Jared Cook makes five grabs, Lance Kendricks gets fifth TD


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook caught five of seven targets for 41 yards in the Week 16 home loss to the Giants. But it was fellow tight end Lance Kendricks who found the end zone, scoring on a 23-yard catch down the seam in the third quarter.

Kendricks, who had two receptions for 35 yards, is up to five touchdowns this season, two more than Cook. This despite the fact that Cook has been targeted 91 times -- 55 more than Kendricks.

They'll both visit Seattle in Week 17.


Rams backup pass catchers do little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Rams backup pass catchers did little Week 15 against the Cardinals.

Tight end Jared Cook came up with three catches, gaining 22 yards. Cory Harkey had just one reception, but finished with 21 yards. Tavon Austin pulled in two balls, gaining 14 yards. He also gained 8 rushing yards on his only attempt of the night. Tight end Lance Kendricks had one catch, finishing with 10 yards.

The group will hope for more Week 16 against the Giants. 


Jared Cook too inconsistent to trust


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) So tight end Jared Cook caught two touchdown passes Week 14 at Tampa Bay, leading the Rams with 61 yards on four catches. Awesome. That's the kind of performance I was hoping for when he averaged 8.4 targets over the team's first five games.

But here's the problem: He's averaged just 4.3 targets over the team's last eight games, including five in Week 14. To put it bluntly, that's not good. Jermaine Gresham has averaged 5.1 in his 13 games this season.

And it's not like that number has improved all that much with the switch to Shaun Hill at quarterback. Cook's five targets in Week 14 were basically on par with Hill's previous three starts. So then, what are the odds of him scoring another two touchdowns if he's getting only five looks a game?

What about him scoring just one? He had only one all season prior to Week 14, and you know Stedman Bailey isn't going to be as quiet every week as he was against the Redskins, getting just two targets.


Rams TE Jared Cook hauls in two touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook was the offensive star of the team's 24-0 win at Washington, catching four passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns. He entered the game with one score this season.

Cook hauled in a 35-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He left the game to be evaluated for a concussion, but returned and secured a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Cook tied for the team lead with five targets. He'll play the Cardinals on Thursday.


Rams TE Jared Cook returns to game, records 35-yard TD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook returned to Sunday's game at Washington in the second quarter after being evaluated for a concussion in the first quarter. Cook made quite the impact upon his returning, hauling in a 35-yard touchdown catch to give St. Louis a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Rams TE Jared Cook leaves game in first quarter Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook left Sunday's game at Washington in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion following a hit from Ryan Clark on an incomplete pass. Clark was flagged for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless player.

Cook had one catch for 16 yards before getting hurt.


Kenny Britt, Jared Cook among Rams cleared Week 13

Also suiting up for St. Louis are cornerback E.J.

Rams list 14 players on final injury report for Oakland game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The Rams unveiled a lengthy injury report which included 14 players on the list for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Rookie cornerback Marcus Roberson (ankle) was unable to practice all week and was the only player on the report ruled as doubtful. Defensive end Eugene Sims missed practice all week due to a death in the family, but is expected to play, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He was deemed as probable. Defensive back Lamarcus Joyner (groin) and defensive tackle Alex Carrington (thigh) are questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were designated as probable: Center Scott Wells (rest), defensive end Robert Quinn (rest) and guard Davin Joseph (rest), linebacker James Laurinaitis (ankle), wide receiver Kenny Britt (back), cornerback E.J.

Jared Cook produces 27 yards on nine targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook tied for the team lead with nine targets, but mustered just three catches for 27 yards Sunday. He remains stuck on one touchdown this season.

Cook plays the Raiders in Week 13.


Rams TE Jared Cook ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook, who was questionable with a back injury, is active for Sunday's game at San Diego. Cook has 34 catches for 446 yards and a touchdown this season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Six Rams have been deemed questionable or probable for the Sunday game against the host Chargers.

The questionables are tight ends Jared Cook (back) and Cory Harkey (quad) and long snapper Jake McQuaide (back).

Big plays propel Rams TE Jared Cook Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook led the way Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Cook only caught two passes, but made the most of his opportunities. On his first catch, Cook broke off a 59 yard score on a deep pass to the middle of the field. He would later pick up 41 yards on his second reception. Cook wound up leading the team with 84 receiving yards.

He'll look for more Week 11 against the Broncos. 


Impact of Owen Daniels' injury?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Just as he seemed to be finding his way in the offense, Ravens tight end Owen Daniels has been sidelined surprisingly in Week 8 after undergoing an undisclosed knee procedure.

We loved Daniels' chances to find success Week 8 against the Bengals after hauling in six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown last week. Now he will miss at least one game, with his status moving forward unknown at this point. Fantasy owners in desperate need of a tight end for Week 8 might want to see if Charles Clay of the Dolphins or Jared Cook of the Rams is available right now.

Long-term, it is impossible to say just how this will impact Daniels. Coach John Harbaugh has not ruled him out for Week 9, but he might be limited even if he is able to return that quickly. Daniels isn't a must-drop Fantasy option, but he also isn't someone you absolutely have to have on your roster.

Still, Daniels was third on the team in targets, and that was with Dennis Pitta playing a huge role before his injury. If you have room on your roster, it might be worth hanging on to Daniels for one week to get a clearer picture.


Hitting the wire for tight ends


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With how up-and-down many tight ends have been this season, identifying the right ones on waivers can be a key. In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tries to pin down the best ones for you to target this week.

