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.

Jared Cook caught three passes for 49 yards in Week 13 at San Francisco.

Cook was targeted six times on the day and dropped his first two passes. He bobbled his third before hauling it in for his first catch. It was pretty much a standard day at the office for Cook. With 75 percent of the season in the books, Cook is on pace for a 53-742-5 receiving line. He's a TE2, though Cook will get the Cardinals in Week 14. He shredded Arizona in Week 1, and the Cardinals are by far the league's worst defense when it comes to stopping tight ends.

Jared Cook caught three balls for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 9 loss to Tennessee.

Cook has been Kellen Clemens' favorite target, though this was his first score since Week 1. Consider Cook a high-end to mid-range TE2 in Week 10 against the Colts. Indianapolis has been pretty stingy in tight end defense.

Jared Cook caught three passes for 31 yards in Week 8 against Seattle.

Cook was targeted a team-high six times by check-down specialist Kellen Clemens but dropped a third-down pass and ran a lazy route on the first of Clemens' two interceptions. He looked genuinely disinterested on the play. Cook remains a TE2. He'll take on his former Titans teammates next week.

Jared Cook caught four passes for 33 yards in St. Louis' Week 7 loss to the Panthers.

Cook's seven targets led the team, but he still couldn't clear 45 yards for the first time since Week 1. A physical freak who isn't skilled at the finer points of the passing game, Cook appears poised to remain mired among the TE2s.

Jared Cook had four catches for 45 yards in Thursday night's Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

Cook was involved in the passing game early, but had just two targets in the second half and continues to be limited by Sam Bradford's inability to throw downfield. He now has 17 catches for 240 yards and two touchdowns through four weeks and will remain a TE1 option for next Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars.

Jared Cook caught five passes for just 44 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Cowboys.

The Rams' offense was pathetic. They took no shots down field. Cook racked up all of his catches in the flats or on short routes over the middle. OC Brian Schottenheimer needs to open things up more with his play calling, or coach Jeff Fisher needs to let him. Cook is a back-end TE1 for the time being.
