Vikings’ offensive recipe changes with no Dalvin Cook


The byes are winding down, but the injuries are piling up as we head into Week 13 of the NFL season. Several star running backs were bitten by the injury bug last week, shaking up many fantasy lineups at a most critical time.

Among this week’s most pressing questions: Can the Minnesota Vikings offense (ranked ninth overall) keep rolling without No. 1 rusher Dalvin Cook?

ON BYE: Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans

Fantasy football rankings for Week 13 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled by FantasySharks.com.

(*- Be sure to check injury/status before kickoff)

Without star running back Dalvin Cook in the lineup, the Vikings will need to rely on quarterback Kirk Cousins and running back Alexander Mattison even more against the Lions in Week 13.
