Cook (wrist) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

More on Cook's status Thursday, but he could simply be managing his practice reps on the heels of a bounce-back effort in Week 14 against the Chiefs, in which the tight end saw action on 89 percent of the Raiders' snaps on offense, en route to logging five catches on six targets for 75 yards and a TD.

Cook caught five passes on six targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Cook led the Raiders in receiving with 75 yards and caught quarterback Derek Carr's lone touchdown pass with time winding down in the fourth quarter. The tight end has now found the end zone just twice all season, but Sunday's performance was a solid bounce-back effort following a three-week stretch in which he notched four total receptions for 47 yards on 15 targets. He'll look to stay on track in Week 15 against a Cowboys defense that ranks near the middle of the pack against tight ends this year.

Cook hauled in just one of five targets for nine yards during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cook entered Sunday's contest harnessing higher expectations than usual with starting wide receivers Amari Cooper (concussion/ankle) and Michael Crabtree (suspension) both sidelined, but the veteran tight end failed to capitalize against a vulnerable Giants defense as he caught just 20 percent of his targets from quarterback Derek Carr. Cook was evaluated for a brief moment in the medical tent on the Raiders' sideline, but was still able to log 50 out of a possible 65 offensive snaps. Fellow tight end Clive Walford racked up four catches on as many targets for 57 yards after logging just three total catches throughout the team's first 11 games of the season, resulting in a somewhat unexpected setback to Cook's potential fantasy value. Walford's breakout performance shouldn't impact Cook's normal role as the clear-cut starter at tight end moving forward, but likely having both Cooper and Crabtree back in the lineup could translate to a slightly lesser target share for Cook in Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cook is expected to be a primary target for quarterback Derek Carr in Sunday's game against the Giants, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With two 100-plus-yard receiving games on his ledger this season and five or more targets in the last five games, Cook had already been enjoying a sizable presence in the Raiders' passing attack, but his role will likely only be more amplified Sunday with starting wide receivers Michael Crabtree (suspension) and Amari Cooper (concussion/ankle) both sidelined. Further aiding Cook's fantasy outlook is the Giants' ineptitude in covering tight ends this season -- Big Blue has surrendered touchdowns to tight ends in nine of their 11 games. All that points to Cook being an elite fantasy option in Week 13, with his ownership rate likely to be high in DFS contests for the reasons mentioned.

Cook caught just one of five targets for one yard during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Cook has now logged just three receptions on 10 targets for 37 yards in two games since the Raiders' bye week, coming on the heels of an impressive performance against the Dolphins in Week 9 when he racked up 126 yards on eight catches. He could see an uptick in looks from quarterback Derek Carr in Week 13 against the Giants, however, as top receivers Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) and Michael Crabtree aren't locks to suit up at this point.

Cook caught two passes on five targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 33-8 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off his best performance of the year in which he racked up 126 yards on eight receptions against the Dolphins prior to the Raiders' bye week, Cook fell back to earth in Week 11 despite Derek Carr being forced to attempt 49 passes. Cook did play a role in the Raiders' longest play of the day, connecting with Carr on a 26-yard completion during the second quarter. Cook will look to find the end zone for just the second time all season in Week 12 against Denver.

Cook caught eight of nine targets for 126 yards during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Cook was having his way with the Dolphins defense in the early goings, catching all six of his targets for 111 yards in the first two quarters. However, it seemed Miami made some adjustments at halftime since Cook was held to just one catch on three targets for 15 yards from then on. Regardless, Cook finished with his highest receiving output since Week 1 of his 2013 campaign with the Rams and has now seen at least five targets in all but one game this season. That sort of consistent workload isn't all that common, especially at tight end, which makes Cook one of the safer options at his position going forward.

Cook hauled in four of five targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 34-14 loss to Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Like much of Oakland's offense, Cook made huge strides last Thursday against Kansas City only to return back to earth on Sunday. In fairness, on an Oakland offense that has been inconsistent for much of the season, Cook has been among Derek Carr's more reliable options with at least four catches in five of eight games, including back-to-back weeks. It might seem peculiar that such an athletic, big-bodied target has scored just once this season, but snagging touchdowns has never been Cook's strong suit, his career high is just five in a season.

Cook brought in six of seven targets for 107 yards in Thursday's 31-30 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end appeared to momentarily be the hero when he brought in a contested 29-yard reception with 23 seconds remaining that was initially ruled a touchdown. However, Cook was ruled down at the 1-yard line upon replay review, setting up a heart-stopping game-ending sequence in which the Raiders finally prevailed on Michael Crabtree's two-yard touchdown reception on the last of three untimed downs. The 30-year-old Cook established new season highs in both receptions and yardage with Thursday's effort, which marked his first time eclipsing the century mark since Week 11 of last season. He'll look to build on the performance versus the Bills in a Week 8 matchup.

Cook nabbed two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Cook has yet to improve week-to-week in terms of catches thus far this season and saw his season low in receptions, targets, and yards on Sunday. The free-agent acquisition was supposed to add another dimension to an Oakland offense that was among the league's best last season, but the team has taken a tumble, averaging just over 13 points per game during its four-game slide. As a result, there isn't much to hang your hat on in Oakland at the moment.
