Jared Cook signs 2-year deal with Saints

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Saints have agreed to terms with tight end Jared Cook on a two-year deal worth $15.5 million.

Fantasy Impact

The deal includes $8 million guaranteed in 2019, so Cook will be out there catching passes from Drew Brees in Week 1. Some would say that the upgrade from Derek Carr to Brees should promote even more production, but don't forget that Cook played with Aaron Rodgers before he went to Oakland. Despite high expectations for the physically gifted tight end, 2018 was the first time in his 10 years in the league where he topped 800 yards. He's still yet to score more than six touchdowns in any season, so don't go selling the farm to acquire Cook in dynasty or redraft leagues. The Saints did have a clear void at the position, so he's going to be targeted, but with Brees' pass attempts dipping the last few years while they have a much-improved defense, it's unlikely we see Cook get close to the 101 targets he had with the Raiders last year. He should be considered a low-end TE1 in redraft formats despite the upgrade at quarterback.

Jared Cook close to deal with Saints

Jared Cook is reportedly close to a new deal with the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

This is great news for Cook owners as he'll likely step in for the retired Ben Watson in a system that has been TE-friendly in the past. While Brees spreads the ball around, Cook should get attention in the red zone and down the middle of the field consistently in a high-flying offense. The signing would again put Cook firmly on the TE1 radar entering 2019 fantasy drafts.
