Minnesota Vikings rookie running backs Roc Thomas (ankle) and Mike Boone are inactive in Week 2 against the Packers. That means that only Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray will be active in the backfield against Green Bay. Thomas has yet to be active in his rookie season.
Minnesota Vikings rookie running backs Roc Thomas and Mike Boone are inactive for Week 1 against the 49ers. Cornerback Mackensie Alexander is also out with an injury. The Vikings will go with only Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray in their backfield for the season opener. With slot corner Alexander out, expect rookie Mike Hughes to man the slot against San Fran.
Minnesota Vikings running back Mike Boone is "safely" on the 53-man roster, according to a source of Chris Tomasson. This is really no surprise as Boone was fantastic all preseason long and was regularly praised by Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Boone will be the RB3 behind the talented duo of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray, but he does seem like a player that the Vikings will want to get involved. Boone's fantasy value is severely limited for now, but an injury or a goal-line back designation would warrant a pickup.
