Ty Chandler Now Vikings No. 1 Running Back

Friday, March 1, 12:15 AM

After the release of running back Alexander Mattison on Thursday, Minnesota Vikings running back Ty Chandler is the team's starter at the position. After the release of Dalvin Cook, Mattison operated as Minnesota's lead back in 2023, taking 180 carries for 700 yards and no rushing touchdowns. Chandler, a former fifth-round pick in 2022, served as a complementary back and saw 102 rushing attempts for 461 yards (4.5 yards per carry) and three rushing scores, adding 21 receptions for 159 additional yards in his second season. The 25-year-old was more efficient than Mattison and should have a bigger role in Minnesota's backfield in 2024, but the Vikings will likely look to add to their RB through the offseason, through either the draft or free agency, or both.

De'Von Achane A Non-Factor Against Chiefs

Monday, January 15, 11:49 AM

Miami Dolphins running back De'Von Achane wasn't able to break off any huge plays in the wild-card loss on Saturday night like he has throughout the regular season. The rookie back capped off his first season with a sub-par performance after registering nine yards on six carries and hauling in three of his six targets for 21 yards. His longest play of the night was an 11-yard catch-and-run where he showed off some elusiveness but ultimately wasn't able to find much room. After taking a backseat to Raheem Mostert for most of the season, Achane quickly became one of the hottest waiver-wire additions after displaying astounding explosiveness. He played his way into a lead role until he got hurt, so he'll likely receive more opportunities as the lead back next year. He'll probably be a higher fantasy draft pick next season than his counterpart in the backfield.
