Vikings' Alexander Mattison (ankle) expected to play in Week 15, but not 100%

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to have running back Alexander Mattison (ankle), who is not "100%" healthy, available for their Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions.

What It Means:

Mattison is trending towards suiting up for Sunday's game after missing Minnesota's last start, but it sounds like the Vikings will continue to operate with Ty Chandler as the lead back while Mattison continues dealing with his ankle injury. Mattison's availability should help with their depth, but he sounds unlikely to handle the kinds of workloads we saw from him earlier in the season.

Our models project Chandler for a solid 12.1 FanDuel points in today's game, with 60.1 rushing yards, 16.6 receiving yards, and 0.6 touchdowns. He has a $6,900 salary for today's contests.
