According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray could "split a good bit of the rushing load" this season.

Coach Mike Zimmer said it's "too early" to think about how carries will be distributed, though he said both will be "factors." Murray played well down the stretch last season and could work in tandem with Cook, who is coming off a torn ACL. Cook is still the back to own for fantasy purposes, though Murray's presence makes him a tough sell as an RB1.

Jerick McKinnon (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 5.

It's big news, as it means there will officially be a committee in Dalvin Cook's absence. Latavius Murray will grind between the tackles on early downs, and McKinnon will catch passes/try to change the pace. Ineffective for the Raiders last season, Murray has also had an extremely slow recovery from ankle surgery. It's possible McKinnon eventually pushes him in short-yardage situations. McKinnon comes with more long-term upside, though Murray's short-term floor is higher.

Dalvin Cook is officially listed as the Vikings' starting running back.

Latavius Murray barely practiced this summer, leaving an opening for second-rounder Cook. He burst through it, turning 23 preseason touches into 105 yards. Cook continually impressed in practice. He opens the year as an RB2 with RB1 upside.
