Dalvin Cook piles up 160 yards, TD in Week 11 loss

Dalvin Cook rushed 27 times for 115 yards and a TD and brought in all five of his targets for 45 yards in the Vikings’ 31-28 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Another day, another 160 yards and a score. Cook has made performances like this look mundane, as he adds yet another big game to his season resume. He’s now over 1,000 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns for the season with six games remaining. Carolina’s soft run defense in Week 12 could be yet another blowup spot for fantasy’s top RB.

Dalvin Cook totals 112 yards, held out of end zone

Dalvin Cook rushed 20 times for 96 yards and caught all four of his targets for 16 yards in the Vikings’ 19-13 win over the Bears on MNF.

Fantasy Impact

Cook failed to score for the first time all season, but it wasn't surprising to see him come back down to earth against the Bears' solid defensive front. Cook still managed 112 yards on the day, and he'll look to get back to the end zone against a soft Dallas defense in Week 11.

Dalvin Cook tames Lions with second straight 200-yard outing

Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 206 yards and two TDs, adding two receptions for 46 yards in the Vikings’ 34-20 victory over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Even at the risk of wearing out the pun, it’s appropriate to point out that Dalvin did indeed cook for a second straight week. Across his last two outings, the FSU product has totaled 432 scrimmage yards and six total touchdowns. He’s emerged as perhaps the best back in all of fantasy football, and even next week’s more challenging matchup against the Bears is unlikely to slow him down.

Dalvin Cook erupts for 200 yards, quartet of TDs

Dalvin Cook rushed 30 times for 163 yards and three TDs, adding two receptions for 63 yards and an additional TD in the Vikings’ 28-22 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cook put together one of the best running back performances of the season in this one, compiling 226 scrimmage yards and four total touchdowns. On a per-game basis, he’s been the best fantasy running back in 2020, and he’ll be a no-brainer top-5 play in Week 9 against the Lions.

Dalvin Cook (groin) officially active for Week 8

RB Dalvin Cook (groin) is active and will play Sunday's Week 8 contest against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Cook is active and expected to be a full go for Sunday's game against the Packers. He missed Week 6's loss (the Vikings had a bye Week 7) to the Falcons due to a groin injury. The Vikings' star RB has logged 92 carries for 489 rushing yards along with 12 receptions for 64 receiving yards and seven touchdowns over five games this season. Cook is surefire RB1 and currently fourth among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
