Saints Optimistic About Jared Cook In 2020

New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook was a disappointment halfway through his first season with the team last year. But Cook's last eight games -- he averaged 19.2 yards per catch -- gave the Saints optimism heading into 2020. New Orleans signed the veteran after he nearly racked up 900 receiving yards with the Raiders in 2018. "We just know he is a one-on-one nightmare, he is a matchup nightmare for a defense. I dont know how to cover the guy. I wouldnt know what to tell them," tight ends coach Dan Campbell said. Part of the reason for Cook's slow start is that he was injured in training camp and didn't get a single snap with Drew Brees in the preseason. Brees also suffered an injury in Week 2 and missed five weeks. Cook caught just 11 passes when Brees was sidelined. He caught 28 passes for 537 yards in the final eight games, and his seven touchdown catches in the second half led all tight ends. Cook ranked first among qualifying tight ends with 10 or more targets in both yards per catch (19.2) and yards per target (14.1) in the second half. The 33-year-old is in a great offense, but he might not see as many targets now that Emmanuel Sanders is in the mix. Cook will be a touchdown-dependent, low-end TE1/high-end TE2 in 2020.

Jared Cook Posts 54 Receiving Yards Against Vikings

New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook caught all five targets for 54 yards in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. What a second half it was for Cook, who scored seven times in his last eight games. The 32-year-old finished the year with 705 receiving yards, second on the Saints, and a career-high nine scores. He was a perfect fit in the offense as a threat over the middle of the field. Cook isn't getting any younger, though he'll likely be a great option at the tight end position in 2020.

Jared Cook Draws Tough Matchup Against Vikings

New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook has been red-hot of late, scoring five touchdowns over the last four games. His matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday is a tough draw as well, as the Vikes have allowed just one touchdown to tight ends all season. However, quarterback Drew Brees has started trusting his new teammate more as the season has gone along. Cook is one of the priciest DFS options at the position, making him a tough sell for lineups, but he does have a solid floor in a top-tier offense.
