Cook was a stealth top five fantasy tight end last year as it appears the Saints have finally found a good replacement for Jimmy Graham before Drew Brees retires. Cook got off to a slow start after Brees got hurt and then missed time with an ankle injury himself. Once Brees and Cook got back on the field together, the connection put up numbers that few tight ends could match, including seven touchdowns, 537 receiving yards, and over 19 yards per reception in the second half of the season. He is currently being drafted around TE10 and should be considered a solid Plan A if you want to wait on the position. (May 6)

Saints | Jared Cook catches TD pass (Sun Oct 25, 05:23 PM) - New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 32 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted four times during the game.

Our View: Cook wasn't a mainstay in the passing game, but he gathered in a score after juggling it and gave a solid result to anyone who trusted him with the Saints top two wide receivers out.
