Expert Note
View More Notes

Previously averaging 10.9 carries per contest, Cook has handled 35 handoffs in two games since the Vikings fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. They need a win to advance into the postseason, so expect another hefty workload. In a week littered with uncertainty, he'd stand out as an elite option if not for facing the Bears, who limited him to 10 yards in Week 10. Only the Ravens have granted fewer fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, so there's certainly bust risk despite the game's importance. The promise of opportunity preserves his status as a low-end RB1 during a chaotic final weekend.

He also became a significant part of the passing game with 40 receptions for 305 yards and two TD receptions. Cook needs to stay healthy for a full season to realize his fantasy draft position next year.
