Jared Cook caught five balls for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 17 loss to Seattle.
Inked to a whopping five-year, $35.11 million contract last March, Cook wound up with 51 catches for 671 yards and five touchdowns in his first season as a Ram, numbers not much different from Cook's in four years as a Titan. Although Cook is supremely gifted -- he runs like a wide receiver in the open field -- physicality and lateral agility are not parts of his game. And he will therefore likely never be a high-volume pass catcher. Cook also needs improved quarterback play. He'll only be a TE2 target in 2014 fantasy drafts. Sun, Dec 29, 2013 07:54:00 PM

Jared Cook caught two passes for 27 yards in St. Louis' Week 16 win over the Bucs.

The catches were Cook's only targets of the afternoon. The free-agent bust enters Week 17 with 46 catches for 641 yards. Due a $3 million roster bonus in March, Cook's $3 million 2014 salary is fully guaranteed.

Jared Cook caught one pass for eight yards in Week 15 versus the Saints.

Cook saw just the one target. Backup tight ends Lance Kendricks and Cory Harkey each scored touchdowns. Cook is the best player in the Rams’ passing game, so defenses can game plan for him. It’s been a disappointing first season in St. Louis for Cook. He’s merely a TE2. The Rams host the Bucs next week. Cook will see a lot of Lavonte David, Mark Barron, and Dashon Goldson.

Jared Cook caught three passes for 49 yards in the Rams' 30-10, Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Kellen Clemens was a sitting duck in the pocket and had no clue where to go with the football on numerous occasions. Cook was targeted a team-high six times. One was on Clemens' pick-six to Karlos Dansby. Cook also could have had a big gain -- and possibly long touchdown -- early in the game, but Clemens under-threw Cook after he beat Daryl Washington down field. Cook will revert back to TE2 status as part of a sputtering offense next week against the Saints.

Jared Cook says he expected more from himself this season and admits that he needs to work on some things.

"Some games you feel like you could've played better," Cook said. "I just have to improve in the areas of my play because I feel like I can help this team some more." Cook has been a fantasy disappointment, as well. He's displayed inconsistent hands and needs to play more physical. Cook has produced like a TE2 for much of the season, but he has a dream Week 14 matchup with Arizona.

Jared Cook caught three passes for 49 yards in Week 13 at San Francisco.

Cook was targeted six times on the day and dropped his first two passes. He bobbled his third before hauling it in for his first catch. It was pretty much a standard day at the office for Cook. With 75 percent of the season in the books, Cook is on pace for a 53-742-5 receiving line. He's a TE2, though Cook will get the Cardinals in Week 14. He shredded Arizona in Week 1, and the Cardinals are by far the league's worst defense when it comes to stopping tight ends.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 07:49:00 PM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in St. Louis' Week 12 win over the Bears.

The four-catch effort was Cook's first in four games, while the yards were his most since Week 1. The score was his second in three games, and fourth of the season. Cook's workload and effectiveness haven't really changed since Sam Bradford was lost for the season, leaving him as a middling TE2.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:04:00 PM

Jared Cook caught one pass for 17 yards in St. Louis' Week 10 win over the Colts.

Lance Kendricks (finger) was sidelined, but it didn't translate to a bigger day for Cook in a game where the Rams dialed up only 17 passes. At best, Cook is a mid-range RB2 in the Rams' run-obsessed offense.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 05:45:00 PM

Jared Cook caught three balls for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 9 loss to Tennessee.

Cook has been Kellen Clemens' favorite target, though this was his first score since Week 1. Consider Cook a high-end to mid-range TE2 in Week 10 against the Colts. Indianapolis has been pretty stingy in tight end defense.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Jared Cook caught three passes for 31 yards in Week 8 against Seattle.

Cook was targeted a team-high six times by check-down specialist Kellen Clemens but dropped a third-down pass and ran a lazy route on the first of Clemens' two interceptions. He looked genuinely disinterested on the play. Cook remains a TE2. He'll take on his former Titans teammates next week.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 01:07:00 AM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 33 yards in St. Louis' Week 7 loss to the Panthers.

Cook's seven targets led the team, but he still couldn't clear 45 yards for the first time since Week 1. A physical freak who isn't skilled at the finer points of the passing game, Cook appears poised to remain mired among the TE2s.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 05:50:00 PM

Jared Cook caught two passes for 45 yards in Week 6 against the Texans.

They were Cook's lone two targets on the day. He didn't do anything in the first half but ended up leading the Rams in receiving anyway. Cook's fellow tight end teammates Cory Harkey and Lance Kendricks both scored touchdowns, further maddening Cook owners. Cook remains a back-end TE1. It'd be nice to see some production soon, however. The Rams travel to Carolina next weekend.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 05:24:00 PM

Jared Cook had four catches for 45 yards in Thursday night's Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

Cook was involved in the passing game early, but had just two targets in the second half and continues to be limited by Sam Bradford's inability to consistently throw downfield. He now has 17 catches for 240 yards and two touchdowns through four weeks. Cook will remain a TE1 option for next Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Fri, Sep 27, 2013 01:13:00 AM

Jared Cook caught five passes for just 44 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Cowboys.

The Rams' offense was pathetic. They took no shots down field. Cook racked up all of his catches in the flats or on short routes over the middle. OC Brian Schottenheimer needs to open things up more with his play calling, or coach Jeff Fisher needs to let him. Cook is a back-end TE1 for the time being.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 06:31:00 PM

Jared Cook caught just one pass for ten yards in the Rams' Week 2 loss to Atlanta.

A week after posting a ridiculous 7/141/2 line against Arizona in the opener, Cook and Sam Bradford appeared to not be on the same page for much of the day. Cook could have had a 30-plus-yard gain on a third down. He was streaking down the left seam wide open, but the turf monster caught him and Cook tripped and fell to the ground. Cook saw six targets. He'll remain a TE1 next week in Dallas.
