I think a lot of people want to avoid Cook this year due to injury andthey just don’t trust him. But for this year, Cook should be an RB1 and I wouldn’t worry about him at his ADP. For starters, yes, Cook has injury risk. He’s had injuries all over the place throughout his career. And there’s a chance that he’ll get injured again. But I’m willing to grab his handcuff, Alexander Mattison. He’s going pretty late in drafts so it’s easy to take him. If you remember from last year, Latavius Murray put up very strong number when Cook was out, so if you grab Mattison there should be no worry and you should have a strong running back weekly. Obviously it’s not ideal to grab a injury prone player but in this case you know that he’s going to have a strong handcuff if he does go down. Cook is also two years removed from his ACL injury, so it shouldn’t affect him as much in this coming year. Like injuries wouldn’t be too major and as long as you grab Mattison you should be fine. Not only does Cook have a handcuff worth drafting him in case of injury, but he also has a lot of upside for a ton of reasons. First of all, the coaching staff. DeFillippo’s offense was pass heavy, and didn’t cater to Cook. This year the run game will be prioritized more and Cook will work in the shotgun formation more often, where he averaged 6.5 YPC. Not only will coaching benefit him, but the Vikings also made improvements to the offensive line. They focused on the line in the draft, as well making some improvements in free agency. The line was fairly weak last year, so it’s great to see these improvements. Cook has a more beneficial coaching staff to him, as well as an improved line to run behind, so he should be able to improve upon his 13.8 PPG average. He holds a ton of upside as he’s an explosive player that makes him worth the risk he carries in the early second round What do you think? Are you drafting Dalvin Cook this year?

Although The Minnesota Vikings are fine in cap Space right now, they will be struggling once again next year to make it work. - The Vikings are sitting at -$22M in Cap for the 2020 Season. Although this seems like a lot it could be just 2 moves the Vikings have to make to fix it. These possibilities are mostly on how these players perform in the 2019 Season with either a down year in 2018 or there Age becoming a factor. 1. Cut LT Riley Reiff- Free $8.8M/$4.4M Dead Cap 2. Cut DE Everson Griffen- Free $13.1M/$800K Dead Cap 3. Restructure/Cut DT Linval Joseph- Making $13.3M/$2.4M Dead Cap 4. Trade/Restructure Xavier Rhodes- Making $12.9/$4.8M Dead Cap
Ladies and gentlemen, our third selection in the Fantasy Football Throne: @athielen19 💯 — Voting Results... Adam Thielen: 87 AJ Green: 48 Amari Cooper: 23 Stefon Diggs: 9 Marlon Mack: 4 Julian Edelman: 1 Aaron Rodgers: 1 — Absolutely love this pick right here. After going with Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley in the first two rounds we locked up our RBs. Now we get a quality WR1 who also provides a nice safety blanket for our team which already has a ton of risk. Adam Thielen was the #8 WR in 2017 and the #7 WR in 2018. With Kirk Cousins now experienced in that system, Thielen’s value should only go up from here. Gordon, Gurley and Thielen is an unbelievable start to this draft.
