News: 5 days agoMattison carried the ball seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown and caught two of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the 49ers.

Spin: The touchdown, Mattison's first rushing TD of the year, came early in the second half, but Dalvin Cook left the game on the Vikings' next drive with a shoulder injury and didn't return. If Cook's latest injury proves to be serious, Mattison could find himself back in the lead role for a very juicy Week 13 matchup with the Lions.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Minnesota selected Mattison in the third round of the 2019 draft and the former Boise State star has done an admirable job backing up Dalvin Cook over the past two seasons (4.6 YPC, 1.9 YAC, 7.7 YPT). Mattison doesn't see the field much when Cook is healthy, but showed well with 277 yards and three TDs on 58 touches in three games in relief of an injured Cook in 2020. Only six RBs scored more fantasy points those weeks. Mattison has no standalone value, but especially after the departure of Mike Boone, the 23-year-old is locked in as one of fantasy's top insurance options. He'll be in the RB1 discussion if Cook (two-plus missed games in all four NFL seasons) misses more time.
