    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Set to miss Week 17

    Dalvin Cook won't be available for Sunday's game against the Lions after he returned home to Miami due to a family emergency, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.The Minnesota Vikings have yet to officially confirm that Cook will sit out, but at this stage, Alexander Mattison -- if cleared to return from a concussion -- looks set to lead Minnesota's backfield Week 17. If that's the case, Cook will wrap up a spectacular fourth NBA season with 1,557 rushing yards, 361 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns over 14 games.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Limited by game script in loss

    Dalvin Cook rushed 15 times for 73 yards and a touchdown and secured both targets for 12 yards in the Minnesota Vikings' 52-33 loss to the Saints on Friday. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by the offense.The Vikings were constantly in trail mode throughout the afternoon, and while the deficit wasn't always untenable, it was enough to eventually force the Vikings to go more pass heavy than ideal. Cook still churned out an efficient performance against yet another tough run defense after having averaged 5.1 yards per rush against the Buccaneers and Bears the previous two games. The third-year pro was also significantly outshined by Saints counterpart Alvin Kamara, who tied an NFL record with six touchdowns. Cook now boasts a career-high 1,557 rush yards and 16 rushing touchdowns on the season, marks he'll look to build on in Minnesota's regular-season finale against the vulnerable Lions in Week 17.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Rare success versus Bears

    Dalvin Cook rushed 24 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and secured all five targets for 27 yards in the Minnesota Vikings' 33-27 loss to the Bears on Sunday.Facing a defense that had stymied him to the tune of a season-low 3.2 yards per carry the first time he saw them in 2020, Cook frequently ran uninhibited throughout the afternoon despite a game-long run of 20 yards. He had just overcome another difficult matchup Week 14 against the Buccaneers' typically impenetrable run defense, so Sunday was merely another example of his transcendent talent. Cook now has four 100-yard efforts in his last five games alone, particularly timely contributions for fantasy managers at the most critical time of year. The fourth-year pro will look to keep up his hot streak while taking on another challenging task in the form of the Saints on Christmas Day.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Eclipses century mark in loss

    Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 102 yards and a touchdown and secured two of four targets for eight yards in the Minnesota Vikings' 26-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.Cook's long run of the day went for a modest 14 yards, but he continued to chip away with multiple productive carries against one of the stingiest run defenses in the league to notch his seventh 100-yard effort of the campaign, including his second straight. The fourth-year pro's workload was modest compared to his season-high 32-carry tally from Week 13 versus the Jaguars, as game script limited his opportunities late. Nevertheless, Cook delivered for managers in the fantasy playoffs, and he'll look to keep it going in a Week 15 battle versus the Bears.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Piles up yardage on 38 touches

    Dalvin Cook rushed 32 times for 120 yards and caught six of nine targets for another 59 in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Jaguars.Cook was bottled up on the ground for much of the day and finished with fewer than 4.0 yards per carry for the third time in four games after topping that mark in six of his first seven this season. Despite that limited effectiveness, Cook reached triple digits in rushing yards for the sixth time, as his season high in carries included eight in overtime with Minnesota plowing deep into Jacksonville territory before winning it with a short field goal. Cook's ability to contribute as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield should keep him a mainstay in lineups despite a Week 14 matchup with a stout Buccaneers front that's allowing just 74.2 rushing yards per game.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: All systems go for Week 13

    Dalvin Cook (ankle) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.The Minnesota Vikings capped Cook's reps in their first two practices of the week, but that was mainly for maintenance purposes after he had suffered a minor ankle tweak in last week's win over the Panthers. After allowing him to return to full activity Friday, Cook completed the session no worse for the wear, eliminating any concern about his status heading into the weekend. The 25-year-old once again should be in store for a bell-cow role Sunday, taking on a Jaguars defense that has allowed 4.5 yards per carry and 14 rushing touchdowns in 11 games this season.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Reps capped in practice again

    Dalvin Cook (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.Though Cook's reps were capped for the second day in a row, the fact that he has been able to log some activity in both of the Minnesota Vikings' Week 13 practices seemingly puts him on a path to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Assuming Cook attains clearance for the weekend, he'll likely be in store for another 20-plus-touch outing versus a Jacksonville defense that has surrendered 136.2 yards per game on the ground this season, the fourth-worst mark in the NFL.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Practices in limited capacity

    Dalvin Cook (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday.Cook missed a brief spell with an ankle injury this past Sunday against the Panthers, but he still notched 82 yards from scrimmage on 22 touches. While the performance was a modest one for the fourth-year running back, he told Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Wednesday that he's "feeling good" and "ready to roll" ahead of this weekend's matchup with the Jaguars. Clearly, the Minnesota Vikings decided to cap Cook's reps to begin Week 13 prep, but he'll have two more chances to prove his health before Sunday arrives.

    Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Declares self ready for Week 13

    Dalvin Cook, who tweaked his ankle during the Minnesota Vikings' Week 12 win over the Panthers, said he's "feeling good" and is "ready to roll" in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.Minnesota could choose to limit Cook's reps in practice this week while he manages the injury, but at this stage, he looks on track to start and see plenty of volume versus Jacksonville. Ten games into his 2020 campaign, Cook is averaging 21.9 carries and 113 rushing yards per contest while scoring 14 times and adding 29 catches for 255 yards.
