Alexander Mattison Rushes For 93 Yards In Loss

Sunday, September 24, 8:53 PM

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison carried the ball 20 times for 93 yards and added five receptions for 32 yards in the team's Week 3 loss. Mattison handled a hefty workload in this one, but that was with newly acquired Cam Akers being inactive. He still figures to be the lead back moving forward, but fantasy managers should expect a decrease in his value when Akers gets implemented into the Vikings offense. Moving forward, the 25-year-old looks like more of a FLEX option if he does in fact see a reduced role in an already pass-heavy offense.

Khalil Herbert Hopes To Be More Involved Week 3

Friday, September 22, 8:43 PM

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert will look to spark the Bears woeful offense from the backfield in Week 3 against the Chiefs. Chicago's offense has looked inept through the first two games and Herbert has seen only 16 carries to open the season. He has produced 122 total yards thus far but will face a Chiefs defensive line that has been stingy early in the season. Through two games, Kansas City has allowed the 10th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs across the league. Herbert has talent but the offense he plays in makes him, no higher, than an RB3 play in Week 3.
