Raiders | Another limited practice for Jared Cook

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 17:09:15 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The nine-year veteran should be good to go for Sunday, as this seems like it'll be typical concerning his practice habits for the duration of the campaign. He's on pace for a career high in receptions in the early going, and with a nice matchup on tap versus the Redskins, he could end up being a very useful TE1 this weekend.

Raiders | Limited practice for Jared Cook

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:48:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Cook has been a solid part of the passing game and has recorded nine catches and 81 yards in the first two weeks of the season. Cook should be on fantasy rosters but probably can stay on the bench this week.

Raiders | Jared Cook frequently targeted

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 10:14:49 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook has been thrown to often by QB Derek Carr this offseason, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur. Carr is excited about what Cook brings to the table. "When you add a guy like Jared Cook that runs a 4.3 [40-yard dash] or a 4.4 and he can outrun [defensive backs], [you] can throw him out wide and run different kinds of routes with him," Carr said. "We can do that kind of stuff because he is that talented."

Fantasy Tip: Cook actually ran a 4.49 40-yard dash, but Carr's point is taken. Cook does give the Raiders another downfield weapon. The problem is Cook isn't even technically starting, at least not yet. Lee Smith was listed as the starting tight end on Oakland's initial depth chart. Cook does possess the most fantasy value among Raiders tight ends, though.

Raiders | Lee Smith listed as starter

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 11:16:37 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Lee Smith is listed as the starting tight end ahead of TE Jared Cook on the Raiders' initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat of a surprise. Cook is in his first offseason with the Raiders, though, so he may still be acclimating to a new offense, personnel, etc. Cook has more fantasy upside, but Smith is a deep sleeper now given his No. status in a high-scoring offense.

Raiders | Jared Cook a matchup problem

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 19:44:54 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook will be a matchup problem over the middle and help create space for the rest of the offensive playmakers, according to quarterbacks coach Todd Downing. "He's a matchup nightmare for linebackers and most safeties," Downing said. "He really brings a sense in the passing game of a mismatch that we can count on week in and week out."

Fantasy Tip: There is no denying that Cook has the physical tools to be a weapon in the passing game, but consistent production has eluded him throughout his career. Consider him a high-upside TE2.

Raiders | Jared Cook ready to contribute

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 19:52:03 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook said his plan is to "make plays and catch touchdowns" for his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Cook has the most upside among Oakland's tight ends, but consistent production has always been an issue. Even if he starts, he should be drafted as a TE2.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Cook remains a TE2 despite potentially being the Raiders' starting tight end.

Raiders | Jared Cook to sign with Oakland

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 14:31:35 -0700

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) will sign an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cook will be an underrated weapon in Oakland's offense, assuming he starts ahead of Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera. He has the potential to turn into Derek Carr's safety blanket and go-to red-zone target, but don't assume that will happen. Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree will continue to see most of Carr's throws. Cook remains in backup fantasy tight end territory for now.

Raiders | Jared Cook will visit Oakland

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 15:58:03 -0700

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) is expected to meet with the Oakland Raiders if he does not sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: This landing spot would make more sense for Cook. He would be competing for the starting job with Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera. Even if that job is won, however, he would likely still be sharing the field with Walford and Rivera. The most likely case is that Cook will be a backup fantasy tight end wherever he lands.
