New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has been seeing 'a lot of looks' from QB Drew Brees during training camp, according to Luke Johnson of USA Today Sports.
Huddle Up: Cook is coming off a career year in Oakland, and while there are a few more mouths to feed in New Orleans, he is still a safe bet to deliver midrange TE1 numbers.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has impressed his new teammates so far in OTAs, with QB Drew Brees near the top of the list. 'I'd read a lot of good things about him before he got here, but he's certainly impressed us these first couple of days,' Brees said Thursday, May 23. 'He's got a great feel for the game, and I think he's going to fit very well in our offense. He's got great length, so he's got a big catch radius. You feel confident with those 50-50 balls. You feel like there's a lot of places where you can throw if where he can get it and the other guy can't. Anytime you have a target like that, you feel like that's a good matchup.'
Huddle Up: The big tight-end receiving numbers have been missing in recent seasons for the Saints, and now enter Cook, who finished fifth among fantasy tight ends last season with the Raiders, catching 68-of-101 targets for 896 yards and six TDs. Slot him on your draft board as a mid-level TE1.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook will be given the chance to show 'everything he can do' for the offense, according to tight ends coach Dan Campbell. 'The guy is over 30 and he still runs like the wind. He can absolutely smoke,' Campbell said. 'He's got 35-inch arms, he is long, and he is fast.'
Huddle Up: Cook set career highs in receptions, targets, yards and touchdowns last year in Oakland, and while Drew Brees likes to spread the ball around, he also knows how to utilize a dynamic tight end. Look for Cook to remain a solid TE1 in 2019.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook will sign a 2-year, $15.5 million contract with the team Tuesday, March 25. Cook will receive a guaranteed $8 million in his first year of the deal.
Huddle Up: Cook posted career receiving highs across the board last season with the Raiders, catching 68-of-101 targets for 896 yards and six TDs to finish fifth among fantasy tight ends. Even though the Saints have a few more passing-game weapons than last season's Raiders, Cook's fantasy ceiling is just as high as the Saints have been searching for a reliable, full-time tight end since Jimmy Graham's departure after the 2014 season.
