Ty Chandler- Drawing Praise as Part of "One-Two Punch"
2 weeks ago

Vikings teammates have reiterated throughout the offseason that Chandler looks like one of the team’s most explosive players.

Ty Chandler made a splash at the end of last year, and looked like he had the potential to lead the Vikings backfield in 2024 before they signed Aaron Jones. While many expect Jones to have a workhorse role in Minnesota, teammate Harrison Phillips expressed the sentiment that the Vikings have two true number 1 running backs. There figures to be plenty of fantasy relevance for the Vikings backfield with rookie J.J. McCarthy behind the helm, as you can expect the team to rely on the running and short passing game to not overwhelm their young signal caller.


This type of teammate and coach speak in June isn’t something to overreact to. Chandler is a solid handcuff to Jones but doesn’t project as a flex play unless something were to happen to Jones. Jones has struggled with injuries the past few years, so it’s wise to plan on him missing a few games, and you can expect Chandler to fill in seamlessly when that time comes.

Alexander Mattison Released by Vikings| Ty Chandler Value Sky Rockets
3 months ago

The Minnesota Vikings are moving forward without Alexander Mattison at the Running Back position.

The Minnesota Vikings have informed Alexander Mattison that he will be released.  A year after moving on from Dalvin Cook, the Vikings have now moved on from last season’s Week 1 starter Mattison.


In 2023 offseason Mattison signed a two-year deal.  This was Mattison’s chance to become the bell-cow running back others thought he could be.  After, an underwhelming performance during the season and injury the Vikings turned to Ty Chandler.  The move saved Vikings $3.35 million, while creating $1.25 million in dead money against the salary cap.


Looks like the Vikings will move forward with Ty Chandler and most likely add another running back either via draft or a veteran through free agency.  As for Mattison this could be the last we hear of his fantasy relevance after being in Minnesota for 5 years.

Vikings RB Ty Chandler Officially RB1; Mattison's Return Still Unknown
6 months ago

Minnesota Vikings head coach, Kevin O’Connell has announced Ty Chandler will handle RB1 duties with Alexander Mattison acting as the relief back.

Minnesota Vikings RB Ty Chandler took over the starting position on the depth chart after a Week 15 ankle injury to Alexander Mattison, and with Mattison’s impending return, Chandler seems to have earned the job outright.

According to Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell, in a press conference, even when Mattison returns, Chandler is, “gonna be a guy that we’re trying to get the ball to a lot, both in the run and pass,” adding that Mattison will provide “bonus depth.” Mattison’s return is unknown, but could be as early as Week 16 vs. Detroit. While he hasn’t been ruled out, he was not included in the week’s Wednesday walkthrough.

Chandler is coming off a game in which he recorded 26 total touches and finished as PPR RB4. He is averaging 4.65 yards per carry and 7.19 yards per catch to Mattison’s respective averages of 3.93/6.44. Repeats of his Week 15 performance against Cincinnati could make Chandler a league winner in the fantasy playoffs.

Mattison Suffers Concussion; Chandler Steps Up Week 10
7 months ago

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison suffered a concussion versus the Saints.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell reported that Alexander Mattison sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of the game. He will be monitored, and it’s probable that he’ll be out next week, with hopes for a return in week 12. This creates an opportunity for Ty Chandler to take on a more significant role, who scored a touchdown contributing to the Vikings’ pursuit of a fifth consecutive win. We hope for a speedy recovery.
