Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) missed practice Thursday after full reps Wednesday. Cook was initially reported as a full participant but the DNP is official, so he’s suddenly no longer on track to play in Week 7. If he’s out, Latavius Murray would once again carry the load as a fantasy RB2.

Scouting Report

Week 7 at New York Jets

Latavius Murray has been filling in while Dalvin Cook is in injury purgatory. Before last week, he'd been doing a poor job, but he suddenly had a burst of energy and exploded for 155 yards and a TD in Week 6.

Murray's value in fantasy is directly tied to whether or not Dalvin Cook plays. If Cook is inactive again, Murray is a solid RB2 play against the Jets. If Cook is active, then Murray is not much more than a distant RB4.
