News: 5 days agoCook (shoulder) rushed nine times for 35 yards, caught one of two targets for 11 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.
Spin: Cook posted his highest rushing yardage total of the season, but his second-quarter fumble in Jets territory set up the only touchdown of the game on Atlanta's ensuing drive. New York's offense has struggled all season, and Cook's poor play after signing with the Jets as a free agent has contributed to the team's shortcomings.
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).
