2. Dalvin Cook, Jets

It was once a great idea to pair Dalvin Cook with Aaron Rodgers in New York, but that idea went sideways in a hurry. Of course, Rodgers' torn Achilles changed things. As for Cook, his usage has diminished significantly as the season has worn on. It's been mostly Breece Hall getting the work for the Jets' back field.

In his last four games, Cook has yet to top six carries. Now, he's also looked a bit washed, so this trade idea could be a risky one. It seems as though Cook has hit the running back wall this season, but the fact that he could come as cheap as it gets might make him an attractive chance to take.

If the Ravens can get Cook for something like a conditional sixth or seventh rounder, he'd be worth bringing in. Baltimore's scheme has always allowed for strong rushing performances, even though it's a brand-new scheme under Todd Monken this year. The personnel is built for running the football.

Maybe having the threat of Jackson's legs will also help Cook find his way. Who knows. But, he's likely available, regardless.
