Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison resumes his role as the top handcuff in fantasy football in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions. With starter Dalvin Cook likely out for the next two weeks, Mattison steps into a smash spot against a defense that gives up the fifth most points to opposing running backs. In the two games Mattison has started in 2021, he has averaged 25.5 carries, 6.5 catches and 162 total yards per game. As long as Cook is sidelined, Mattison will be a locked-in RB1 given the volume and usage that he will have.
San Francisco 49ers Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. He missed the first two days of practice but was a limited participant on Friday. The 26-year-old suffered a low-ankle sprain during the first quarter of Saturday's Divisional-Round game over the Green Packers and did not return. Fantasy managers should check back 90 minutes before Sunday's 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff to ensure he's active before inserting the 49ers running back into DFS lineups. If active, Wilson isn't expected to have much of a fantasy impact with starter Elijah Mitchell (ankle) off the injury report.
San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was limited at practice earlier in the week due to an ongoing knee issue. On Friday, the 23-year-old was a full participant and was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game. He rushed for 85 yards on 21 carries in his previous game against the Rams. Mitchell will lead San Francisco's backfield and is expected to be heavily rostered with a $ 7,000 price tag on FanDuel for Sunday's main DFS slate.
With the news that Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has taken the New York Giants head coaching job, the Miami Dolphins appear to have two options left: 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel and Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Moore would likely bring a more pass-oriented offense to the team than McDaniel would, but McDaniel has also gotten a lot of attention for how well he understands modern NGL offenses. Either way, an offensive mind coming in as the head coach is good news for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Allen Robinson are likely to part ways this offseason. Fowler also believes that the Indianapolis Colts would be a potential fit for Robinson. If he officially leaves Chicago, the team will need to find a way to bolster its receiving corps to help second-year passer Justin Fields out.
The New York Giants are hiring Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as the team's new head coach. The 46-year-old took over as Bills offensive coordinator in 2018 and has been instrumental in building an offense around quarterback Josh Allen, turning him from a polarizing prospect into one of the NFL's best quarterbacks. Can he do the same with Daniel Jones (or some other quarterback that the Giants end up bringing in)? We'll see. But Jones does become more interesting in fantasy now, as does the rest of this Giants offense.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Despite the status, Jefferson has practiced this week and appears to be in line to play on Sunday. Through two playoff games, Jefferson has just three receptions, so there's a low floor for fantasy players who choose to use him in DFS lineups this weekend.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Williams didn't play last week and had just one carry for four yards in the playoff game against the Steelers, so his status for Sunday's game won't matter much when it comes to fantasy, as he'd be at best the No. 3 back on the team with a low floor and a low ceiling.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals. But Mathieu has already returned to practice, making it look likely that the Chiefs defensive back will be cleared to play in Sunday's contest. Mathieu will be a vital part of slowing down the Bengals offense and makes the Chiefs defense an interesting DFS play.
San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) was able to get in a limited session during Thursday's practice. Fantasy managers shouldn't be alarmed as the team is likely just managing his reps. He doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing the NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend. Mitchell should be the workhorse back once again on Sunday. He has seen 20 or more touches in seven straight games. He'll be tough to ignore in DFS contests for this weekend.
San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) was able to get in a limited practice on Thursday. He is recovering from an ankle injury he suffered during last week's Divisional Round. The 49ers are hopeful he can play this weekend versus the Los Angeles Rams. However, Wilson doesn't offer much fantasy value with Elijah Mitchell getting a majority of the carries. There's a small chance that Wilson makes a significant impact, assuming he's healthy enough to play on Sunday.
