When news came out that Boise State starting RB Alexander Mattison missed the spring, it was a surprise that gave fantasy owners some pause as draft season approached. It appears like everything will be just fine for Mattison, who’s projected as a Top 15 fantasy RB in 2018 in our rankings.
Mattison will be the No.1 running back come fall time after rushing for more than 600 yards last season. Running backs coach Lee Marks said of Mattison, “He’s taken the role like ‘this is my show, and I’m not giving it up.’“ Still, the Broncos’ 143.5 rushing yards per game were the fewest since 1996, their first year in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
“We want to run the ball more effectively, be a better downhill run team, be a better overall run team,” Harsin said. “… Whatever it is, we want to be able to run the ball.”
This is great news and you are hearing directly from the source that Boise State is going to run the ball. The Boise State run game is likely to substantially improve in 2018, resulting in plenty of points for your Mattison.
