TE - NO
Week 17 Outlook
Jared Cook hauled in five of seven targets for 28 yards and a fumble in Sunday's Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
Cook had a pretty normal game for his standards, but a crushing hit caused a fumble in the third quarter that the Bucs quickly turned into a touchdown, pulling the game out of reach for the Saints. Although Cook was able to play 15 games this year after just 14 in 2019, he still saw dips in targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns. He'll head into 2021 as an unrestricted free agent.
Jared Cook tied for a team-high seven targets but only hauled in four for 40 yards in Sunday's playoff win over the Bears.
The seven targets were a great opportunity for Cook as he only hit that number twice during the regular season. In both of those regular season games, he logged 80 yards or scored a touchdown. He failed to do either on Sunday as Michael Thomas and Latavius Murray snagged both of Drew Brees's touchdown throws. Given the teams that will be in the playoffs next week, Cook makes for a safe but boring tight end option in DFS lineups.
Saints TE Jared Cook caught 4-of-5 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Panthers.
Cook has now logged 82 yards or scored a touchdown in four of his past five games. He gets a terrific opportunity for a monster game next week against a Bears defense that has been lit up by enemy tight ends all season.
Saints TE Jared Cook caught 3-of-4 passes for 82 yards in Friday's Week 16 win over the Vikings
While Cook did not score, he had a solid outing in the yardage category, something we only seem to see with Drew Brees throwing. Cook has a terrific Week 17 matchup to put together a complete game entering postseason play versus the Panthers.
Saints TE Jared Cook caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.
Cook was set up for a monster game. He had Drew Brees in, Michael Thomas out, and a solid matchup. However, Cook did not do much. Cook has now registered seven straight games with fewer than three catches and 37 yards. While he scored in two of his past three games, if Cook does not find the end zone, he will likely bust.
