Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I've been saying that Cook was overrated, though the matchup last week was one he should've dominated. That didn't happen as he finished with two catches for 37 yards in a game Brees threw for 370 yards and touchdowns. The Rams did allow the third-most yardage to tight ends (right behind the Texans), including 13.44 yards per reception, which was also the third highest mark in the league. They only allowed five touchdowns to the position, but you don't want to chase those with Cook, who has never scored more than six touchdowns in his 11-year career. The aging Greg Olsen was targeted seven times against them last week, finishing with four catches for 36 yards in a game Cam Newton was somewhat off. Knowing Cook destroyed the Rams secondary for 9/180/0 last year is definitely a good thing, even if it was with a different team. He should be put back into lineups as a low-end TE1 who comes with a lot of upside this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
There's too many mouths to feed on the New Orleans offense, which severely limits the upside of Cook. However, the Rams were in the bottom third against TEs last season and it is his former team from awhile ago, so it's as good of a week as he will get this season. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cook was not targeted enough in Week 1, but that is only one game. He is still in the TE1 discussion, despite a bad season opener.
