Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone managed 11 runs for 28 yards in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers in place of the injured RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder). Boone also added a catch for five yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Boone laid an egg for anyone who risked a roster spot on him. He was a disappointing even for those in the deepest of fantasy formats. He'll look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Chicago Bears.

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone is likely to receive the bulk of the carries in Week 16's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: With RB Dalvin Cook (chest) having already been ruled out and RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) also not expected to play this week, Boone should be the focal point of Minnesota's running game on Monday night. Boone had 13 carries for 56 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Chargers and should be viewed as at least a flex option in fantasy leagues this week.

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone carried the ball 13 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15. Boone came on after RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) was injured.
Huddle Up: With Alexander Mattison (ankle) inactive, Boone took over when Cook injured his shoulder. Minus any definitive updates it's hard to know whether or not either player will return in Week 16, but Boone could be a hot commodity on waivers if he's thrust into a key role on Monday night against the Packers.

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone rushed 13 times for 91 yards and
a touchdown in the preseason game against the Jacksonville
Jaguars on Saturday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: Boone is pushing for the third running back job in a competition
with Roc Thomas and Mack Brown. He certainly didn't do anything
to hurt his chances in this one, but it will take a long-term
injury to Dalvin Cook or Latavius Murray before he has any
