Rams | Jared Cook slights coaches?

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 05:45:23 -0800

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook said the team was outplayed and out-coached Thursday, Dec. 11, against the Arizona Cardinals. "We got outplayed, we got out-coached, and we just put a bad display out there," Cook said. When asked to elaborate on what he meant by being "out-coached," Cook replied: "Not really. It's pretty self-explanatory. We got outplayed and out-coached. All we put up was six points and didn't get in the (end zone) not once tonight. That's a pretty unsuccessful night if you ask me."

Rams | Full practice for Jared Cook

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 13:29:51 -0800

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook (back) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Oakland Raiders have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in their past three games, and Cook ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has seen 14 targets in the past two weeks. There is plenty of upside, but Cook is far from a slam-dunk option.

Rams | Jared Cook limited at practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 15:17:55 -0800

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook (back) was limited at practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is it looks like Cook has a good chance to play against the San Diego Chargers. The bad news? Well, the Bolts have been very stingy to opposing tight ends all year, averaging just 5.38 fantasy points to the position all season. Cook ($4,900) doesn't seem like the smartest FantasyScore option in Week 12.

Rams | Jared Cook out Wednesday

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 16:06:13 -0800

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook (back) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Cook ($4,900), had just three grabs for 19 yards last weekend, and he hasn't had more than three catches in a game since Oct. 13 against the San Francisco 49ers. The San Diego Chargers haven't been kind to the position this year, either, allowing just 5.38 fantasy points per game. Cook is a weak play this weekend.

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 22:05:04 -0700

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook managed just one catch for 10 yards in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Cook took a giant step backward after his sensational debut with the team in Week 1. He remains a strong TE1 in most fantasy leagues, despite nearly being invisible in his one.

Rams | Jared Cook explosive in debut

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 20:04:30 -0700

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook rolled up seven receptions for 141 yards and two scores in the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals, marking the second-highest yardage total of his career. It was also the first multi-score of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Cook almost had a third touchdown on a long play in the first half, but he was stripped inside the 5-yard line after a long run, and the Cardinals recovered the ball in the end zone. It was a pretty great start for Cook and his fantasy owners. He remains a Top 10 option at his position.

Rams | Team might carry extra TE

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 08:58:18 -0700

The St. Louis Rams might be forced to carry an extra tight end on the 53-man roster. TEs Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks are atop the depth chart, but a leg injury to TE Cory Harkey (leg) might mean TEs Philip Lutzenkirchen, Mike McNeill or Zach Potter find their way onto the final roster to start the season.

Rams | Jared Cook has confidence

Mon, 01 Jul 2013 10:19:33 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and other team members see TE Jared Cook as a completely different player than the one he coached with the Tennessee Titans. "Absolutely night and day difference," said CB Cortland Finnegan. "I'm going to be the first to say that I was maybe like, 'Ahh ...' (when the Rams signed Cook), but when he got there, he's been tearing it up like I've never seen. He's comfortable, he's back where he wants to be and I'm excited to have him."

Fantasy Tip: The Rams don't have many aerial threats outside of rookie Tavon Austin, so Cook could surprise some folks with his versatility. Consider him a nice sleeper option off the waiver wire or with a late-round flier pick in deeper leagues.

Rams | Jared Cook will move around

Sun, 30 Jun 2013 09:07:39 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the team will move TE Jared Cook around this season. "He's going to play all over the place," Fisher said. "We've even got him in the backfield, so we've got some good things for him." Fisher said Cook and QB Sam Bradford have spent a lot of time together this offseason in order to build chemistry.

Rams | New-look offense developing

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 14:56:56 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is working with the same offensive coordinator in consecutive seasons for the first time in his career, but plenty has changed about the team's offense. With RB Steven Jackson gone, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will now run the O through Bradford while trying to bust more big plays. "The speed that we have acquired and what we have on the outside now -- and even the inside -- it suits us more to spread it out and play more one-back this year," Bradford said. He also thinks defenses will have to design specific coverages for some of the speed weapons, a reversal from St. Louis' more predictable offense last season.

Rookie WR Tavon Austin is lining up in the slot, on the outside and in the backfield. Schottenheimer said Austin Pettis has had the strongest offseason of any Rams wideout. TE Jared Cook and WR Brian Quick deepen the amount of players that St. Louis hopes bolsters their red-zone potency.

Fantasy Tip: This Rams offense boasts a lot of intrigue that'll come at cheap prices in fantasy drafts. Bradford's risk has a bit more of an attractive potential behind it as a fantasy backup. Austin may become overvalued eventually but would pass as a WR4 on draft day, along with Chris Givens, their biggest breakthrough player last year. Cook might be a borderline TE1 for most of the year, if not better. Pettis and Quick might be sneaky late-rounders or free-agent bids. You can't write off this offense anymore, at least not for the cost of its pieces.

Rams | Jared Cook said TEN offense didn't fit him

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 06:42:30 -0700

St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook said the Tennessee Titans' offense didn't fit him, and he likes what he sees in St. Louis. "I think I'm on an elevator going up," Cook said.

Rams | Chris Givens bulks up

Mon, 27 May 2013 22:35:47 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens connected with QB Sam Bradford on at least a few deep balls in practice Friday, May 24. Givens has added muscle and appears ready to handle a full season's workload.

Fantasy Tip: The added potency of new weapons - TE Jared Cook among them - may give Bradford more cred as a high-upside QB2. Givens showed big-play flashes last year and could be a WR4 in standard-scoring formats.

Rams | Sam Bradford appears to be building chemistry with new TE

Sat, 25 May 2013 09:06:14 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford appeared to have good chemistry with TE Jared Cook during organized team activities Friday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Cook probably will be the team's No. 1 tight end this season and should be involved in the passing game. Cook should be viewed as a solid No. 2 option for fantasy teams this season.

Rams | Lance Kendricks dealing with injury

Fri, 24 May 2013 15:05:18 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said TE Lance Kendricks (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will continue his rehab. Kendricks was not able to participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Kendricks lost some of his fantasy value when the team signed Jared Cook this offseason but there is a chance both will be on the field at the same time. Kendricks should be considered as a weak No. 2 tight end this season because Cook likely will be the team's main receiving tight end.

Rams | Jared Cook agrees

Tue, 12 Mar 2013 15:39:27 -0700

The St. Louis Rams reached an undisclosed agreement with free-agent TE Jared Cook (Titans).

Fantasy Tip: Cook and Lance Kendricks aren't prototypical pass-catching tight ends, but Cook could emerge as a nice alternative option for Sam Bradford in Brian Schottenheimer's offense. Cook should be considered before Kendricks, but only in deep or two-TE leagues.

"We feel we can give him an opportunity to catch more balls, be more productive and be more efficient without overworking him at the position."

Titans | Jared Cook sees himself as WR

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 18:21:43 -0800

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent TE Jared Cook sees himself as more of a wide receiver than a tight end and likely will look to be considered as a wide receiver if he receives the franchise tag. Cook would earn around $6 million if he is tagged as a tight end but would earn around $10.5 million if he gets the wide receiver tag. Cook could make a good argument that he should be seen as a wide receiver because he lined up as the slot receiver on 56 percent of his snaps in 2012. The two sides are expected to discuss a long-term deal but significant progress is not expected to be made.
