Player Notes
Nov 11 3:50am ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was solid during the narrow win over the Cowboys on Sunday, finishing with 26 carries for 97 yards and a score. Cook also contributed as a receiver, leading the team with seven receptions for 86 yards on a night where Adam Thielen (hamstring) sat. He remains in the conversation as the most efficient fantasy running back on the year and currently leads all rushers in yards this season, while also trailing Christian McCaffrey by one for most rushing touchdowns in the league with nine. Look for the dominance to continue --as long as he remains healthy --with his next chance to brutalize coming in Week 11 against Denver.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook ran 26 times for 97 yards and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Nov. 10. Cook also caught seven passes for 86 yards.

Fantasy Spin: It seemed like the Vikings watched Green Bay's Aaron Jones decimate Dallas as both a runner and receiver earlier this season and put Cook in the same spots to succeed. Cook looked much better than counterpart Ezekiel Elliott and is probably the No. 2 overall fantasy back at this point. He'll be relied upon once again next Sunday against a physical Broncos defense.

From TheHuddle

Nov 7 9:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had 116 scrimmage yards and four catches in Week 9, but it was a bit of a disappointing game given the extremely forgiving matchup. The Cowboys Defense await in Week 10, a unit that held Saquon Barkley to 28 rushing yards in Week 9 and hasn't given up a big game to a running back not named Aaron Jones all year. However, Cook has been an absolute force all season and it seems likely that the Vikings will feature him heavily with star wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) on the shelf. Thielen's absence actually enhances Cook's outlook as it increases his expected target share and potential red zone opportunities. Expect Cook to approach at least 20 touches once again and start him as top-tier RB1 in Week 10.

From RotoBaller

Nov 3 7:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 21 times for a mediocre 71 yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He added four catches for 45 yards on seven targets, too.

Fantasy Spin: It's amazing when 112 total scrimmage yards is considered average or disappointing, but that's how good Cook has been this season. He'll look to get back into the end zone in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

From TheHuddle

Nov 3 5:10pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 21 times for 71 yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also caught 4-of-7 targets for 45 yards in what was a somewhat disappointing effort against a bottom-tier run defense. Sadly, third-stringer Ameer Abdullah stole a red-zone touchdown in the third quarter. Cook still had a productive fantasy day as he's proven to have a stable floor even in games where the Vikings to throw more than they'd like to. Keep Cook plugged in as your RB1 for Week 10's matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

From RotoBaller

Nov 1 10:03pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, and the Chiefs have allowed the third-most rushing yards in the NFL this season.

Fantasy Spin: Cook currently leads the league with 823 rushing yards and 1,116 yards from scrimmage, and he could be headed to a monster performance against a vulnerable Kansas City defense.

From TheHuddle

Oct 31 7:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook has been pretty close to unstoppable this season. The third-year back is rushing for 102.9 yards per game and leads the NFL with nine rushing touchdowns in what's shaping up to be a two-man race for the "Best Fantasy RB" title with Christian McCaffrey. He gets to face off with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, a team that is currently ranked 30th in rush defense DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) and has allowed the third-most rushing yards per game (145) and second-most rushing touchdowns (10) this season. This game projects to be a shootout and the Vikings will again lean on their breakout star running back, so keep plugging Cook in as your RB1 and expect big results in Week 9. He should also be highly considered in all daily formats.

From RotoBaller

Oct 24 11:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 23 times for 98 yards and a touchdown and caught five of his six passes for 73 yards in a 19-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Fantasy Spin: Cook continues to thrive as an every-down back, and if Christian McCaffrey has been the best running back in 2019, Cook can't be far behind.

From TheHuddle

Oct 24 11:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 23 times for 98 yards and a touchdown in Week 8's win over the Washington Redskins. He also had five catches for 73 receiving yards in what has been an incredible start to his 2019 campaign. With the short week of preparation and without their top wideout Adam Thielen (hamstring), the Vikings leaned on Cook (and Mattison) heavily in the victory. Cook's touchdown was his ninth on the year, which leads the league. Cook and Christian McCaffrey are in a two-man race for fantasy's most valuable back to this point in the season. Start Cook as an RB1 in a mouthwatering matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.

