Summary

Dalvin Cook only played in four games as a rookie due to tearing his ACL in his left knee. In those four games he looked explosive. He rushed for 354 yards and a pair of touchdowns to go along with 11 receptions for 90 yards receiving. Cook has passed the six-month mark in his rehab and looks to be on track for the start of Training Camp. He will likely be a limited participant in practices and in minicamp. The four game sample size is hard to gage just how good Cook can be but looking at his 4.78 yards per carry to start his career has to make you excited for the potential upside here. He will be playing behind a good offensive line and with Cousins under center now and receiving options lined up all over the field, the running game has potential to open up and Cook will be a big part of that balanced attack on offense.
