Fantasy Impact:

Week 17 is a meaningless game for the Vikings, so Cook has been given the okay to be away from the team this week. The 25-year-old finishes the regular season with 1,557 rushing yards and 17 total touchdowns in 14 games. It was a heroic performance for fantasy managers who used their first-round pick on him. Cook will once again be a top-five pick in 2021 drafts. Expect Alexander Mattison (concussion) to be given a bigger workload if he can get cleared for Sunday's game against the Lions.
