Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

MIN RB Dalvin Cook - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Seattle

Cook had yet another impressive performance last week against Houston as he carried the ball 27 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns. This was the most carries Cook has seen all season and the first time this year he ended with more rushing attempts than Kirk Cousins had throwing attempts—a staple of the Minnesota offense in 2019. With Cook’s touches increasing every week, the Vikings want to run their offense through him, something that will prove challenging this week against Seattle.

The Seahawks are the top-ranked team in aFPA to RBs as they have only allowed 12.9 fantasy points to backs all season in half-PPR leagues. In addition to having a great run defense, Seattle’s poor secondary has allowed teams to carve them up through the air, something Cook owners will have to prepare for. Cook should still be viewed as a solid RB1 in this one as his workload will stay as consistent as ever.
