Standard Alert: Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Like McCaffrey, Cook is in a bad spot, a purely bad matchup as the Eagles are as tough as they come to stopping the run. Cook could still be a factor in the passing game but from a pure non-PPR point of view, there are better weeks to start Cook. The Eagles have shut down Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman and minimized the damage done by Kerryon Johnson and Aaron Jones. Cook could eventually get you some points, but it’s going to come from a combination of what he does catching as well as rushing. So is he a pure sit? Not exactly, but at the most, we’re seeing him topping out as a flex.
