Gates would have retired last year, but his team was so bad and injured, that he didn't want to go out on that note if possible. He'll be 35 years old, and his speed shows his age, but he's still a premium red-zone threat and is going to be safer than most, if not all of the tight ends who followCan Cook save his career in Green Bay? Well, Green Bay is one of the few places where he has a chance, and if he can, his fantasy upside is pretty high. I'm not going to invest too much in Cook, but I'll probably take a flier on him where I can

Gates is a little long in the tooth at 36-years old, but he should still be a good streaming option and have red zone value.Cook has shown well in preseason and I think he is going to have a big role in the Packers passing game.

I have him penciled in for 8 TD's.

Gates lost his main competition so he's in for another big year, provided the wheels don't fall off.Speedy, athletic freak tight end in Green Bay's offense? Color me excited. Cook has flamed out everywhere he's been, though, so TREAD LIGHTLY.

Despite missing five games, Gates had another useful fantasy season last year. There is no reason to expect different in 2016, but don't be too optimistic, thinking he is due for more targets with Ladarius Green now in Pittsburgh. We think Hunter Henry will be every bit as good as Green from the get-go.Vince Young, Kerry Collins, Matt Hasselbeck, Jake Locker, Sam Bradford, Shaun Hill, Austin Davis, Nick Foles, Case Keenum. Those are the names of his quarterbacks through his career. Aaron Rodgers. That is his QB this season. Buy Cook, even if you have to reach.
