Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison rushed six times for 50 yards and caught four passes for 30 yards in a 43-34 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Mattison tied for the team lead in rushing yards and had more of an impact in the passing game the Dalvin Cook. Cook is still the headliner of the Minnesota backfield, but Mattison is one of the top handcuffs.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison was on the field for only two offensive snaps during the Divisional Round playoff game and finished with three yards on one carry.
Huddle Up: Mattison finished the regular season with 462 rushing yards and one touchdown but posted only 23 yards in two playoff games. He will only see a handful of carries each game as long as Dalvin Cook is healthy and probably should only be considered a handcuff to Cook in fantasy leagues next season.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) practice in full Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Mattison will be good to go for Sunday, Jan. 5's game against the New Orleans Saints, but so will starter Dalvin Cook (shoulder). There's no reason to start Mattison in any format with Cook acting as the workhorse in his return from injury.
