Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) isn't listed on the final injury report and will play against the Lions this weekend. Cook obviously comes with elevated risk after exiting last week's game early in the 3rd quarter. But he's nearly impossible to bench in fantasy vs. Detroit's 30th-ranked RB defense.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer confirmed on Thursday that RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is on track to play against the Lions this weekend and will be "close to 100%." Cook, of course, was knocked out of last week's game near the beginning of the 3rd quarter after aggravating the shoulder injury originally suffered in Week 11. He comes with elevated risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups but is nearly impossible to bench vs. Detroit's 30th-ranked RB defense.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has been told that he can't make his shoulder injury worse by playing through it. It's a pain tolerance issue, and Cook reiterated that he'll play against the Lions this weekend. There's still elevated risk here, especially in a game Minnesota should control easily. But an active Cook would be impossible to bench in fantasy.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook aggravated an SC joint injury in his right shoulder in Monday night's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The original injury occurred in the Week 11 game against the Broncos. Minnesota had a Week 12 bye and then listed Cook on this week's injury report with a chest issue. Cook told Pelissero after Monday night's game that his absence in the 2nd half was "precautionary" and that he'll be "good to go" for Week 14's game against the Lions. Former head team Dr. David Chao writes that the injury doesn't require surgery but Cook's "ability to play and be effective will be a matter of pain tolerance." We'll obviously keep a close eye on him throughout this week. RB Alexander Mattison needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. He'll be an easy fantasy starter if Cook misses more time.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook suffered a right shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game in Seattle. He appeared to be in serious pain on the field before heading off to the locker room with trainers. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update Cook's status when we learn more. His absence would turn RB Alexander Mattison into a strong fantasy starter.

Injury Predictor

Cook followed a durable college career by losing three-quarters of his rookie campaign to a left ACL tear. He was back to team workouts by June OTAs, though, and appears on track for a full start to the regular season. Cook missed just 2 games across 3 years at Florida State, despite shoulder surgeries in 2014 (as a high-schooler) and 2016 and a hamstring/ankle injury in 2015.
