Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 PPR Rankings

James Cook Note

Cook has been the Bills' workhorse with 59% of the snaps each week, averaging 18.5 touches and 111 total yards as the RB12 in fantasy. Cook is the RB12 in fantasy despite scoring zero touchdowns. Let that sink in. Yes, I know the Bills have had five running attempts inside the five-yard line, and zero have gone Cook's direction. The fact is that he will not continue to score zero touchdowns this season. When he does start breaking some big plays into the end zone we're talking about a possible top-six fantasy back. Cook has the tenth-lowest stuff rate, the 11th-highest missed tackles forced per attempt, and the 11th-highest yards after contact per attempt. Washington has been another mixed-bag run defense. They have the sixth-lowest stuff rate and the second-highest rate of runs of five or more yards allowed, but they also have the fifth-lowest missed tackles allowed per attempt and the 11th-lowest yards per carry allowed to gap runs (Cook 86% gap). Don't expect Cook to get much going through the air, as Washington allowed the 11th-lowest yards per reception to backs last season. Week 3 Positional Value: RB1
