News: 5 days agoCook rushed once for two yards and caught two of three targets for 19 yards in Friday's 34-13 loss to the Dolphins.
Spin: Cook got three touches compared to 14 for Breece Hall, while rookie Israel Abanikanda finished without a touch. The status quo in the Jets' backfield is unchanged heading into a Week 13 matchup with the Falcons, with Cook locked in as the team's No. 2 running back but seeing minimal usage behind Hall.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cook signed with the Jets in August after he was released by the Vikings in early June. He's been a top fantasy back since he was drafted in 2017, so it may surprise you to know that 2022 marked his first season appearing in 100% of Minnesota's regular-season games. Cook ranked sixth among RBs in carries and rushing yards, and has finished top 10 in both categories (as well as touches and scrimmage yards) each of the past four seasons. He also saw 56 targets (15th most), which were his most since 2019. Cook's fantasy output has started to slip a bit (he was 15th in fantasy PPG in 2022 after an 11th-place showing in 2021) and he's unlikely to return to the RB1 mix as long as Breece Hall is a factor. Hall is recovering from a torn ACL, so Cook may start 2022 strong, but as Hall's role increases, the 28-year-old will be reduced to flex value (at best).
