The Viking claimed RB Gallman off waivers in another move. Gallman likely at least slides in behind Cook and Nwangwu. Cook was dominant last week coming back from a shoulder injury but has dealt with his share of injuries this year and in his career, so his handcuff any given week is always worth noting.
MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 vs Steelers
Another game filling in for Dalvin Cook, another smash performance for Alexander Mattison, who rushed 22 times for 90 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 34 yards against the Lions. Mattison has now finished as RB7, RB6, and RB5 in three starts this season.
He goes up against a Steelers defense that ranks 29th in Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points per Game allowed to running backs. This game projects as a favorable game script with the Vikings as three-point home favorites. If Dalvin Cook is out for another week, we can confidently fire up Mattison as an RB1.
