Jared Cook Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Titans beat writer John Glennon observes that TE Jared Cook has been splitting out wide often early on in training camp.  No surprise here.  Tennessee plans to use the ultra-athletic Cook a lot like the Packers use Jermichael Finley and the Saints use Jimmy Graham.  With veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck now at the helm, we love Cook as a high-upside TE2 with the potential to produce top-10 numbers.

It sounds like Titans OC Chris Palmer has big things in store for TE Jared Cook.  "He knows we are counting on him," Palmer said.  "My main concern is I'm going to ask him to do too many things because he is so athletic."  Cook has all the physical tools to emerge as a dominant pass-catching TE, and it's looking like he'll see plenty of targets this year.  The only thing standing between him and a top-10 fantasy finish is QB play.  Rookie Jake Locker would figure to struggle this year, although Tennessee could still bring in a veteran through free-agency.

After finishing the 2010 season on a high note, Titans TE Jared Cook is ready for a bigger role in 2011.  "That is why I started working out so early this year, because this year is a big year for me. I have to get better,'' Cook said. "It is a year… for me to take advantage of what is in front of me."  Cook is fully expected to enter the 2011 season as Tennessee's starter.  He's one of our favorite breakout candidates at the TE position.

Titans new OC Chris Palmer is excited about what TE Jared Cook can do in his offense.  “I want to get my hands around him right away," Palmer said. "I think he is a special talent."  Seeing increased playing time over the final 6 games of 2010, Cook racked up 24 catches, 292 yards, and 1 TD.  He'll enter 2011 as Tennessee's starting TE and will be a high-upside TE2 to target in fantasy drafts.

In Week 16, Titans TE Jared Cook posted a career-high 96 yards.  This past Sunday, Cook set another personal-best with 7 receptions.  “I just can’t say enough good things about Jared,” QB Kerry Collins said after the game. “From where he is now to where he was at the beginning of the year was like night and day. He’s really learned, really worked at it, and has really figured out what it takes to play and be the kind of tight end he can be. He’s got speed, he can create match-up problems, he’s really good after the catch. The light’s come on for him and it’s shown in the way he’s played.”  After being a complete non-factor through 10 games, Cook racked up 292 yards and a score in the final 6.  He'll be a high-upside TE2 to target this summer.

10:23am EST 12/27/10

Titans TE Jared Cook exploded for 5 catches for a career-high 96 yards and a TD against the Chiefs on Sunday.  Besides the WR-like athleticism we knew he had, Cook also displayed precise route-running and reliable hands.  Clearly more talented than TE Bo Scaife, Cook should open the 2011 season as Tennessee's starting TE.  He'll be a guy to target as a high-upside fantasy backup.

Titans HC Jeff Fisher said he liked what he saw out of 2nd-year TE Jared Cook in Monday night’s preseason matchup with the Cardinals. “He's playing to his speed now and catching the ball. (And) I thought he blocked well.” Cook has been hot and cold this offseason, but remains a special, high-upside talent. At just 23-years-old, he’s a name to keep your eye on in dynasty and keeper leagues.

Titans TE Jared Cook drew rave reviews from QB Vince Young after the conclusion of recent OTAs. "The speed, the height and the hands and the long arms that he has ... he's going to make a lot of plays when he gets more comfortable in the offense," VY said. "He's going to be one of those top tight ends like Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez." We highly doubt Young’s last sentiment, although Cook does have all the tools to be successful. The mental side of the game – in addition to his lack of blocking ability – has really held the 23-year-old back. But with a weak WR corps, Cook could become one of the Titans top options in the passing game if he gets his head on straight. He remains a name to remember in dynasty leagues.

Titans TE Jared Cook is active for today's game against the Texans.  With TE Bo Scaife out, Cook should see plenty of targets as the team's #1 TE.

Both Bo Scaife (knee) and Jared Cook (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice.  We were expecting Cook to play this week and have him ranked aggressively high in our Week 2 player rankings.  We'll have to lower his numbers if he misses Thursday's practice.

Titans TE Jared Cook (ankle) participated in a limited practice today.  Tennessee will push him to play this week because TE Bo Scaife (knee)missed practice again.  If you're hurting at TE, Cook wouldn't be a bad play this week.

Titans TE Jared Cook (ankle) was limited again in practice on Friday and will be a game-time decision.  With TE Bo Scaife out, we're betting Cook gives it a go.

Titans TE Jared Cook (ankle) missed practice yesterday and will be a game-time decision against the Steelers tomorrow night. As much as we love the guy, he’ll have to show us something in regular season action before we recommend starting him.

We'll have to wait another week for rookie TE Jared Cook's regular season debut.  He's inactive tonight with a bum ankle.  TE Bo Scaife is still not a recommended play against Pittsburgh's defense.
