Draft note
by John Paulsen
In 15 games over the last two seasons, Cook has averaged 17.2 touches for 90.9 total yards and 0.40 touchdowns per game. That equates to 13.2 points per game in half-PPR formats. Had he played 16 games at that pace, he would have finished as the No. 12 running back in 2018. One thing really working in Cook’s favor is the Vikings’ decision to promote Kevin Stefanski from interim OC to full-time OC. In four games under Stefanski last year, Cook averaged 18.0 touches for 103.5 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game. The resulting 16.5 points per game is more than what Joe Mixon scored as the No. 9 running back last year. The big question is -- can he stay healthy?

MIN RB Dalvin Cook - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Dalvin Cook was able to thrive last week despite Minnesota's passing game excelling. He carried the ball 21 times for yards and caught six passes for 86 yards. He didn't score a touchdown, but 218 scrimmage yards should please most fantasy owners. Cook is averaging 22.6 touches per game, which is a remarkable number. It's nice when a player gets that kind of volume in any game, so to average that over a season makes Cook one of the most valuable players in fantasy. He gets a tough matchup against the Eagles this week (Philadelphia is allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to backs), but Cook is too good to ignore. He's an easy must-start RB1.
