Fantasy Football Advice
It's extremely difficult to judge how good Cook is going to be this season. At age 32 he's fresh off his best season as a pro after putting together a 68/896/6 stat line in Oakland. Over the past three seasons, Saints TE's as a whole have combined for 87 targets on average. We know that Taysom Hill, Josh Hill, and Dan Arnold are all going to get targets...so a realistic projection for Cook is around 50. My current projection on Cook is 46/639/3.4. That projection honestly seems a little high, and yet it still comes in as the 13th highest among TE's. Cook is being over valued this season compared to the amount of targets he's set to receive. He's not a bad pick, and he's not someone I would flat out avoid...because the TD upside is massive. There are just other guys you should be targeting instead.

FantasyPros
We know Drew Brees' offense is fantasy gold for tight ends, but we saw Cook with Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers in 2016 and he did nothing, so perhaps even Brees won't lock him into the fantasy top 12. Additionally, Cook was TE15 in 2017 before his big 2018 season which was fueled by the fact that Jordy Nelson was their #1 receiver. In New Orleans, he will be the #3 or #4 option at best so perhaps we should be careful with our expectations. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Recency bias is real with Cook, who has been a disappointment throughout his fantasy career. Sure, he's going to play with Drew Brees in New Orleans, but don't forget that he played with Aaron Rodgers just a few short years ago. Did you know that 2018 was the first time he scored more than five touchdowns in a season? Or how about that it was his first time topping 54 receptions or 759 yards? Over the last three years there hasn't been a running back/tight end duo who's topped 195 targets on the same team (the highest duo on the Saints has been just 151). Over the last two years, Kamara has totaled at least 100 targets, which tells you that Cook's ceiling is extremely limited. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cook had 896 yards receiving and 6 touchdowns on a team with no legit wide receivers after they traded WR Amari Cooper midseason. He landed in a great spot in New Orleans, but he will not see as many targets in a loaded offense. He is still a TE1 candidate playing with a future Hall of Fame quarterback.
