In his last game under ex-Vikings OC John DeFilippo, Dalvin Cook handled a season-high 18 touches, which he parlayed into 83 yards from scrimmage and a garbage-time touchdown, good for a season-high 14.3 standard fantasy points.

In his first game under interim OC Kevin Stefanski, Cook, it says here, will exceed both of those season highs. After all, Mike Zimmer hasn't been shy about his desire to run the football. Miami comes to town as fantasy's eighth-most generous 'D' against opposing backs, struggling in particular against inside runs. And Cook, perhaps surprisingly, has averaged 6.3 yards per carry over his past two games, albeit combining for only 22 carries.

DeFilippo might be the scapegoat for Minnesota's struggles on offense, but Cook actually is playing his best football in 2018. He's RB12 overall in his past three games, following his worst effort of the season against the Bears. And after Minnesota struggled in his earlier absence with a hamstring injury, it seems likely it'll ride its explosive back with the season on the line. That's certainly what Zimmer is expecting, and Sunday serves as a good staging point.
