3. Green Bay should take a flier on Dalvin Cook

This past week, the New York Jets seemed to use running back Michael Carter more than they did veteran Dalvin Cook. Before the season, fans were excited to see Cook alongside Breece Hall and were anticipating some serious damage done in the back field from that duo. However, through five games, Cook has not looked like the same guy he once was.

Now, why would the Packers want to take a chance on Cook? Well, there are a couple of reasons. First of all, A.J. Dillon has been downright abysmal filling in for Aaron Jones. And, once Jones comes back, the Packers will still at least need a compliment to their starter.

Cook could still give the Packers 8-10 solid touches per game, including being active in the passing game as well. Here's another wrinkle, though: coming back to the NFC North with an opportunity to play against the team which let you go is a huge motivating factor.

Cook also knows the rest of the NFC North well, and that could help play into him coming to Green Bay. If he doesn't work out, the Packers aren't out much at all with this being a conditional pick.
