Summary

With Latavius Murray now out of town the Vikings who were once a running back by committee type of team are all of a sudden a lead back type of team. Dalvin Cook looks to benefit the most in Minnesota this season. Cook missed five games in 2018 after missing 12 the year before with a torn ACL. Through the 11 games he did play in he averaged 4.6 yards per carry with 615 and a pair of touchdowns on the ground. He also contributed in the passing game with 40 receptions for 305 yards and two more touchdowns. In his short career, he has looked explosive while on the field and if he can stay healthy for a full season the entire Vikings offense could improve in both the rushing and passing games. (May 3)
