The Buffalo Bills may be interested in signing someone like Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley or Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook in free agency, in the opinion of Forbes' Curtis Rush.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 71 yards against the NFC in the 2019 Pro Bowl.
Fantasy Spin: Cook posted career highs in receptions (68), yards (896) and touchdowns (six) this season. He likely will receive plenty of interest if he hits the free-agent market and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues next season.
Oakland Raiders impending free-agent TE Jared Cook will be re-signed if head coach Jon Gruden has his way, but Gruden admitted that Cook will be a popular name on the free-agent market.
Fantasy Spin: Cook was one of the few bright spots for the Raiders this season, and maybe the lone bright spot. He's a top-five fantasy tight end candidate now after finishing 2018 as the TE5.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said the team would like to re-sign impending free-agent tight end Jared Cook, but he knows the market for his services will be competitive. He'll be in high demand after he set career highs across the board in catches (68), targets (101), yards (896) and touchdowns (six) for the Raiders. Given the sad state of the tight end position in fantasy, Cook was a strong TE1 this year and will likely be drafted as one again this year, depending on where he lands. Staying in Oakland might be the best for his value.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook posted a very slow game against the Chiefs to end the season. He finished with only three catches for 28 yards and was caught looking bad on an interception. Cook was looking like a top-tier fantasy tight end for a few weeks when he had four touchdowns in a six-week stretch but ended the season scoreless in four straight weeks and three or receptions in three of those four games. He is under contract with the Raiders next season and should make a mid-tier fantasy option due to the inconsistency he showed at times this year.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Cook should be able to play this week as long as he can deal with the pain from his injured ribs. He has been on a cold streak over the last few weeks but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.
Oakland Raiders DB Montrel Meander (quad) did not practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs. DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable. CB Gareon Conley (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. TE Jared Cook (ribs) and C Rodney Hudson (ankle, knee) were limited in practice Friday but no longer appear on the injury report. DT Johnathan Hankins (shoulder), S Karl Joseph (neck), OL Kelechi Osemele (toe), RB Jalen Richard (ankle), FB Keith Smith (calf), TE Lee Smith (back), LB Kyle Wilber (hamstring) and OL Denver Kirkland (illness) were full participants at practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Fantasy Spin: Cook appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 17, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is active this week.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Fantasy Spin: Owners should know more about Cook's status for the Week 17 game later in the week. He is coming off two disappointing games but has been one of the better tight ends in the NFL this season. He can be a starting option in all leagues if he is active.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook was unable to make a big impact against the Broncos, as the running game carried most of the offense. Cook finished with only two catches for 20 yards and no touchdowns, which gives him only two catches in each of his last two games. Cook had been one of the most consistent fantasy options in the Raiders offense throughout the season, but things have slowed as the season comes to an end. He has one final game to round off his strong season, as he is up against the Chiefs, who have a very soft pass defense, which is shown by Cook's stats from the first time they played. He had seven catches for 100 yards and one touchdown, a level of production which should be within the range of outcomes this coming week.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook was kept in check in Week 16 Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos, securing only two of three targets for 20 yards.
Fantasy Spin: Cook let down his fantasy owners big time in this one, though to be fair, the 10-year veteran has basically been a godsend for those trying to shore up the tight end position on their roster. In fact, he's already logged career bests in touchdowns, receptions and yards. Despite the off night, he'll keep his TE1 status entering the season finale.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook managed just two grabs for 23 yards on five targets in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Spin: Cook entered on a heater with back-to-back 100-yard games, and he had three scores in the previous four games. Fantasy owners were certainly disappointed in this one. He'll look to rebound in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook had a game to forget in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He ended with just two catches for 23 yards and no touchdowns, which is a departure from his recent production. He had posted over 100 yards or a touchdown in four straight games, making him the best fantasy option on the Raiders. He will have a chance to return to that production versus the Broncos next week, a team who have struggled against tight ends all season.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook is the best fantasy option on the team this Sunday against the Bengals. Cook has over 100 yards in two straight games along with having three touchdowns in three of his last four games. He also comes in with six or more targets in four of his last five games, showing that he is truly the best and most consistent option the Raiders have in the passing game. He has a great matchup this week against the Bengals who are 27th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against the pass this season.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook hopefully will be a high priority for the Raiders to re-sign this offseason, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Fantasy Spin: Cook is having the best season of his career and has posted back-to-back 100-yard games. He should be a weekly starting option for the rest of this season and likely will be a No. 1 tight end in drafts next season.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook finished with seven receptions on 10 targets for 116 yards in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: After a stretch of quiet games, Cook has delivered back-to-back 100-yard efforts. He will be a solid TE1 option heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook led the team in receiving during Sunday's win against the Steelers. Cook has shown to be the most consistent member of the offense and today was no different, as he ended with seven catches for 116 yards and no touchdowns. He had a three-game touchdown streak active coming into this game but wasn't able to extend it despite having 10 targets, which were a team-high. Cook will continue to be a very strong fantasy option as we close out the season.
Raiders' TE Jared Cook had 7 receptions for 116 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Steelers. It was Cook's 2nd consecutive 100+ yard receiving game. He has averaged 7 catches with 108 receiving yards in those games.
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook has touchdowns in three straight games and is looking to extend that this Sunday against the Steelers. Cook has five or more targets in four straight weeks, which is a promising level of involvement in the passing game since the Raiders are dealing with so many injuries in the passing game. The Steelers come in with the 28th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against tight ends this season, which is a very favorable matchup and should allow him to continue his recent fantasy production.
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook caught seven of his eight targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in a 40-33 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Cook has scored in three straight games, and he has three 100-yard efforts. He has become one of the steadier fantasy options at the position, and Cook has become a borderline top-five TE1.
