Chicago is 20th against fantasy tight ends, Cook could be a TE2 option with TE1 upside this week on the road. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Cook was bad through four weeks, but he has had back-to-back productive games that have resulted in touchdowns. The matchup this week is clearly bad, but with Cook emerging as a red zone threat on the Saints, he has the opportunity for a touchdown every week.Even with the passing game picking up recently, Rudolph has remained irrelevant in fantasy.
