Jared Cook caught 3-of-6 targets for 22 yards in the Rams' Week 4 win over the Cardinals.
Cook dropped a short pass and wasn't able to hang onto what could have been an 11-yard touchdown. Tyrann Mathieu made a good play on the ball, but Cook has shown time and again to have a weak pair of mitts. He's a bottom-barrel TE2 with limited upside. Cook is on pace to catch just 56 balls for 644 scoreless yards. He's off the redraft map next week in Green Bay. Oct 4 - 8:32 PM

Jared Cook caught 1-of-3 targets for seven yards in St. Louis' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

One of Cook's missed connections was a late drop. A perennial tease, Cook's mediocre 2013-14 seasons mean more than his decent Weeks 1 and 2. He'll rarely be a top-18 option at tight end, though in theory he should have a better day in Week 4 against the Cardinals' leaky tight end defense.

Jared Cook caught 5-of-7 targets for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 loss to the Redskins.

Cook led the Rams in targets, but probably did more harm than good on Sunday. He muffed a couple passes and none of his pickups really meant much to the offense. His big gain of 14 yards was right before halftime as time ran out on the clock. Cook will continue to be a favorite middle-of-the-field target for Nick Foles, but he's about as inconsistent as any tight end. Cook at least gets a nice on-paper matchup with the Steelers' leaky tight-end defense in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 5:07 PM

Jared Cook caught 5-of-6 targets for 85 yards in the Rams' Week 1 win over the Seahawks.

Cook is a big-play threat down the seams and near the sidelines for the Rams, and was left wide open a couple times by Seattle. He's not your traditional tight end on the end of the line and will have his ups and downs. But Cook has the ability to put up yards, even if he's allergic to the end zone. Cook will be in the streaming conversation for Week 2's date with the Redskins.

Jared Cook caught a five-yard pass in Saturday's preseason game.

It was his lone target. The scattershot TE2 finishes the preseason with two grabs for eight yards.
Aug 29 - 11:52 PM

Jared Cook caught 3-of-7 targets for 37 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

He ended up reeling in 52 passes for 634 yards and three touchdowns on the year. Cook wraps up the second year of a five-year, $35 million contract having set a new career-high in catches, but he’s still vastly overpaid. When the Rams signed Cook they had visions of a spread offense that passed the ball. They’ve since become a run-heavy team. Cook has been asked to block much more than he imagined he would, but he’s become solid in that area. Cook will count over $8 million against the cap in 2015, but he’ll be back in St. Louis. Not strong in the red zone, Cook is as boom or bust as they come at tight end with far more busts than booms.

Jared Cook caught five passes for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

Cook flashed a bit of speed by getting around the edge on crossing patterns a couple times, but it was a standard game for the ho-hum tight end. The five catches were the most he's recorded since Week 3. Cook and the Rams finish the season at Seattle next week.

Jared Cook caught 3-of-7 targets for 22 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a brutally-ineffective game from Cook, who committed an offensive pass interference penalty, and somehow outran Shaun Hill's desperation heave with time expiring by at least 15 yards. A mistake-prone player who rarely stuffs the stat sheet, Cook isn't worth the $7 million he's due in 2015. It's possible he'll be cut loose.

Jared Cook caught four passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

He was targeted a team-high five times. Cook briefly exited the game in the first quarter after taking a head shot from FS Ryan Clark. He quickly returned and was left wide open on both scores, a 35-yarder up the seam and a one-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone. Cook has become a solid all-around player in 2014, but he's an inconsistent pass catcher. Cook is hard to justify as anything more than a TE2. He'll get the Cardinals at home in Week 15.

Jared Cook was held catch-less on one target in Week 13 against the Raiders.

Cook has quickly disappeared from the fantasy discussion since Shaun Hill took over as the Rams' quarterback.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:02:00 PM

Jared Cook (back) is probable for Week 13.

He'll be good to go Sunday against the Raiders.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 02:27:00 PM

Jared Cook (back) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

Cook will be a top-15 option against the Raiders.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 03:14:00 PM

Jared Cook (back) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Cook played through his back injury last week. The Rams are limiting him for rest. Cook is on the streaming radar for Sunday's matchup with Oakland.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 06:42:00 PM

Jared Cook caught three passes for 27 yards in Week 12 against the Chargers.

Cook was targeted a team-high nine times, and didn't appear to be hampered at all by a back issue that had him questionable on the injury report. The Chargers are tough against tight ends. Cook will be on the streaming radar against the Raiders in Week 13, but his ceiling remains low in this offense.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Jared Cook (back) is active for Week 12 against the Chargers.

As expected despite the questionable tag. Cook isn't a recommended fantasy option against the Bolts. Inactive for the Rams are LB Korey Toomer, CB Lamarcus Joyner, CB Marcus Roberson, WR Damian Williams, DT Alex Carrington, OL Brandon Washington, and OL Barrett Jones.
