Dalvin Cook: Vikings receive trade offer for veteran RB

According to Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News, the Minnesota Vikings have received a trade offer for RB Dalvin Cook. Cook is also reportedly uninterested in taking a pay cut.

Fantasy Impact

Cook had his fourth straight season rushing for at least 1,000 yards, putting up 1,468 yards from scrimmage with 10 total touchdowns. His contract takes a cap hit of roughly $11 million, $12 million and $13 million over the next three seasons, respectively. With WR Justin Jefferson in line for a pay day soon, it’s possible Cook’s contract may have to be dealt with by the Vikings’ brass.

Dalvin Cook struggles in Week 17 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed the ball nine times for 27 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

It was a rough outing for Cook on Sunday. He totaled under 50 yards on the day, and his efficiency was also sub-par at best. He's had his moments this year, but it's overall been pretty disappointing for fantasy managers. The fantasy season is over for most managers, but he will remain a low end RB2 for any leagues that play in Week 18.

Dalvin Cook fails to find end zone in Week 16

Dalvin Cook rushed 14 times for 64 yards and caught three passes for 13 yards during Minnesota's 27-24 win over New York in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Cook came through with important runs during the game but not the kind that fantasy managers notice. He does have a good matchup in Week 17 against a Packers defense that has struggled against the run all year. He can be considered a QB1 for that matchup.

Dalvin Cook tallies 190 all-purpose yards in Week 15 win

Dalvin Cook rushed 17 times for 95 yards and caught four passes for 95 yards, including a 64-yard TD that completed the largest comeback in NFL history. Minnesota would go on to win 39-36 over Indianapolis.

Fantasy Impact

Cook found his stride in the second half against the Indy defense. He was targeted four times in the passing game as well. In Week 16, the Vikings go up against the Giants and their 31st-ranked rush defense. Cook will be an RB1 for that matchup.

Dalvin Cook scores TD in Week 14 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed 15 times for only 23 yards, scored a TD, caught one pass for 13 yards, and fumbled in the red zone during Minnesota's 34-23 loss to Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

Even the touchdown couldn't save Cook's fantasy day, as he ended with only 8.1 half-PPR points. Next week, he faces the Colts' rush defense, which is middle-of-the-pack in DVOA. He should be considered an RB2 with an RB1 upside for this matchup.
