Dalvin Cook (hamstring) will not be active Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: 

With the Vikings facing one of the worst teams in the league this week, Dalvin Cook being ruled out is a huge blow for his fantasy owners. Those savvy enough to grab Latavius Murray off the waiver wire will reap the rewards, as Minnesota should enjoy a positive game script for nearly all 60-minutes, setting him up for a massive workload. Murray was involved in the passing game during his time in Oakland, but the Vikings haven't used him in that capacity thus far. Now that Jerrick McKinnon is in San Francisco, that very well could change on Sunday. Mike Boone likely serves as Murray's backup and could see a good amount of work if the game gets out of hand.