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels, coming off a six-catch performance with a touchdown in Week 7, is the top pick for the 41 percent of CBSSports.com leagues in which he is available. A big reason why is a matchup against the Bengals, who have allowed four double-digit Fantasy scoring games by tight ends this season.

The remainder of the top five for the week is rounded out by Coby Fleener of the Colts (44 percent owned), Charles Clay of the Dolphins (34 percent), Jared Cook of the Rams (47 percent) and Kyle Rudolph of the Vikings (32 percent), who makes more sense as a stash option if you can afford the roster space. 


Jared Cook held to 25 yards in upset win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook, targeted 21 times in the previous two games, drew only three targets Week 7 against the Seahawks. He caught all three passes for 25 yards, marking his lowest output this season.

Cook visits the Chiefs in Week 8.


Jared Cook needs more owners


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Among the tight ends who have been active for all of their team's games this season, the leaders in targets per game are Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen. Bet you'll never guess who's third.

Actually, it's not so tough. You're looking at him right now.

For the third straight game, Jared Cook set a season high in targets with 11 Week 6 against San Francisco, and this time, he got the yardage to back it up, going for 74 on four catches. It was just his second game with more than 60 yards, but he has a respectable 12.8 yards per catch.

The problem is his reception-to-target rate is low. Tight ends are usually targeted on underneath stuff, giving them a high conversion rate, but Cook seems to be an exception to the rule.

I say that evens out eventually. Cook has gotten at least eight targets in four of the Rams' first five games. Austin Davis clearly likes throwing him the ball. Sooner or later, he's going to capitalize.

He might even be a worthy short-term replacement for Graham owners. True, the Rams host the Seahawks in Week 7, but that's not as bad of a matchup as it seems. The Seahawks have allowed the third-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends this season.


Jared Cook draws 11 targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook drew a game-high 11 targets in the loss to the 49ers. He caught four passes for 74 yards, but hurt himself with a bad drop and was victimized by a very questionable offensive pass interference call.

The flag wiped out a long gainer late in the first half. Cook has drawn at least eight targets in four of five games entering Week 7 against the Seahawks.


Jared Cook targeted team-high 10 times in Week 5 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook was targeted a team-high 10 times Sunday but managed just four catches for 44 yards in his team's 34-28 loss to the Eagles in Week 5.

Cook caught seven passes for 75 yards, both season highs, on nine targets in Week 3 but saw his production fall despite remaining a focal part of the passing offense. The Rams attempted 49 passes in the loss, and it's possible Cook has trouble reaching double digits in targets over the rest of the season if the high number of pass attempts doesn't stick on a regular basis. Cook has managed 221 yards on 19 receptions but is still looking for his first trip to the end zone. The Rams face the 49ers at home on Monday night in Week 6.


Jared Cook paces Rams with 75 receiving yards vs. Cowboys


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook led the Rams in receiving Sunday, catching seven of his nine targets for 75 yards in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys.

It wasn't all positive for Cook, who appeared to shove past his quarterback on the sideline after a fourth-quarter imcompletion stalled a Rams drive at the Dallas 10-yard line and forced the team to kick a field goal. The pair hooked up for two receptions to open the team's next drive, which would result in a touchdown to bring the team to within three points. Cook has caught 15 of his 21 targets for 177 yards over the first three weeks. He'll get the next week off before the Rams head to Philadelphia in Week 5.


Rams get production from both tight ends in Week 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Rams tight ends Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks shared the load in the passing game against the Buccaneers in Week 2.

Both tight ends were targeted four times by backup Austin Davis. Cook finished as the team's second-leading receiver, catching all four of his targets for 46 yards. Kendricks was held to just one catch for a gain of 7 yards in the first half. He caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 25 yards in a 19-17 victory.

The Rams will be back at home to host the Cowboys in Week 3.


Tight ends pace Rams in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Tight ends Lance Kendricks and Jared Cook were the Rams' most effective pass-catchers in the Week 17 loss at Seattle. Kendricks caught five passes for a team-high 54 yards, while Cook made five grabs for 30 yards and the team's only touchdown.

Cook drew a team-high seven targets, one more than Kendricks. Cook caught a 2-yard score late in the fourth quarter, giving him five touchdowns. He finishes the year with 51 catches for 671 yards, disappointing numbers given his huge contract. Kendricks had 32 receptions for 258 yards and four scores.


Jared Cook catches two balls in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook finished second on the team in receiving yards Sunday, but that was more a result of how little the team utilized the passing game in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers in Week 16.

Cook was targeted just twice in the passing game. He hauled in both passes for 27 yards, with a long reception of 21 yards.

Cook enters Week 17 against the Seahawks with 641 yards receiving on 46 receptions.


Jared Cook not worth starting in Week 16


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook heads into Week 16 against Tampa Bay trying to salvage his season for Fantasy owners. Our advice is to pass on Cook and look elsewhere.

Cook hit a new low in Week 15 against New Orleans with one catch for 8 yards on one target, all season-low marks. He watched as the two other tight ends for the Rams, Cory Harkey and Lance Kendricks, both scored touchdowns against New Orleans with more catches and yards.

Cook has just two games with double digits in Fantasy points on the season and has been a bust. He should not be started against the Buccaneers, who have allowed just three tight ends to score double digits in Fantasy points and six touchdowns.


Several Rams play role in defeat of Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jared Cook is the starting tight end for the Rams, but he was the least productive Sunday against New Orleans with just one catch for 8 yards.

Wideout Austin Pettis led the way among the minor contributors with four catches for 41 yards. Fellow wide receiver Stedman Bailey (2-26) and Chris Givens (1-31) also made it into the stat sheet. Bailey added a 6-yard run.
