I think it is highly likely that Dalvin will either play or won’t play. If he does play, it’s highly likely he will either play the full game or won’t play the full game. 

Don't jinx it 😂

Yeah....we are all smart and handcuffed him with Mattison.

This is really a tough one...but it is laughable that Zimmer said he expects him to be 100%-- that is absurd hyperbole.

Lets also file away that this is also a medical staff that cleared Thielen and he was not near ready...

He's about to get lit up and cough that thing up.

If you watch the play he went out on, it looked like he wasn't even hit that hard. He basically just took a hard forearm shot to his chest and that's all it took. You'd have to think Detroit is hitting him there every time to try and get the ball. It's not magically going to heal on the short week, so if he was in that much pain just from that, I can't imagine him dealing with that an entire game. This should be interesting...

Are people here who own both Cook and Mattison starting one, both or what?  I own both and I'm torn.  One of them will likely but up less than 10 PPR points (wouldn't be surprised if it's Cook) so you almost have to hope the other has a huge game to make up for it.

i'm on record since yesterday, and i stand firm today: i'm starting Mattison even if Cook is active.

I don't think he plays.  Just me guessing but I don't see how they risk him against Detroit.  This team can contend for a Super Bowl but they need need a healthy Cook.  Zimmer saying Cook is 100% might be the worst violation of coach speak I've ever heard in my life.

I agree that they don't need Cook to beat the Lions but you never know.  Cook may want to give it a go to pad his season stats.

Depends on who your other RBS and flex play would be. I also have henry and fournette So nope I'm going all in on cook.

^ The kind of analysis I come here for.

Thanks man

He just got five targets, four receptions and 51 yards for only part of the game. Sounds like a reasonable receiving threat to me.

 

Edit: Mattison I mean.

...which equals his entire catch total for the rest of the year. I'm more than skeptical.

You mean to tell me a rookie has seen limited touches and targets playing behind one of the best three-down backs in the NFL? 

 

Nah.

I think it depends on whether Detroit can keep it reasonably close which is what Cook owners should be hoping for.  If they can somehow keep it close then he should have a very good game.  If it's a blowout by halftime, it will likely be all Mattison in the second half.

:lol: Enjoy your spin doctoring

How is that spinning anything? He is 6th in rushing attempts and I believe 7th in receptions. It should be no surprise his back-up has seen limited work.

don't forget this is the vikings who historically have not always made things the most easy for themselves.
