Jared Cook caught three passes for 25 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over Seattle.
Cook was targeted just three times in what was a promising matchup on paper. He lost a red-zone look to No. 2 TE Lance Kendricks, who turned it into a four-yard touchdown. That's become the norm for Cook. He's a mid-range TE2, even as Austin Davis' No. 2 option in the pass game. Oct 19 - 5:38 PM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 74 yards in the Rams' Week 6 loss to the 49ers.

Cook was targeted a team-high 11 times. He was inches and a whistle away from having a monster night. Cook had a 21-yard catch called back due to a questionable offensive pass interference penalty. And later Austin Davis overshot Cook for what would have been an easy touchdown. Cook flashed at times on Monday, but he leaves a lot to be desired on a weekly basis. He's a mid-range TE2.
Oct 14 - 12:17 AM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 44 yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss at Philadelphia.

Cook saw 10 targets, but many of them were uncatchable throw-aways as Austin Davis was under heavy pressure early. Still, the inefficiency is what we've come to expect from Cook as a guy that consistently fails to make the big play. This came even with top Eagles cover LB Mychal Kendricks (calf) sidelined. Through four games, Cook is on pace for 76 catches, 884 yards and zero touchdowns. He'll be a TE2 against the 49ers in Week 6.
Oct 5 - 4:55 PM

Jared Cook had seven catches for 75 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to Dallas.

Cook had a team-high nine targets and remains the clear No. 2 option behind Brian Quick. He dropped a wide open touchdown in the fourth quarter that likely cost the Rams the game. Cook has been more consistent this season, but remains a middling TE2. He isn't a must-hold with St. Louis on a bye in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 6:31 PM

Jared Cook caught all four of his targets for 46 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over Tampa Bay.

It was a standard day at the office for Cook, who will typically flirt with 4-5 catches and 40-50 yards. He's the clear No. 2 option in the Rams' passing "attack" behind Brian Quick, but the St. Louis offense can't support more than one receiver. Cook is a middling TE2. He has a favorable matchup next week vs. Dallas.
Sep 14 - 9:11 PM

Jared Cook caught four passes for 56 yards in the Rams' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

Cook was targeted eight times on the day, finishing one target behind Brian Quick for the team lead. While Quick did most of his work in the deep part of the field, Cook saw most of the short-to-intermediate looks. The 4-56 receiving line should be what we expect most weeks out of Cook. He's the second or third option in the passing game and a middle-of-the-road TE2.
Sep 7 - 5:43 PM

Jared Cook caught 1-of-3 targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

One of Cook's missed targets was a drop. He has three catches for 42 yards through three preseason games. Cook remains an integral part of the Rams' offense, but his inconsistency makes him little more than a mid-range TE2 for fantasy purposes.
Aug 24 - 12:33 AM

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:29:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 09:34:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 08:01:00 PM

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.
