Jared Cook hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.
Cook came into the game on one of the best runs of his career, and he looked headed to another good game when he came up with a nice 26-yard grab in the second quarter. That was about all he could muster the rest of the way, however, as the Raiders' offense was stuck in neutral. Unlike the rest of the passing attack, Cook will be in a bounce-back spot next week against the Broncos. He will remain a solid TE1 in that matchup. Nov 19 - 8:03 PM

Jared Cook caught 8-of-9 targets for 126 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

Cook caught three passes for 59 yards on the opening drive and had over 100 yards at half. He was a matchup problem for Miami's linebackers all night. Cook led Oakland in targets and continues to be a featured part of the offense. Cook has a matchup with the Patriots after Oakland's Week 10 bye.
Nov 6 - 12:39 AM

Jared Cook caught 4-of-5 targets for 57 yards in the Raiders' Week 8 loss to the Bills.

Cook's 17-yard catch got the Raiders inside the five-yard line and set up DeAndre Washington's short receiving score. Cook has been a big part of Oakland's offense this season, recently drawing praise from Derek Carr for excelling on wide receiver-like routes. He'll be an underrated TE1 play in Week 9 at Miami.
Oct 29 - 4:43 PM

Jared Cook caught 6-of-7 targets for 107 yards in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

The 100-yard night was Cook's first as a Raider, and just the fifth of his nine-year career. Cook was making huge plays all evening, including a late defensive holding penalty he drew in the red zone with no time remaining. Seconds prior, Cook appeared to have a game-winning, 29-yard score, but was ruled down at the half-yard line. (The Raiders were then backed up by a Michael Crabtree penalty.) Producing as a reliable TE2, Cook gets the Bills for Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:36 AM

Jared Cook contributed two catches for 14 yards on three targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Cook did nothing of note, catching both of his passes in the second half. Cook’s three targets were a season-low. He’s averaged just 32 yards during Oakland’s four-game losing streak. He won’t have much streaming appeal Thursday against Kansas City.
Oct 15 - 9:01 PM

Jared Cook contributed three catches for 25 yards on six targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 5 loss to the Ravens.

Cook gave the ball away on a first-quarter fumble, which Jimmy Smith scooped up and returned for a 47-yard touchdown. He had a hard time finding daylight against Baltimore’s secondary and obviously didn’t show much chemistry with E.J. Manuel, who was filling in for an injured Derek Carr. Cook remains a weekly streaming consideration at a weak fantasy position, but hopefully you can do better.
Oct 8 - 8:51 PM

Jared Cook corralled three-of-eight targets for 46 yards Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 4 loss to the Broncos.

He tied Amari Cooper for the team lead in targets but never found much of an opening against Denver’s elite secondary. Cook came down with a 28-yard catch in the fourth quarter and had a golden opportunity to score on an end-zone target from E.J. Manuel but heard footsteps and alligator-armed it. He’ll be an acceptable streamer at home against the Ravens next week, particularly with four teams on bye.
Oct 1 - 8:47 PM

Jared Cook caught 4-of-6 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against Washington.

Cook was the only bright spot, scoring on a diving 21-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He has a 13/124/1 line through three games. Cook doesn’t have a streamable matchup against Denver in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 12:21 AM

Jared Cook is not listed on the Raiders' Week 3 injury report.

Cook was "limited" early in the week by a shoulder injury, but he'll be out there against the Redskins. Washington was creamed by tight ends in Weeks 1-2.
Sep 22 - 3:54 PM

Jared Cook (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

The Raiders are managing their 30-year-old tight end's reps. Cook will be a borderline TE1 for a gorgeous Sunday night matchup with the Redskins.
Sep 21 - 7:10 PM

Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Cook looked healthy in Week 2, snaring four-of-six targets for 25 yards in a blowout win over the Jets. This could simply be a case of the Raiders managing his practice reps. Regardless, he should be ready to roll for Sunday Night Football against the Redskins.
Sep 20 - 7:20 PM

Jared Cook caught 4-of-6 targets for 25 yards against the Jets in Week 2.

He was in a great spot against a secondary that doesn't defend tight ends very well, but he couldn't put up a big play. Cook hasn't exactly been a reliable guy over his career and he's been about as advertised with this game and the 56-yard Week 1. He's more of a mid-level TE2 in most matchups, including Week 3 against the Redskins.
Sep 17 - 7:26 PM

Jared Cook caught 5-of-5 targets for 56 yards in the Raiders' Week 1 win over the Titans.

It was a solid Raiders debut for Cook, who more than once ran completely free. He's going to get some easy looks in a loaded offense, but has always struggled with consistency. It's hard to see Cook rising above mid-range TE2 status.
Sep 10 - 5:36 PM

Jared Cook caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Raiders' third preseason game.

He is entrenched as the Raiders' starting tight end after signing a two-year, $10.6 million offseason deal. Cook is a perennial fantasy underachiever, but his mere field presence elevates an offense and adds a new dimension to the Raiders' passing attack as an athletic seam stretcher. Cook is best viewed as a high-variance best-ball fantasy pick and potential in-season streamer.
Aug 26 - 10:49 PM

The San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur reports Derek Carr has been targeting Jared Cook "often" during camp.

Oakland targeted their tight ends on just 14 percent of their attempts last season, the third-lowest rate in the league. "We haven’t really gotten our tight-end position going as much as I’d like," coach Jack Del Rio said. "I think you’re going to see a team that can utilize the tight-end position more in their offensive plan and attack." Carr also is happy with the new addition, saying Cook's speed gives the team more versatility. Going into his ninth season, fantasy players have learned Cook's preseason hype never matches his regular season performance, but he at least offers some intrigue as a late-round flier in best ball formats.
