Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Panthers are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Cook is a boom / bust TE1 at home this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He returned in Week 5, only to see three targets for the second consecutive game. His target totals from his first four games are 7, 5, 3, 3. That doesn't inspire confidence when you want when starting a tight end, especially knowing Michael Thomas is returning to the lineup. The Panthers have allowed just 4.70 yards per target to tight ends through six games, which ranks as the second-lowest number in football. It's not due to a lack of volume, either, as they've faced 47 targets (seventh-most) and allowed just two touchdowns. All in all, it amounts to just 1.34 PPR points per target, which is the fourth-lowest number in the league. Cook should be considered a touchdown-or-bust TE2 until he gets more involved in the offense, though Emmanuel Sanders' role has grown to the point where that may not happen.
