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

Once again, it looked like Dalvin Cook was going to play last week only for him to be ruled inactive. He practiced in full on Wednesday only to not practice on Thursday, leaving his availability for Sunday up in question. Cook has shown promise when he has played, but he hasn't done much of that in 2018 so it's difficult to know where he's at right now.

Assuming he does play, he gets a decent matchup against the Jets this week. New York is in the middle of the league when it comes to defending backs, so Cook should be fine if healthy. We like him as a low-end RB2 or flex play against the Jets.
