Vikings' Dalvin Cook (groin) reportedly expected to miss Week 6 versus Falcons

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook (groin) isn't expected to play Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons, reports Chad Graff of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Cook suffered an adductor strain during the Vikings' Week 5 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. He will be re-evaluated following the Vikings' Week 7 bye. Alexander Mattison out-snapped Mike Boone 43-5 on Sunday and finished with 112 yards on 20 carries while adding 3 catches (3 targets) for 24 yards. He seems poised to take over three-down duties while Cook is out and will get to take on a Falcons defense in Week 7 that just gave up 149 scrimmage yards to Mike Davis. Even with Mattison likely leading the way, Boone and Ameer Abdullah could see expanded roles as well.

Cook has added 0.20 Rushing Net Expected Points per carry this season, compared to Mattison adding 0.02. The Falcons are allowing the 10th-most FanDuel points per game (25.0) to opposing backfields.
