Cook has been great over the second half of the season and he was one yard shy of a 100-yard game against the Panthers the first time out. He has a great chance to get close to 100 yards again and continues to be one of the top TEs in fantasy.Howard is seeing steady targets, but they have't resulted in a ton of success. That could change this week, with the Falcons being decent against the run. This could lead to Tampa passing even more near the goal line, and Howard is their best red zone weapon left. He is a low end TE1 this week, based on his potential in this matchup.
