Dalvin Cook (family emergency) unavailable to play Week 17

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook had to return to his hometown Miami, FL to handle a family emergency and won’t play in Week 17.

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.

Dalvin Cook scores in Week 16 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed 15 times for 73 yards and a TD and added two receptions for 12 yards in the Vikings' 52-33 loss to the Saints on Christmas.

Fantasy Impact

Minnesota fell behind big and abandoned the run game, as Kirk Cousins threw an unusually-high 41 passes. Cook managed to score for fantasy managers, but it certainly wasn't a big game to which they've been accustomed. He'll look to finish the season on a high note when Minnesota faces Detroit in Week 17.

Dalvin Cook's 159 yards not enough in Week 15 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed 24 times for 132 yards and a TD and brought in all five of his targets for 27 yards in the Vikings’ 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cook had another monster performance in Week 15, though it wasn't enough for Minnesota to get the win. Cook has been unstoppable all season, and even in a tough matchup with New Orleans in Week 16, he'll be a locked-in RB1.

Dalvin Cook tops 100 yards in Week 14 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 102 yards and a TD and brought in two of four targets for eight yards in the Vikings’ 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cook was Minnesota’s lone bright spot, as he eclipsed 100 yards rushing against a stout Bucs’ front line. He’s about as safe an RB1 play as they come each and every week, and he’ll be an obvious top-10 play against Chicago in Week 15.

Dalvin Cook rumbles for 179 yards in Week 13 win

Dalvin Cook rushed 32 times for 120 yards and caught six of nine targets for 59 yards in the Vikings’ 27-24 OT win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cook finished with another huge yardage total, though he had to earn every yard with his 32 carries. He added six receptions to his massive workload as he touched the ball nearly 40 times. Cook is a locked-in top-5 back, though he'll have his work cut out for him in Week 14 against Tampa Bay.
