Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Much maligned for poor measurables at the combine, Cook flashed early and often as a rookie, before being cut down in early October with a torn ACL. By all accounts he's back and ready to go for training camp, which lands him firmly inside the top ten fantasy running backs in all formats. In his inaugural season Cook was well on his way to becoming the Vikings bell cow back, averaging better than 20 touches and more than 100 yards per game before going down in Week 4. It was a pace that would have had him threatening the top five in fantasy scoring among running backs had he stayed healthy. And concerns about his health should be alleviated a bit by the Vikings willingness to let Jerick McKinnon go this offseason. Latavius Murray still lurks, but at this point he seems more like an insurance policy than anything else. With one of the best defenses in the NFL, newly signed Kirk Cousins under center, and a bevy of offensive talent in the receiving game, Cook is well positioned to post fantastic numbers over the next few seasons if he stays healthy.

2018 Season Outlook

By all accounts Cook is healthy, but if the Vikings choose to throttle back his early workload as he returns from the ACL tear it could cut into his 2018 production. Still, he's the superior talent in the Minnesota backfield, and this is a team with Super Bowl aspirations.
