Jared Cook News
New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook shined during the Saints three-day minicamp in June. It was reported that the veteran had a large amount of catches for explosive plays and routinely beat linebackers and safeties down the field. Cook showed that he had a reliable set of hands, something that the Saints have lacked at the position in recent years. Last year in Oakland, Cook finished the season with 68 receptions, 896 yards and six touchdowns. Cook is a solid upgrade from previous players at the position ( Benjamin Watson and Coby Fleener) and should be a good option for fantasy rosters this season for a position that was difficult to master in 2018. The Saints havent had a true weapon at tight end since Jimmy Graham.
New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook has impressed quarterback Drew Brees so far during organized team activities. "Hes got great length, so hes got a big catch radius. You feel confident with those 50-50 balls. You feel like theres a lot of places where you can throw it where he can get it and the other guy cant. Anytime you have a target like that, you feel like thats a good matchup," Brees said. Cook finished with 68 catches for 896 yards and six touchdowns with Oakland last year and should be a big part of New Orleans' offense in 2019, making him a strong TE1 option in drafts.
The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign free-agent tight end Jared Cook, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cook, who turns 32 next month, had a career year with the Raiders in 2018, catching 68 passes for 896 yards and six touchdowns. The veteran can stretch opposing defenses down the seam and should open up more space for star receiver Michael Thomas on the outside. While it would be foolish to expect Cook to put up better numbers than he did in Oakland, he should remain a strong TE1 option in the high-flying offense of the Saints.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said the team would like to re-sign impending free-agent tight end Jared Cook, but he knows the market for his services will be competitive. He'll be in high demand after he set career highs across the board in catches (68), targets (101), yards (896) and touchdowns (six) for the Raiders. Given the sad state of the tight end position in fantasy, Cook was a strong TE1 this year and will likely be drafted as one again this year, depending on where he lands. Staying in Oakland might be the best for his value.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook posted a very slow game against the Chiefs to end the season. He finished with only three catches for 28 yards and was caught looking bad on an interception. Cook was looking like a top-tier fantasy tight end for a few weeks when he had four touchdowns in a six-week stretch but ended the season scoreless in four straight weeks and three or receptions in three of those four games. He is under contract with the Raiders next season and should make a mid-tier fantasy option due to the inconsistency he showed at times this year.
