Nerdy Football Analysis: Johnson lacked explosiveness in camp and was plagued by fumbling issues during pre-season games. Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington and Elijaah Penny are next up on the depth chart behind do-everything David Johnson.

Vikings RB on the rise

RB Dalvin Cook: Cook broke arm tackles on his way to picking up 33 yards on three consecutive carries against the Seahawks, showing off his combination of power and elusiveness once he finds a seam. Cook’s production came behind a patchwork offensive line that expects to return two of its starters – Alex Boone and Riley Reiff – for the next preseason game on Aug. 27. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Cook’s averaged draft position has been on the rise over the last week and half after seeing extensive action with the first team offense through two pre-season games. With an ADP of 3.09 (RB16) you’ll need to consider him in Round 3 if you’re drafting this weekend.
