Summary

Dalvin Cook's young career has been plagued by injuries as he played in 15 total games his first two seasons but finally got on track in 2019 with a 14 game season which lead to RB5 overall numbers in 1,135 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns, 53 receptions, and 519 receiving yards. Cook provided the Vikings with some power in the running game, helping them to be no longer solely dependent on the Kirk Cousins and the passing game. Now with Stefon Diggs leaving town, the Vikings could continue to rely heavily on the running game and if Cook can stay healthy he will be be at the top of the running back talent in the league and a top five fantasy asset. UPDATE: A representative of Cook has said he will holdout through "camp and beyond" if he doesn't get a "reasonable" extension. (June 12)
