Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's fading into the background over the last three weeks, as he's failed to see more than three targets in each of those games, and he's caught just three ball for 36 yards in all three games combined. You think that's bad enough? Well, how about the fact that rookie Adam Trautman actually out-snapped Cook 32-25 in last week's game with Hill under center. Is it a changing of the guard? Cook has actually played 26 or less snaps in each of the last three weeks, so it's probably best to just move on. The Broncos have allowed just 1.68 PPR points per target to tight ends, which ranks as the 11th-lowest number in football, so there's not a whole lot of reason to even contemplate him.
