ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mattison re-signed with the Vikings and will take over as lead back after four seasons as the primary backup behind Dalvin Cook (released in June). Mattison's overall efficiency doesn't leap off the page (career 4.13 YPC, 1.91 YAC), but his production when Cook missed time can't be ignored. Cook was sidelined for four games in 2021 and Mattison proceeded to lead the NFL in touches (105), rushing yards (518) and fantasy points in his stead. Mattison has yet to clear 166 touches in a single season, so we don't want to get too carried away, but the 25 year old is well positioned as the lead back in one of the league's top-scoring offenses. He's safest as your second RB but he certainly has top 10 upside.
