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 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Green Bay Packers

As we expected, Minnesota leaned heavily on Dalvin Cook, and he delivered. He carried the ball 21 times (third-most among backs in the first week) for 111 yards and two touchdowns. He even caught two of Kirk Cousins' eight passes on the day (nine yards). Minnesota clearly has a run-first mentality, and Cook should benefit every week from that as long as he stays healthy.

He draws a decent matchup against the Packers this week. It's hard to know too much about Green Bay's run defense because it wasn't really tested in Week 1. Chicago ran just 11 times with its backs against Green Bay. Expect Minnesota to let Cook get many opportunities, which makes him a must-start RB1.
