Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches three passes against the Chargers.

Cook gained 35 yards on his three receptions. The athletic tight end had a solid year in his first for the Raiders, catching 54 passes for 688 yards and two touchdowns. It'll be interesting to see how a new coaching staff uses him next season, assuming he's back in Oakland.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches one pass against the Eagles.

Cook gained 15 yards on his lone reception (two targets), and he also drew a penalty on a double-move deep shot. Cook only had two receptions for 14 yards in his first matchup against the Chargers, and they're solid against opposing tight ends, so he's not a recommended fantasy option against them next week.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches two passes in Week 15.

Cook gained 17 yards on his two receptions against the Cowboys. He has upside in fantasy lineups, but Cook has become difficult to trust.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook leads team in receiving on Sunday.

Cook caught five passes for 75 yards, including a 29-yard touchdown. The veteran tight end benefitted from garbage time with Oakland down 26-0 entering the fourth quarter, as Derek Carr and the offense barely did anything for most of the game. Cook has been quiet recently, but a late surge in a convincing loss shouldn't suddenly make him a reliable fantasy starter in Week 15. At best, he will be a low-end TE1 against Dallas.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook held in check as Raiders top the Giants.

Cook had just one reception for nine yards, which is extremely disappointing in a cupcake matchup with the Giants. Clive Walford actually had a bigger day with Cook banged up a little bit in the win, and Cook looks like a risky play heading into the fantasy playoffs after two-straight sub-par performances. The Raiders face the Chiefs in a huge AFC West matchup in Week 14.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook held to one reception in Week 12 loss.

It went for one yard. Cook also had a one-yard touchdown that would have saved his fantasy day overturned on review. Fortunately, he gets to face the Giants in Week 13, so he will remain a solid TE1.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught two passes for 36 yards in Sunday's blowout loss.

Cook's 26-yard reception was Oakland's longest play of the game, as New England nearly shut them out in Mexico City. The veteran tight end should be better against Denver next week, and he can be in lineups as a quality TE1.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook plays great in Raiders’ win.

Cook went over 100 yards for the second game in a row, catching eight of nine targets for 126 yards, with a long of 35 yards against the Dolphins. Derek Carr looked his big tight end’s way early, as Cook converted two key long third downs on the opening drive for Oakland. With at least 57 yards in each of his last three games, Cook will be in the TE1 conversation when Oakland returns from its Week 10 bye.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches four passes in Raiders' loss.

Cook was a reliable target for Derek Carr, gaining 57 yards on his four receptions against the Bills. Through half the season, Cook is on pace for 62 receptions, 746 yards, and two touchdowns, and the receptions would be a career-high. In Week 9, Cook faces a Dolphins team that has not been very good against opposing tight ends this season.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook comes up clutch in Raiders' win.

Cook caught six of seven targets for 107 yards against the Chiefs, including a catch with 18 seconds to go that was initially ruled a touchdown but set up the Raiders for the game-winner with no time left in the game. It was Cook's first 100-yard game as a Raider, and he had another near-touchdown on a throw to the end zone on a corner route where it looked like he might have been interfered with. Cook is in the TE1/TE2 discussion next week when he faces a Bills team that's tough against tight ends.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook gets three targets against the Chargers.

He caught two passes for 14 yards in the Raiders' loss. There could be some opportunities down the field for Cook against the Chiefs on Thursday night, but there might be better TE options out there.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught three passes for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

He also lost a fumble on the first drive of the game, and it was returned for a touchdown by cornerback Jimmy Smith. Cook should be better once Derek Carr returns to the lineup, which could come as early as next week against the Chargers. However, Los Angeles has already shut down Travis Kelce (one yard) and Evan Engram (zero yards) this season.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught three passes for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.

The Raiders have actually made a point to get Cook involved through four weeks, but he's on pace for just a 64/680/4 line. He isn't a recommended fantasy option against the Ravens next week.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught four passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Washington doesn't defend tight ends well, and Cook was the only thing working for the Raiders in a game they got dominated in. Oakland has focused on getting their tight end involved, and they should do so again with the Broncos on deck next Sunday. Still, he's just a streaming option.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook gets four targets in Week 2.

Cook had four receptions for 25 yards versus the Jets. He's been targeted a good amount by Derek Carr through two games and will have some big weeks, but there are better options at tight end with the Raiders offense running mostly through Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and the running backs.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches all five Week 1 targets.

