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.


Lance Kendricks sits due to hand injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Rams tight end Lance Kendricks (hand) is inactive for Week 10 against the Colts, meaning Jared Cook should see a bigger role in the offense Sunday. Kendricks' absence does not come as a surprise, after he was listed doubtful on Friday's injury report. 

Jared Cook aims to score in consecutive games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook scored his first touchdown Week 9 vs. Tennessee since scoring twice in the season opener against the Cardinals. Cook will now look to do something Week 10 at Indianapolis which he has never done in his career -- score in consecutive games.

Unfortunately, the Colts have allowed just one touchdown to a tight end in eight games. Tight ends average 53.3 receiving yards and 6.5 Fantasy points per game, which is tied for the 10th-lowest average.

Cook came into the season with so much promise and didn't disappoint after scoring twice in the opener. Unfortunately, Cook has not been able to keep pace and now he's adjusting to a new quarterback -- Kellen Clemens. Consider Cook a No. 2 Fantasy tight end for Week 10.


Jared Cook finally scores again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook had a nearly identical performance as the team's previous in Week 9 against the Titans, but this time he found the end zone, in a 28-21 loss.

Cook, facing his former team, hauled in three of six passes thrown his way for 36 yards. He had a long reception of 17 yards, but his biggest play was a 10-yard score in the fourth quarter that briefly tied the game.

Cook hasn't topped 40 yards in any of his last three games, and his touchdown Sunday was his first since Week 1. He will try to build on his success in Week 10 against the Colts. 


Jared Cook faces decent matchup Week 9


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook's production continues to flag, and that might not change in Week 9 against the Titans Sunday.

Cook has topped 40 yards receiving just once in the past four games, and he has largely been a flop since a fast start to the season. Fortunately, the Titans do boast a relatively poor defense against tight ends this season, ranking 21st with 8.4 Fantasy points allowed per game.

Even with a decent matchup, however, Cook is difficult to trust for Fantasy purposes. Consider him more of a bye-week replacement for Week 9. 


Jared Cook draws team-high six targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook was targeted a team-high six times in the loss to the Seahawks. He caught three passes for 31 yards and had a costly 3rd-down drop. 

While Cook isn't producing much, he's led St. Louis in targets two straight weeks. He'll play Tennessee in Week 9.


Jared Cook will disappoint you again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook has done little since his monster Week 1. There's no reason to expect anything different in Week 8.

The Seahawks give up the third-fewest Fantasy points to opposing tight ends (4.9 per game). They've allowed one tight end to score, Garrett Graham in Week 4.

Cook has one fewer touchdown catch than the Rams' No. 2 tight end, Lance Kendricks. Leave Cook reserved Monday night.


Jared Cook sees a few more targets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook saw a slightly bigger role in the offense in Week 7 against the Panthers, in a  30-15 loss. 

Cook was targeted seven times, his highest total since Week 4, and he brought in four passes for 33 yards. 

Cook has been inconsistent this season, and has yet to score since finding the end zone twice in the season opener. He will try to end his shutout streak in Week 8, when the Rams face the Seahawks.


Jared Cook not a threat against the Panthers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook has a tough matchup Week 7 against the Panthers.

Cook has been a huge Fantasy tease this year. After picking up two touchdowns on seven catches Week 1, Cook has not reached those heights again. After his big first week, Cook has just 15 catches in the last five games. 

The Panthers have severely limited opposing tight ends, holding them to just 6.40 Fantasy points per game. In five games, the team has allowed just two touchdowns to tight ends. Up until Week 6, the team had allowed a season-high of 42 yards to tight ends this season. Kyle Rudolph was able to top that Week 6, picking up 97 yards and 1 touchdown. 

The Vikings talked about making an effort to involve Rudolph last week and wound up being successful against a tough defense. The Rams haven't featured any particular receiver this season, and Cook hasn't been particularly successful in recent weeks. It doesn't seem like he's a strong Fantasy play against Carolina. 


Rams tight ends risky for Fantasy purposes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2013) The Rams tight end situation has been unkind to Fantasy owners, as Lance Kendricks has begun to steal some of Jared Cook's rapidly vanishing spotlight. Given the team's unwillingness to feature one or the other, it is hard to recommend either in Week 6 against the Texans.

The Texans are coming off their first poor performance against a tight end, as Vernon Davis racked up 14 Fantasy points and a touchdown. Even with that, however, they have allowed just two touchdowns and 6.4 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends on the season.

At this point, neither Cook nor Kendricks falls into any of our experts' top-20 for tight ends this week. Consider them Cook a slightly better option, but neither should be started with much confidence in Week 6. 


Lance Kendricks overshadowing Jared Cook


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Rams tight end Lance Kendricks was easily more involved than Jared Cook in Sunday's Week 5 win over Jacksonville. Kendricks had four catches and scored in the game while Cook finished with just three grabs for Sam Bradford and the Rams. 

Kendricks scored on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Bradford in the second quarter. It was a nice catch followed by some nifty moves and a dive head first into the corner of the end zone. He finished with four receptions for 37 yards and the score and was targeted six times in the game. 

Cook caught three balls for 26 yards and was targeted just the three times in the game. The tight end went for 10 catches, 141 yards and two touchdowns Week 1, but hasn't scored or done much of anything since. 

Kendricks, 25, has now scored a touchdown in back-to-back games for Bradford. The Rams play at Houston Week 6. 


Jared Cook with solid history against Jaguars


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Rams tight end Jared Cook has a long history playing against his Week 5 opponents, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cook has played against them five times since Oct. 2010 and has 19 catches for 270 yards and a touchdown over that time. The score came back in 2011 in a game that saw Cook make eight catches for 169 yards.

Cook has that kind of ability as he displayed it Week 1 this season against Arizona. He caught seven passes for 141 yards and two scores in that game. Unfortunately, in three games since, Cook has combined for just 10 catches for 99 yards and no scores.

Cook is looking to get back into the end zone against a Jaguars team allowing the ninth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing TEs. Seattle's Zach Miller scored twice against them Week 3 and Coby Fleener found the end zone last week against them on five catches for 77 yards.

Due to the solid matchup and history against Jacksonville, Cook should come alive Week 5 on Sunday and is considered a No. 1 Fantasy tight end for the week.
