Jared Cook TE STL 6 Days

Cook was targeted seven times in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Giants, finishing with five catches for 41 yards.

Same old, same old for Cook, who rarely surprises with his statistical production. His five catches were his most since Week 3.

Cook caught 3-of-8 targets for 22 yards in Thursday's 12-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Cook, along with Stedman Bailey and Kenny Britt, was one of three St. Louis players to receive either eight or nine targets. The other two guys did more with their chances, as Cook turned in a dud for the fourth time in his last five games. Though he showed last week that he's capable of the occasional big outing, Cook has only caught more than four passes on one occasion this season.

Cook had four catches on five targets for 61 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington.

An excellent bounce back performance for Cook, who failed to catch the lone pass thrown his way in Week 13 against the Raiders. Cook had only one touchdown coming into Sunday's game, which came back in Week 10 against the Cardinals, who happen to be the Rams' opponent in Week 15.

Cook (back) failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 52-0 win over the Raiders.

Getting one target was quite surprising for Cook's fantasy owners, as nine passes were thrown his way just a week ago against the Chargers. However, he's never been a great upside play, and he has only one touchdown on the season, making him a very limited fantasy option.

Cook (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Oakland, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Cook was targeted nine times (while catching three passes for 27 yards) in Week 12, but with just 46 receiving yards over his last two games and just one TD in 11 games overall, he's a hit-or-miss option at the tight end position.

Cook (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Cook practiced all week, including full practices Thursday and Friday, so he ought to be at or close to 100 percent health. Cook has been regularly targeted all year, but with just one touchdown and just 37 receptions on 70 targets, he's not one of the league's more efficient tight ends.

Cook (back) was a full practice participant Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Owner of 14 targets over the last two games, Cook has clearly been considered by Shaun Hill in his return to a starting gig. If the duo's chemistry improves -- they've only made six connections during that span -- Cook could regain relevance in Week 13 against a Raiders defense that has yielded 12.2 YPC and three touchdowns to tight ends in the past three tilts.

Cook (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Rams' official site reports.

Cook's usage has ramped up with Shaun Hill under center the past two games, but the tight end has failed to do much with 14 targets, recording six receptions for 46 yards. If Cook continues to earn such a substantial workload, though, an outburst could soon come to pass.

Cook (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Cook will play through his injury, but he's clearly banged-up, and the Chargers have been pretty stingy against the pass this season. Use him if you need him, but temper your expectations.

Cook (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.

It sounds like Cook's back is a legitimate threat to keep him out of this game, but the good news is he logged two limited practices to close out the week. If Cook sits, Lance Kendricks should see a decent promotion.
