Vikings | Dalvin Cook impressing in passing game

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 12:17:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings rookie RB Dalvin Cook has impressed the team with his receiving skills throughout the spring and during training camp. "(Cook's work in the passing game has) been tremendous throughout (training) camp, and I think it's something that we noticed pretty early on during (spring drills). He continued to show it throughout the camp, and I think he's going to be a valuable asset, not only in the run game, but I think we're going to be able to utilize him in the pass game," quarterback Sam Bradford said.

Fantasy Tip: Cook was bottled up as a runner in his preseason debut Thursday (five carries, 13 yards), but his four catches for 30 yards bodes in just over a quarter of work is a tangible sign Minnesota likes what he can do as a receiver. He is an incredibly explosive rusher to boot, so he should have no problem breaking off a few long runs during the season even if his line only shows a modest improvement over last year. Cook should be viewed as a high-end RB2 in all formats.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook sees heavy workload in NFL debut

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 17:04:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings rookie RB Dalvin Cook rushed five times for 13 yards and finished with four catches for 30 yards before calling it a day in the team's preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Cook was featured as Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon were held out, and he did nothing to disappoint, even if the rushing numbers are on the low end. The Vikings have been consistent in saying they want a committee backfield, but Cook could potentially turn himself into a feature back with a strong preseason. Cook is a value pick at his current fourth-round ADP and possesses RB1 upside if he can run away with the job.

Vikings | Latavius Murray not traveling

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 20:48:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Latavius Murray (ankle) was limited during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8, and said he is not traveling with the team for their preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10. He said he is not sure if he will play in the second preseason game but knows he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Murray just started practicing this week, so it is not known when he will be able to play in a game. He is expected to share playing time with Dalvin Cook this season and probably will be used mostly as a ball carrier. Murray could be used as a No. 3 running back or flex option this season.

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell unable to return

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 19:03:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell (leg) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 7, and has missed five straight practices.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see when Treadwell will be able to return to practice. Treadwell is expected to have a bigger role in the offense this season but probably will be behind several other pass catchers in terms of targets. Treadwell probably can be a No. 5 receiver for owners in most leagues if healthy.
