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.

Three Rams questionable, three others probable for Sunday


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).

The probables are linebackers James Laurinaitis (foot), Daren Bates (groin) and Will Herring (foot).


Rams TE Jared Cook returns to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Rams tight end Jared Cook (back) returned to a limited practice Thursday ahead of Sunday's visit to San Diego, reports ESPN.com.

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.


Jared Cook a sure thing for mediocre production


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) If the assurance of a few catches and 30 or 40 yards with the hope of a big game is good enough for your Fantasy team at tight end, Jared Cook is OK. If not, you should find a better option if possible. It is, after all, the playoffs.

Cook has exceeded 10 points just three times this season - all of them in games in which he scored a touchdown. But he has scored at least six points nine times. He has been steady, but quite unspectacular for the Titans.

Worsening matters this week is that the New Orleans defense ranks sixth in the NFL against opposing tight ends and third overall in both yards given up through the air (2,591) and passing touchdowns surrendered (15).

At this point, it might be tough for those using Cook as a No. 1 tight end to secure a better point producer at that position. But scour your waiver wire for a player who also scores steady points and might have a better matchup. Keep him in your lineups if you must and hope for the best - just don't expect much.


Jared Cook leads the way Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook let the team in receiving Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Cook caught three passes for 49 against Arizona. He was targeted a team-high six times. The Rams had the right idea going to Cook, as the Cardinals have been awful against tight ends all season. Quarterback Kellen Clemens had a tough time getting anything going, which limited all the receiving options on the team. On the Cardinals interception return, Clemens was trying to get the ball to Cook.

Cook will look to bounce back Week 15 against the Saints. 


Jared Cook looking at great matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook could be in for a huge game Week 14 against the Cardinals. 

Arizona has been the worst team against the tight end this season, allowing them to average 14.83 Fantasy points per game. Of the 22 passing touchdowns the team has allowed, 14 of them have been thrown to tight ends. They've been even worse against tight ends lately, as six of the last eight touchdowns passes against the Cardinals have been thrown to tight ends.

Cook has disappointed after a huge Week 1, but he's been able to flash some of his skills lately. In the five games started by Kellen Clemens, Cook has caught 15 balls and scored two touchdowns. It hasn't been a dominant performance, but at least he's found the end zone again. He could be in for another score this week. Arizona has been terrible against tight ends, and Cook remains one of the best weapons the Rams have in the passing game. He's a solid start Week 14.


Jared Cook held under 50 receiving yards again


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook led his team in receiving yards but was not at his best, as he was held under 50 receiving yards for the 10th time this season during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 13.

Cook came down with a 20-yard reception late in the fourth quarter for his longest gain of the day. He caught three of the six passes thrown his way for 49 yards in a 23-13 defeat.

Cook has eight receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown over his last three games played. He'll try to bounce back in Week 14 against the Cardinals in Arizona.


Jared Cook could take step back in San Francisco


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook could have his hands full on the road against a stingy San Francisco defense in Week 13.

Cook has re-emerged as solid Fantasy play as of late, scoring twice over his last three games. He caught four of the five passes thrown his way for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Bears.

Cook will face a San Francisco defense that has allowed only two touchdowns to tight ends over the previous seven games. Opposing tight ends have scored only 5.00 Fantasy points per game in CBSSports.com standard leagues. Consider him a low-end option for Week 13.

Jared Cook scores in Week 12


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Bears. Cook was targeted five times. 

The 80 yards were the most for Cook since his Week 1, 141-yard performance. The touchdown was his second in three games, and his fourth on the season. 

The Rams face the 49ers next Sunday. Cook had four catches for 45 yards when the teams first met, in Week 4. 


Rams tight ends tough to predict


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/22/2013) Rams tight ends Lance Kendricks and Jared Cook both have three touchdowns on the season. While Cook has more receiving yards overall (428 to 172), Kendricks has the better recent performance (not counting his Week 10 inactivity) -- with three touchdowns in his last six games. Cook frontloaded his performance, scoring twice in Week 1 and then once in Week 9. 

Over their last five games, Cook has one game of nine points and four with four points or fewer. Kendricks has one game with nine points, one with six, and three of two or fewer.  While Cook is the better bet in a PPR league, Kendricks actually isn't that far behind -- over their last five games played, Kendricks has seen 20 targets, while Cook has 23. 

This all adds up to two risky tight end plays. Kendricks is more of a touchdown-dependent asset, while Cook is the player who frustrates you to no end -- you drop him and he has a 100-yard game; you then pick Cook back up and start him, and he has two catches for 21 yards in each of his next four. Then you drop him again and the process repeats itself. 

Neither tight end is a suggested start in standard-sized Fantasy formats. But in a desperate situation, it might be wise to go with Cook and his potential over Kendricks and the hope for a touchdown. 


Jared Cook held to second one-catch game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook tied a season-low with one catch during a 38-8 win Week 10 at Indianapolis. Cook had a 17-yard reception Sunday, which bested his season-low 10 yards Week 2 against Atlanta.

Cook was targeted two times Sunday. He has just one touchdown in his last nine games after scoring twice in the opener. The Rams are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 vs. Chicago.
