ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mattison is entering his fourth NFL season, all of which have been spent as Dalvin Cook's backup in Minnesota. Mattison has been limited to eight career TDs and has yet to manage a top-35 fantasy campaign in the role. He's played at a high level (career 4.2 YPC and 6.6 YPT), but simply hasn't had standalone value when Cook has played. Cook was sidelined for four games in 2021 and Mattison produced 518 yards and three TDs on 105 touches in his stead. He paced all backs in fantasy points during the span. Mattison is extremely young for a fourth-year vet (24), but he'll remain no more than an elite insurance option as long as Cook is in the picture.
