Cook has exceeded my expectations each of the past two seasons and he's still producing at 34 years old! He now steps into an offense that has a huge hole at the TE position following Hunter Henry's departure and a QB that is only going to grow from here on out. Cook's age is going to play a huge factor in his ADP, but if you want to wait on TE and grab Cook with one of your last picks, he's got an excellent chance of returning that value in this situation. My Very Early Projection: 43-596-5 receiving.

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.
