Dalvin Cook – RB

No one has ever questioned the talent level of Dalvin Cook. Everyone is aware of how dynamic of a running back he is whenever he steps on the field.

The problem during the early part of his NFL career has been his health. But after a pair of injury-riddled campaigns during his first two years with the Vikings, Cook is healthier than ever and the rest of the NFL is finding out how truly special he is with the ball in his hands.

Through eight games in 2019, the Minnesota running back leads the league in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. In addition to his impressive numbers on the ground this season, he’s also hauled in 29 passes for 293 yards.

With what he’s been able to do so far this year, Cook is currently on pace to tie Adrian Peterson for the second-most touchdowns in a single season by a Vikings running back.
