Damien Harris A Barely-There RB4 In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 2:24 PM

Running back Damien Harris managed to find the end zone amid Week 2's smackdown of the Las Vegas Raiders for the first touchdown of his Buffalo Bills career. The 26-year-old finds himself in an intimidating matchup on deck against the Washington Commanders' stud nose-tackle combination of Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne. Harris has played behind Latavius Murray for scraps behind lead back James Cook in the opening two weeks, so fantasy managers would really be grasping at straws by inserting Harris into Week 3 lineups. Murray has siphoned five of Buffalo's nine red-zone touches among the three RBs. The power back, Harris, is at least a better bet to hit paydirt than Cook after out-touching him in the red zone 4-0 to this point. Harris probably needs Sunday's meeting to get out of hand in favor of Buffalo to return value as a TD-or-bust RB4/FLEX.

Alexander Mattison Rushes For 95 Yards In Week 4 Win

Sunday, October 1, 8:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison carried the ball 17 times for 95 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in the team's 21-13 win over the Panthers in Week 4. Mattison has looked solid in the past two games and looks to be the clear No. 1 option in the Vikings backfield despite the acquisition of Cam Akers. He had a favorable matchup against a porous Panthers' run defense in this one, but fantasy managers should continue to count on him moving forward as he should be in for a sizeable workload. The 25-year-old looks to be a solid RB2 option in Week 5 in what could be a high-scoring matchup with the Chiefs.
