Jared Cook TE STL 18 Days

Cook caught 4-of-11 targets for 74 yards in Monday's 31-17 loss to the 49ers.

Cook's inefficient outing was largely due to Austin Davis' lack of accuracy, and the veteran tight end had a 21-yard gain called back on a dubious offensive pass interference penalty that changed the course of the game. While it may have been a frustrating night for Cook, his continued involvement in the offense is promising for owners. He has 30 targets over the last three games, with a team-high 42 on the season. He also has at least four receptions and 44 receiving yards in every game, but has yet to find the end zone. Week 7 will bring a tough home matchup with the vaunted Seahawks defense.

Cook was Austin Davis' favorite target in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys, registering seven catches for 75 yards.

Cook is still without a touchdown on the season, but he did have his best game of 2014. He'll typically get you four to six catches for about 50 yards a game, and is bound to catch a TD pass one of these days.

Cook tallied four receptions for 46 yards in a 19-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Sunday's output is the average game he has had with St. Louis so far, hauling in three to five passes a game for about 50 yards. The Rams offense has only scored once in two games, and while Cook is consistent, there are likely better tight end options out there.

Cook caught four passes for 56 yards in a 34-6 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Cook came to St. Louis with high expectations last year, but Sunday's game is fairly indicative of what he'll be for fantasy purposes. He may have a big game or two, but will be a middling option most weeks, especially with the uncertainty at quarterback.

Cook is not playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

Cooks had a quiet preseason to go along with reports of an up-and-down training camp. He'll again have to make due without Sam Bradford (torn ACL), but the Rams upgraded their backup from Kellen Clemens to Shaun Hill, and also seem to have improved at wide receiver. While those changes could help Cook become more efficient with his targets, it's only fair to point out that his own performance was a big part of last season's post-Week 1 disappointment.

Jared Cook caught one pass for eight yards in Week 15 versus the Saints.

Cook saw just the one target. Backup tight ends Lance Kendricks and Cory Harkey each scored touchdowns. Cook is the best player in the Rams' passing game, so defenses can game plan for him. It's been a disappointing first season in St. Louis for Cook. He's merely a TE2. The Rams host the Bucs next week. Cook will see a lot of Lavonte David, Mark Barron, and Dashon Goldson.

Jared Cook caught three passes for 49 yards in the Rams' 30-10, Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Kellen Clemens was a sitting duck in the pocket and had no clue where to go with the football on numerous occasions. Cook was targeted a team-high six times. One was on Clemens' pick-six to Karlos Dansby. Cook also could have a big gain -- and possibly long touchdown -- early in the game, but Clemens under-threw Cook after he beat Daryl Washington down field. Cook will revert back to TE2 status as part of a sputtering offense next week against the Saints.

Jared Cook says he expected more from himself this season and admits that he needs to work on some things.

"Some games you feel like you could've played better," Cook said. "I just have to improve in the areas of my play because I feel like I can help this team some more." Cook has been a fantasy disappointment, as well. He's displayed inconsistent hands and needs to play more physical. Cook has produced like a TE2 for much of the season, but he has a dream Week 14 matchup with Arizona.
