Dalvin Cook – RB

2019 NFL Top 100 Ranking: Unranked

2020 NFL Top Projection: 98

The Vikings tailback has not yet made one of these player-driven lists because of injury.

This year he will break through to the Top 100. Dalvin Cook remained mostly healthy in 2020, a feat that was the first of its ilk for his young career. The 24-year-old delivered as most pundits would expect in 2019 and affirmed that, when healthy, he is deadly.

Cook finished second in the entire NFL in yards from scrimmage per game (118.1) behind Christian McCaffrey. He also banged home 13 touchdowns, which was seventh-best in the league. All in all, Cook accounted for 29 percent of Minnesota’s total offensive yards.

For this projection, he comes in at number 98. But it would not be stunning to see him even higher. Heck, if Mark Ingram was ranked number 80 last year in this Top 100, Cook should theoretically top that.
