Signs are pointing towards Dalvin Cook being out until Week 11 https://t.co/uK8gOLpccY— Field Yates (@FieldYates) October 24, 2018
The news means that Latavius Murray will continue to handle most of the backfield duties, and the Vikings will gladly welcome that. Over the last two weeks, Murray has run the ball 39 times for 224 yards and three touchdowns -- a significant improvement from the 106 yards he had posted in the five games prior to that.

Fellow Vikings running backs Mike Boone and Roc Thomas have hardly made a blip on the fantasy radar, but should anything happen to Murray they'll be thrust into a primary role.
Dalvin Cook’s lost season continues. Meanwhile, Latavius Murray somehow still remains available in almost 30% of ESPN leagues. https://t.co/fsWmXPSI7T— Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) October 24, 2018
