to the Bears in Week 12.
Mattison's 5.2 yards per carry were his second-best mark of the season, although he is still looking for his first rushing touchdown of the year. On the bright side, the veteran running back saw the majority of the backfield work as Ty Chandler only siphoned away four carries. Mattison will be on bye in Week 13 before a Week 14 matchup against the Raiders.
Alexander Mattison rushed for 81 yards on 18 carries in the Vikings’ 21-20 loss to Denver. He caught 1-of-2 targets for negative one yard in the loss.
Mattison averaged 4.5 yards per carry in Sunday’s loss, but had a costly fumble late in the third quarter. The 25-year-old could begin seeing Ty Chandler continue to take touches away from the veteran moving forward. Fantasy managers should view Mattison as an RB heading into a matchup with the Bears.
Vikings RB Alexander Mattison is officially active for a Week 11 matchup with the Broncos.
Mattison exited last week with a concussion but has cleared the league’s protocol and will play Sunday night. Fantasy managers should expect Mattison to see the bulk of the carries with Ty Chandler operating as the backup.
Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison, who spent the week in concussion protocol, is expected to be "good to go" and to play in Week 11 on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos.
Mattison received a surprise "questionable" designation on Friday's injury report, and his availability comes as an even further surprise. Mattison will be just the second player this season to progress through concussion protocol and be cleared for the following game within the same week, the other being Brock Purdy. The protocol is focused on ability and milestones and not time, so the speed at which he progressed is not an inherent problem. Whether or not he will be limited in snap count following a limited week's practice is unclear, making him or RB Ty Chandler risky plays in Week 11.
Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Broncos.
Mattison continues to recover from a concussion he suffered in Week 10 against the Saints. Fantasy managers should know by Saturday if Mattison was able to clear the leagues’ concussion protocol. If Mattison is unable to suit up, Ty Chandler would likely serve as the starting running back against Denver.
