2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Seeing Cook's breakout 2019 coming was truly one of the easiest fantasy calls in a long time. With the holy fantasy trinity of elite talent, workhorse role, and relative health, Cooks dazzled for much of the season, finishing in the top-10 in every relevant statistical category for running backs. He and Christian McCaffery were the only backs in the NFL to tally 1,100+ yards rushing, 500+ yards receiving and score double digit touchdowns. Incredibly consistent, Cook tallied all of his stats without ever having a 30-point standard league game!

Sure the season ending loss to the 49ers was an unmitigated disaster (26 total yards on 17 touches) and he still has to work with a below average line, but Cook is easily in the top-5 conversation again this year. I can't play what-if games with his contract, so let's assume that works itself out. Kubiak has stated this week that he isn't concerned with any time Cook might miss because he knows the system so well. With the offense breaking in a rookie receiver, there is room for those 303 touches from last season to rise. As one of the very few three-down workhorse backs in the NFL whose talent justifies it, there aren't many fantasy picks better at the position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Gary Kubiak expected to retire
Vikings will begin season with new OC for fifth straight season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 4, 9:40 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak plans to retire. Kubiak, 59, became assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in 2020, a year after joining the team as assistant head coach and offensive advisor. (Pro Football Talk - Mike Florio)

FFToday's Take: Plenty of folks had issues with the Vikings in 2020 as they struggled to overcome a young defense in a rebuilding year, but there's no question Kubiak played a role in Dalvin Cook enjoying a career year and Justin Jefferson breaking Anquan Boldin's 17-year-old NFL record for most receiving yards by a rookie in the Super Bowl era. While Cook and Jefferson should be able to thrive in just about any offensive system, it's fair to expect both to take a hit statistically in 2021.


Dalvin Cook out Week 17 due to personal matter
Death in the family
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 30, 11:35 am

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has returned home to Miami after his father, James, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday. Cook wanted to finish out an All-Pro caliber season, but felt it was best to be back home with his younger siblings. He won't play Sunday against the #Lions. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Alexander Mattison (concussion) missed Week 16 but would presumably get the start if he's able to clear the protocol. Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah will also be available.


Injury Alexander Mattison downgraded to Out with illness
Mike Boone could see work behind Cook
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 5, 3:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings’ RB Alexander Mattison was downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against Jacksonville due to an illness. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is interesting to note as Dalvin Cook got banged up a bit last week and head coach Mike Zimmer indicated they need to be mindful of Cook's workload. We could see a little bit of Mike Boone against the Jaguars on Sunday.


Injury Adam Thielen off COVID-19 list, expected to play
Thielen expected to practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 2, 11:00 am

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen’s isolation lasted 10 days. NFL players with asymptomatic cases can return after five days with two negative tests, or after 10 days from the initial positive test. Thielen is expected to practice Wednesday afternoon and play Sunday against the Jaguars, according to coach Mike Zimmer. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: In addition, Dalvin Cook (ankle) says "I'm feeling good, and I'm ready to roll." The Vikings should be back at full strength for their Week 13 plus-matchup against Jacksonville. The Jaguars give up the 5th most fantasy points to running backs and the 8th most fantasy points to wide receivers.
