Alexander Mattison will get the start
Dalvin Cook is INACTIVE vs. Detroit. Alexander Mattison will get the start.
Cook went thru an on field warm up pregame after being listed as questionable. He would’ve split carries had he been active, the same plan MIN used last week, but the Vikings opted to rest him. (Vikings on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: the Vikings opted to play it safe with Cook which means Mattison becomes an RB1 play against the Lions. Ameer Abdullah could see some work in a change of pace role.
