Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Alexander Mattison should receive most of the work at running back with Cook out and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (personal) left the team due to a family emergency Tuesday, Dec. 29, and will be unavailable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Alexander Mattison will have to clear concussion protocols, but he should be picked up in all formats. Expect him with some Ameer Abdullah mixed in. Mattison would be an RB2 against the Detroit Lions.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 73 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 12 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Cook failed to rush for 100 yards for the first time in four games but extended his touchdown streak to three games. He is one of the better running backs in the NFL when healthy and should be a must-start option next week.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 24 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and caught all five of his targets for 27 yards in a 33-27 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 15.
Huddle Up: The workhorse back went over 100 yards for the third straight game and eighth time this season, and Cook has topped 60 rushing yards in every game since the opener. Even with a tough New Orleans defense looming in Week 16, Cook has the potential to a carry a fantasy lineup.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two grabs for eight yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Cook visited the end zone for the first time since Week 11 against the Cowboys, which was good news. He also didn't fumble for a second straight game after some buttery finger in a three-game stretch in November. He remains an obvious fantasy must-start heading into Week 15 against the Chicago Bears.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 32 times for 120 yards in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars while adding six receptions for 59 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: It was Cook's sixth 100-yard game, and his 179 scrimmage yards were his most since Week 9 against the Detroit Lions when he had a season-best 252 total yards. The fantasy stud will look to re-discover the end zone in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (ankle) is practicing Friday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Cook got in limited work Wednesday and Thursday, and we'll have to see if he was able to ramp things up at all Friday. Regardless, it's a good sign that Cook was at least out there all week and is in line for a RB1 smash spot against the visiting Jaguars on Sunday, barring any setbacks.
