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.
