Coordinator change could mean more consistent touches, he is needed to help offense establish more balanceReduced snap counts a major concern
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Minnesota continues to lean heavily in favor of passing, but that has led Cook to catch 13 of 17 targets over the last two games. Averaging just 10.9 carries per contest, it's imperative his pass-catching involvement continues. The Dolphins, tied for 30th in rushing defense, at least present an interesting opportunity for the Vikings to establish the ground game at home after firing offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Despite not living up to his lofty draft cost, Cook makes a decent RB2 with upside waiting to be unleashed. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Miami is just 26th against fantasy running backs, Cook should be a back-end RB1 this week. White had a poor showing last week, but the Steelers have struggled to cover running backs receiving out of the backfield. White is a boom / bust flex option this week.
