Jared Cook TE STL 3 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.

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.
