2024 Season Outlooks

Mattison signed with the Raiders this offseason, and he's expected to be the No. 2 running back to open the season behind Zamir White. Mattison is only worth drafting with a late-round pick in the majority of leagues. In 2023, Mattison struggled as the lead running back for the Vikings and averaged just 8.3 PPR points per game. Despite 180 carries, Mattison failed to score a rushing touchdown (he caught three scores), but he should play a prominent role with the Raiders behind an inexperienced starter in White. Rookie Dylan Laube will also have a role, likely in the passing game, but Mattison is the expected handcuff should something happen to White. Mattison is a good running back to stash on your bench just to see how White does in his first full season as the starter in Las Vegas.

It's difficult to fathom how Mattison, who averaged 20.1 fantasy points per game in six fill-in starts for Dalvin Cook in 2020-21, could flop so significantly when finally granted a full-time starter's role in 2023. To illustrate, he failed to exceed 17.5 points in any of 13 starts before an ankle injury hobbled him in December, and finished the season with beneath-league-average numbers in terms of yards per carry and explosive-play and first-down rates. It painted the picture of a depth piece, occasional fill-in and change-of-pace back rather than clear starter, and the Raiders inked Mattison in March for just that purpose. He could have his moments if asked again to pinch hit, but don't expect a full-timer's output.
