He went down with what looked like a serious injury last week, but after missing a handful of plays, he returned. It's something to monitor as the week goes on, but for now, we'll assume he's good to go. Here's an odd stat I found while researching this game: Cook has accounted for just 58.1 percent of the Vikings' red zone rushing attempts. That's just the ninth-highest mark among running backs. We watched Nick Chubb rack up 144 yards on the ground against this Jaguars defense last week, which doesn't quite hit the 150-yard plateau that Cook has established this year. Fun fact: Cook has three 150-yard rushing games this year, while the rest of the NFL has seven of them. He's now broken 50 tackles on the ground, which is the most in the NFL, and that's despite missing some time. Even though the Jaguars have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, running backs have been getting theirs as well, averaging the fifth-most points per game. The Jaguars opponents run the ball 46.1 percent of the time bodes well for Cook, as the Vikings run the ball 48.5 percent of the time. The Vikings average 30.8 running back touches per game while the Jaguars see 29.9 running back touches per game. We could be looking at another 25-touch game for Cook against the team that allows the sixth-most fantasy points per weighted opportunity. Oddsmakers have opened this game with a 30.5-point team-implied total, which bodes well for all Vikings players, especially Cook. He's a smash-play in both redraft and DFS cash games, as he's now seen 13 targets over the last three weeks, raising that floor you need when paying top-dollar.Despite John Brown being out of the lineup, as well as the Chargers top cornerback Casey Hayward, Diggs finished with just seven catches for 39 yards in Week 12. It was just the second time all year where Diggs has finished outside the top-36 wide receivers, so we can't panic. It could be a coincidence, but both times he's finished outside of that range have been when Brown's been out of the lineup. The Bills are not going to be able to run the ball on the 49ers, so we should be expecting double-digit targets for Diggs in this contest. Production can be had in this matchup. It should be noted that the 49ers did get Richard Sherman back last week, which certainly doesn't hurt their defense. Diggs plays on both sides, though he will see Sherman the most. We don't have a big sample of targets against Sherman this year, though he did appear to be winding down at the end of last year. The 49ers have done a good job despite all the injuries they've dealt with, as the 7.84 yards per target they've allowed to receivers ranks as the 12th-lowest number in the league. But again, if Diggs gets those targets, he's going to perform just like the rest of those wide receivers did.

There is talk that Cook is banged up and that his touches could be scaled back, but he really would only need 12-15 touches against Jacksonville's 28th ranked running back defense to be an elite RB1.Diggs had his worst fantasy game of the season with just seven points. Seeing he has finished with double-digit points in 9 of his 11 games this year, I would expect him to rebound against a 49ers D that is 10th against fantasy wide receivers.

Cook appears to be a little bit banged up, but it sounds like his status for Week 13 isn't in question. If he plays, Cook's a top-3 start. Even with the potential injury concerns, this is a matchup that you start your opposing RBs against.
