Cook hasn’t been able to stay healthy, but instead of shying away from this, I’m viewing it as a way to get him cheap.

The Vikings fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo after a disastrous Week 14, making it clear they would become a more balanced team. And sure enough, Cook finished as the RB7 over the final three games. Now Latavius Murray is gone and they brought in Gary Kubiak as an assistant head coach — two signs that Cook could become a workhorse back on a team that intends to have a more efficient rushing attack.
