Jared Cook leads Chargers in receiving in Week 4 win

Jared Cook caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 4 win against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Cook hasn't been heavily targeted in the Chargers' recent games but stepped up in their Week 4 win. This was the best game of the season for Cook. He's not going to get many targets with Keenan Allen, Austin Ekeler, and Mike Williams all involved. Cook is a touchdown or bust option next week against the Browns.

Jared Cook not impressive in Chargers win

Jared Cook caught two passes for 27 yards in the Chargers Week 3 win vs the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

With Keenan Allen, Austin Ekeler, and Mike Williams dominating targets for the Chargers, Cook hasn't been able to get going. He's an afterthought in this offense. Even though the tight end landscape is rough, you can't trust Cook at this point. He should not be trusted in Week 4 against the Raiders.

Jared Cook minimized in Chargers Week 2 loss

Jared took caught three passes for 21 yards on five targets in the Chargers Week 2 loss against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Cook wasn't heavily involved in the game plan against the Cowboys. The targets are going to funnel through Allen, Williams, and Ekeler, with Cook getting the leftovers. He will be a TE2 in a tough matchup against the Chiefs.

Jared Cook racks up 56 yards in Chargers win

TE Jared Cook caught five passes for 56 yards on eight targets in the Chargers Week 1 win vs the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact

Cook was 3rd on the team in targets and had solid production. Austin Ekeler didn't record a target or catch in this game, so It's unlikely Cook will be the 3rd in targets every game. Although, Cook has been a reliable tight end for the past few years. He's a TE2 that will have some boom weeks in the Chargers offense.

Jared Cook inks one-year deal with the Chargers

TE Jared Cook signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Chargers on Thursday. The deal includes $4.5 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Cook was released by the Saints during the offseason and ultimately lands a one-year deal with the Chargers. He’ll replace Hunter Henry, who recently signed a three-year deal with the Patriots. Cook hauled in 37 receptions for 504 yards and seven touchdowns across 15 games for the Saints in 2020. The 33-year-old is reuniting with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi (former Saints QBs coach) and should be familiar with the Chargers playbook. Cook is currently 23rd among all tight ends in the latest expert consensus rankings, but expect that number to rise with the latest news.
