News: 3 days agoCook rushed 14 times for 64 yards and secured all six targets for 41 yards in the Bills' 24-10 win over the Patriots on Thursday night.

Spin: Cook ended up as the surprise leader in rush attempts and rushing yardage on the night for the Bills while also checking in second in receptions. The rookie outpaced Devin Singletary by one carry and 13 rushing yards, and Cook also drew four more targets than his backfield mate, who didn't bring in either of his two looks. Whether Thursday night's usage is a harbinger of things to come down the stretch remains to be seen, but it's worth noting Cook does now have double-digit rush attempts in two of his last three games heading into a Week 14 home divisional showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cook was selected by Buffalo in the second round of April's draft. Cook isn't quite as big or strong as his older brother, Dalvin, but he has the speed (4.42 40-yard dash), explosiveness and receiving ability to make noise in the pros as a situational back. He totaled 230 carries during four seasons at Georgia (career-high 113 as a senior), but his efficiency was terrific, as he averaged 6.5 yards per carry and 9.4 yards per target while not dropping a single one of his 78 career targets. Cook may never come close to the volume his brother enjoys, but he's joining an elite Buffalo offense and has big upside as a receiving specialist. Expect him to step into No. 2/passing-down duties behind Devin Singletary early on. Consistent fantasy value is unlikely, but he'll be an interesting insurance option and is well worth a late-round pick.
