Summary

In 2017, Cook had a career-high 54 receptions in his first season with the Raiders. The 31-year old still has excellent speed for a tight end, which allows him to serve the valuable role of cover-two buster down the seam. Cook has never been much of a blocker and is used mostly as if he was a big-bodied wide receiver. In fact, Cook often lined up as a perimeter receiver last season in part due to the Raiders lack of depth at wide receiver. The additions of a pair of bigger receivers, Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant, could limit Cook's looks somewhat and it is unclear exactly how big of a role the new coaching staff envisions for him. While Cook has been a big-play threat, he has not been much of a red zone threat in his career. He has averaged just 1.5 touchdowns per season over the last four years, which limits his fantasy upside compared to many of the other options at the position. Cook's athleticism gives him some upside as a TE2 option despite the lack of touchdown production. (May 28)
