Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Carolina has been surprisingly tough on opposing pass-catchers this season, but this game is shaping up to be on of attrition for New Orleans, who will be without Mike Thomas and Manny Sanders. Cook figures to see his role grow significantly here, and he should be played as a top-12 option.After scoring last week, Thomas will look to keep the good times rolling in a great matchup with Dallas's barely-there defense. Stream as needed.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cook was coming off an injury in week five and still managed to make an impact. After a full week of rest, Cook should be ready to go and can be plugged in as a low-end TE1 based on his scoring upside every single week.Thomas was able to reel in a great catch at the back of the end zone last week, but he's still not seeing enough targets to be considered a reliable option. He's a touchdown-dependent TE2.
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.Can there be efficiency for Thomas under Kyle Allen? As odd as it sounds, he totaled a season-high 42 yards on just four targets last week, including his second touchdown of the season. The downside is that his four targets accounted for just a 9.5 percent target share in Week 6, his lowest mark on the season. The Cowboys have allowed 7.21 yards per target to the tight end position, which is right around the league average, but have played some questionable competition. The best tight end they've played was Hayden Hurst, who totaled 5/72/1 on eight targets. Unfortunately, Thomas belongs in the questionable competition conversation, as there's certainly concerns about a player who hasn't topped 42 yards despite seeing the fifth-most targets (35) among tight ends, especially considering they've cut back his workload a bit (four targets in each of the last three games). Thomas is not the worst option as a streamer considering he does have a four-target floor, but there's not much upside here.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Panthers are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Cook is a boom / bust TE1 at home this week.
