Still not sure about Jared Cook?



We’ve all heard the hype on Jared Cook since he signed with the Rams. Cook gives QB Sam Bradford the big-name TE target that he’s been looking for since being drafted by the Rams in 2010. But with many teams moving to more multiple TE sets, just how effective do people think Cook is going to be with Bradford and the Rams? Joe Owens recently gave his take on Pro Football Focus Fantasy:

“…it seems logical to presume an increase in fantasy output in 2013 for Rams tight ends. At no point has an increase in fantasy output followed a decrease by less than 30 percent. Therefore suggesting that Rams tight ends could finish the season with fantasy numbers in the neighborhood of 187 points. Those numbers by a single tight end would land the player fifth on current Pro Football Focus fantasy projection charts. But now how much of that fantasy pie Jared Cook bites off is another question entirely. Waiting on Jared Cook in mock drafts and then putting a fantasy team’s whole season on the line in hopes of potential panning out with Cook could cost many owners their 2013 fantasy football seasons.”

While it’s promising to hear that the Rams’ tight ends might see an increase in production overall, Owens still questions Cook’s potential involvement in those fantasy numbers. And its not just Owens; our writers at RotoViz have noted some other red flags. Check out this recent article on the Cook and Bradford combo and the March profile on Cook himself.  The fact is, while Cook is probably a fantasy starter, make sure to consider the lack of red zone efficiency from both Bradford and Cook, and the fact that Lance Kendricks might be a potential sleeper to steal many of Cook’s fantasy numbers before drafting him. Otherwise, you might be regretting your decision.
