Coordinator change could mean more consistent touches, he is needed to help offense establish more balanceScattershot Winston can hurt his outlook again in tough matchup
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.Evans has received as many targets as Chris Godwin (20) over the last three games, and both of them trail Adam Humphries (23). The decaying volume is particularly troubling entering a matchup against the Ravens, who leads the NFL in opposing completion percentage (58.8) and yards per pass attempt (6.2). They haven't allowed a receiver to score in the last three games, a stretch including matchups at Atlanta and Kansas City. Those expecting a WR1 performance from Evans will likely leave Week 15 disappointed, but nobody is saying to bench a guy averaging 92.8 yards per contest.
Derek Lofland

Miami is just 26th against fantasy running backs, Cook should be a back-end RB1 this week. Baltimore is 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, Evans is a low-upside WR2 in a very tough matchup on the road.
