Alexander Mattison logs eight touches in Week 3 loss

Alexander Mattison carried eight times for 27 yards in the Vikings’ 31-30 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

As usual, Mattison handled a handful of carries, playing second-fiddle to Dalvin Cook. Mattison has some big-play ability, though he’s just a top-tier handcuff with no standalone value as long as Cook is healthy.

Alexander Mattison totals 16 yards in Week 2 loss

Alexander Mattison carried three times for 13 yards and caught one of two targets for three yards in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison sprinkled in for four touches and made the most of his chances on a day the Minnesota offense tanked. He’s an elite handcuff, but his standalone value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

Alexander Mattison totals 80 yards in loss to Packers

Alexander Mattison rushed six times for 50 yards and caught all four of his targets for 30 yards in the Vikings’ 43-34 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Mattison was the more explosive back in Sunday’s loss, though it was Dalvin Cook who scored the team’s two rushing touchdowns. Mattison would have flex appeal if this kind of production was consistent, though Dalvin Cook’s hold on the backfield makes Mattison a volatile starter and an elite handcuff.

Alexander Mattison 'taking the bulk of first-team duties' right now

Arif Hasan of The Athletic writes that Alexander Mattison is "taking the bulk of first-team duties" with Dalvin Cook watching.

Fantasy Impact

Hasan also added that Mattison "may have added speed this offseason." The 22-year-old sophomore is arguably the most valuable handcuff in fantasy football. Cook is in the middle of contract negotiations with the Vikings, which is why Mattison is getting run with the starters.

Alexander Mattison logs one touch in blowout loss

Alexander Mattison rushed once for three yards in the Vikings’ 27-10 loss to the 49ers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The run game had nowhere to go Saturday, and Mattison saw just one touch in the blowout loss, with Dalvin Cook not faring much better. The explosive rookie will look to keep positive momentum on his side heading into 2020, though as long as Dalvin Cook is healthy, Mattison is just a high-tier handcuff with little standalone value outside of deep leagues.
