2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
After playing the dashing understudy to Dalvin Cook for a majority of his career, Mattison was resigned this off-season to a two-year deal, as Cook was sent packing. Mattison enters 2023 as the Vikings clear lead back, and he should be their workhorse based on previous usage. While filling in for an injured Cook in previous seasons, Mattison has five 20+ carry games. In those games, Mattison averaged 104 rushing yards, and scored three touchdowns. Throw in at least 24 receiving yards in each game, and you see the kind of numbers Mattison is capable of as an unchallenged three-down starter. Possessing a similar build and skillset to Cook, just with much less wear, it says a lot about Minnesota's confidence in the 5th year back that they would cast off Cook despite possessing a "win now" roster. Based on his poor inefficiency as a change of pace back, the heavy volume should benefit Mattison, and your fantasy team. With a 250-touch floor, dual-threat game, and chance for double digit touchdowns, Mattison is a rock solid RB2 in all formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Alexander Mattison expected to play, limited?
Ty Chandler expected to carry the load
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 24, 7:00 am

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) is expected to play today against Detroit, source said, but he’s not 100%. Expect Minnesota to keep riding Ty Chandler. (Tom Pelissero on X)

FFToday's Take: Chandler has taken over this backfield if you believe what head coach Kevin O'Connell said during the week: “We’re kind of building with the mindset that Ty’s gonna be a guy that we’re trying to get the ball to a lot, both in the run and pass. And then, if we can have Alex, that’s gonna be a huge bonus for the depth”.


Injury Alexander Mattison ruled out for Week 15
Ankle injury

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings ruled out RB Alexander Mattison for Saturday’s game at Cincinnati and are listing WR Justin Jefferson as questionable. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: Mattison injured his ankle last week against the Raiders and missed practice this week. Ty Chandler is expected to step into the starting role with Kene Nwangwu filling in as a backup. The Bengals represent a neutral matchup for opposing RBs making Chandler a viable Flex option given the expected volume.


Injury Alexander Mattison a DNP to begin Week 15
Suffered ankle injury midway through Week 14 win vs. Raiders
By: Doug Orth | Tue Dec 12, 10:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings held a walk-thru today, and WR Justin Jefferson participated on a limited basis. But RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) and RT Brian O'Neill both sat out. On a short week, they'll need to make quick recoveries to play vs. the Bengals. (ESPN.com - Kevin Seifert)

FFToday's Take: There is some belief Mattison could be dealing with a high-ankle sprain. If that ends up being the case, Ty Chandler would likely handle the majority of the workload on Saturday. While Mattison has played well as of late, he has shared carries with Chandler since Cam Akers was lost for the season. It seems unlikely Chandler would have to do likewise with Kene Nwangwu. Considering how rare it is to find a back with 15- or 18-touch upside nowadays, Chandler could be a mid-range RB2 this week if Mattison sits.