Quarterback Derek Carr and Cook appear to have a solid connection, and it looks like the athletic tight end is going to be used a good amount this season. He had 56 yards on his five receptions against the Titans. We'll see how he fares in Week 2 against the Jets, but Cook is worth a look on the waiver wire.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches two passes in Week 3 of the preseason.

Cook caught both of his targets in the game. He's locked in as Derek Carr's primary tight end in 2017, so the athletic tight end should have some good games in 2017. Cook is going outside the top 15 tight ends in fantasy drafts.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught one pass for 16 yards on Saturday night.

Cook will be extremely inconsistent on the Oakland offense. Some fantasy owners will likely target him late in drafts, but you should use your roster spot on someone else.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook is signing with the Raiders, according to Ian Rapoport.

Derek Carr has reportedly been recruiting Cook big time. Cook will start for Oakland, and they now have a lot of depth at tight end with Clive Walford also in the mix. The Raiders offense keeps getting more explosive, with now Cook and Cordarrelle Patterson added in the recent days. Cook should be a mid-low end TE1 this season.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook will visit the Raiders, according to Ian Rapoport.

Cook visited the Seahawks and Vikings yesterday and today, but hasn't gotten a deal yet. The Raiders might be the best spot for Cook's fantasy value. He should find a new team within the week.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Report: Jared Cook return to the Packers "now out of the question."

Rob Demovsky reports that the negotiations are "100 percent done." Earlier today, Adam Schefter reported that the two sides have stopped negotiating, and it appears things were bad enough that they won't be talking again and Cook will be looking singing with another team.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

The Packers and tight end Jared Cook have stopped negotiating, according to Adam Schefter.

Aaron Rodgers is not going to be happy about this. Cook will now visit with other teams. They could always circle back and negotiate a deal, but it looks like there is a chance Aaron Rodgers loses one of his key targets.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook gets team-high 12 targets in NFC Championship.

Cook caught seven passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. He did also have a couple of drops in the game. The Packers offense was a lot better when Cook was on the field this season, and we would expect they what they can to bring him back in 2017. If Cook is back with Green Bay, he'd be a worthy TE1 option in fantasy drafts.

Jared Cook catches pass on the sideline to set up FG to send the Pack to NFC Championship.

Cook had six receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown. He led the Packers in receiving and scored his touchdown off play-action at the goal line, but his best catch was a 36-yarder down the sideline to get the Packers in field goal range with three seconds to go in the game. Cook had great body control to keep his knees off the boundary and keep his feet in bounds for the catch. Cook has been a big difference maker for the Packers' offense.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook gets targeted nine times in playoff win.

Cook had five receptions for 48 yards. He has been a good weapon for Aaron Rodgers lately. The Packers have flexed him out wide at times and he's a mismatch against many defenders. He'll try to keep it going against the Cowboys in the Divisional Round.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's in over Detroit.

Cook was second on the team with eight targets. The veteran tight end finishes his first year in Green Bay with 30 catches for 377 yards and one touchdown in 10 games as he fought injuries throughout the season. It wouldn't be surprising to see Cook enjoy a breakout this postseason if the Packers are going to make a run.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches long pass in Packers' win.

Cook caught a beautiful deep ball for 30 yards against the Vikings in the second half and seems to have established himself as a threat within the Packers offense. He's a volatile TE1, and had Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback which gives him upside.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook caught six passes for 85 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Cook was second to Jordy Nelson in catches, yards, and targets on Sunday as the Packers took advantage of a depleted Bears linebacking core. The veteran tight end should be viewed as a volatile TE1 for the final two weeks of the season.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook catches one pass before leaving game with injury.

Cook had one catch for 15 yards before leaving with a chest injury.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook has second consecutive quiet week.

He caught three passes for 19 yards. He's the Packers primary receiving tight end, but is a risky fantasy option. He can remain on waiver wires.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Cook has one catch Week 12.

It went for seven yards. The Packers tight end had a difficult matchup versus the Eagles, but it doesn't get any easier next week against the Texans. He shouldn't be in lineups for Week 13.

Jared Cook | Raiders TE

Jared Cook has up-and-down game on Sunday Night Football.

Cook led the Packers with six catches and 105 yards, and also caught a six-yard touchdown, but had his fair share of mistakes. Aaron Rodgers will have to live with the mistakes because the Packers need all the scoring they can get with the defense playing so bad. Cook will stay off the TE1 radar with a matchup with the Eagles for Week 12.
