    Headshot for Cam Akers

    Cam Akers‘ time in Los Angeles came to an expected end earlier this week when he was dealt to Minnesota. The move has led to questions about the Vikings’ pecking order at the running back spot, but the team’s depth chart appears set to remain the same at the top. Alexander Mattison took over RB1 duties […]

  • Ty Chandler Leads Minnesota Backfield In Second Preseason Game

    Headshot for Ty Chandler

    Minnesota Vikings running back Ty Chandler carried the ball 11 times for 24 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Tennessee Titans. His longest carry went for seven yards, as it was a tough night for the Minnesota backfield as a whole in the 24-16 loss. Chandler is competing for playing time with Kene Nwangwu and rookie DeWayne McBride, but it looks like he has the best shot at being the RB2 in this offense behind the clear starter Alexander Mattison. If he can hold onto the backup job as we near the regular season, Chandler would be nothing more than a handcuff to Mattison who projects to see the lion's share of touches in the Minnesota backfield. Fantasy managers can eye the North Carolina product towards the end of drafts in deep formats.

  • Ty Chandler Shows Promise During Preseason Opener

    Headshot for Ty Chandler

    Minnesota Vikings running back Ty Chandler is currently competing for the backup role behind Alexander Mattison. The 25-year-old worked as the primary back for the first half of Thursday's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. The former fifth-round pick showed his ability to make plays in both the rushing and receiving game. Chandler rushed 11 times for 41 yards, while making four receptions for 29 yards in the receiving game. His main competition is Kene Nwangwu (undisclosed) who missed the preseason opener. Chandler appears to have the edge right now for the change-of-pace role. He could have some stash value if Mattison were to miss time at some point.

  • Kene Nwangwu, Ty Chandler Not Running Away With Backup Job

    Headshot for Ty Chandler

    Neither Minnesota Vikings running backs Kene Nwangwu nor Ty Chandler has run away with the backup RB job behind starter Alexander Mattison in training camp this summer, and there are questions about their abilities in pass protection. It wouldn't surprise The Athletic's Alec Lewis if the Vikings took a shot on a veteran in free agency who has experience with an early down workload. Mattison is more of a power back, while Nwangwu and Chandler are speedy backs that give the Vikings a different element in the backfield. Chandler had just six carries for 20 yards in three games in his rookie season in 2022. Mattison figures to get all the work he can handle in the first year without Dalvin Cook in his way, leaving Nwangwu and Chandler to fight for scraps.

    With former star running back Dalvin Cook officially off the team, it’s now apparently the Alexander Mattison-era in Minnesota, according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN. Mattison’s opportunities in his first four seasons have been extremely limited due to Cook’s hold on the position, but with Cook a free agent, Mattison now gets the opportunity to […]
