Vikings running back Alexander Mattison is practicing Wednesday after going through concussion protocol last week.
Dalvin Cook is set to miss Week 17 following the death of his father, so this news sets Mattison up to start in a great matchup against the Lions' terrible defense. Mike Boone and Ameer Abudallah will probably mix in in some capacity, but Mattison will be an interesting DFS play given his projected workload and the soft matchup.
Mattison had been sidelined for three weeks after undergoing an appendectomy and returned in Week 15 only to suffer a concussion after only six snaps. He will miss Week 16, leaving Ameer Abdullah and Mike Boone to pick up the scraps behind workhorse Dalvin Cook. Cook is our fifth ranked running back for finals week.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (illness, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15.
