Vikings’ offensive recipe changes with no Dalvin Cook

The byes are winding down, but the injuries are piling up as we head into Week 13 of the NFL season. Several star running backs were bitten by the injury bug last week, shaking up many fantasy lineups at a most critical time.

Among this week’s most pressing questions: Can the Minnesota Vikings offense (ranked ninth overall) keep rolling without No. 1 rusher Dalvin Cook?
