From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 15): Cook is stuck in the dumpsterfire that is the Raiders offense. He's worth holding through the bye, but our expectations are being dialed back.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs LAC (6 / 4 / 20 / 0 rec)

Cook had a quiet game but continues to be the go-to guy in the red zone, where he was targeted four times on Sunday On a 1st-and-goal from the 5 yard line, Carr tried to thread it in to him on a quick slant into the end zone despite double coverage, but the play was defended well. He went back to him on second down but again they couldn't connect. In the third quarter, Carr threw an end zone fade to Cook from the 18-yard line. Cook drew a pass interference penalty when the defender pushed him out of bounds while the ball was in the air. Carr picked up a 9-yard gain over the middle and was tackled at the 5-yard line on his fourth red zone target.

2018 Week 4 vs CLE (13 / 8 / 110 / 2 rec)

Cook was the best player on the field for the Raiders. He was consistently able to get open on underneath routes against the notoriously soft Cleveland defense, which drops the safeties way too deep. Cook's size and speed make him a mismatch against single coverage and he has also been doing a great job of finding the soft spots in zone coverage over the middle of the field. Cook scored an 8-yard touchdown on a simple play where he ran to the middle of the end zone and boxed out the defender so Carr could hit him on a back-shoulder throw. He also scored from seven yards out to tie up the game in the final seconds. It was a monster performance for Cook.

2018 Week 3 vs MIA (6 / 5 / 31 / 0 rec)

Cook again played very well and came very close to having a big fantasy game. He twice caught red zone passes and nearly scored. The first came on a well-designed shovel pass on 3rd-and-goal from the nine. Cook had a hole up the middle and dove for the end zone but was ruled down inside the one. Cook later caught a 2nd-and-goal pass off of play action and dove to extend the ball into the end zone. It was initially called a touchdown but review showed the ball just short of the goal line when his knee hit the ground.

2018 Week 2 vs DEN (4 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)

Cook was only targeted four times (none in the final 20 minutes) but looked great again. He held on despite taking a big hit on a short catch just shy of the end zone early and also showed his toughness on a powerful catch and run to open the second half. The biggest difference in his game this season compared to last season is that he seems to be playing with more physicality now. While it was a relatively quiet game, expect Cook to remain one of the primary weapons for the Raiders going forward.

2018 Week 1 vs LAR (12 / 9 / 180 / 0 rec)

Cook took on a starring role against the Rams. His 180 receiving yards were the most for a tight end in Raiders history. The Rams played mostly man defense throughout the night, which left Carr to target whichever pass catcher had the most favorable one-on-one matchup. Most of the time, it was Cook matched up against a safety while Cooper and Nelson faced elite cornerbacks. Cook dominated from the first drive. He lined up in the slot on the first drive, caught a slant and sprinted past the safety for a 45-yard gain. Cook still has elite speed even at age 31. It was just the first of many big plays. Cook ran a deep out route and snagged a 28-yard reception along the sideline despite being held. He also had big gains of 11, 14, and 32 yards with the latter two coming on passes down the seam. Carr was intercepted twice while targeting Cook, however. The first came on an end zone target from 21 yards out. Cook ran a fade route and had a step on the defender but the ball was badly under thrown. The second came near the end of the game on a crossing route when Marcus Peters jumped the route and beat Cook to the spot.
