Scouting report

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Detroit Lions

Alexander Mattison actually led Minnesota in rushing last week, carrying the ball 14 times for 63 yards. He's now had 50+ yards three times this season, and even had a game of 49 yards. He's been more involved than most expected, but he's still not an entirely reliable option as Dalvin Cook's backup. He does get a great matchup this week against Detroit, but it's hard to start someone who can get 14 touches one week and three the next.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Alexander Mattison ran seven times for 52 yards last week, which is decent production for a backup. But it's hard to trust Mattison in any game because his usage is so unpredictable. He'll get some playing time, but he's not worth anything in fantasy unless something happens to Cook.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at New York Giants

Alexander Mattison had just three touches for 13 yards in Week 4. His fantasy value is directly tied to the game flow of Minnesota. This week could be a week where he gets more playing time if Minnesota is able to build a lead on the Giants. But Mattison is still a risky play and isn't really worth much unless something happens to Cook.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Chicago Bears

Alexander Mattison saw a season-high in snap counts last week (30%) as he ran the ball 12 times for 58 yards and a touchdown. He's been involved each week, but his usage has so far mostly relied on whether the Vikings have been winning big. With an expected close game this week in a tough matchup against the Bears, we don't see much room for success with Mattison in Week 4.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Oakland Raiders

Alexander Mattison is somewhat involved in Minnesota's offense. He had a larger role in Week 1 due to the blowout, but played just eight snaps in Week 2 (12% of the offensive plays) while getting only four touches. He's not worth fantasy consideration at the moment.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Green Bay Packers

Alexander Mattison had nine carries for 49 yards in his Week 1 debut. But five of those runs came on Minnesota's final two drives of the game with the score being a blowout. Mattison will be valuable if Cook ever gets injured, but for now he's not worth much in fantasy.

MIN RB Alexander Mattison - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Minnesota spent a third-round draft pick on Alexander Mattison and he's earned the backup role behind Dalvin Cook. Mattison looked good in the preseason, rushing 25 times for 89 yards in three games. He also caught a few passes, one of which went for a touchdown. Mattison should be involved in the offense, and he gets a favorable matchup in Atlanta. But since Cook can run and catch the ball, whatever Mattison gets will just be scraps. Expect somewhere between 30-40 scrimmage yards for Mattison, which makes him not much more than an RB4.
