Dalvin Cook Totals 29 Yards Against Patriots

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook handled eight carries for 18 yards and hauled in all three of his targets for 11 yards in a Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots. Cook was out-touched by Breece Hall on Sunday, but the 28-year-old was slightly more efficient. With Zach Wilson at the helm, the Jets once again struggled to move the ball and score. Cook will hope to improve on a lackluster start to the season in a Week 4 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Dalvin Cook A Desperation Flex Option In Week 3

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook has had an inefficient start to the 2023 campaign and will hope to turn things around in a Week 3 matchup against the New England Patriots. Although Cook currently leads New York's backfield in touches and snaps this season, it hasn't amounted to much fantasy production. It's unclear what the split between Cook, Breece Hall, and Michael Carter will look like going forward, but they are all risky fantasy options with Zach Wilson leading the offense. Cook shouldn't be considered as anything more than a flex play in deeper fantasy leagues this week.

Dalvin Cook Bottled Up In Week 2 Loss

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook handled four rush attempts for seven yards and added five receiving yards on one catch in the team's Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Cook also lost a fumble in the third quarter. Although he was ultimately ineffective, Cook led New York's running backs in touches and snaps as the Jets were quickly forced to pass to stay in the game. With Breece Hall expected to receive more work as the season progresses, Cook's opportunities could dwindle in the coming weeks. The veteran should be viewed as a desperation flex option for yet another tough matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 3.

Dalvin Cook - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook led the team's backfield in snaps and touches last week and should continue to be heavily involved in a Week 2 bout with the Dallas Cowboys. Although Cook turned his 16 opportunities into 59 yards in Week 1, Breece Hall (knee) stole the show with 147 total yards in his first game back from a torn ACL. Head coach Robert Saleh stated that Hall will continue to get more work as the season progresses but currently remains on a pitch count, so Cook will likely lead the way again this week. Unfortunately, the veteran could struggle to produce against a Dallas defense that surrendered the fifth-fewest fantasy points to running backs in 2022. Fantasy managers should view Cook as an RB3 or flex option for Sunday's contest.

Dalvin Cook Totals 59 Yards In Win Over Bills

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook handled 13 carries for 33 yards as well as three receptions for 26 yards in a 22-16 overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills. Cook was expected to lead the way in New York's backfield on Monday night, and while he was given five more touches than Breece Hall, he was outshined by the second-year man who ripped off an 83-yard run in the second quarter. The 28-year-old Cook should continue to be involved as the season progresses, but Hall looks poised to take over RB1 duties sooner than expected. Fantasy managers should view Cook as a possible flex play moving forward but may want to consider other options in Week 2 when the Jets take on the Dallas Cowboys.

Dalvin Cook To Get Bulk Of Touches As Jets Ease In Breece Hall

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook is expected to handle the bulk of the workload as Breece Hall (knee) is eased back in following last season's ACL tear, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Hall should see some snaps, but Rapoport's claim that the Jets will "play it safe" with their young back indicates that he'll play second-fiddle to Cook on Monday Night Football. For fantasy football purposes, consider Cook a low-end RB2 while Hall is best left on your bench.

Dalvin Cook Draws Difficult Matchup In Jets Debut

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook is set to make his debut for the team in a Week 1 Monday night showdown against the Buffalo Bills. Although Cook is expected to split carries with second-year pro Breece Hall (knee), it's currently unclear exactly how much action Hall will see in his return from an ACL tear last season. If Cook leads the way, it will be against a strong Buffalo run defense that held its opponents to fewer than 105 rushing yards per game in 2022, the sixth-fewest in the NFL. Fantasy managers should consider Cook an RB3 with some flex appeal to open the season.

Dalvin Cook Given Green Light For Week 1

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook has been declared a "full go" for the team's matchup against the Buffalo Bills on September 11. Cook has been recovering from offseason shoulder surgery undergone in February, which prevented him from practicing with his new team until August 29. In 2022, he recorded his fourth straight 1,000-yard season, rushing for 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns in his last year as a Viking. Now with the Jets, Cook will split time with second-year back Breece Hall, as coach Robert Saleh tries to keep both of his star rushers healthy for as long as possible.

Dalvin Cook, Breece Hall Could Have 50-50 Split In Week 1

The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt writes that it's virtually impossible to predict how the New York Jets will split the workload between running backs Dalvin Cook and Breece Hall (knee) to begin the 2023 regular season, and Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills might not be indicative of how it's going to look the rest of the year. Hall just started taking part in 11-on-11 drills a few weeks ago, and Cook practiced in full for the first time on Aug. 29. Rosenblatt ultimately expects it to be something of a 50-50 split, at least as the Jets ease Hall back into form after he tore his ACL in his rookie season in 2022. Both RBs will have plenty of opportunities for touches and both should contribute as pass-catchers. Predicting their fantasy production could be a headache, though, especially in a tough Week 1 matchup against the Bills.

Dalvin Cook Expected To Play In Week 1

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 1 on Monday night against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 11. Neither Cook nor Breece Hall (knee) will be on a snap count, but head coach Robert Saleh said the team will be prudent with their usage. Cook is expected to be New York's primary running back early in the year with the Jets easing Hall back after last year's torn ACL, but the team also has Michael Carter and rookie Israel Abanikanda at their disposal. Against a strong Buffalo defense in the season opener, fantasy managers should consider both Cook and Hall to be low-upside RB3/flex options for their starting lineups until we get a better sense of how the team will utilize them together.

Dalvin Cook To Be Jets' Leading Rusher?

ESPN's Dan Graziano thinks that New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook could be the team's leading rusher in the first half of the season. The Jets still have big plans for Breece Hall (knee), and the expectation is that Hall will be the backfield leader by the end of 2023. However, he's also being eased in from a torn ACL suffered in his rookie campaign. The primary reason the Jets signed Cook was to take pressure off Hall's recovery timetable. New York also views Cook as an ideal runner in their offense, as well as a receiver who can make big plays. Graziano thinks Cook will open the year as something close to a three-down back at least through September while the Jets gradually increase Hall's workload. Hall's fantasy value definitely took a hit when the Jets signed Cook, although it doesn't mean managers should completely avoid him in upcoming drafts.

Dalvin Cook Returns To Practice For First Time

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time this summer after signing with the team two weeks ago. Cook is now gearing up for the team's Monday night opener against the division-rival Buffalo Bills in Week 1. Cook is expected to have a big role right away for the Jets as they look to ease in second-year back Breece Hall (knee), who is coming off an ACL tear last October. Cook and Hall should be involved in some form of timeshare all year, which will limit both of their ceilings as fantasy backs in 2023. At best, fantasy managers should consider Cook an RB3/flex heading into his first season with Gang Green.

Dalvin Cook Works With Rehab Group Thursday

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) was in uniform at training camp on Thursday but was working in the rehab area with other injured players. The Jets just signed the former Minnesota Vikings RB to a deal on Monday, and he's not expected to start practicing with the team for at least another week after recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Breece Hall (knee) was just activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list this week as well after suffering a torn ACL in his rookie season in 2022. The Jets plan on using Cook as their lead back early in the regular season while easing Hall in, but the 28-year-old Cook still needs to learn New York's offense in a short amount of time. As the season progresses, Hall should see his workload increase. Cook should be considered an RB3/flex in upcoming fantasy drafts.
