2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
While he was never called on for more than mop-up or breather duty, Mattison did well to live up to the hype he got last offseason. The former 3rd round pick put together a strong 4.6 yards-per-carry average on his 100 attempts, and showed he's more than capable of filling in if Cook's threat to hold-out comes to fruition. Mattison is one of the few MUST HAVE handcuffs in fantasy, both because he's actually got starting caliber talent, and he'll likely get a largely undisputed role if Cook isn't playing. There is always that one owner who likes to grab back-up runners with upside, so if you own Cook be prepared to pay a draft premium for peace of mind.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Vikings rule out Dalvin Cook for Week 6
Groin injury

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings injury report vs. Falcons Out: RB Dalvin Cook (groin), CB Kris Boyd (hamstring), G Dru Samia (wrist), WR K.J. Osborn (hamstring) Doubtful: CB Holton Hill (foot) (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This was expected after Cook left Week 5 early with a groin injury and the Vikings having a Week 7 bye. Alexander Mattison should have a workhorse role against the Panthers with Mike Boone filling a backup role. The Panthers have given up the most fantasy to running backs through five weeks.

This is what makes the most logical sense. From what I'm hearing everything is leaning this way for Dalvin Cook in Week 6, meaning Alexander Mattison would get the nod in his place. Would give Cook two weeks to recover ahead of Green Bay in Week 8. (Courtney Cronin on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears Cook's groin injury is minor but it won't be a surprise if the Viking hold him out in Week 6 considering they have a bye in Week 7. Alexander Mattison would get the start and be an immediate RB1 against the Falcons soft defense. Mike Boone would play in a backup role


Injury Dalvin Cook likely has minor groin injury
Injured early in the second half of Week 5 loss

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer on Dalvin Cook's MRI today. "It went pretty well so we'll see how he does this week." (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It beats the alternative, but it's safe to assume Cook will be questionable at best for Week 6 against the Falcons. Fantasy owners would love nothing more than getting to see Cook operate against a defense that gets destroyed almost annually by running backs in the passing game and is doing so again in 2020. With Minnesota looking at a Week 7 bye, Alexander Mattison should be expected to get the start and would have RB1 upside if Cook sits.
