Dalvin Cook's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 14.8 FanDuel points and 17.9 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1447 more than $7.4K on FanDuel and +$1862 more than $6K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Dalvin Cook to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 188 projected fantasy points puts him at #12 behind Leonard Fournette and ahead of Kerryon Johnson. He has averaged 10.18 fantasy points in his past 11 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.7 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#13) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #9 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Dalvin Cook is expected to improve on last season's #30 fantasy position rank.

DALVIN COOK WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Dalvin Cook is projected for 12.9 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #7 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Chris Carson but behind Leonard Fournette. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#9). He is projected for 11.6 fantasy points.
