2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The sample size was small, but Dalvin Cook showed flashes of special ability during his first year with the Vikings until a torn ACL ended his season. His 14.1 fantasy points-per-game were good enough to put him in the top-10 at his position had he stayed healthy and consistent. In his wake Latavius Murray picked up the slack on the ground, punching it into the endzone 8 times and rushing for 800+ yards. Oddly enough it was Murray's slow return from ankle surgery that gave Cook the chance to shine early in the year. Although there isn't quite a similar parallel this season, (as Cook has the clear talent edge over Murray), drafting Cook as your RB1 is going to come with plenty of risk.

Sure Cook did show dual threat capability in the four games he played, catching 11 passes of almost 100 yards, but knee injuries are always scary despite modern medicine, and one of Cook's red flags coming out of college was the injury prone label. Thankfully his rehab has gone great, and he was cleared for team drills in early June. If he gets the full go at the start of camp and doesn't suffer setbacks, I'd be comfortable leaning on Cook as an RB1 in both standard and PPR leagues as he's going to catch a ton of passes with Jerick McKinnon's 51 receptions gone to San Francisco and Murray providing no threat in that area.

Injury Diggs not expected to play, Cook limited
Vikings have a bye in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 3, 11:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, listed as questionable with a rib injury, is not expected to play Sunday against the visiting Detroit Lions, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minnesota has its bye week upcoming, so Diggs will have two weeks to rest his injured ribs. A source also told Schefter that Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, questionable with a lingering hamstring injury, is expected to see the field but be on a pitch count of about 20 or so plays. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Diggs will miss this week with a rib injury leaving Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and tight end Kyle Rudolph as the main pass catchers for the Vikings. A 5-foot-10 slot receiver, Chad Bebe, has been called up from the practice squad. Cook won't be a fantasy option given his limited role.


Injury Cook, Diggs listed as questionable
Cook will be limited if he plays
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 2, 3:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs are both listed as questionable for the Minnesota Vikings' Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions. Diggs sustained an injury to his ribs in the second quarter of a 30-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The wide receiver did not practice Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Cook's participation in practice Friday gives the Vikings hope that he will be able to play against the Lions. Sources indicated that Cook will go through an on-field workout prior to inactives before determining whether he can play. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Vikings handling of Cook is questionable at best given they have a bye next week. If he does play, he's expected to be on a pitch count. He won't be a recommended fantasy play even if he is active on Sunday. Diggs owners should be getting plan B in place in case he is ruled inactive on Sunday.


Injury Stefon Diggs absent Wednesday
Core injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 31, 1:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook is doing at least some work in practice today. No Stefon Diggs, who appeared to sustain a core injury on Sunday night. Roc Thomas and Anthony Barr, who've both had hamstring injuries, are sitting out on Wednesday. (Ben Goessling on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The severity of Diggs' injury is unknown at the moment. Is here were to somehow miss Week 9, Laquon Treadwell might be a viable option. Stay tuned...
