Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 9. Apparently, the plan is for Cook to play this week despite the fact that he has already reinjured his hamstring and would have two more weeks to rest if the Vikings held him out through their Week 10 bye. Depending on reports, Cook’s snaps will be limited to 8-12 (ESPN) or 15-20 (Minneapolis Star-Tribune). Cook has seen 0.36 touches per snap, so he could see 2.9-7.2 touches if his snaps fall into this range. Latavius Murray is still a strong play, though we would prefer that the Vikings hold Cook out to heal completely.

Scouting Report

Week 15 vs. Miami Dolphins

Dalvin Cook appears to be back to his normal self now, which is probably too late for fantasy owners who drafted him. He finished with 83 total yards and a touchdown as he's now averaging 88 yards over his last three games.

He gets a favorable matchup against the Dolphins this week, who are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing backs. Miami is giving up the third-most rushing yards per game (139.5) which is why we like Cook as a lower-end RB1 option.
