Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook started only four regular season games as a rookie last season before tearing his ACL. In that span, he had 354 rushing yards, 90 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, averaging 13.6 standard-league fantasy points per game.
This season, Cook appears to be healthy and could be ready for a breakout year, but he is also surrounded by new faces in the Vikings' offense. How will having a new quarterback in Kirk Cousins and a new offensive coordinator in John DeFilippo impact Cook's role in the offense, and what kind of fantasy potential does he offer in point-per-reception (PPR) leagues with these changes?
Kirk Cousins and John DeFilippo
Minnesota's offense could look drastically different from what we saw last season.
DeFilippo, the former quarterback coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, has expressed a desire to cater his offensive strategy towards his quarterback’s strengths, as indicated by his approach when Nick Foles stepped into the starting lineup after Carson Wentz went down last year.
