Week 14: at Seattle Seahawks

All RB vs SEA

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Dalvin Cook got off to a hot start last week with 63 rushing yards on just five carries in the first half, but game script got the better of him as he saw just nine carries for the game. This marks twice in the past three weeks that the Vikings have abandoned the run almost entirely to focus on their passing game while playing catch-up. Cook is showing signs that he is healthy and able to make explosive plays, but he simply has not been afforded a consistent, reliable workload since returning from injury. Latavius Murray continues to be worked in here, as he beat out Cook for carries in Week 12 and saw four carries in last week's game despite playing only 20 percent of the snaps compared to the 77 percent from Cook. The Vikings also continue to see an inconsistent level of play from their offensive line that has not made it easy on these Vikings running backs to find space. The Seahawks middling run defense was without linebacker K.J Wright again last week, but it did not matter as both Bobby Wagner and their interior defensive line stepped up to the plate to deliver a great game for what has been a struggling unit as of late. Wagner was all over the field to stuff runs, sack the quarterback, and even snag an interception returned for a touchdown. He is playing on an elite level and remains the anchor of this entire defense. The interior linemen have struggled at times for the Seahawks, but they had a great game last week against a talented 49ers offensive line. For context, however, the 49ers had to turn to Jeff Wilson Jr after Matt Breida left the game against the Seahawks last week. Leading into last week, the Seahawks had given up three straight games of over 100 rushing yards and a touchdown to lead backs. While the Vikings offensive line is not a unit to be afraid of, Dalvin Cook is a much more talented runner closer to the level of running backs that have performed well against the Seahawks all season long.
