I’m looking to back the Bills’ rookie running back after his career game last week. Cook saw his snap share bumped to 43%, the highest of his young pro career, in last week’s win against the Patriots.
And Cook capitalized on his opportunity, leading the Bills in both rushing yards (64) and attempts (14). It was the first time this season he out-touched fellow running back, Devin Singletary.
Against the Jets’ stout pass defense, and with some potential weather concerns, I see the Bills leaning into the run game a bit more this week.
Even with a projected 50/50 carry share with Singletary, the Georgia product should have no issue running past this line. I have Dalvin’s younger brother projected at 45 yards on the ground today.
