2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
It was always going to be a long shot for Cook to reproduce the numbers of his monster 2020 season, but to call 2021 as anything less than a disappointment would be folly. Missing four games certainly didn't help, but when he was healthy, he was all but forgotten in the passing game (his 34 receptions were the lowest since his rookie year) and he only found the endzone 6 times after finding paydirt 30 times over the 2019 and 2020 seasons combined.

While his talent is unquestioned, and he suffered from a lack of offensive innovation and consistency last year, the injuries become a bigger and bigger caveat for the 26-year-old back. He's missed multiple games in every season in the NFL, with a shoulder injury being the big culprit last season. While his peak seasons may have passed, there is still plenty of RB1 value baked into his game. The fresh scheme on offense should see him moved around the formation more, and keep him out of stacked box situations. If he can remain efficient on a floor of 250 carries and 50 receptions he should be in the top-5 consideration at his position.

Injury Dalvin Cook removed from injury report, will play
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 12:04 pm

Minnesota Vikings
O’Connell said he feels good about where Dalvin Cook is at. Cook is not listed on the #Vikings’ final injury report, indicating he’ll be ready to go on Sunday. (Ben Goessling on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cook has a long history of shoulder issues, dislocating it multiple times throughout his career. He's expected to wear a brace and play against the Saints in London. Whether or not he gets his typical workload remains to be seen but it should be taken as a positive that he is off the injury report.


Injury Dalvin Cook day-to-day?
Suffered another dislocated shoulder in Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 26, 8:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings’ HC Kevin O'Connell said RB Dalvin Cook is day-to-day with his shoulder injury. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: This is at least the fourth significant shoulder injury Cook has suffered in his NFL career. According to head coach Kevin O'Connell, the expectation is that Cook will wear a brace or harness and play in Week 4 against the Saints in London. The good news is that the game will be played on Sunday morning, so managers will have the opportunity to pivot if necessary. While it is possible fantasy managers will see a little bit more of Alexander Mattison than usual, it appears as if Cook can be started in fantasy leagues.
