Vikings have all kinds of O-Line injuries.  Dalvin Cook is my keeper but I'm a little worried about him.  I'd take Barkley ahead of him for sure.

Keenan Allen came back as a top player after an ACL tear.
 
 
Check out this NFL injury predictor website with all past injuries I just came across:  https://sportsinjurypredictor.com/player/dalvin-cook/7748   A couple look ups were free now I see it's a pay site, that's too bad.


Players have done it, but I just can't get myself to take a guy coming off an ACL as my #1 player at the most important position in FF. For me, the risk is too big.

My issue with Cook is he even a true bell cow? L Murray isn't going away, he will get carries especially early on. As long as Barkley is good to go as expected I'd want him by a country mile. The more interesting argument is Cook vs CMC.

Yeah, "players" have done it. Got a list of RB's? Aside from Peterson, I don't remember any... well, not the year after anyways.

That's why I didn't get specific, because I couldn't remember any other than Peterson either HA. RB is different than WR. Cook could have a great year, but he's just going too high for me to be comfortable with the risk.

Tough call. The rule for many years was if a guy had an acl, he was done for that year and untouchable the next as well.

When the 7th round hits there will be 20-25 rbs taken. Unless you're playing in a four team league, there is ZERO chance cook is available then.
Anything after the 2nd round you stole him.

Only if he does something that only Adrian Peterson ever accomplished.
