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. Dec 4 - 4:26 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.
Nov 29 - 12:27 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.
Nov 21 - 1:31 AM

Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Redskins.

It's Cook's first game since Week 3. He'll likely see limited snaps coming off a multi-game layoff. The Packers inactives are RB Christine Michael, CB Damarious Randall, LB Jake Ryan, OG T.J. Lang, C/G JC Tretter, LB Jayrone Elliott, and DT Christian Ringo.
Nov 20 - 7:14 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Jared Cook (ankle, questionable) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 11 game against the Redskins.

It will be his first appearance since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 3. Cook's return was widely expected after putting in a full week of practice. With so many mouths to feed in Green Bay, it's unlikely Cook will emerge as a realistic fantasy option at any point this season.
Nov 20 - 8:35 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky considers Jared Cook (ankle) likely to play Sunday night at Washington.

Cook has dealt with foot and ankle problems essentially since the Packers signed him in March. He suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Week 3 and has not played since. Cook's return should cut into ineffective Richard Rodgers' snaps and give Green Bay's offense a vertical presence it has largely lacked this season. Cook remains unlikely to be of much fantasy-league assistance.
Nov 18 - 1:14 PM

Updating an earlier report, Jared Cook (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

That puts him on track to play Sunday against Washington. Cooks hasn't seen the field since suffering a badly sprained ankle in Week 3. His fantasy importance is minimal at best, but Cook's return could cut into Richard Rodgers' snaps.
Nov 16 - 5:11 PM

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

Coach Mike McCarthy called it a "starting point" for Cook, who hasn't played since Week 3. Cook got in a round of limited sessions last week as well and is tentatively expected to return this week against the Redskins.
Nov 16 - 12:41 PM

Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) is inactive for Week 10 against the Titans.

Cook will return in Week 11.
Nov 13 - 11:43 AM

Jared Cook (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 10.

Cook returned to practice this week and is eyeballing a Week 11 return. Richard Rodgers will remain Green Bay's primary tight end this week in Nashville.
Nov 11 - 4:06 PM

Jared Cook (ankle) practiced again on Thursday.

He practiced in full pads for the first time since Week 3, though he was officially "limited." It gives him a chance to return Sunday against the Titans. If Cooks plays, he'll be a bottom-barrel TE2.
Nov 10 - 1:45 PM

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

"We're going to cut them loose today," coach Mike McCarthy said of Cook and James Starks (knee) on Wednesday. Cook has been out since Week 3 and wasn't a fantasy factor before getting hurt. He's merely a TE2 until proven otherwise. There are a ton of mouths to feed in this up-and-down offense.
Nov 9 - 12:50 PM

Jared Cook (ankle) is out for Week 9 against the Colts.

It will be his fifth straight absence. Cook resumed practicing on a limited basis this week and should have a good chance to return next week against Tennessee. Richard Rodgers will draw another start at tight end.
Nov 4 - 4:37 PM

Jared Cook (ankle) resumed practicing on Thursday.

Cook has been sidelined since Week 3. He appeared to do very little in Thursday's session. It's likely an effort to get him on track for Week 10, not this Sunday. Cook will have extremely limited TE2 appeal whenever he finally returns.
