Analysis: After watching Kareem Hunt and Leonard Fournette excel in their NFL debuts, Cook showed he can make an immediate impact as well with an impressive performance running behind what looks to be an improved Minnesota offensive line. With Latavius Murray getting just two carries in the opener, the rookie should be locked in as a fantasy starter.
