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
Injury Vikings rule out Dalvin Cook for Week 6
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 16, 1:40 pm

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings injury report vs. Falcons Out: RB Dalvin Cook (groin), CB Kris Boyd (hamstring), G Dru Samia (wrist), WR K.J. Osborn (hamstring) Doubtful: CB Holton Hill (foot) (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This was expected after Cook left Week 5 early with a groin injury and the Vikings having a Week 7 bye. Alexander Mattison should have a workhorse role against the Panthers with Mike Boone filling a backup role. The Panthers have given up the most fantasy to running backs through five weeks.

This is what makes the most logical sense. From what I'm hearing everything is leaning this way for Dalvin Cook in Week 6, meaning Alexander Mattison would get the nod in his place. Would give Cook two weeks to recover ahead of Green Bay in Week 8. (Courtney Cronin on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears Cook's groin injury is minor but it won't be a surprise if the Viking hold him out in Week 6 considering they have a bye in Week 7. Alexander Mattison would get the start and be an immediate RB1 against the Falcons soft defense. Mike Boone would play in a backup role


Injury Dalvin Cook likely has minor groin injury
Injured early in the second half of Week 5 loss

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer on Dalvin Cook's MRI today. "It went pretty well so we'll see how he does this week." (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It beats the alternative, but it's safe to assume Cook will be questionable at best for Week 6 against the Falcons. Fantasy owners would love nothing more than getting to see Cook operate against a defense that gets destroyed almost annually by running backs in the passing game and is doing so again in 2020. With Minnesota looking at a Week 7 bye, Alexander Mattison should be expected to get the start and would have RB1 upside if Cook sits.
