Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (groin, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 6. With Cook out, Alexander Mattison is a top shelf Sneaky Start. He has averaged 4.7 YPC on his 144 career carries and is capable in the passing game as well. Mike Boone will also get some run.
MIN RB Mike Boone - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Detroit
With Dalvin Cook expected to miss this week’s game, Boone should expect more work as part of an RBBC with Alexander Mattison and Ameer Abdullah. Boone hasn’t done much this season, which is to be expected with Cook handling almost all the backfield touches. However, Boone did score a touchdown in last week’s contest against the Saints, so his productivity will be linked to how often he succeeds in the red zone. Keep Boone tapped as a touchdown-dependent RB3 in this one.
