Despite missing four games over the last two years, Cook has still managed to rack up 3,572 total yards and 30 touchdowns. He's still yet to play 16 games in his four-year career, but when he's on the field, he's a surefire RB1. In each of the final 12 games he played in 2020, he touched the ball a minimum of 17 times, including 24-plus touches in nine of them. The craziest part about his numbers, though, is the fact that he has 97 receptions for 880 yards over the last two years, but just one receiving touchdown, so there's room for even more of a ceiling.

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.
