Mike Boone News
Minnesota Vikings rookie running backs Roc Thomas (ankle) and Mike Boone are inactive in Week 2 against the Packers. That means that only Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray will be active in the backfield against Green Bay. Thomas has yet to be active in his rookie season.
Minnesota Vikings rookie running backs Roc Thomas and Mike Boone are inactive for Week 1 against the 49ers. Cornerback Mackensie Alexander is also out with an injury. The Vikings will go with only Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray in their backfield for the season opener. With slot corner Alexander out, expect rookie Mike Hughes to man the slot against San Fran.
Minnesota Vikings running back Mike Boone is "safely" on the 53-man roster, according to a source of Chris Tomasson. This is really no surprise as Boone was fantastic all preseason long and was regularly praised by Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Boone will be the RB3 behind the talented duo of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray, but he does seem like a player that the Vikings will want to get involved. Boone's fantasy value is severely limited for now, but an injury or a goal-line back designation would warrant a pickup.
Minnesota Vikings running back Mike Boone likely guaranteed his roster spot with a strong performance in the preseason finale. Boone carried the ball 15 times for a total of 56 yards while also gaining 53 yards in the air on two receptions. Unfortunately, Roc Thomas (Boone's competition) hurt his ankle in the second quarter and only finished with four carries for 12 yards. After the game, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer mentioned that Boone "showed well all preseason" and it seems increasingly likely that he will earn the RB3 role behind Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray. Currently, Boone has no fantasy value, but his stock could rise quickly if something were to happen to either guy in front of him.
Minnesota Vikings running back Mike Boone has been very impressive throughout training camp and preseason this year. Due to his performance, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune believes that Boone is currently winning the RB3 competition over Roc Thomas. Thomas had an explosive debut in the preseason opener, while Boone had a fantastic performance in the second game. Everything will come down to Thursday's preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans, but Boone's punishing running style just seems more suited for the Vikings offense. He'd be a valuable commodity if anything happened to Dalvin Cook or Latavius Murray, but he currently has no substance for fantasy purposes.
