NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the Packers want to re-sign free agent TE Jared Cook.
Cook missed six weeks with a high-ankle sprain, but was a big part of Green Bay’s offense down the stretch. He averaged 55 yards and four catches over his final 10 games (including playoffs). Cook is one of the Packers’ top priorities. Jan 28 - 6:10 PM

Aaron Rodgers said impending free agent Jared Cook "needs to be near the top of the priority list" for the Packers this offseason.

Cook played on a one-year, $2.75 million deal this past season and called it the most fun he's had in his eight-year career. Both sides will likely be open to working something out. Cook averaged 12.6 yards per catch and scored three touchdowns after coming on following a mid-season high-ankle sprain.

Jared Cook caught 7-of-12 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Playing on a one-year, $2.75 million contract, 29-year-old Cook had something resembling a breakout, catching 30 passes for 377 yards in 10 games. His numbers would have been much better had he not missed a whopping six games with a high-ankle sprain. Praised as an essential element of the Pack’s offense by Aaron Rodgers, Cook consistently made plays up the seam. Headed back to free agency, Cook, of course, has never been consistent, and turns 30 in April. The Pack will undoubtedly try to re-sign him, but Cook’s ever-rumored "upside" could entice a team to overpay on the open market.

Jared Cook corralled six-of-11 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Cook struggled in the first half, grabbing just two catches for 20 yards and failing to reel in his lone end-zone target. But Aaron Rodgers never lost faith in his tight end and Cook rewarded him with a second half for the ages. The Cowboys bit on play-action, leaving Cook all alone on his three-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. But Cook’s biggest contribution to this game was a magnificent 36-yard catch with three seconds left in the fourth quarter. Rodgers was falling backwards as he threw a missile down the left sideline that Cook caught to set up Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal. Thanks to Cook’s heroics, the Packers are headed to the NFC Championship for the second time in the last three seasons.
Jan 15 - 8:35 PM

Jared Cook caught 5-of-9 targets for 48 yards in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

Cook was a noticeably bigger part of Green Bay's early-game plan and stayed heavily involved following Jordy Nelson's second-quarter injury. It was still a tale of missed opportunities. The Packers went to Cook twice on their first drive, but a deep shot down the left sideline was covered well by SS Landon Collins. Cook got wide open for a big gain on Green Bay’s final drive of the first half, but he dropped the pass on contact. Cook has now drawn at least eight targets in three of the Packers' last four games. Particularly if Jordy can't go, Cook will continue to be a featured part of Aaron Rodgers' passing game next week in Dallas.
Jan 8 - 8:10 PM

Jared Cook caught 4-of-8 passes for 56 yards in Week 17 against Detroit.

Cook has been more involved the past few weeks with 13 catches and 178 yards over his last three games. He's given the Packers a solid presence over the middle. Cook has a low floor, but is a high-upside DFS play for Green Bay’s playoff matchup with the Giants.
Jan 2 - 12:37 AM

Jared Cook caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Packers' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

One of Cook's missed connections was an "incompletion" where most other pass catchers would have gotten two feet in bounds. Aaron Rodgers then got blown up, a play that wouldn't have happened if Cook could do the little things right. Cook will be a DFS shot in the dark against the Lions next week.

Jared Cook caught 6-of-8 targets for 85 yards in Green Bay's Week 15 win over the Bears.

The Bears didn't bother to cover Cook before halftime, letting him catch five passes for 77 yards. He proceeded to do nothing after the break. It's no secret that Cook can stretch the seam, but that's all he can do. He remains little more than a desperation TE2 in fantasy leagues.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he "feels like" Jared Cook (chest) will play Week 15.

Cook the second half of last week's win over the Seahawks, but it sounded like it was more precautionary. Cook will be a TE2 against the Bears.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 02:58:00 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports "there's a good chance" Jared Cook (chest) will play this week.

Cook missed the second half of the Packers' win over the Seahawks with a lung contusion, but Demovsky reports he was held out for "precautionary reasons." Cook has not been consistent enough to be a realistic fantasy option against the Bears, but the Packers will be happy to have him on the field.

Jared Cook exited Week 14 against the Seahawks with a chest injury.

Cook came down hard on the cold turf after leaping for a catch in the second quarter. He left to the locker room early before halftime and was ruled out after the break. Richard Rodgers will take back over as the lead tight end.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 06:14:00 PM

Jared Cook caught 3-of-4 targets for 19 yards Week 13 against the Texans.

Cook came out of the gate hot, catching two quick passes including a third-down conversion on the first drive, but that was the extent of his contributions until the fourth quarter. Cook will have some big games in this offense, but he is impossible to trust week to week. He can be left on the wire.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:26:00 PM

Jared Cook caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in the Packers' Week 12 win over the Eagles.

It's a far cry from his 6-105-1 line last week against the Redskins. This is what we get with Cook. He'll have a big game here and there and will surround them with a bunch of duds. He doesn't have a great Week 13 spot against Houston.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 12:27:00 AM

Jared Cook played 43-of-70 (61%) snaps Sunday night against the Redskins.

Cook turned in easily his best day as a Packer, catching 6-of-11 targets for 105 yards. Because he is Jared Cook, he also dropped a walk-in touchdown and fumbled with the Packers driving late. Cook has routinely flopped after big games throughout his career, but this type of game is exactly why Green Bay signed him this offseason. They should keep trying to feed him the ball. Cook will be a thoughts-and-prayers streamer even in a tough matchup against the Eagles on Monday night.

Jared Cook caught 6-of-11 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Redskins.

Cook led the Packers in receiving in his first appearance since Week 3. He burned Redskins S Donte Whitner for two 20-plus yard catches and scored on a six-yard pass in the slot. Cook had multiple drops and wasn't on the same page with Aaron Rodgers on a wide open end-zone target. He also killed Green Bay's comeback with a late fumble. Cook is going to be a popular pickup this week, but this could end up his best game.
