Scouting report

DEN RB Mike Boone - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Mike Boone had six carries and caught his lone target last week against the Ravens, but he finished with just 26 total yards from scrimmage and saw only 23% of the offensive snaps. Boone is behind Latavius Murray on the depth chart, and this isn't an offense fantasy managers should be clamoring for pieces of. Boone should remain on waivers in most leagues, and really only has value if Murray gets hurt.

DEN RB Mike Boone - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Los Angeles Chargers
Mike Boone saw a 49% snap share in the wake of Javonte Williams' injury, a number that actually bested Melvin Gordon by a few snaps. Boone only saw seven carries but he did catch all three targets and record 85 total yards against the Colts in an exceedingly ugly offensive game. Boone looks locked into a firm pass game role and will get some carries behind Gordon as well. The only issue with that is him being stuck on Denver's anemic offense and their brutally bad red zone efficiency. Boone is worthy of rostering as the pass catching back for Russell Wilson, but he's a high-risk start against the Chargers this week.

DEN RB Mike Boone - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Indianapolis Colts
Mike Boone's exact role remains uncertain heading into Week 5, but he is virtually guaranteed to see more work than usual for the remainder of the year with Javonte Williams tearing his ACL. Boone will almost certainly open up behind Melvin Gordon on early downs, but he already was seeing some snaps in passing situations and could make some noise as a receiver right away. Gordon has also struggled with fumbles through four weeks and is close to the point of breakdown for RBs at age 29. If Gordon continues to struggle with fumbles or suffers his own injury, Boone could be vaulted into a much larger role. Boone should be added from waivers in all leagues this week and stashed on benches while we wait to see his role on Thursday night against the Colts. Latavius Murray was also added, so monitor his role as well.

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.

MIN RB Mike Boone - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Chicago Bears

Mike Boone was a huge letdown last week, rushing 11 times for 28 yards while catching just one pass for five yards. He was actually out-performed by Ameer Abdullah. Expect Boone to play some this week as the Vikings will likely rest both Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison with nothing to gain. But Boone will probably split carries with Abdullah, and potentially even C.J. Ham. He's not much more than a desperation flex play in Week 17.

MIN RB Mike Boone - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Green Bay Packers

Mike Boone came out of nowhere to potentially be a championship-winning running back for fantasy owners in Week 16. After injuries to Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison, the fourth-string back ran 13 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns last week. Even though he's behind Ameer Abdullah on the depth chart, Minnesota is clearly relying on him as their primary rusher. He gets a somewhat favorable matchup against the Packers this week and can be viewed as a sign-and-start option in Week 1. He has the potential to put up borderline RB1 numbers, assuming both Cook and Mattison are out.
