When the Vikings signed Latavius Murray, most thought they were likely done addressing the position. But once they signed him, he had foot surgery, leading the Vikings to trade up and draft Cook. Playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in football will be tough for anyone, but look for them to give Cook every opportunity to win the starting job, and I suspect he will.

Dalvin Cook to see an expanded role in 2017?

Minnesota Vikings beat writer Ben Goessling believes rookie running back Dalvin Cook will "get a chance to play a big role right away."

Fantasy Impact

Cook will compete with Latavius Murray this offseason to see who will emerge as the Vikings' starting running back -- with the rookie being viewed as the early favorite to land the job. Because of Cook's versatility as a rusher and a receiver out of the backfield, he should receive plenty of opportunities to utilize his all-around skill set. Expect Cook to garner the bulk of the touches on early downs with Murray being sprinkled in as Minnesota's short yardage/ goal line back. Cook should be the second rookie running back targeted in upcoming fantasy drafts ahead of Christian McCaffrey and behind Leonard Fournette.
