Another week, another great performance for Dalvin Cook, much to the happiness of both Vikings fans and his fantasy football beneficiaries. Cook had 142 yards and two touchdowns against Detroit on Sunday, continuing a fantastic 2019 season where he currently sits as the league’s leading rusher and scorer.

He also had this big hit on former Florida State teammate and national champion Devonta Freeman:
Speaking of Devonta, he probably would like to forget Sunday. Other than the fumble above, he had this lowlight against Aaron Donald:

The second-year professional didn’t match his fantastic performance from last week, but still had this impressive grab against the Jaguars:

Walker followed up a two-sack week six performance with a five tackle, one sack game in a losing effort to the Chiefs. Walker seems to be finding more of a groove with the Broncos, playing 31 of 51 possible snaps on Thursday night. The 2017 draft pick is Denver’s current sack leader, with five on the season.
Both New England tight end Ryan Izzo and Washington running back Chris Thompson were inactive on Sunday, with Izzo dealing with a practice-sustained concussion and Thompson with a toe injury.
Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Brian Burns and Javien Elliot (Carolina Panthers) were all on a bye this week. Winston returns against Tennessee in week eight, while Burns and Elliot face off against the 49ers.
