Legion Report
Legion Report expects big things from Cook in 2013. He wasn’t utilized property in Tennessee and like many other Titan players, Fisher has taken them away from his former team. Jeff Fisher was quoted saying, “Jared has a giant receiving radius … with Sam’s accuracy, Sam can put the ball out of frame to complete it. And they work really well together.” Cook’s career high numbers are – 759 yards and 4 TDs. We expect him to exceed those numbers in 2013 and is an obvious Legion Report Sleeper.This guy has had fantasy gurus going crazy year after year, expecting a breakout performance from a guy behind an Aaron Rodgers powered offense. Nothing but praise has come out of camp surrounding Finley, as he sets out for a contract year. With the loss of Greg Jennings and injury to Jordy Nelson, Finley will see more goal-line looks and pump that measly 2 TD number in 2012 up to around 7 TDs with around 750 yards. If you miss on Graham and some of the others at the top, Finley is a guy you...

could be set for post-hype explosionNever stopped believing in his talent; seems like he may finally have matured enough to have breakout season

Cook has high upside but no denying he'll be hit or miss here.I like Finley's upside but 49ers are not a great matchup for him at all.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cook has looked good in the preseason and should be a big part of the Rams offense in the opener. The Cardinals were a respectable 10th against fantasy tight ends last season.Finley looks to be in shape and ready to go, although he does square off against a 49ers D that was 11th against fantasy tight ends.

Sam Bradford has never had a good TE. While Danny Amendola has been his best all-time target, Jared Cook should easily take over that role. Cook's size and speed is not matched by many TEs. He can also go up and get the ball in traffic, while streaming up the middle on a 30 Yard Route. Look for Jared to be heavily used this season.Jermichael has a few things working in his favor heading into 2013. The running game is looking weak, Aaron Rodgers is still the QB, <nobr><a href="#" class="FAtxtL" id="FALINK_2_0_1">Greg Jennings</a></nobr> is in Minnesota, and most importantly. Finley is on a contract year.  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 Picked up 15 targets and a score in two games vs. SF last season.
