RB Overview
Role Security: Very High
01/02/2023 Dalvin Cook is the lead back, playing roughly 80% of the snaps, and he sees 16-22 touches since Week 13. Alexander Mattison plays less than 20% of the snaps and averaging three touches since Week 6. In the Week 17 blowout loss to the Packers, the workload was closer to even. In the red zone, Cook is seeing 62% of the touches to 17% for Mattison.
WR Overview
01/02/2023 Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen are both full-time players seeing at least 90% of the snaps. Jefferson averages double-digit targets, and Thielen averages four since Week 15. K.J. Osborn is the clear No. 3, playing over 70% of the snaps, and he sees 2-7 targets in most games. He also had an incredible 16 targets in Week 15. It was clearly an outlier. Jalen Reagor has mixed in for a few snaps per game, though he's not much of a factor in the passing game.
TE Overview
01/02/2023 T.J. Hockenson plays over 90% of the snaps and averages nine targets since Week 11. Johnny Mundt is frequently used as a blocker, though he also sees occasional targets in the passing game.
