If you’ve looked at the free agency situation this off-season, NFL organizations have snapped up veteran running backs. Because the demand for premium talent in this position never decreases, pay days just keep coming. The Minnesota Vikings moved on from Dalvin Cook, but it doesn’t look like Madden 24 is holding on.
Dalvin Cook is still adored by ‘Madden’
When the offseason began, questions immediately arose regarding Dalvin Cook’s future with the Minnesota Vikings. Kevin O’Connell changed the way Minnesota ran offensively and moving away from Mike Zimmer’s run-first philosophy was chief among them.
Dalvin Cook clearly felt that despite his use, and staying healthy for the entire season for the first time in his career, his production had never taken off. Madden 24 has been kind to the Vikings, and it continues with the former runner’s trail.
Rather than keep Cook around, general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah decided to bring back Alexander Mattison and make him a bell cow. With Cook gone, Mattison is set to share duties with Ty Chandler, Kane Nwanwugu and Deven McBride. However, none of them equal Cook’s 91 overall rating in Madden 24.
