The Vikings finally threw the ball in Week 6, but against the Eagles you have to because their run defense is so great and their pass defense so lousy. More than likely, the Vikings will return to running the ball as much as any team in football. Mattison isn't Dalvin Cook, but he can be a workhorse and would assume Cook's three-down role if there were to be an injury. That would be him a strong RB2 or low RB1 each week that Mattison was the starter.

Alexander Mattison leads Vikings in rushing

Alexander Mattison rushed 14 times for 63 yards in the Vikings’ 38-20 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie led the Vikings in rushing yards and finished with just two fewer carries than Dalvin Cook. Mattison has proven to be more than capable of handling a starting back’s workload, and he should be considered the top handcuff in fantasy with some low-end flex appeal in his own right alongside Cook.
