Alexander Mattison News

  • Alexander Mattison disappoints · Sep 16, 2023

    Alexander Mattison disappointed again in week two, rushing for only 28 yards on eight carries.

    He also totaled three receptions for 11 yards. It was a short week, but a similar result as the Vikings didn't take care of the football and found themselves behind again. In short, this was another team failure which altered the script. Aside from team mistakes, he lost a fumble himself and was largely ineffective in his rushing attempts. It's far too early for coaches rostering Mattison to leap off the bandwagon and he still projects as the starter on a team lacking rhythm and execution. But another two week's of poor performance could see impactful change that could result in changes in the back's usage. He's listed as DLF's RB27 and could begin a further slide if he doesn't produce soon.

  • Alexander Mattison an afterthought · Sep 11, 2023

    Alexander Mattison had 34 rushing yards, three catches, ten receiving yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's opening day loss to Tampa Bay.

    It was a rough day at the office for Mattison, who had just 14 touches in the game while watching Kirk Cousins throw the ball a whopping 44 times. There should be better days ahead for Mattision should the Vikings balance out their offense but he's looking like a RB2/Flex at the moment more than a true RB1 Dalvin Cook replacement. Mattison remains a solid hold in dynasty leagues. On the plus side, Ty Chandler had just three carries as a distant RB2 on the depth chart.

  • Alexander Mattison is ready · Jun 24, 2023

    Alexander Mattison is "going above and beyond this offseason to ensure he's ready for a featured role."

    Mattison continues to lag in the rankings, currently found as DLF's RB27 as Minnesota's perceived new RB1. The recently-turned 25-year-old inherited the starting role after Dalvin Cook was released earlier this month, but there appears to be concern within the dynasty community that Mattison may not be up to the challenge of retaining the new role. These concerns may have merit as the fifth-year back has averaged less than 3.8 ypc. in limited touches over the past two seasons. As it stands, Mattison is a potential three-down player able to produce as a rusher and receiver but will need prove he can be productive if he is going to hold off the team's youth options of Ty Chandler and DeWayne McBride.

  • Alexander Mattison moves up · Jun 8, 2023

    With the pending release of Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison is primed to operate as the RB1 for the Vikings

    Mattison signed a two-year contract earlier this offseason and isn't a free agent until 2025, paving the way for the soon-to-be 25-year-old for two years of carry-the-load production. He'll inherit an upside role with significant potential though Mattison's previous production behind starter Dalvin Cook has been less than stellar. That said, entering his fifth season, Mattison possesses the size and receiving ability to factor on all three downs and should garner a significant workload in 2023. He's is listed as DLF's RB37 and carries significant upside potential given his current value.

  • Alexander Mattison three-down capable · Jun 2, 2023

    Kevin O'Connell believes Alexander Mattison is a three-down back

    It's one of the hottest stories in 2023 related to the running back position and Mattison's prospects hinge on the team's decision related to release, or trade, Dalvin Cook. It's widely believed the Vikings will move on from Cook and now beyond June 1, we may not be waiting long for the answer. Whether the team releases the veteran or is able to work out a trade remains to be seen, but should Cook remain in Minnesota, Mattison's 2023 prospects would suffer. Cook has been linked to both Miami and Buffalo as possible trade destinations. As for Mattison, DLF's RB39, who turns 25 this month, he could see a significant boost to his dynasty ranking if/when news of Cook's departure is official. Until then, he's a risk-on acquisition on the potential Cook, somehow, remains in Minnesota. Patient dynasty managers may want to seek acquisition now ahead of the expected Cook move.