From RotoBaller

Oct 23 10:30pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is leading the league with 725 rushing yards, a 5.5 yards per carry average, and eight rushing touchdowns. He's RB2 in half-ppr scoring (Christian McCaffrey). You're starting him without hesitation in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, who are allowing 134.4 yards per game on the ground. Cook could easily finish as the top running back of the week with the Vikings favored by 16 points at home (and with McCaffrey facing the 49ers Defense). The Vikings still run at the second-highest rate in the NFL and could lean on Cook even more in the absence of stud receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring). Cook remains an RB1 and he should be a priority play in daily formats as well.

Oct 22 1:00pm ET

Minnesota's RB Dalvin Cook scored 27.90 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 7 win in Detroit. Cook ran for 142 yards and caught one pass for 7 yards with two touchdowns.

Oct 20 9:13pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 25 times for 142 yards and two touchdowns and caught one of his two targets for seven yards in a 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 7.

Fantasy Spin: It was Cook's fifth 100-yard effort in the first seven games, and he is up to eight rushing scores. He's become a must-start RB1, and he should deliver another big line against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

From TheHuddle

Oct 20 7:00pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook tallied 25 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7's 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions. He also added one catch for seven yards. This was Cook's league-leading fifth 100-yard rushing game and he now has six touchdowns on the ground in what's becoming a breakout campaign for the third-year back out of Florida State. Cook has been absolutely dynamic all season and his ceiling is raised even higher with the form that Kirk Cousins and the play-action passing game is in. Cook is a surefire RB1 and will arguably be the top option at running back in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 4:30pm ET

Vikings' RB Dalvin Cook ran for 142 yards on 25 carries with two touchdowns in Sunday's win in Detroit.

Oct 17 8:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is in line for a monster game in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. The Lions Defense has already given up seven rushing touchdowns and are allowing 5.1 yards per carry and 133.8 rushing yards per game. They've also allowed a running back to score at least 20 PPR points in 4-of-5 weeks. Cook only received 18 touches in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles and still had a useful fantasy day (54 yards and a touchdown) despite the brutal matchup. Expect his touches to return to the 20-25 range as the Vikings will again look to feature him in their run-heavy attack. Start Cook as a top-tier RB1 option with tremendous upside and consider using him in all daily formats as well.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 10:30pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 16 times for 41 yards and a touchdown in a Week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Cook also caught both of his targets for 13 receiving yards. The Vikings opted to win this game through the air and it worked, though Cook's fantasy owners would've liked to see him a little more involved in the passing game. Cook remains an elite RB1 play moving forward and should be started with confidence against the Detroit Lions in Week 7.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 6:13pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. He also caught two passes for 13 yards during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Cook was not as successful this week as he has been in previous weeks but is still one of the focal points in the offense for the Vikings. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues next week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 9:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is averaging 108.4 rushing yards/game and 5.9 yards per carry through five weeks. He also has five rushing touchdowns and has seen at least five targets in three consecutive games - you're starting him as your RB1 in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Expectations should be slightly tempered, though, as the Eagles have allowed a league-low 63 rushing yards/game and rank second in yards per carry allowed. They aren't elite against pass-catching backs, however, as they've had three running backs rack up six catches or more and four running backs top 37 receiving yards against them. Expect Cook to register 20 touches or more as the featured player in the offense and lock him in with confidence as your RB1.

From RotoBaller

Oct 8 1:00pm ET

Minnesota Vikings' RB Dalvin Cook scored 26.80 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 5 win in New York Giants. Cook ran for 132 yards and caught six passes for 86 yards.

Oct 6 5:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had another monster performance in Week 5's road win over the New York Giants. He rushed 21 times for 132 yards (6.3 yards per carry) and caught all six of his targets for 86 yards in the victory. Cook again looked extremely explosive while displaying great vision all game long - he now has four games rushing for over 100 yards in 2019. It was surprising that Cook didn't find the end zone, but fantasy owners can't complain about his continued elite volume and production. Cook is a top-3 RB1 in Week 6's home matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles and should be strongly considered for daily formats as well.
