2. Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Jets
Quarterback isn’t the only position the Jets have stuffed this year. Running backs have found it difficult to have that big game. Going back to Week 8, no running back has scored against the Jets. Prior to Week 8, three backs have had big games against New York: Nick Chubb, Raheem Mostert, and Rhamondre Stevenson. Cook comes in struggling in back-to-back games where he only scored 7.3 fantasy points against the Cowboys and Patriots. By comparison, the Jets are tougher against the run than the Cowboys but are on par with the Patriots. It’s tough to think Cook could be shut down three weeks in a row, but this is the hand he’s been dealt.
