Mike Boone scores rare TD in Week 16 loss

Mike Boone rushed once for four yards and a TD in the Vikings' 52-33 loss to the Saints on Christmas.

Fantasy Impact

It was an unusual score for the backup RB, who sniped a goal-line touchdown from Dalvin Cook. There's nothing to see here, as Boone is seldom used out of the backfield. He can remain on the waiver wire.

Mike Boone limited in Sunday's blowout loss

Vikings' RB Mike Boone was held to just one rushing attempt for negative one yard and hauled in his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 40-23 blowout loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Boone was the back-up to RB Alexander Mattison, who replaced injured Vikings' star RB Dalvin Cook (groin) as the starter on Sunday. Minnesota quickly fell behind in the first half as QB Kirk Cousins threw three interceptions, which resulted in the running game being game-scripted out to erase the huge deficit. With the Vikings heading into their Week 7 Bye, Boone can be dropped to waivers as Cook is expected to return in Week 8.

Mike Boone (concussion) leaves game early against the Colts

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone suffers a concussion in Sunday's game against the Colts and was forced to leave in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Boone suffered the concussion on his fifth special teams play of the game and did not return. He is listed as RB4 on the Vikings depth chart and shouldn't be rostered in any leagues at this time.

Mike Boone shreds Bears with 160 total yards

Mike Boone carried 17 times for 148 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 12 yards in the Vikings’ 21-19 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Boone ripped Chicago for 160 total yards, delivering a performance fantasy owners had been waiting on since he took over the reins of the backfield. In the regular-season finale, both Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison were rested in anticipation of Wild Card Weekend.

Mike Boone a complete bust for fantasy championship week

Mike Boone carried 11 times for 28 yards, adding a five-yard reception in the Vikings’ 23-10 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Boone, one of the hottest waiver wire adds of Week 16, completely obliterated fantasy owner's championship aspirations with his huge letdown performance. After scoring twice on a healthy rushing line in Week 15, he was held completely in check against Green Bay. Assuming one of Dalvin Cook or Alexander Mattison is ready to go in Week 17, Boone will be relegated back to the bench, ending his 15 minutes of fantasy fame.
