FantasyPros
To know that Davante finished as the No. 3 wide receiver in fantasy football despite Aaron Rodgers throwing just 25 touchdowns, it should let you know how high his ceiling actually is. It wasn't just one game, either. It took 14.9 PPR points on average to be a top-24 receiver in 2018, and Adams is the only receiver in the NFL who hit that number in every single one of his gamesWe've yet to see Cook stay healthy throughout an NFL season, but that's not stopping drafters from taking him with a pick inside the first two rounds. The Vikings are a high-powered offense who upgraded their offensive line this offseason, so the appeal is justified. The Vikings did draft Alexander Mattison in the third-round, so they're obviously concerned about the depth behind Cook, but he's the starter as long as he's healthy
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Adams is force-fed targets as much as anyone and has a beautiful new system that should only help him.The Vikings want to run the ball and a healthy Cook is dynamic. He's worth a dice roll in late round one or early round 2
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
If Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, there's almost no chance Adams finishes outside the top six or seven receivers in fantasy. He's Rodgers' favorite target, he has elite skills, and he's the main focus of the Packers' passing attack. We don't know what Matt LaFleur's offense will look like, but it doesn't matter. Adams should be behind DeAndre Hopkins, but probably no other receivers.Cook oozes talent and could easily be a top-five fantasy back if he were in the right situation. And there are positives for him playing in Minnesota, such as the Vikings' focus on the run in the second half last year which should likely continue this season. But Alexander Mattison and Mike Boone remain and will likely cut into Cook's workload. Add to this that he has played just 15 games over his first two seasons because of injuries and there are plenty of downsides to consider. Still, Cook makes an RB1, without question, and so long as he is healthy, he should deliver quality fantasy production.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Adams was so ridiculously consistent last season it is a little mind blowing. Had a TD in 11 of 15 games and in the games he did not have a TD he went 8/81, 5/133, 10/166 and 8/119. HE NEVER SCORED SINGLE DIGITS. If you take his worst fantasy game of the season and multiply it by 16, HE WOULD STILL HAVE BEEN WR14.Cook, just like Mixon, is a late second round pick being drafted at the end of the first/early second. He played 4 games his rookie season and 11 games last season, so he is clearly extremely injury prone. He had one game ALL of last season with over 16 carries.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Combined 35 receiving TDs over past 3 seasons trails only Antonio Brown (36) - blossomed in PPR in '18, finishing 2nd in targets (169) and setting career high with 111 catches (75 was previous best)If you tell me Cook will play 16 games, he's in my Top 10 RBs. I'm ranking him with the idea that a couple/few DNPs are a real possibility
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
 There isn't any questioning his workload, talent & upside, and that is exactly why he's ranked where his is. Just keep in mind, he hasn't been able to stay healthy and has had similar rankings / ADP the past two seasons, where he has failed to return that value.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
His worst game last season was 8/81/0. Talk about consistency.Cook's last four games last season extrapolated over an entire 16 game season would result in a rushing line of 1,212 and 8TDs with a receiving line of 444 rushing yards and 4 TDs. Kubiak is bringing in an outside zone running scheme and Cook has had his most success in his young career in that scheme.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Adams finished behind Hopkins and Tyreek in fantasy points last year but he was #1 in points per game despite his QB playing on one leg. Adams has now been a WR1 for three straight seasons thanks to double-digit touchdowns every year. He should be gone before the 1/2 turn in most drafts.Cook may have finished with fewer than 1,000 yards in a disappointing season last year but over the final four weeks when he appeared to finally be 100%, the Vikings gave him 72 touches. Keep in mind, he showed the ability to handle a full workload in 2017 prior to his injury with 71 touches in just 3 games so we may be looking at this year's breakout star.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Adams now enters his 6th season in the NFL finally getting the respect his numbers deserve. The last three seasons, Adams has put up a total of 35 touchdowns. LaFluer's offense concerns me, but when you have one of the greatest QB's to ever play the game throwing you the ball, it can overcome those concerns...Adams is a lock for another 10 TD's this year and you should feel confident having him as your team's WR1. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I'll always admit when I'm wrong on a player. I didn't think Adams was this good. But he proved last season that he's an elite WR and when you pair someone of his talent level with Aaron Rodgers…then you have someone worthy of a first round pick in fantasy. Adams finished last season with 111/1389/13...through 15 weeks! He's that rare receiver that has a chance to lead the league in receptions and TD's. He does drop the ball more than we would like, but I really don't care about that stat for fantasy. All I look for is volume, and he's got just as much as anyone. He's 3rd in my projections with 158 targets, and we know that the red zone role is going to be massive. I have no problem if you want to take Hopkins over Adams. The projections, floor and upside are all extremely close. For me, the tie breaker comes down to their QB's...and Adams gets to catch balls from Aaron Rodgers.Dalvin Cook has played in just 15 games over his first two seasons, so durability is absolutely a concern. Sports injury predictor has him as an elevated injury risk, and I have to agree. He's suffered a shoulder tear, an ankle sprain, another shoulder tear, a torn ACL, and two pulled hamstrings. When he's been on the field he's been electric. Cook has a career 4.7 YPC, including 3 yards per carry after contact last season. He's also shown his receiving upside with 3 or more receptions in 73% of his career games. While injuries are a concern, the Vikings improved their offensive line by drafting Garrett Bradbury in the first round. He's going to help out a ton, and should make them a better run blocking unit than they were last season. Cook is going to see massive volume as long as he can stay healthy. He's certainly a risky early round pick, but he's also one that could pay off big time.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Davante Adams scored at least 16.0 PPR Points in every game last season, it was the highest minimum score of a guy who played over 10 games in @StaggsNFL database which dates back to 2013. Eric Decker had the next highest minimum at 11.7 points in 2013. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Adams was one of the lone bright spots for a disappointing Green Bay Packers team and he should be an elite weapon again in 2019 playing with QB Aaron Rodgers.The Vikings had a horrible run / pass ratio that they seemed to correct toward the end of the season. Cook will be a year removed from his ACL tear and he should be a low-end RB1. It will also help that RB Latavius Murray is in New Orleans and he will not be taking away as many carries from Cook this year.
