Gates looked done to me last season, but he can still catch a touchdown pass when the ball is forced to him. I'm hoping he takes a back seat to Hunter Henry this year, but even if he doesn't, he's just not good enough anymore.Cook has a wide range of outcomes in this offense. Seth Roberts had 21 red-zone targets for the Raiders last season, which is insane, and Cook could easily see a chunk of those.

Gates will have some fantasy appeal as a red zone tight end, but TE Hunter Henry is going to be the starter and see the bulk of the work at tight end. Cook is now with the Oakland Raiders, he has a chance to have TE2 value with upside if he sees enough targets.
