Sep 19 9:03pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt lead the NFL with six big-play rushes - defined as runs that cover more than 10 yards - through two games.

Sep 17 5:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Sep 17 4:50pm ET

Expectations were high for rookie Dalvin Cook going into Sunday's game after news that Sam Bradford would be inactive. Cook set a franchise record in his debut. Pat Shurmur followed up the big performances with just 12 rushes that went for 62 yards (5.3 YPC) includnig a long 25-yard scamper. With the offense so stagnant in Pittsburgh, the team should look for a return to the ground against Tampa Bay.

Sep 16 4:00pm ET

Vikings' rookie running back Dalvin Cook will continue to see ample opportunity into Week 2. After setting a franchise record for debut rushing yards, Cook is going to be tested by a Pittsburgh defense that held Isaiah Crowell to 33 yards on 17 carries. The rookie is still expected to be fed against the stout front seven of Pittsburgh if Sam Bradford is unavailable.

Sep 16 11:03am ET

New Orleans Saints LB Alex Anzalone was fined $24,309 by the National Football League for a hit on RB Dalvin Cook in Week 1's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Cook had dropped a screen pass and Anzalone had tripped over a block right before the hit but ended up making contact while trying to regain his balance.

Sep 14 2:10pm ET

Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Dalvin Cook will continue to see heavy usage in the backfield after receiving 25 touches in his NFL debut in Week 1, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Cook rushed 22 times for 127 yards and also caught three passes for 10 yards against the Saints in his first game action. He'll have a tougher go of it on the road against Pittsburgh in Week 2, but he should remain in all starting lineups as an RB1 with big volume.

Sep 14 1:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook will keep being used as a workhorse running back, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Cook received 25 touches in the Vikings' Week 1 win.

Sep 12 7:00pm ET

Rookie Dalvin Cook unseated franchise great Adrian Peterson for the most rushing yards in a professional debut. The second-rounder finished with 127 yards on 22 carries in addition to three receptions. Cook was one of the week's featured rushers as his 22 rushes ranked third to Leonard Fournette and Ezekiel Elliott. A good sign of things to come, Cook is in line for big production as a rookie.

Sep 12 1:23am ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook shined in his NFL debut Monday, Sept. 11, against the New Orleans Saints, recording 127 rushing yards on 22 carries. He added 10 receiving yards on three receptions.

Sep 11 10:30pm ET

Vikings' RB Dalvin Cook ran for 127 yards on 22 carries but no touchdowns in Monday's win against the Saints.

Sep 9 11:13pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, and the Saints allowed the fourth-most rushing touchdowns last year and allowed opposing running back to catch 85 passes for 868 yards.

Sep 8 1:53pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook will likely operate as the team's workhorse back in Week 1 versus the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin.

Sep 7 10:00am ET

Injuries and limited practice cut into Latavius Murray's adjustment period with his team. Murray met questions about the duo simply, "Dalvin has earned the starting position...I need to continue to just really show them (he can) still play..at a high level." The second rounder has been named the starter and is expected to play a major role in the passing game while Murray appears more slated for work inside the 20s.

Sep 5 2:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is listed as the starting running back on the Vikings' official depth chart.

Sep 5 1:00pm ET

Rookie Dalvin Cook will look to follow up a strong preseason with an even greater start to the regular season. Cook has been dubbed a favorite candidate for Rookie of the Year with expected contributions in both the passing and running game. Latavius Murray appears more in line for a red zone in the long-term, creating more chances for Cook. New Orleans has made strides on the defensive end, but Cook should find regular opportunity.

Aug 29 11:20am ET

Rookie running back Dalvin Cook saw his first poor performance of the preseason as he was outmatched by the 49ers' defense. Cook carried the ball five times for 17 yards in addition to one reception for a loss of five. This was a depiction of what many expect this year with the offensive line unable to create space. Cook is flying up draft boards, especially as a PPR option, but the limited talented around him may cap his ceiling.

Aug 19 1:33am ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed seven times for 40 yards Friday, Aug. 18, in a 20-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Aug 19 1:10am ET

Rookie running back Dalvin Cook delivered another strong performance on the gridiron, this time against the Seattle Seahawks. Cooks carried the ball seven times for 40 yards, his long being a fair 15 yard gain. His role in the passing game was step down from last week as he garnered just three targets. His one reception went for 10 yards. Minnesota remains lost in the run game when Cook is sidelined, promising heavy work in extended playing time come the regular season regardless of Latavius Murray's role.

Aug 11 3:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings rookie RB Dalvin Cook has impressed the team with his receiving skills throughout the spring and during training camp. '(Cook's work in the passing game has) been tremendous throughout (training) camp, and I think it's something that we noticed pretty early on during (spring drills). He continued to show it throughout the camp, and I think he's going to be a valuable asset, not only in the run game, but I think we're going to be able to utilize him in the pass game,' quarterback Sam Bradford said.

Aug 10 10:10pm ET

Rookie running back Dalvin Cook made a statement in his professional debut as he flashed immediate versatility. The Vikings turned to the second-round pick early and often in both the running and passing game. He was one of the few bright spots on offense as he carried the ball five times for 13 yards while hauling four passes for another 30 yards. Minnesota's offensive line struggled in both facets of the game, a major piece that needs to improve in order for Cook to become a reliable contributor.
