Cook is not happy with his contract situation, but I would think the Vikings, led by run game aficionado Mike Zimmer, will get something done. Adam Schefter indicated that if the contract isn’t settled by Week 1, it would give him “pause” when drafting Cook. Cook also has a long injury history, including a dicey right shoulder (that he re-injured late last year), so he has a higher risk of injury than most running backs. Cook is a no-brainer RB1 when active and healthy, but owners should prioritize Alexander Mattison in the draft.
