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.

Vikings add WR Michael Floyd

One-year deal, $1.5 million

Receiver Michael Floyd has signed with the Vikings, an NFL source confirmed.

The deal is a one-year contract worth $1.5 million with as much as $6 million in incentives. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Floyd was waived by the Cardinals late last season for driving under the influence, picked up by the Patriots then became a free agent this off-season. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen sit atop the Vikings depth chart, which gives Floyd an opportunity to battle for playing time with Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright.
