At this very moment, the Rushing Leaders of the NFL seem to be coming down between Titans RB Derrick Henry, and Vikings RB Dalvin Cook. Minnesota’s star player has a legitimate opportunity to take the lead in that race this coming week, as Cook will be playing against a soft Panthers rush defense.
He’s currently ranked as our #1 running back. No question about Cook when he’s healthy and getting involved.
So far this year, the Panthers have allowed an average of 116.8 rushing yards per game, which puts them in the bottom half of the league. Meanwhile, Dalvin Cook is averaging an incredible 118.8 yards per game by himself.
He’s running the ball better than most teams in the NFL, and this is a dream matchup for Vikings fans. You thought Dalvin Cook was a monster already? Just wait until this Sunday, as he’ll be feasting on the Panthers defense like it’s Thanksgiving dinner all over again.
