REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Dalvin Cook to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 158 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Derrick Henry making him our #1 ranked running back. He has averaged 18.01 fantasy points in his past 35 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 17.5 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#2) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #3 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Dalvin Cook is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #3 fantasy position rank.

DALVIN COOK WEEK 9 AND 10 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Dalvin Cook is projected for 17.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #1 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is the highest ranked running back for the week, ahead of Chase Edmonds. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#5). He is projected for 15.1 fantasy points.
