Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison carried the ball eight times for 52 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. He also had a two-yard catch.
Huddle Up: Mattison continues to make plays when given the opportunity. The problem is it's nearly impossible to know what his workload will look like from one week to the next. Nonetheless, he's worth owning in all leagues.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed 13 times for 61 yards and caught two passes for three yards in a 19-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Mattison saw a few extra carries as the Vikings pounded the Redskins with 38 rushing attempts. He has impressed when given a chance, but with Dalvin Cook putting up MVP-caliber numbers, Mattison is a only handcuff for fantasy purposes currently.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison carried the ball seven times for 18 yards against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: After topping 50 yards in three of his last four games, Mattison was held to just 18 yards in Week 7, marking his second-lowest output of the year. He remains a must-own back, especially for Dalvin Cook owners, but Sunday's showing underscored what a risky play he is when Cook is healthy.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed for 63 yards on 14 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Mattison has rushed for at least 50 yards in three of the last four games and appears to have a decent role in the running game. He has a chance to be a flex option in some deeper standard leagues but is not a weekly starting option.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed for 52 yards on seven carries against the New York Giants in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Mattison has received at least seven carries in three of the five games this season and posted at least 49 yards in all three of those games. He could be a flex option in deeper standard leagues next week.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison gained 13 total yards on three touches against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Minnesota never got going offensively and played from behind for almost the entire game, leading to just 16 total carries. Mattison remains a nice handcuff for Dalvin Cook owners but carries marginal value (at best) on his own.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison carries 12 times for 58 yards and his first-career touchdown in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: The rookie out of Boise State saw double-digit touches for the first time this season, and it was a direct result of a lopsided score and the Vikings resting Dalvin Cook a little more. Mattison shot up draft boards with a great preseason and he is a nice handcuff to Cook, as well as a depth option for fantasy owners in deeper leagues. However, his ceiling is rather limited as long as Cook stays healthy.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed four times for 25 yards in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Mattison has a ton of upside and is worth stashing away for future weeks if something happens to Dalvin Cook. But Cook is tearing it up right now and Mattison will only see a handful of reps to give the starter a breather.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison posted nine runs for 49 yards in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: As long as Dalvin Cook is healthy, Mattison will be picking up the crumbs. Mattison's workload was likely a little higher with the game out of hand early on before the Falcons mounted some late offense to make it look closer. The Vikings travel to meet the Packers in Week 2.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison has been the talk of training camp and the preseason, according to national writer Jay Glazer. 'I mean, to a man, couldn't stop preaching his gospel,' Glazer said of the Vikings.
Huddle Up: Mattison has been coming into the preseason games ahead of Mike Boone, who has also been pretty strong in his play. Right now Dalvin Cook is the obvious starter, but if you're looking for a handcuff, look to Mattison in the later rounds. Even if you don't own stock in Cook, Mattison is also worth adding for running back depth in the later rounds, as it might take one Cook injury to thrust the rookie into the spotlight.
