James Cook Has Put in the Work as Per Joe Brady
1 month ago

New Bills’ Offensive Coordinator Joe Brady has noticed that running back James Cook has put in the work this offseason.

When discussing James Cook, OC Joe Brady stated “He’s physically in a better shape than he was, you can look at him and I can tell he put in a lot of work this offseason. He looks different and in a good way.” Looks like Brady and fantasy managers will be intrigued to see how Cook performs this season.

 

Last season, Cook took a major step forward in his development when he was the starter for the Bills. He rushed 237 times for 1,122 with two touchdowns. The second-year running back also caught 44 receptions for 445 yards and another four touchdowns. Cook illustrated that he could handle a large workload and was a dual threat for dynasty managers last season.

 

Cook has a current ADP of 39 as the 14th running back off the board. You should look to nab the running back in the early fourth round if you want to secure his services this season. Cook will get the majority of touches this Fall, but keep an eye on rookie running back Ray Davis in camp, because he may take away some carries from Cook, and he would skyrocket in value should Cook get injured.

James Cooks Set For "Large Portion" of Backfield
11 months ago

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen believes that RB James Cook is “going to take a large portion of the carries and in the pass game, he’s going to be kind of a dual threat guy for us”.

The Buffalo Bills enter 2023 with 265 vacated opportunities in their backfield following Nyheim Hines season-ending injury and the departures of Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, and Duke Johnson. Josh Allen has given his stamp of approval for James Cook to take the bulk of the reps. The 2nd-Round sophomore back out of Georgia has dominated as a receiver and a runner throughout the offseason but has struggled mightily in pass protection.

 

Buffalo signed former Patriots back Damien Harris to a 1-year deal just above the veteran minimum and signed Latavius Murray to the vet min to compete for the grinder-back touches between the tackles and in short-yardage situations. Expect to see plenty of James Cook between-the-20s and when Josh Allen decides to check it down.

 

What prevents Cook from becoming anything more than an RB2 is his 199lb frame. The 216lb Damien Harris and the 223lb Latavius Murray will be the ones getting the work inside the 5-yard line.
