NEWS: Alexander Mattison (concussion) is out for Week 16 against the Saints; Ameer Abdullah and Mike Boone will split some back-up carries in Week 16.
FANTASY TAKE: Expect to see a whole bunch of Dalvin Cook in this one. Despite the tough match-up against the Saints, he could easily rack-up well over 100 total yards with a strong shot at a touchdown.
Let’s talk 2021 and Dynasty: Dalvin Cook is a lock inside the top 1-3 overall heading into early 2021 fantasy football drafts (dynasty and redraft). He has some relatively-big injury risk, though, so be sure to handcuff Mattison to Cook in all formats. It’s a must. I know Mattison crapped the bed this year when he got his solo start, but he is a top 10RB if ever forced to start for the Vikings. That’s huge when you can near-guarantee yourself top 10RB numbers by holding a RB duo.
