Dalvin Cook officially out for season

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told the press running back Dalvin Cook (ACL) is officially out for the remainder of the 2017 season with a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Cook will undergo a surgery to repair his torn ACL suffered in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Lions. As a result, he will miss the remainder of the year. In his absence, expect Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray to handle the Vikings' running back duties moving forward with the latter likely to be featured as the RB1.

Dalvin Cook believed to have ACL tear

Dalvin Cook is believed to have a full ACL tear. Vikings' Head Coach, Mike Zimmer, shared the same concern during his post-game press conference. MRI results should be available in the next couple of days.

Fantasy Impact

This is horrible news for the rookie, who was having a great game at the time, as he posted 13 carries for 66 yards and a TD, and added a catch for eight yards. Here's hoping Dalvin has a quick recovery. Latavius Murry will likely slide into the Vikings' lead RB spot for the rest of the season.

Dalvin Cook out for game with non-contact knee injury

Dalvin Cook left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with a non-contact knee injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Fantasy Impact

Injuries are never good, and going down with a non-contact knee injury is just about the worst case scenario for a player. More information will become available in the coming days, but for now, know that Cook is out for the game and his knee injury could very well be a serious one that sidelines him for an extended period of time.

Dalvin Cook comes through big in Week 3

Dalvin Cook rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown, and also had five catches for 72 yards against the Buccaneers in the Vikings' Week 3 win.

Fantasy Impact

Cook was a workhorse back in this game, with 32 touches, as the Vikings used the run effectively to establish the pass. Never underestimate a starting running back on a team that is favored and playing at home. That, and the Buccaneers playing with a gimpy Gerald McCoy. There will be ups and downs this year for Cook, but because of the volume of touches the Vikings have been comfortable giving him, Cook makes for a rock-solid RB2 with RB1-upside all season long. Next week the Vikings host Detroit.

Dalvin Cook held in check in Week 2

Dalvin Cook rushed 12 times for 64 yards, and had two catches on three targets for no yards in Week 2 against a swarming Pittsburgh defense.

Fantasy Impact

Cook had one explosive 25-yard run that appeared to result in a TD, but instead was called down inches short of the end zone. C.J. Ham then took the next hand-off to vulture the score. With a backup quarterback playing the entire game, this result is to be expected. Things should improve when Sam Bradford returns to the lineup, but for now, Cook should be viewed as a low-end RB2 as a volume play dependent on matchup.
