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.

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.

Jared Cook (back) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Chargers.

Wed, Nov 19, 2014 06:42:00 PM

Jared Cook caught three passes for 19 yards in the Rams' Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Cook was targeted five times. Owners who streamed Cook were likely banking on garbage time. With the Rams pulling off the 22-7 upset win, the Rams were extremely run-heavy in the second half. Cook won't be a fantasy option against San Diego in Week 12.
