Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Cook is constantly overlooked, yet he was 7th in 2019. He'll drop slightly with Sanders in town, but he's still a fine TE1 in deep leagues. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
While playing for three different teams from 2015 through '17, Cook caught only nine passes on plays that began inside the 20-yard line despite being targeted 28 times in the red zone over that span. (Even worse, he turned just one of those catches into a score.) He's been more effective in the red zone the past two seasons and should be a factor inside the 20 again in 2020.Although Goedert's fantasy upside is limited as the second option among Philly's tight ends, we were right when we predicted here last year that he could emerge as "more than just a mere handcuff for Zach Ertz owners." With the Eagles' receiving corps depleted late last year, Goedert was targeted 22 times over back-to-back must-win games to end the 2019 regular season.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Stats for Jared Cook last season: Weeks 1-8: 15 rec, 168yds, 2TDs (6 games, got hurt and missed 2 games) Weeks 10-16: 26 rec, 493yds, 6TDs That bye week did wonders for Jared Cook. @budrich17 
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
There's a regression on the horizon for Mr. Cook, who finished as TE7 on just 65 targets, but scored 9 touchdowns. His aDOT was 2nd in the NFL among TE next to Mark Andrews. If his target share remains the same or tapers off with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, there's nowhere to go but down for Cook. He's a poor volume bet in a run-first offense and likely a fringe TE1 but more of a TE2 for me.The former SDSU Jackrabbit really asserted himself in 2019, but if anything happens to Zach Ertz in 2020, he's an immediate top-6 option at the position. Blessed with the 2nd best PFF blocking grade since 2018 (even better than George Kittle), Goedert will be hard to take off of the field. Good thing that the Eagles played the most 12-personnel last season, so if things continue that way, Goedert has a solid shot of returning low-end TE1 numbers in 2020.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jared Cook had an insanely efficient 2019, turning just 65 targets into a TE7 on the back of historic red zone efficiency with 9 total TDs and 700 yards. Massive regression is indicated in 2020 but in non-PPR he remains a solid option as this Saints offense lacks the weapons to really threaten him. In PPR he's barely draftable as the upside on a weekly basis is so low. Don't be sucked into his 7th round price tag as that's above his ceiling.Dallas Goedert is a very talented tight end but he remains stuck behind Zach Ertz in the Eagles pecking order. While they finished numbers 1 and 2 for targets in Philly last season, the return of Desean Jackson and presumedly Alshon Jeffery plus the influx of rookie receivers means there'll be far more competition for targets this season. While there's hope Goedert starts to take over some of Ertz's work, it's hard to see him making serious forward steps in 2020. That upside cap makes him a middling tight end option, unless Ertz gets injured, and that handcuff value makes him worth the late round gamble. After all, you can always drop him after week 1.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's very uncommon for tight ends to finish in the top-10 with less than 100 targets, but Cook finished as the No. 7 tight end in 2019 with just 65 targets. He did that because he scored a touchdown every 7.2 targets, a number that is sure to regress. It's tough to find him more targets in the offense in 2020 with the arrival of Emmanuel Sanders, too. He's likley going to be a touchdown-or-bust option, which puts him in the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 territory.We saw an upward trajectory in Goedert's career in 2019, though much of it was due to injuries to all of the wide receivers. Still, he saw at least five targets in 10 of the last 11 games, highlighting how much he's trusted. He's one of the rare cases of a tight end handcuff who has league-winning upside should anything happen to Zach Ertz. He does present some value on his own, but not enough to make it into the top-12 conversation.

The addition of Emmanuel Sanders will take some targets away. I still like him in the redzone though.The best mid round TE you can grab, solid handcuff and consistent part of the Eagles offense

Even with Drew Brees missing time last season, Cook finished 2019 with some strong numbers, especially in the TD department, scoring nine times. But, like most TE's, Cook is largely TD dependent on a week to week basis and I don't see him scoring nine TDs again in 2020. He should have a safe floor but his upside is capped with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara demanding most of the touches in New Orleans.If Goedert wasn't playing behind Zach Ertz he'd be an unquestioned top-10 fantasy TE but as of now, you can't start a TE who isn't even starting on his own team. He's definitely worth stashing in case anything happens to Ertz, but until then, he should remain on your bench.

Cook's aDOT of 10.4 yards was second behind only Mark Andrews among tight ends who received at least 22 targets last year, and he scored an impressive nine touchdowns. But it's unlikely he can put up quite the same fantasy season again if he can't improve on his 43 receptions. With Emmanuel Sanders on board and Alvin Kamara fully healthy, Drew Brees will have plenty of other options in the passing game, meaning it's unlikely that Cook will see an increase in targets. In other words, draft Cook as a starting tight end, but consider him more of a low-end option despite last year's production.

Cook is currently being drafted as a top-10 tight end and there's a very narrow path for him to return that type of value in 2020. Cook was well above the league average last year in terms of yards per TD rate and he averaged an unsustainable 16.4 YPR. Those numbers are both going to be very difficult to replicate this year and that's not even mentioning the fact that the Saints spent significant draft assets to acquire Adam Trautman. There's more competition for targets in this offense and Cook's being drafted at his absolute ceiling right now. I highly recommend looking elsewhere in your drafts.While Goedert does possess incredible talent and ability, he's living in the shadow of Zach Ertz currently. Goedert's nothing more than a streaming candidate this season with the limited passing volume heading his way. However, he possesses league-winning upside if Ertz were to miss time.

In 9 games with Brees, Jared Cook saw 41 tgts, 30 rec, 574 yards (14 per tgt), 7 TDs... insane Top-3 pace. Brees is back for at least one more ride, although Cook will now face more target competition with Sanders around.

FantasyPros
Cook had 705 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns, he does carry the risk of playing with a 41-year old quarterback and the risk of entering his age 33 season.Goedert is a backup tight end, but he had a huge role last year with 607 yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns. He should continue to have low-end TE1 value in 2020, even if starting TE Zach Ertz is healthy.
