Alexander Mattison was extremely active as a receiver in training camp. It’s also noted in the report that the coaching staff is fully committed to Mattison being “the guy.”
Fantasy Impact: After Dalvin Cooks’s release, Mattison was the clear RB1 in Minnesota. He might not be the talent Cook is, but receiving work is never a bad thing for a running back, providing a stable floor and a high ceiling. He’s a solid RB2 for fantasy rosters.
