Through 20 career games
Peterson: 367 carries, 1,904 yards (5.19 ypc), 15 TDs; 30 receptions, 324 yards, 1TD
Cook: 299 carries, 1,511 yards (5.05 ypc), 9 TDs; 72 receptions, 595 yards, 2 TDs

i really liked watching the plays where he takes a short backfield pass or a screen, and then just smooths to the next level.

he has lots of power and of course speed, but also finesse.

Cook only played half the game in 2017. He had 13 for 66 and a TD when he blew out his knee early in the 3rd quarter.

First meeting in 2018 was his first game back from the hamstring, he only got 10 carries for 89 yards. Got more work in the rematch: 16 carries for 73 yards.

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook has taken over the NFL’s rushing lead. Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has been the rushing leader for most of this season, but while McCaffrey was on his bye this week, Cook ran for 142 yards against the Lions. Cook now has 725 yards through seven weeks, most in the NFL.

In second place is Leonard Fournette of the Jaguars, who has 715 yards through seven games. McCaffrey is third with 618 yards in six games, followed by Cleveland’s Nick Chubb with 607 in six games.

Those four players are very close in yards per game. Here’s how the Top 4 shake out:

103.6 Dalvin Cook
103.0 Christian McCaffrey
102.1 Leonard Fournette
101.2 Nick Chubb

I’m surprised that nick Chubb is that good for one. For two, Cook has the most 100 yd rushing games in the nfl with 5 out of 7. He is a special running back.

Weird stat that shows how much Cook influences a defense:

Over the past 3 games, when the Vikings run play action AFTER a Cook run, they are averaging 19.5 yards per attempt. 

Cook forces defenses to cheat and Cousins has been making them pay. I hope they return to the screen game this week and get him involved in the passing game, because he's been a real threat there as well.

Chubb is phenomenal. Definitely belongs as a top 10 RB. Lots of good ones in the top 5 right now and Cook looks the part this year.

He is an all around complete back. Definitely if he stays on course will be the 2nd greatest rb of our Vikings lore

Point being we’ve become accustomed to having a clear cut #1 RB from Tomlinson to Peterson. It seems more wide open now but the talent level overall seems superior than a few years ago. Any one of those players in the top 5 could have a case for being #1, and even the top 5 is hugely debatable.

I think Saquon Barkley is probably the best RB in the game when healthy. 

McCaffrey, Elliott and Cook are probably the 2nd tier.

Chubb, Josh Jacobs, and Alvin Kamara are on the outside peeking in.
