We go over the fantasy football outlook of Dalvin Cook ahead of the Vikings Week 13 matchup against the Jaguars.

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook didn’t have his best game of the season last weekend, but fantasy managers should be rushing to keep him in their lineups ahead of his matchup on Sunday in Week 13.

Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings RB Dalvin Cook

In Cook’s last game, the Carolina Panthers held him to 61 yards on 18 carries, and Cook caught all four targets that went his way for 21 yards in the Vikings’ victory. Kirk Cousins let go a season-high 45 passes, and Cook left the game with an ankle injury that appeared serious at first, but he returned to the field.

Cook was limited during practice throughout the week, but he will be active and ready to go on Sunday.

Cook and the Vikings will face the Jacksonville Jaguars at home on Sunday afternoon in a dream matchup for Cook’s fantasy owners. Jacksonville is allowing 136.2 yards on the ground per game, which ranks 29th in the NFL. The Jaguars are coming off a loss to the Browns in which Jacksonville gave up 206 rushing yards to Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Cook no matter what league you are in. He should be ranked as the No. 1 running back in football this weekend aside from maybe Derrick Henry.
