WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

The Vikings placed Alexander Mattison on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Mattison is apparently one of 27 positive tests around the NFL today. If Mattison is unvaccinated, he would be out for Week 15, so we'll see if there's word on his status soon.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (illness) is officially active for Week 15.

Mattison is back after his appendectomy earlier this month, and he’ll back up Dalvin Cook in a difficult matchup with the Bears.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (illness) is officially questionable for Week 15.

Mattison continues to work himself back into the mix, and he'll have a shot to return this Sunday to back up Dalvin Cook versus the Bears.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (illness) has officially been ruled out for Week 14.

Mattison is not quite ready to return form his appendectomy, which is not a surprise. Hopefully he's feeling better soon. Despite facing an elite Buccaneers run defense, Dalvin Cook is set for a heavy workload again this Sunday.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (illness) has been ruled out for Week 13.

This doesn't appear to be COVID-19 related at the moment, but Mattison is out for tomorrow against the Jaguars regardless. Hopefully Mattison is feeling better soon.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison is off the Wild Card Round injury report.

Mattison is officially set to return along with Dalvin Cook for the postseason. The rookie running back will mix in behind Cook against the Saints.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 17.

Perhaps the Vikings will want the rookie running back to get some work ahead of the postseason, but he seems likely to be held out so that he's ready to go when it matters. If you are planning to try to use Mattison in Week 17, Minnesota kicks off at 1:00 PM ET, so his status will be known in the morning.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) is officially inactive for Monday night.

Things were trending in this direction after the Vikings clinched a playoff berth with the Rams' loss on Saturday night, and Minnesota is not going to rush the rookie running back at less than 100%. Mike Boone is now set for a heavy workload and is in the RB1 mix for fantasy championship games.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night.

Mattison was able to get back on the practice field today, and it looks like he'll be a gametime decision for Week 16 against the Packers. This is a tough predicament for the many fantasy owners that picked up Mike Boone hoping to play him in fantasy title games, but Mattison is expected to be at less than 100% if he's active. Boone will likely be the better play if Mattison is active, but he would go from being in the RB1 mix to more of an RB2.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) did not practice today.

Mattison not even logging a limited session for the second day in a row doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up on Monday night, and it's possible he is ruled out tomorrow on Minnesota's final injury report. With Dalvin Cook (shoulder) reportedly unlikely to play in the final two games, Mike Boone may lead the backfield in Week 16 and Week 17.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) officially did not practice today.

There is said to be optimism about Mattison’s status for Monday night, but he sat for the first official practice of the week. We’ll track Mattison’s status the next couple of days.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

Alexander Mattison (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Mattison hasn't practiced all week while dealing with his ankle injury, and the Vikings have decided to rule him out ahead of the weekend. This could mean Dalvin Cook gets even more work against the Chargers on Sunday.

Alexander Mattison | Vikings RB

The Vikings have selected Boise State running back Alexander Mattison with the No. 102 pick (third round) in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Mattison scored 17 touchdown for the Broncos last year, and he could slide right in as the backup to Dalvin Cook in Minnesota. There might have been a couple more explosive options on the board to close out Day 2, but Mattison will bring some power as a compliment to Cook. For now, he’s just a late-round handcuff in redraft leagues.
