Dalvin Cook Backup Plan

Dalvin Cook is making a big bet by threatening to holdout if a new contract agreement isn’t reached before the season starts. Cook is coming into his fourth year following a monster year in 2019. I don’t think there is any doubt that Cook is one of the best running backs in the league, but he’s only had one good year so far. If Cook and the Vikings can’t reach an agreement and he misses early games or worst case scenario the entire season, then Alexander Mattison is a great pickup. Think James Conner in 2018 after Le’Veon Bell skipped the season and the first four games for Austin Ekeler in 2019.
