Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 84 / 1 rec)

Jared Cook must really like playing against the Cardinals secondary. While this year's version was slightly more contained than Week 1 of last year, the story remained the same. Jared Cook streaking past a Cardinals safety for a long touchdown. The victim this week was rookie Deone Bucannon, who failed to press Cook at the line and was beaten badly for it. As Matt Hasselbeck, a former teammate, noted during the game, Cook appears faster with the ball in his hands than when running without it. Not only did he make an impressive over the shoulder catch in stride, but then was able to accelerate out of that, showing off his impressive athleticism. Cook had another impressive long catch and run of 41 yards later in the 3rd quarter, but a penalty during the run negated much of it pushing the Rams out of the red zone before eventually settling for a punt on the drive.

2014 Week 11 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)

The heavy run game in the second half lessened the targets for everyone. But you have to think the experience of Hill will mean some solid targets for Cook over the next few weeks. That unfortunately, didn't happen against Denver. Cook caught 3 balls, and did show some physicality and desire on one 7 yard catch on the first possession after halftime. But for much of the game, the TE position was used to block for Tre Mason, and so Cook's opportunities were few and far between. It's still surprising that St. Louis doesn't make more of an effort to get Cook the ball deep downfield. Aside from Kenny Britt, there simply isn't another deep threat on the team. Cook has the speed and ability to make big plays downfield, and whether Shaun Hill opens that up in future weeks remains to be seen.

2014 Week 12 vs SD (9 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Cook caught 3 passes, all of them short passes over the middle. Cook has degenerated into a short yardage tight end, which is a shame when you consider his speed. But the Rams just aren't getting him the ball downfield, and his value as a tight end has plummeted as a result.

Rams | Jared Cook questionable (Fri Nov 21, 04:04 PM) - St. Louis Rams TE Jared Cook (back) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Our View: Cook has been inconsistent again this year and the Rams pass offense probably won't flourish with Shaun Hill at the helm, so this issue makes it easier to remove Cook from your TE streamer list this week.
