2. Vikings RB Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook’s been limited in practice through Thursday (ankle), but he’s vowed to play. If his words come to fruition, he’ll obviously play a major role for the Vikings, much like Nick Chubb does for the Browns.

Cook appeared in the team’s first two games this season and has 42 carries for 192 yards (4.6 yards)

If he doesn’t, then the offensive will lean on Kirk Cousins to be the straw that stirs the drink.

Without Cook against the Sehawks last week, Cousins was 30-of-38 for 323 yards and a touchdown, so the Vikings can with out him.

What’s most puzzling is how Seattle lost with him against Cincinnati in Week 1. He was mostly bottled up, rushing 30 times for 61 yards (3.1 ypc). Cousins had to throw the ball 49 times and completed 36 passes (73 percent).
