Dalvin Cook's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Dalvin Cook to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 211 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Le`Veon Bell and ahead of Josh Jacobs. He has averaged 11.33 fantasy points in his past 12 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 14.1 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Dalvin Cook is expected to improve on last season's #30 fantasy position rank.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 2 FOR DALVIN COOK WITH FEWER FPS THAN AUSTIN EKELER

Dalvin Cook is projected for 13.6 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #9 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above James Conner but behind Austin Ekeler. Week 3 will be better based on projected rank (#3). He is projected for 16.8 fantasy points.

DALVIN COOK IS A BETTER VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.9K THAN ON DRAFTKINGS AT $7.2K

He is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 15.3 FD points and is worth +$648 more than $7.9K on FD. On DK he is projected for 18.4 points and is worth +$251 more than $7.2K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms.
