RB: Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook (ankle) is questionable for Week 5 against the Lions.

Coach Mike Zimmer labeled Cook a "game-time decision" after the latter failed to practice at any point throughout the week. Fantasy managers should expect Alexander Mattison to start given Minnesota's soft matchup against Detroit, which will likely be without three starting o-linemen on Sunday. If Cook is (surprisingly) active, consider him a low-end RB1 in a timeshare since he's clearly not at full strength. He and Mattison most recently split touches 11-10 in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.
