Dalvin Cook came back to Earth a little bit last week, but don’t let the one game fool you, he’s still the best running back there is when it comes to fantasy football this season. This week, he has the chance to get back to producing big numbers against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings RB Dalvin Cook
Cook only had 96 rushing yards last week, despite getting 30 carries, which matched a season high. He also had 16 yards on four catches. Those numbers were okay, but a bit of a letdown after he rushed for 206 yards and a score the week before and had four touchdowns and 226 total yards the week before that.
Dallas did a good job taking away the Steelers’ run game in their last outing, with a little help from the Steelers, but it was just Week 7 when Antonio Gibson of Washington gashed them for 128 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys have given up eight rushing scores to opposing running backs this season. Cook should feast in this one.
