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.
