It was the biggest fear since the injury happened during the Jets opening drive. HC Robert Saleh has already said the team will ride with Wilson, but it's a huge fantasy downgrade for the Jets WR group. The team could lean more on running backs Cook and Hall and the running game as a whole, as Hall was an obvious bright spot on Monday night. The Jets will likely bring in another quarterback, but for now the team looks primed to ride this out with Wilson at QB - and a very good defense.
NYJ RB Dalvin Cook - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 vs. New England Patriots
Dalvin Cook had only five touches for 12 total yards, but a lot of that to do with the Dallas defense. He is splitting time with RB Breece Hall and that should continue until Hall is closer to 100%.
Cook faces a tough New England run defense so although it will be better than last week, don't expect anything special for Week 3. Start Cook as a low-end RB3 or Flex as we expect the Jets to try to force the run more to protect Zach Wilson at quarterback.
