Cook was very solid in Week 6 with 29 carries for 140 yards, two receptions for three yards, and a touchdown. Coming off his bye week, he should be an elite RB1 against a Cowboys D that is 12th against fantasy running backs.Cooper was the 22nd ranked fantasy wide receiver from Week 4 to Week 6, he is a low-end WR2 against a Vikings D that is 16th against fantasy wide receivers.
