Jared Cook caught all three of his targets for 25 yards in the Rams' 28-26 upset victory over the Seahawks.
Fantasy Impact: Cook was targeted much less frequently in this plus matchup, and has been practice lately, was vultured out of a touchdown by his fellow tight end Lance Kendricks. Cook continues to be the second most targeted pass catcher in St. Louis, but now matchups may not seem that important anymore for his fantasy production. There are probably better options during bye weeks on waiver wires.

Jared Cook caught four passes on 11 targets for 74 yards in the Rams' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.
Fantasy Impact: Cook certainly started out hot, but had a 21-yard catch called back on an offensive pass interference penalty and was overthrown on a potential touchdown. Cook was the most targeted pass catcher on Monday night, but as usual, didn't do as much with his opportunities as he could have.

Rams' TE Jared Cook caught 4 balls on 10 targets for 44 yards in the team's 34-28 loss to Philadelphia.
Fantasy Impact: Cook continues to be a favorite of QB Austin Davis. He is consistently in the top two for targets along with Brian Quick, but consistently fails to do much with them. He also played on 80% of snaps, more than any other pass catcher. With rough matchups coming up against San Francisco and Seattle, Cook continues to be best left on waiver wires.

Jared Cook caught 7 passes on 9 targets for 75 yards in the Rams' 34-31 loss to Dallas.
Fantasy Impact: It could have been a much brighter day for Cook. A beautiful 30 yard catch down the sideline in the second quarter was called back on an offensive interference penalty. Cook also bobbled a sure-fire 4th quarter touchdown in the end zone. His day could have been 9-115-1. The bad news is that the Rams exploited a Dallas team that does not defense the TE well, so this might be one of Cook's better games this year. The good news is Cook's usage makes him the #2 option in the passing game behind Brian Quick, so down the line, Cook may make for a good matchup-dependent streamer TE2. Remember, he'll get the Arizona defense in weeks 10 and 15.

Rams' TE Jared Cook caught 4 passes on eight targets for 56 yards in the Rams' home opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Impact: Cook was the second most targeted receiver, only behind Brian Quick. Cook may have some bye-week replacement value down the line this season, but for right now, the Rams must work on their QB situation for the WR and TE corps to have any fantasy value.

In his first game as a Ram in 2013, Jared Cook caught seven passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't exceed 45 receiving yards in any of the next nine games and didn't score another touchdown until Week 9. Cook is looking to improve on consistency in 2014. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Cook has never quite lived up to the hype through four years at Tennessee and 1 year in St. Louis. The way this team is being built for 2014 would seem to indicate that a big role for Cook is possible, but right now is FantasyPros ECR is TE21. We'll have to wait and see if he's able to move up that chart this year.
