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.
Cook will have an MRI today and it’s unclear whether he’ll play Sunday’s home game against the Falcons, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. Cook did play one more snap after leaving with the injury. Mattison came in and had 20 carries for 112 yards. Mattison is likely to get plenty of work again this week if Cook can’t go so hopefully Cook owners have Mattison tucked away on their bench. Mattison will be a major target on the wire this week. Boone could also see some time if Cook is out.
