2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite flashing a tantalizing combination of speed and power during his first two seasons in the league, being healthy has kept Cook from approached his true statistical potential. Missing 17 games over his first two seasons due to ACL and lower leg injuries, the Vikings desperately need Cook to be the main cog in the offense this season.

After being eased in to start the season, the promotion of Stefanski might have given us a small look into the usage numbers we can expect in 2019. Cook's 46 carries over the final three games were by far the most of any 3-game stretch during the season, and he continued to display the dual-threat traits that top tier fantasy backs need with 40 receptions for 305 yards.

There is a lot to like about Cook's fantasy prospects this year. He's nearly two years removed from his ACL tear, and has absolutely no proven back-up behind him on the depth chart to lose touches to. The Vikings offense is looking to emphasize ball control offense, and the defense gives them short fields and extra chances via turnovers. Throw in the fact that the passing game is scary enough that he'll never have to face stacked fronts, and the invested draft capital and free agent dollars to strengthen the interior line, and all signs point to a major breakout potential. With everything in his corner, health is the only thing that stands in the way of a RB1 season from Cook. He's the Tier 2 back I like the most and would consider taking over guys with slighter higher ADPs. If he can play close to 16 games this year, Cook is going to win some fantasy championships.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Adam Thielen not practicing Wednesday
Vikings get limited practice from Dalvin Cook
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Dec 4, 5:55 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Ben Goessling (@GoesslingStrib) on Twitter: "The Vikings, who are effectively going through a walk through this afternoon, already issued their injury report. Adam Thielen, Riley Reiff and Linval Joseph did not practice; Dalvin Cook, Everson Griffen, Eric Wilson, Shamar Stephen and Harrison Smith were limited." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lots of injuries looming for the Vikings, who lost a tough one to the Seahawks on MNF. Alexander Mattison should be on everyone's radar for Wek 14 if Cook can't go, and Diggs remains a lock-n-load WR1 if Thielen is out again.


Injury Dalvin Cook indicates he'll play in Week 14
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 4, 12:30 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook’s shoulder injury is a pain tolerance deal, and he said he’s been told there shouldn’t be a risk of injuring it worse. Reiterates he’ll play Sunday vs Lions. “I gotta work on” holding onto the ball when hit there. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cook left last week's game with a shoulder injury but maintains's his stance that he'll play against the Lions. If he sits, Alexander Mattison would become an obvious plug an play in Week 14.
