Vikings' Ty Chandler to continue having 'enhanced role' in Week 12
What it means:
The Minnesota Vikings are expected to continue using RB2 Ty Chandler in an "enhanced role" in their Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. The Vikings are expected to continue rolling out Alexander Mattison as their starting running back, but have been finding some success by giving RB2 Chandler an increased workload in recent weeks. Chandler has worked in for 29 touches over the Vikings' last two games, tallying 155 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on those opportunities. This week, Chandler could have tough sledding ahead of him against the Bears' surprisingly stingy rushing defense, which has ceded the fifth-fewest rushing yards in the NFL this season. Our models project the second-year back, who has a $6,100 salary on FanDuel, for 7 fantasy points against Chicago.
