Jared Cook failed to reel in any of his four targets in the Rams' Week 17 loss to San Francisco.
In typical Jared Cookonian fashion. Cook's third straight unsuccessful season with the Rams ends on a 39-481-0 receiving line. Cook has gone 19 straight games without scoring a touchdown. The Rams' passing offense creates limitations, but Cook has shown too many of them himself to not be considered for offseason release. Cook is owed a $7 million base salary in 2016. Jan 3 - 8:32 PM

Jared Cook caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards in the Rams' Week 16 win over the Seahawks.

Cook predictably faded after last week's inexplicable outburst. Cook is still somehow signed through 2017, but is highly unlikely to be back at next year's scheduled $7 million salary. A restructure or pay cut is in order.

Jared Cook absorbed four of six targets for 64 yards in the Rams' Week 15 win over the Buccaneers.

The 64 yards were Cook’s most since Week 1. He’s seen six or more targets in five of his last six games. The 28-year-old is still looking for his first touchdown of 2015. Cook won’t be a recommended fantasy option against the Seahawks in Week 16.

Jared Cook caught 3-of-9 targets for 22 yards in St. Louis' Week 13 loss to the Cardinals.

The only time Cook stood out was when he committed a false start on a first half 2nd-and-13. He's off the TE2 radar.

Jared Cook hauled in four of six targets for 58 yards in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

Cook committed an embarrassing drop in the first quarter but redeemed himself later on the same drive with a 16-yard catch in tight coverage. He also had a nice block on Tavon Austin’s five-yard touchdown run. Cook hasn’t scored a touchdown all season and is barely on the TE2 radar at this point.

Jared Cook caught 4-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Ravens.

The targets were a team-high on a day Case Keenum completed just 12 passes for 136 yards. Continue to ignore Cook in 14- and 16-team leagues.

Jared Cook caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Vikings.

Cook has become a distant No. 3 or 4 option in an anemic Rams' passing attack.

Jared Cook caught 2-of-3 targets for 57 yards in the Rams' Week 8 win over the 49ers.

Cook actually did something to help the Rams on Sunday, turning an intermediate catch into a 49-yard gain and setting up a short Tavon Austin touchdown in the second quarter. Cook has taken a backseat to Austin for pass-game targets, however, and is barely on the TE2 map.

Jared Cook caught 2-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Browns.

As has become the norm with Cook, he continues to do more harm than good. After catching a 17-yard pass to get the Rams in the red zone, Cook fumbled at the end of the play at the 16-yard line and the Browns recovered. It's time for the Rams to bench or trade the most overpaid player in the league. On a team that needs to avoid mistakes, Cook seems to make many. He's a barely-there TE2 who's not worth considering at all in 12- and 14-team leagues.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher acknowledges trade interest in TE Jared Cook, but says there are no plans to deal him.

That's all good and well, but Fisher isn't exactly known for being truthful, and the Rams would have nothing to gain by admitting they're willing to trade their starting tight end. A deal is extremely unlikely. Cook is grossly overpaid, and the Rams, inconsistent as they are, aren't out of the playoff hunt. With so few weapons on offense, they probably won't be subtracting players.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports teams are interested in trading for Jared Cook.

Cook still has two years left on his contract but all his guaranteed money has already been paid, so a team could feasibly move on from him this offseason without taking a cap hit. Rams No. 2 tight end Lance Kendricks is under contract through 2018. A seventh-year veteran, Cook has reeled in just 15-of-27 targets this year for 169 yards and no touchdowns.

Jared Cook caught 1-of-6 targets for eight yards in the Rams' Week 5 loss to the Packers.

Brutally inefficient days are nothing new for Cook, though today had more to do with Nick Foles having no time more than anything else. Cook did help his cause by drawing a long DPI. Cook will be a TE2 against the Browns in Week 7.

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.

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.
