Expert 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 He's scored touchdowns in two of his last three games, but Cook has finished with less than 30 receiving yards in three of his last four contests. That paints a contradictory picture of Cook's value, but it sort of makes sense for a guy who's the fourth wheel in a high-powered offense. There's a fairly wide range of outcomes for Cook every week. I have him pegged as a midrange TE2 both this week and rest of season.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Tonyan has now had five games this season with two or fewer fantasy points. However, last week was not one of those performances. Tonyan finally came through for fantasy managers that were still starting him with a 4-63-1 stat line and there's now the potential that that type of usage is here to stay for this matchup against Arizona. With Adams and Lazard out, the targets in this offense could go anywhere and we know that Rodgers and Tonyan have the chemistry to build upon. It's a risky play this week because we know that it has the potential to result in two or fewer fantasy points, but the upside is there. He can be viewed as a high-end TE2 for week eight. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Cook has scored a TD in two of his last three games, Cook is a TD dependent TE2 with low upside against a Patriots team that is 5th against fantasy tight ends.
