New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook tallied five catches on seven targets for 80 yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Cook accounted for half of Drew Brees' passing yardage for the day, including a 46-yard strike in the second half that really boosted his bottom line. Tampa Bay did a fine job of focusing on Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara in this one, which opened up more opportunities for Cook. While Cook is certainly capable of doing this on a more regular basis, this game may go down as one of his better yardage totals for the season. Consider him a low-end TE1 again in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook said he believes he left some plays on the field last season. 'There are still some plays on the film that haunt me and of course, we're still going back over those plays, and running through them, but they're still plays that haunt me that I still wish I could have back,' Cook said.
Huddle Up: Cook came on strong at the end of the year, finishing with more than 700 yards and nine touchdowns. The addition of Emmanuel Sanders could cut into his workload, but Cook is still a safe bet to finish as a TE1.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook finished with four grabs for 54 yards on his four targets in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Dec. 16.
