3.) Building off of 2023
The 2023 season was Cook’s entrance into the league as a serious player that teams will need to gameplan for. Not to mention, Cook only has two more years left on his deal with the Bills and if he is looking to get an extension before 2025, he will need to pick up where he left off in the 2023 season. In 2022, running back Devin Singletary was the main guy in the backfield while Cook was still getting adjusted to the pro game. In Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders, he carried the ball 17 times for 123 yards in what would be his career game.
Then during the Bills’ midseason slump, Cook still managed to help the Buffalo offense stay afloat as much as possible while the overall offense was struggling under former offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey before he was fired.
Overall, Cook showed in 2023 that he can compete and put himself in the conversation as one of the best running backs in football.
